    I picked up a set of the bubble gum pucks aboot a week ago to replace my ASL's. I lost one of my ASL's sliding down a sketchy road. The holes haven't caused any problems for me yet and they do feel better than Sector 9 and Loaded pucks. It's awesome to catch a whiff of bubble gum after busting a long pendy. I like them for now but I think I'll be purchasing some Super Atoms again next. I say try out the Holesom pucks if you're interested. Def a nice change from the usual white, non-scented slide pucks.

    Saw them on the homepage the other day and I just so happen to be lookin for materials to make some DIY gloves. Happenstance or Fate?

    seems like a cool idea. cant decide if itd be more of a novelty item or not.

    i dont think id be worried about the holes. probably gunna pick myself up a pair and try it out

    Just so everyone knows, USUALLY stock pucks that come on S9, Loaded and a few other gloves aren't the greatest. Just as a heads up sort of thing. Also, what's the diameter of these pucks?

    we shipped three hundred and sixty sets to our european distributor 2 weeks ago. they may or may not have gotten the pucks into shops, not sure yet, but they may be waiting on our gloves we still need to send.

    I like em! Although there really isn't that strong of a smell from the Glowsome - but they do glow.

    Hey Holesom - how about a free deck for the first person to fill their holes with road debris!

    I'd buy some if they were available in the UK. Those distributors you've sent them to seem to have eaten them.

    i still don't understand the holes and their benefit. I never thought of my pucks as being heavy. Does it really make that much of a difference performance wise? From a marketing perspective Holesom may want to make pucks without holes and please everyone. The formula and shape are very appealing without the holes. Its a simple solution and will satisfy the other 30% which includes me I guess.

    I dont like the holes, I feel that they shred off near the holes. I love the pucks, but they wear too quickly.
    Also, the bubble gum smells great. I will probably buy another pair after these die, but i will also want to try something else.

    You have the wrong thread buddy. Different gloves fit differently. really small safely translates to XS. 80% of the time it works... everytime.

    Holesom sells pucks with gloves as well as just pucks. I just figured someone here might have bought the set since it's basically $15 for the pucks and $15 for the gloves which is a pretty good price for slide gloves. Plus with the cost of shipping and the limited availability of Holesom stuff around here (and places with reasonable shipping to Canada), it's a better bang for my buck if i buy the gloves + pucks.

    Unfortunately, because of my small hands, I can't seem to find a pair of cheap work gloves that everyone is so fond of.
