Roll finger goalkeeper gloves are one of the most popular and traditional cuts currently available.
They are named "roll finger" because the back of hand is connected to the palm and does not use gussets. The result is the latex that is rolled/curved around the fingers provides great latex contact with the ball, but does not feel as snug or tight in comparison to negative cut gloves, or hybrids that use negative.
While it does provide a comfortable feel, some may view it as a slightly larger or bulkier cut when compared to negative type gloves.
Negative cut goalkeeper gloves and hybrids that utilise this style, have become increasingly popular over the past years, particularly across Europe. They are similar to the flat cut in that they use a single piece of latex attached to the backhand via gussets. The key difference is that the stitching/gussets are inside the glove. This provides a much tighter and snug fit with control on the ball that is more true to your hand. Due to this, gloves utilising this type of cut will wear slightly quicker than roll finger for example.
The Negative Roll cut is a hybrid style that combines negative and roll finger to produce an even greater level of comfort, fit and feel.
The fingers are rolled in the same way for any roll finger glovel, but the inside of the palm is stitched much like a negative glove. The benefits of this combination mean that if a snug fit is your thing and you are a fan of negative gloves, you can have an even better fit but with more latex contact on the ball thanks to the rolled fingers. For those used to a more open or loose fitting glove you may want to consider going one size up when choosing a glove with this cut.
The flat palm cut is a classic and still popular to this day. On a flat palm cut you will see that its stitched gussets are located on the outside vs the inside of cuts that utilise negative, this gives a more looser feel. The cut also consists of one single piece of latex attached to the back of the glove, with the gussets in between the fingers and palm.
The term hybrid simply means a combination, and does not actually refer to a specific cut.
An example of a hybrid cut would be a combined negative and roll finger cut for a more snug and true feel as opposed to a traditional negative cut.
Is another example of a Hybrid Cut, first introduced 2014 with the release of the Nova Type 1.
It combines stitch-less roll fingers and flat palm to create a unique and comfortable feel that provides the keeper with a pre-curved shape developed to aid ball catching and control. It is a very snug fit.
Those that are used to a more loose or spacious glove may want to try going one size up. For keepers used to a snug comfortable feel you will be right at home.
Medius Cut is a Hybrid Cut that combines negative and roll finger to create another unique feel and style. The middle two fingers are negative while the outside fingers are rolled.
This was developed to create a snug and true feel for your middle fingers as they wrap around the ball where as the outside roll fingers provide that additional latex to ball contact, improving grip in core ball to glove touch points.
