recommend me some gloves

ok, so i called newenough and it seems i won't be getting the gloves i ordered.

http://www.newenough.com/closeouts/...ycle_glove.html

apparently they are out and since teknic is no longer around they aren't getting any more in. i wonder when they were planning to tell me this, i mean they already have my money and i'm sans gloves. anyways, today they told me to find some other gloves i like and they'd bring the price down, or they can credit my card back. at least their customer service is really nice... this is where you guys come in, recommend me some gloves =) doesn't have to be from newenough. thanks

edit:
any thoughts on these JR's

Joe Rocket GPX 3.0 are my favorite gloves. Have crashed in them many times, and they held up awesome. I highly recommend them!

Will you be racing or street riding? If street do you want textile or leather? Jus askin.

I've crash tested the A* GP Pro's and GP Techs a few times. . . all have held up extremely well. Don't know how much you're wanting to spend. I got my Techs for a good deal at $170.

What would you say are the differences between the Pro and the Tech? The last time I looked at it, I thought the Pro offers more safety than the Tech, but the Tech costs more?

Also, which one would you recommend? I'm leaning towards the Pro's.

I had the 2006(I believe) style Pros, and the 2008 Techs, so they're not completely comparable. You'll be happy with either glove if you're looking for a full gauntlet style.

My Pros lasted me almost 2 1/2 years through all types of weather, and 2 crashes.

The tech's have kangaroo palms and external stitching. Maybe extra kevlar on the upper hand area. Both are superior gloves. I have the techs, which I highly recommend.
