track glove recomendations

Want some opinions on good gauntlet goves. I have short fingers so looking for gloves that are suited for people with short fingers. I had the A* sp 2 they felt to thin and tended to slid down, had 3 sets of Frank Thomas rage but the stitching sucks and is the reason I'm getting them replaced, also have a pair of dainese not sure what model and I love these gloves but they were close to the 180 price tag so not wanting to pay they for an extra set.

They took a while before you feel comfortable but once the reach comfy levels they are pretty good.

But keep in mind they are 250 USD gloves. I like the Dainese Full Metal Racer ones as well.

A* Sp1's are decent. They are really stiff at first, I would consider trying them on at a store before ordering.

No track experience but use Held gloves for the street. They make top notch gloves for the track also but are kinda pricy.
