I never used a glove for casting braid when I did, sure for landing fish but not for casting, the fingers were cut off..I used to throw braid for heavy stuff, 4-5 oz plugs and 50-80lb line. Trick is to have your drag tight so it wont slip at all in a cast and also not to have the braid in a groove below a knuckle on your finger but on the pad of the tip.

We don't use bionic fingers to spin with, we use grandwaves and toriums and trinidads unless it is light stuff and 1.5 oz sorta lures then you are a softie if you need a glove.;)
