Initial glove shipments sell out over the holidays

STUART, Fla. – The phenomenon is everywhere. You see it on TV and in most major retailers. Copper compression technology is red hot in the sports and medical world and now golfers will be introduced to the Copper Tech glove at the PGA Merchandise Show, January 27-29, in Orlando, Fla.

The innovative Copper Tech gloves, made for both men and women, are like having three gloves in one. First, each glove is made with form flex technology designed with a compression fit so one size fits all. Copper Tech gloves expand and contract to fit men and women sizes small to extra-large. Second, Copper Tech gloves are engineered with a non-slip patent-pending spider weave silicon technology which reduces wear and allows golfers to grip the club with less tension while improving slip resistance, even in wet conditions. Third the glove’s woven copper-infused compression technology helps soothe joint and muscle pain while helping to relieve pain in arthritic hands.

“We use high-grade copper fabrics to infuse our products with the healing properties of copper,” said Lloyd Cohn, President of Pocketec, Inc. “Our patent-pending design gives the golfer a true custom fit with the power of compression for better blood circulation that helps soothe muscle and joint pain while reducing the recovery time from pain in your hands and improving performance while you play.”

Initial shipments of the Copper Tech glove sold out for the holiday season proving that copper compression technology is something golfers are in need of and hungry for. “We believed our copper-infused glove would benefit many golfers who suffer from hand strain, injuries and arthritic conditions,” Cohn said enthusiastically. “After more than 20 years in the golf business, the incredible demand for this product surprised even me.”

The Copper Tech glove is manufactured by Pocketec, Inc., makers of the Lady Classic glove. The company is exhibiting in Booth 3835 at the PGA Merchandise Show.
