I have never owned a Friskmaster Glove but this is the Resistor Glove. My law enforcement career includes state corrections, state police, and federal law enforcement. My resume includes emergency medical technician, search and rescue, firefighter, plus over four years as an embedded police trainer and advisor in Afghanistan. These are excellent general duty gloves which work exceptionally well for hand to hand fighting, combat tactical shooting, & even writing. The tactile feel is like a second skin. my 10 and a half inch spread from pinky finger to thumb tip is perfect for a size 2XL. I highly recommend these Resistor Gloves.
