Gripswell gloves - science or snake-oil?

Saw these (Gripswell GS-33) gloves at the Chicago International Motorcycle show last month. They're purported to eliminate that tingling feeling that can be caused from pressure on your carpal nerve (I think I have that right).

Anyway, I fell for it (since I get that tingling feeling quite frequently) with a special show price of $47, but due to the inclement weather up here, I haven't yet tried them out. When I bought them, I was not aware that these were originally designed to be shooting (pistol) gloves...nor did the salesman mention that to me, and as such, I'm suspicious. Anybody try these yet?...opinions?

Thanks,
Toolman

I wish I could think of clever things to say in my signature.

Looks like a pretty nice glove to me.
