+1 on the argos for comfort and durability. I have a spare pair I've been dragging around for years because my first pair are still doing fine after coating the bottoms with AquaSeal (same idea as your plumbers goop)
When it comes to gloves for bugging the only pair I'll wear is the Akona All Armor Tex. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004P ... UTF8&psc=1
They have no insulation so get cold but there is nothing I've tried better for grabbing bugs. I tried the insulated version and it just wasn't the same. I took a break from them for half a season and tried some others and missed a lot of grabs. Went back to them and the velcro grip action was back.
