    Default Advice on new gloves

    My current gloves served their purpose, 16oz standard bottom of the range Lonsdale gloves. Now things are getting more serious and my hands are getting more battered, it's time for me to invest in some new gloves.

    They will be mostly for bags, pads and sparring, so need to be multi purpose.

    It turns out that after working in an office for years, my hands are pretty weak and shit. They get hurt easy, especially now I'm punching correctly and harder, same for my wrist, it's fine now, but gets injured easily, so hand protection is my priority.

    These are currently top of my list, the 14oz versions, they are leather and seem to give decent protection. I've tried on the 16oz versions, but they were massive, just too big and heavy. I'm hoping the smaller ones will be a but easier to work with.

    Any advice on these, or suggestions on others?

    I would go to a store a try a few out, hard to order online, better try them yourself. everlast works perfect for me but i know other people who struggle with them, doesn't fit and very uncomfterble, its different to every person. so my tips is to go to a store and try a few out, just to get a feel for them.

    Yeah that's a good idea, the store did say I can get them delivered there and then try them on, the downside is that for each pair I want to try, I need to pay for them to get them delivered to the shop! The selection in the shop was only the bottom end cheap and nasty stuff.

    I've heard the slight bend in the wrist to glove part causes some issues, but I've also heard people say it helps them turn their shots in, so actually helped.

    Where is that then mate ? Not a lot of any sports shops to choose from down here anymore. Did you go to the white collar boxing charity event at the Guildhall on Saturday ?

    Well there is a world of new technology out there to give protection to your hands. But did you ever think about working on strength to your hands? Squeezing a tennis ball, slapping a leather bag filled with small rocks or sand daily, soaking your hands in salt brine or pickel juice, chopping wood, or using a shovel without gloves. A lot of these were techniques used over a hundred years ago to toughen the skin and give the hands strength. Now if the pain goes beyond the skin into the bone area, you might need a bone density test (depending on age and health). Some people have frail bones and are prone to injury in the hands more easily then others.

    back in the day fighters trained in gloves that were about 4 or 6 ounces. i don't know when or why fighters started training in big foam gloves. you can't make a fist and when you hit a bag with big foam gloves your punches are popping and bouncing off the bag. your punches are supposed to sink into the bag.

    Boxing gloves made of corduroy deliver the best punchlines

    Reyes 16 OZ trainers as a bare minimum if you're shopping for high end products. The other brands like Grant and Winning are more expensive, but on the same category as the Reyes gloves. Otherwise it doesn't really matter much as long as they are made out of real leather and have good wrist protection. I also like the Windy Thai brand lace-ups as well as a cheaper alternative.

    By the way does any one have any information here about Pro-Mex and JC Pachecho gloves?

    If you are looking for 16 Oz Gloves with really good padding then I would suggest Top Ten Superfight. The ones with the 2 velcro straps. Top Ten has a filling made from one piece of Bayfill padding that absorbs punches like no other material and stays in equal shape forever. They have been tested for up to 400k hits and the material still worked.

    I have a pair of the Ringside Sparring Gloves and by far one of the best pairs i owned for the price. They are lace up but you can make them work. Dont confuse them with the training gloves, those suck, get the sparring glove.

    The Everlast ones you shared i've owned and they ended up peeling on me about 6 months in of daily use.

    Other gloves I heard good things about are the RDX and the Venum

    Strengthen your wrists with paraphernalia and well bandage your hands
