I really like them for sparring. I used to use them for bag and pad work, but now that I've used some 12oz for that I could never go back to puffy 16oz gloves. The wrist support in my boons is awesome. I thought I'd be taking a step down in that area coming off my old Hayabusas, but the wrist support on the busas doesn't compare (even with the whole double strap thing). Blocking kicks in the Boons is a little bit nicer due to the long, wide cuff on them.
As for the consistency, it's definitely a bit off as others have said. Another guy at my gym has them in brown (mine are white) and the shape of the glove is quite a bit different in regards to the contour over the knuckles and thumb. I got mine off mmahq.com when they had them for like $55, he got his from title.
Overall they are probably my favorite gloves, though I've only owned a few. I can't really compare them to the Fairtex because I use them for two different things. The Boon definitely beats out crappy store bought Everlast, and the Hayabusas.
