    I heard the BGV5 and BGV6 aren't that great so I'm looking for an alternative choice. Only interested in velcro models as I need to take my gloves on and off quickly during training.

    I am mainly interested in Fairtex gloves due to their smaller profile and because Fairtex (and other Thai brands) are generally better constructed than other brands.

    Thanks!

    EDIT: I am going to be using these gloves for MT and boxing.

    The F-Day gloves have a nice padding for sparring imo. They are made of syntec leather which can turn people off.

    I own a pair of BGV6 and have a review up of them in the review section. I can recommend them but I'm sure there are better out there. Are you doing Thai or boxing? because there are vast differences between the gloves that should be used in them.
    If you're doing Thai you can easily just get some Twins or some Fairtex BGV1's. If you're doing boxing I'd recommend the BGV6 but they're not on par with the BGV9 which are unsuitable for sparring.

    Edit: Didn't see your edit. You're probably best off just getting some Twins gloves as they'll be suitable for both. While Fairtex BGV1's are good they don't usually get the same props from Thai fighters as the Twins brand do.

    I have a pair of BGV11 F Days, and I really like them. They are my first non-leather glove, and I am really surprised by the quality. I would never have given them a chance, but I saw them in real life in the store and the fit and quality is better than my Sabas SS 2.0's, which is saying a lot. With an injured middle knuckle, these are the only gloves that don't hurt my hands even when just wearing them, and they have a good balance between protection and softness that lends itself well to bag, pads or sparring. Great all around glove IMO. The syntek leather is very high quality and seems very durable, it looks almost like a matte finish real leather, and mine still look like new after many rounds and I don't find my hands sweating any more than in leather gloves. I would buy them again, actually am considering another pair, but am torn between them and the BGV9 that I've heard great things about.

    I am struggling to decide on some boxing sparing gloves. I am thinking either the Faritex BGV6 or UMA RT41 they are basically the same price has anyone tried both or have a strong opinion on whats best?

    Too thin? Most muay thai gloves are thicker than your average boxing glove, Most Twins gloves are big and soft padded unless they're fight gloves. The other issue with your statement is stiff padding would make them hard to open your palm up to catch kicks and clinch. Muay Thai gloves generally have softer padding to allow for more hand movement.

    Fairtex BGV6 are my gloves for sparring and I really like them. They have a long cuff and more of a boxing profile, but I've used them without issue for Muay Thai. I really dig their profile. I don't think they get enough love.
