    Finally used my JCs for sparring today, they are so light and fit so well, they were awesome; they are the perfect width, I had no problem landing my jab.

    So how much softer did the padding become?

    Well, when I push in with a finger in the knuckle area it takes a second or so for it to come back out, as opossed to to the back of the hand it is instant. It will only get better because they aren't 100% broken in yet.

    Just received my black JC Pacheco from Technoir. Actually i got them a while ago but didnt have the chance to try them out until now. Had a focus mitt session today, here are my thoughts on the gloves:

    1. They look awesome, leather is very nice, craftsmanship is also very good. Not as good as my Cleto Reyes but not by a huge margin.

    2. Wrist support is great, but of course they are lace up gloves so they should provide decent wrist support

    3. Thumb positioning is just perfect for me. For some reasons, my Cleto's thumb positioning is a bit uncomfortable for me. I can still use them but its just a bit weird.

    4. Padding is superb. I dont feel its that stiff at all, maybe just a tadbit stiff. They do make a loud pop when they hit the focus mitts though. I havent used them for sparring and since they are 10oz gloves, i dont think i would be using them for sparring at all.

    5. What i love the most about the gloves: The narrow shape and smaller size of the hand compartment. The gloves really look small and compact and perfect for the focus mitt.

    All in all, i really like the gloves. Havent found any negatives about the gloves at all.

    The lack of detailed reviews and pictures to emerge out of this thread is soul crushing :(

    It is to build suspense; that and my JCs are so awesome and such an obscure brand I don't want everyone and their brother to start using them. I am selfish like that. :p

    There was no mention of grey in the colour options... What's up with that, Juan? New colours available?
