    Looks like I should thank both you and Juan then. Juan shipped them out today. I haven't been this excited for gear in years.

    Save all the thanks for Juan, he deserves it.

    Congrats on the gloves. I'm sure you'll love even more once you have them in your hands.

    I can't say enough good things about Juan. He's such an asset to this sub-forum. With that said, so many of you guys add so much knowledge to the conversation and its greatly appreciated. I've been visiting Sherdog a lot more now than I have in years (and I've been here for a decade now), and it's really due to how great G&E is. You guys are awesome.

    I feel it kind of hard to Parry/catch shots in Mexican style gloves. although it could be because I got the velcro version.

    btw, I'm talking about the reyes. Do you guys find it easy to parry and catch punches in these gloves?

    Ok some more observations: Campeon is thick and hard to bend the wrists, but with Boxeo you can bend the wrist with no problems if you want to clinch.

    For those of you who got Zepols, do you think that 14oz would be enough protection for your sparring partners? I'm looking for a more compact glove but also want to protect my sparring partners. I'm about 140lbs.

    Thanks in advance.

    Wow...we live really closeby and you're like reading my mind haha...except i'm more interested in 10oz zepols and protection to train with...maybe will use knuckleguard inserts as Denno recommended to me to make up if its not protective...i just don't know...the brand is so mysterious and foreign to me still...i hear great things...

    However...in a review i saw the guy said zepol was crap basically with single stitching and such...see here...so now idk wtf to believe

    I hear you about mixed reviews, destroyer4147 a couple pages back said the Zepol's are very dense and he wears them for sparring because his training partners wear cheap gloves

    But then a bunch of other people say that they are soft and great for sparring.

    With regards to your video though, I think Juan said that those are cheaper Zepols made by the owner's son.

    Ok thanks...I think if i'm going to try a mexican glove it may be jc pacheco (if they got their act together) or zepol which i'm leaning towards...if i knew how long a zepol would last and the protection in 10oz i wouldn't even have thought twice by now >.> however the idea of winning knuckle guards if the protection isn't perfect is a good thought still...we'll stay in contact tech, and yeah chambers if you find anything out keep me posted, i'm not too far away from you haha

    The zepols are not hard at all. Springy padding but still protective. I need to go back to my grandfathers gym and visit destroyer. He trains there. I want to check out his zepols because mine are soft and bouncy.

    What size are yours? Let us know if you get more info for sure as usual man :)

    Also by hard padding is this a compliment? Because from what i've gathered is soft padding means you feel your knuckles too much and this is bad no? So if zepol isnt hard doesnt that mean its not good? I'm not familiar with this terminology.

    Thanks Clamp, whenever you get the chance it would be much appreciated :)

    I believe he means soft in a sense that means it is good for sparring and protective for both your knuckles and your sparring partner. Clamp, let me know if I'm mistaken.

    Oh ok so you would want hard for the bag and soft for sparring so basically for bag work and such a light oz zepol like 10 would be bad because its soft...? Interesting...
