    thanks bro, digging it


    Black and Silver isn't a bad combo at all for a speed bag, might do that

    I have been using my 10oz zepol for pad work with le roy wraps and have never had a problem with sore knucles. althow i highly doubt i could fit any sort of pad in my gloves and i think i have average size hands for a 6' 230. I typically dont use them for the heavy bag because i have 12oz velcro pachecos for that, but i did initialy break them in on a heaby bag. throwing hooks and power punches i could feel when i made good contact on the bag it gave me a very solid responce. I could feel the pading and knew my hands were protected but i was a lot more aware of how my hands were making contact on the bag vs the pachecos that have a much firmer fome.

    I bougt these gloves for use on pads and in defencive drills when i want to get used to the much smaller size of figt gloves vs my 16 and 18 sparing gloves. I love the way the feel. they are nise and snug without squeesing my hands. and the thumb is in one of the most confortable positions i have on any of my gloves. I like how they seem to respond with feedback. what I mean by that is if I mis hit a pad or make contact at an odd angle I can feel it right away. and when i hit the pad correct i feel the nice solid contact.

    You need to blow up the image and use a smaller brush size, and do the same when using the eraser to fix your mistakes.

    What I might do is get 10oz zeps...and then get the 44 dollar R2C sparring gloves for heavy bag since on the heavy bag i guess i can let my technique slide a bit and focus on just hitting it hard. whereas pads and double end i can use precision who knows...but considering how much i swap in between bags...might piss off my coach to keep relacing for me.

    edit* @ rsk yeah you're right...i guess i could have/should have done a better job.

    if you dont have any hand probles then you shoud be fine with 10oz for both. If you look at zepols and reyes guanteletas they will usualy have less padding than their 10oz

    Geez...guanteletas....man what are you studying right now? :eek:

    I'm exactly sure what you meant in that statement but honestly yeah I'd be going for training gloves and not the fight gloves obviously! Also congratz in advance on the orange belt that you'll get in the next 2 posts that I'll probably miss before congratulating you on time.

    @Strato Ikr...he praises everything from them so highly that after a while I start feeling the need for a second opinion :p

    i just ment that in my opinion 10oz gloves should give you enogh procection for both padwork and heavy bag. then again i have been know to go hard on the heavy bag with nothing but handwraps.

    how big are you just for a size comparison...i'm like 5'7 and 135 pounds with skinny yet very large hands so...maybe if you're really big with meaty hands its a bit different. And rock the orange belt with pride!

    It's all good, mixedmajik. You get an A for effort.

    Here is another red silver option for you USMC. It's not a true red, but as bright as I could get it.

    that colour scheme is nice, and the red colour looks great -- hopefully they could match it

    Regarding clamp and r2c majik, i mean hes done a ton of reviews on them... They are in the price range u want too. Seems like ur best bet at this point.

    thanks rsk

    those do look hot

    is there anyway that you can make the cuff silver? So I could see how those would look?


    although I really am digging these, might have to go with them

    Not perfect, but you can get a general idea how it would look.
