    Seriously has to negotiate for a discount though...or partial refund if hes already paid because no way should he say yes to a "new" producy arriving with marks on it you know? I love juan too though...its not his fault but people are still entitled to their new stuff being as expected if customized...its only fair to lessen the cost here.

    Yea, you're right. It's the same with everything haha, especially with something I'm going to use so often, after awhile you just don't care anymore. I opted for a different colour scheme though, inspired by Juan's very own pair of Zepols.

    Fist: Black
    Cuff: metallic yellow
    Thumb-fist connector: metallic yellow
    top thumb: metallic yellow
    bottom thumb: black
    inner thumb: metallic yellow
    thread in between thumb and palm: Black
    inner palm: black
    outer palm: metallic yellow

    Juan actually did offer my a $20 refund and 2 free repaints if they are needed. I wouldn't have used the repaints anyways though, since I would have to take the time and money to ship them out to him.

    At first I thought, "what? only $20?!" but after some more thought it is actually a very fair offer considering he has to take time and effort repairing the gloves.

    Maybe this is a good thing though :icon_chee I have enough pairs of yellow gloves as it is

    Hey Strato

    All depends in what you look for and your personal taste, my choices are
    Zepol
    Boxeo

    Zepol for sparring(very comfortable and free of movement)
    Boxeo Sparring and bag work (Comfortable, good wrist support)

    You can ask many guys here some of them prefer Zepol others Boxeo


    Saludos

    I painted my own cup gold, it's held up well. But then again it's only a cup. I don't know how it'll preform on a glove.

    well headgear not a glove, but I sometimes forget to move my head, lol. What kind of paint did you use though?


    Way down the road anyways, but when I add a facebar to my collection, I would like to get it to match my Zepol gloves and cup. Juan recommends the Reyes facebar (I don't want to shell out the cash for Winning, and Reyes seems to be consensus #2) and Reyes doesn't do customs (well only for 15+) so Juan offered to get mine painted. Just curious on the durability

    Haha, yeah I wish my Boxeo's were 16 instead of 18 oz (don't need 18's anymore). The padding is soft and spongy just like Winning and the wrist strap gives a good fit that isn't tight. The wrist area has big soft foam padding and you can move your wrists to clinch easily.
