    New gloves! BGV14 16 oz.
    Here are my initial impressions:
    Feel very light, weighed in at 14.2oz (R), 14.1 (L); BGV1s weighed in at ~17oz
    Curved thumb feels better than BGV1, but could use slight more curve
    Syntax leather feels thin at some areas, pad of thumb and lower palm
    Wrist closure likes to stay flat, vs rounded and contoured to the wrist
    Hand compartment is tighter than BGV1s
    Finger length feels similar to BGV1
    Wrist and palm padding is soft, almost feels non existent
    Despite the long cuff it feels like it won't be a problem clinching
    Its nice to have a grip bar again
    Craftsmanship is top notch, no loose threading found on initial inspection
    Feel more compact than BGV1
    Padding feels good, rigid and holds shape, yet not so hard it would hurt when hit.

    Thanks. It's been a while since I've taken a picture of my gear so a fair amount of it has changed.

    Need to pick myself up some focus mitts, Winning padded ones are nice, however looking for something sleeker.

    In the bible of boxing gloves, the first chapter is called "There's Winning... and then there's everything else".

    Those are beautiful, but why so many? Do you just like to change up colors and size/style?

    Probably because he's able to afford them, and wanted them. No need to question why someone owns a lot of gear. Most of us are gear heads here.

    Yes. Also, I keep a spare 18oz Winning (for heavyweights) and spare 16oz Winning just for my sparring partners to use against me. Of course I will not force them to use it, but I always offer first. I only use Winning gloves myself for sparring.


    I value safety as much as possible when it comes to the world of combat sports; especially experienced heavier boxers.

    Those fuckers hit hard like a mother fucker!

    I also plan on having multiple sizes of spare Winning headgears in the future.
