    well in my gym depending on what mood the coach is in we have days where you just go in and hit the heavy bag until you wait to get called on the pads, after the pads you either go back to the heavy bag or get called to spar and then at the end you do ground work, so in them kind of training sessions I could get my hybrids tied up (for the benefits of lace up) as they will only be coming off either once on non sparring days which I would take off before we do ground work or twice on sparring days I would change from the hybrids over to my sparring gloves and then from my sparring gloves to no gloves for the ground work.. then there are days which I call (boxercize) types of classes where its less about technique and more about fitness and your body being worked until your practically stumbling out the door at the end of the session, these types of sessions I would not bother with lace up as the gloves are constantly coming off you go from hitting the bag to medicine ball throws, from medicine ball throws to squats, to shadow boxing with weights in your hands then back to hitting the heavy bag then to something else, your constantly switching excercizes so tieing my laces on these sessions would be a massive inconvenience.

    so that is why the hybrids appealed to me because of the type of training I will be doing, however I can definitely see what you mean how it would be awkward to tie up around the hybrid wrist, I have not ever seen a reyes glove in person before but on the hybrids you can see from pictures how the Velcro strap takes up the whole length of the cuff, with the normal lace up there is the triple cuff which you can obviously rest the laces on one of the grooves, so I think like others on this thread have said, if any future members or guests ever get stuck on making this decision and do the same kind of training as me the best bet for you to do would be to get the lace ups and get a hook and loop converter if you can put up with ugliness lol.

    This post actually made me lean towards Hybrids rather than the Standard Training gloves haha

    Funny I thought the same and went with the standard Velcro training gloves.
    Guess that’s what makes for horse racing lol

    This will be valuable for future buyers :

    14 OZ Velcro training Cleto gloves weight about 19 oz ( weighed mine with an electronic food scale )

    12 Oz Velcro’s training Cleto gloves weight an exact 16 Oz , same method used

    Something to consider ...

    Just as a little extra : Hayabusa gloves do match the exact weight
    Windy match exact weight
    Top King were 12oz the 16oz ha ha (cheaters)
    Twins special match exact weight

    My Cleto's have usually be only .5 of a gram out.
    Topboxer has always been very close to the weight
    Fairtex have usually been spot on
    RDX was 10oz I bought for my girlfirend and they ended up weighing 17oz hahaha

    That does not apply to all cleto reyes gloves, some are overweight some aren't, some are massively overweight and some just a little bit over, if you ring the shop your purchasing from the people are usually friendly enough to go and weigh a load of gloves for you.. lets say you share your concern that your looking for 16oz in a particular brand but the brand you like are notorious for coming in heavy, they should go and weigh a load of 16oz to find a pair for you which is more closer to its labeled weight, a lot of shops in the uk have done this for me (sugar reyes, fight outlet etc) and i know that title and ringside (usa) are just as friendly, although i have not asked them to weigh gloves, they have however been very helpful in other situations but they are better to speak to on live chat or if you ring them as sometimes they don't reply to emails.

    There are a lot of fakes sold over ebay and amazon. That might be a reason why weight is not the same in all cases.
    Some producers also look at other metrics other than the glove's weight. I.e. the size and energy absorbtion factors. After all no 24 Inch monitor is exactly 24 inches wide. It's just a definition of a monitor with certain characteristics.

    My 14oz cletos that weigh over 1lb were bought in the main Cleto store / factory in Mexico City . The 12oz cletos that weigh 14oz come from the Cleto Reyes USA store in San Diego CA . That is their main USA warehouse and store . I don’t mind the overweight , the quality of both is excellent so really makes no difference . I’m sure their fight gloves which come in 8 or 10oz are exact in weigh . With the weak peso against dollar at the moment your able to score a pair at the Mexico store for about $85 US dollars
