    It's well known that almost all Mexican training gloves, including Reyes, come in a bit heavy.

    I had a pair of 12oz velcro Reyes that weighed 17.3~ ounces each!

    Had a 16oz velcro Reyes that weighed 19.2~ oz each, and a 14oz laceup Reyes that weighed 15.4oz~ (not bad).

    It seems that the velcro strap itself might be causing excessive weight compared to the laceups.

    To those with Reyes trainers, care to state what OZ they are, and the true weight?

    Are you buying actual Reyes gloves? Cause I've owned 16oz velcros and they weighed 15.8oz and I've owned 12oz that weighed 12.3oz... I think you got ripped off my bro

    I own a pair of 16oz lace ups and owned a pair of 12oz velcros. I don't have a scale for measuring the gloves but the 16s feel much lighter than the 12s did imo. It might just be the balance point, but I feel snappier and smoother working with the heavier lace ups than I ever did using the velcros.

    Compared to the myriad other budget gloves I've owned/used (Title Platinum 14 and 16oz, Everlast Pro Style 16oz, Ringside Apex 14oz, Title Infusion 14oz, Everlast Powerlock 18oz, Everlast C3 lace up 12oz, Everlast Protex 2 16oz, etc etc) the Reyes 16oz lace ups are a whole other world in terms of balance/weight/impact.
