    fairtex top king and twins seem to the the top choices for thai gear

    peopel claim the fairtex mma gloves are basically the best you can get from mainstream brands

    but what about top king and twins gloves? they seems pretty legit from the pics they arnt very popular hard to fidn them in usa stores they have a shooto type design which i like how much padding the twins have from pics

    im curious how they stack up heres the top king

    if the top king are like the fairtex they will have 1.5" of pretty soft padding i might of played with the twins style a few years back but i can't remember what i liked or disliked about them any more

    No he never actually buys anything. He's been telling topboxer he'll buy gloves soon for ages but is still "designing them". Last thing he admitted to buying was Badboy shin guards, the choice of professionals.

    I think he mentioned to me in another thread that he bought a pair of black Fighting Road gloves because they sold out of the blue ones.

    49 clams seems reasonable.

    i like how the thumb is open you can gable grip alot better compared to other gloves which is a huge plus

    i feel most gloves are designed for the striker in mind s gripping is quite hard with certain gloves on single legs

    I train at the most successful Muay Thai and boxing gym in Australia you idiot, I've told you to contact me and organize a pro fight with any of the fighters from my gym, but you're always too cowardly to do it.
    Did your girlfriend give you your allowance for them? lol

    I'm old. I remember when MMA sparring was exclusively 16 oz boxing gloves. Singles were not as hard as securing or getting out of chokes.

    i never spar with even mma training gloves ill go about 60% with them to get timing down with the smaller gloves and defense

    but yeah rnc's can be a bitch depending on glove type but luckly with strikes u can open up chokes more than a guy whos turtling and playing complete defense

    idk if its just by chance or what but i noticed alot more single legs in pride vs ufc guys never really shoot for head inside singles hardly in ufc but pride all the time i think the open palm really helps with control
