    I've never owned Everlast gloves, but I'd always assumed they were pretty good because they're been around forever!

    I'm going to get flamed to hell for this but Fairtex are by far the best gloves to ever grace my hands.

    Century and Ares, just, just stay away man.

    Everlast and Century are the only ones i've heard of in my life... until now. I would assume that they are the best out there. Why are they hated on?

    I'll sum this up from my experience:
    Top Contender (yeah, you heard that right) > Everlast. Seriously.

    I have a pair of Twins and a pair of Ringside Tech gloves that I really like. My least favorite was Top Contender, but that could be because the pair I used was pretty smelly, old, and worn out by years of use.

    I think I also used some Cleto Reyes gloves, which were ok.

    Rival are the best that I have owned with respect to comfort, fit, protection, and durability.

    Everlast have not "ever lasted" for me.

    i think the worst glove i used was thaismai. the foam was very soft and squishy but i used it for a long ass time....
    i ended up damaging my wrist.
    i like twins but then a lot of twins you get are bootlegs unless u really get it with the tags.
    imo most twins windy kings gloves are all the same with a different print on it
