    What are the best gloves for work on a heavy bag? I've been told that you can use the smaller MMA gloves, but you must tape your hands to avoid wrist and knuckle injury. Or do you guys find it better to use the 16 oz gloves?

    I rotate between 14-16 oz gloves, bag gloves, and MMA gloves. I change gloves depending on how hard, what types of punches and how fatigued I am.

    Its a personal opinion. I like 14oz boxing bag gloves. Title platinum, or gel world bag gloves.

    For bag and pad work I use 12oz. I don't see the reason for going with 16oz. I use 16oz to sparr only.

    I use the 10oz Hayabusa bag gloves to bag and pad work. Love them.

    Haven't tried the hayabusa bag gloves but I really like their MMA gloves.

    I prefer 12oz for heavy bag & pad work. My all time favorites have to be Fairtex. The padding, leather, stitch work, wrist support and hook & loop are the best I've ever tried. Spend the money and you'll be satisfied.

    You should be wrapping your hands regardless of what type of gloves your using to avoid injury.

    And btw, Ringside is having a huge blowout sale with some awesome deals right now. If I weren't saving for another trip to Thailand I'd definitely be getting a new pair of Fairtex gloves. Those prices are better than what I saw at the factory in Bangplee!
