    Definately, the IMF padding is awesome.

    The only downside to using training/sparring gloves on the bag is that they will wear out quicker than if you use them solely for sparring.

    They will provide excellent hand and wrist protection.

    Trading off some durability in exchange for safety sounds like a good deal.

    I'm just starting out so I know my form isn't perfect, so the added support will hopefully help prevent injuries until I improve.

    Thanks a lot for replying - Much appreciated!

    No problem, glad to help.

    Even though I said they will wear out quicker with heavy bag work I'd be surprised if you didn't get at least a year or more of solid every day use out of them before you noticed any wear and tear at all.

    You should post some pics if you get them!
