    I'm debating whether to get the Fairtex gloves or not, because some people are bummed out about it being only 12oz. I'm about 5'7" and 140 lbs, and I'm currently using cheap 16oz Everlasts for bag/padwork. I want to get new gloves for bag/padwork, so should I get the Fairtex's even if they're lighter?

    Actually, with only a few exceptions, most "dedicated" super bag gloves are only available in 12 or 14oz. That is probably why Fairtex only offers their super bag gloves in 12oz.

    So wait, you're saying 12 oz is actually better for constant bag work?

    Let me preface this by saying, gloves are for the most part a matter of personal preference. However, a good rule of thumb or place to start is 12 to 14oz. super bag gloves for bag work, and 14, 16, or 18oz. sparring gloves for sparring. Traditional bag gloves are generally around 8oz. in weight and are sized by hand size, but for the purpose of this discussion, we can exclude those.

    The majority of super bag gloves are only available in 12 or 14oz. from the manufacturer. The Fairtex Super Bag Gloves are only available in 12oz. weight. Very few dedicated super bag gloves vary from the 12 to 14oz. weight range, although gloves like the Title Gel World Bag Gloves are 18oz. weight, which is "quite" the exception, however they seem to be well liked and used by more than a few people. People who prefer to use 16oz. gloves for bag work often use an all-purpose training glove in that weight.

    Personally, I like a dedicated super bag glove in 14oz. weight for bag work, but everyone is different. "Most" super bag gloves do come in either 12 or 14oz. weight only though. As far as "best", that lies in the eyes of the beholder. With the exception of going way off the weight scale on either end in glove weight, I think the quality of the glove and technique of the user is more important than any one particular ounce weight.

    That's a great deal on the Fairtex gloves, especially with free shipping.

    There was a pair in the "abandoned gloves" pile at my gym a couple of years ago. I was curious about Fairtex gloves, so I used them one day and was quite impressed. Even though they were old and unwanted, a little soft (but still far from being punched out) and kind of stinky, they felt great. And, most surprisingly, the velcro still held tightly.

    If you're in the market for new gloves (I unfortunately am not), you can't go wrong with these.

    Haha, thanks. I JUST purchased some KO Fightgear bag gloves. It'll be great to compare the two at the same time. Either or, I'll use the pair I like the least as a backup set for my home gym for any guests. And the Ringside IMF's are perfect for sparring.

    two sets of greats gloves for less than $80 total.

    The home gym is being built up, so no pics yet.

    I have 100 sq ft of mat and judo floor, and all the pads: torso, shin, gloves, thai, mitts, etc.

    I still need a bag. I'm slowly setting clearing out the garage and replacing it with more mats.

    Don't need a complete home gym to beat the shit out of eachother though. :D

    I wonder what the deal is with these gloves. This is the third time in two or three years now that I've seen them on sale for $35 from Ringside. Back when I bought my Fairtex safety gloves for 40 bucks they were at that price too. It's some sort or regular thing for them.
