what is everyone using when theyre hittin the bag
Everlast pro-style 16oz for me. They're as big a my head and are making my arms decently shredded.
At home - i just use my Ouano Shooto Gloves (ouano.com), and at the gym I don't do alot of bag work, but it differs between using my MMA gloves (shooto ofcourse) and bag mitts. I'd have to say if you don't want fucked up hands and nerve damage use some decent padded gloves, like real bag gloves, all the nerve endings in my hands are buggered from years of hitting walls/people/whatever. I will be getting Fairtex gloves for bag work, when I can spare some $ http://www.fairtexgear.com/html_documents/gear/gear_item.asp?p_id=100 - are the ones I'm loooking at.
I actually love my Pride Ouano Gloves I got from PrideFC.com. Lil expensive for the average consumer, but not bad. Good quality, but I don't see how fighters don't break more fingers and the finger support is a lil weak and if you dont hit on the knuckles, you could easily break a finger. But good for working out those arms and stylish. Laces can be a big much when trying to tie them yourself.
Forgot to put that make sure you get gloves a size up because it is a must you tape your hands when really working a bag because it will fuck up your wrists! If you are love tapping just to do combos and get some cardio, don't worry, but if you are going all out get sport tape!
does anyone have a preferance in handwraps, i bought some from kofightgear.com and theyre pretty nice, but i was thinking about buying some elastic ones.
Buy sport tape, like 2.50 a roll and protects better than hand wraps and fights great under MMA gloves.
What are you laughing at sucka?
Don't knock my big-ass boxing gloves!
Pro Training Gloves, Mexican-Style 14Oz
Pro Training Gloves, Mexican-Style w/ Laces 12Oz
Info about the gloves: High density, compressed training gloves for heavy pounding on bags, pads, and focus mitts.
Windy bag gloves, compression hand wraps (no name brand), and gel knuckle guards when I need to hit the bag harder.
whats the different between those and these
I use Harbinger MMA gloves.
The way i see it, Mexican Style gloves are the best ever made.
GRANT 12Oz 125$
So why buy it for 125$
When u can "almsot" get the same for 84$ Pro Training Gloves, Mexican-Style
I almost dare say they are the same!
The one you showd me is a "OK "glove, the mexican style glove is a GREAT glove. That`s the big difference.
hehe for sure mate!
but im asking whats the difference like, what does the mexican glove have that the other one dont.
I use the Ringside Super bag gloves -I have had them for years and they are still in great condition after average use. I use MMA gloves only on the light bags as I have hurt my knuckles a number of times.
I think the main difference is the Mexican ones are high density so they will stand up to heavy bag use for a longer period of time (that's why it says they're not recommended for sparring, I think, because the glove isn't softened or conditioned on the outside at all).
Other than that, I guess just read the descriptions. The Mexican style one has latex in the core, not just foam, and the sleeve is triple-ribbed for extra wrist protection. The Pro Training ones have a triple layered core with the foam, but the regular Training ones you linked only have a single layer, and that's without the latex.
Also, the hand is contoured in the Mexican style gloves; it's oversized in the Pro Training Style ones and neither in the regular Training pair.
pretty damn good explanation!
doubble stiches and in general made by goatskin.
