    Yep...I tried the RS2v and the RS1 and the lace ups are a lot better in terms of support. Quality is the same. I guess the same applies to the RS11. You can only take velcro so far, really and that is double closure (Hayabusa, Ring-to-Cage safety strap, Victory Equipment, etc)

    yeh I mean Fairtex BGV9 or Lemarr MKIIs have better wrist support than the RS11, which is a great glove, just wrist support is average for a velcro closure glove. I only mention it because that's meant to be one of the selling points for Rival gloves but really it's a non-factor.
     
  6. If choose RS1, will I be able lace up not much and then simply push a hand every time? Normally will hold the brush?
