    Looking for new headgear after a few black eyes sparring at the new boxing club.
    Tossing up between topking, fairtex hg10 fairtex hg13 or UMA r9
    I will be using it for Muay Thai as well. I’m most concerned about vision and how bulky it feels.
    Any advice is appreciated
    I’ve owned a topking headguard before but would prefer something slimmer with better vision

    I used a Hayabusa for ages. Like one of their first models. Never had a issue with them. I very rarely spar these days though so it might've moved on since then

    I am using the R9 and love it. Super light, but really protective.

    Hows the vision? That was my main issue with the topking headgear

    I find the vision to be really good.

    My general rule has been Fairtex make great gloves and garbage headgear.
