    I'd recommend Hayabusa's 16oz sparring gloves. They are quite amazing.
     
  3. The Title World Gel are a BIG step up from Protex2.
    You wouldn't be sorry.

    The Hayabusa gloves aren't that great for sparring, the padding is pretty dense.

    The Ringside IMF Tech are excellent sparring gloves and you can use them for the bag also. They cost around 100 bucks. Or if you're gonna do Kick Boxing you could just take one of those Muay Thai style gloves. Fairtex, Twins, King. They range from 50 (Twins) up to 90 (Fairtex) bucks.

    I got Boon gloves from muaythaifighting.com. I've been using them for about 6 months and they're very properly worn in and I feel like they will last a long time.

    They're the same quality as Twins or Top King (after trying my friend's Top Kings I'd say they are even better) only a bit cheaper. With shipping the cost was like 60 dollars.

    but only at muaythaifighting, every other place has them at a much steeper price.

    He can still buy the miscolored SE version for 40 bucks. They're some sort of synthetic leather but nobody has had anything negative to say about that yet.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. What do you guys think of Windys? Would you take those over twins?

    I would not recommend the hayabusas. I've had mine for a month, training 3-4 days a week...there are loose threads everywhere and the leather is already cracking up. I'll be amazed if I can get 6 months out of them.

    If you get twins, go for 14 oz, 16 oz ones are huge!
    My 14s are still significantly larger than my 16oz hayabusas.
