    I'm planning to get another pair of MMA gloves in the next month or so. I plan to use them for padwork, clinching and light sparring. Right now, here are my choices

    +1 for the Cageside training gloves. They are approx 7oz and have a lot of padding, enough for light sparring for sure, and are very affordably priced compared to most other brands. I love em.

    Curiously, what benefits/ differences would the cageside gloves offer that the Truth and combat sports versions can't

    I've never used Truth or CSIs versions, so I can't compare, but I have great confidence in the Cageside gloves.

    After checking out Truth's site, their gloves look quite similar to Cageside's with some minor modifications, so I guess you could go with them too for a similar style shooto glove.

    Bear in mind that Cageside has a discount code for G&E users, so the price ends up being very comparable to the Truths.

    I already have the truth and CSI gloves... I'm looking more towards the "UFC type" gloves, but looking for something with a little more padding.

    Crossdx, what's the discount code?

    7% discount code for May: MayGE

    Boomer's a really great guy, if you've never ordered from CagesideMMA before, give it a go. Btw, for international shoppers like us, contact him via email to place your order. The cart system is only for North American orders, I think. I've ordered from there thrice, and his customer service is hands down the best.

    I've got the SSF primetimes. Did a review a while back and still dig them. I also have the CSIs and prefer the SSF to them. THey just have a better feel. Hard to explain. Better leather, better padding, easier on training partner still solid for me.

    I also own the SSF shootos that were mentioned, I still use them some but spend most of my time in the SSSF primetimes. Don't think you can go wrong with anything bearing a SSF logo.

    Hmm... of those posted above, the IMF look the most interesting as I've heard good things about the IMF Tech boxing gloves. They are all quite a bit pricier than the Cagesides and Truths though.

    Yeah...oops, forgot to take price into consideration. But if you look at the CSI gloves the OP showed and the ones I suggested, mine were better for what he was planning on doing.
