    I have a pair of 14 oz as well, but in the tiger pattern. The 12 oz ones are the BGVL-3 in black. The leather feels different on the black ones and the wrist wraps differently on the 12 oz. I am wondering if these differences are usual between the 2 styles and sizes.

    I am not too worried as i know nd is trusted but still am wondering why it is like this.

    If you get a special pattern glove, they paint the pattern on and with makes the leather feel like plastic.

    Personally, with the Twins Special gloves that I have owned, I noticed that although it may not be fact, the leather on the fancy gloves seems to be a somewhat higher quality or of select skins, as opposed to my BGVL-3's, and if you are referring to the addition of the plastic Twins Special patch on the wrist wrap, that was an update by the Twins factory that started showing up around late 2009/2010.

    If you purchased them from ND, you can be sure the are absolutely authentic, and the latest issue. Great place to purchase from.

    The Fancy gloves are supposed to be BGVL-3 gloves, but I got a pair of white 16oz Twins which were supposed to be BGVL-3 too and they look totally different than my Dragon pattern Twins 160oz gloves:
