That would take balls!
That is money right there.
My gloves are still in customs!!!! Argh! Anyways here are the 18 oz JCs next to a pair of 16 oz Winnings
Oh the customs waiting game, I know it all too well. Can't to see the new gloves when they come in.
I would hate to see 18oz winnings.... :|
Mine have still been in customs for 2 weeks
At least they're not top kings. I remember when I got my box from Thailand, my emotions went from excitement to disappointment. It was my first 16oz glove and I started to assume all 16ozs were that big.
To anyone who has a pair of Zepols. Can you please measure the length of the cuff for me? I'm curious to see how long it is.
Top Kings are H.U.G.E. I bought a pair of 18oz and sold it without any use. I considered keeping them to decorate the wall of my living, but my wife was against my artistic inspiration and hey had to go. LOL
I can do it when I get home later tonight. I'll also take some comparison shots next to my JC Pacheco.
awesome! that will be great.
On another note, I might ship my next order with DHL or UPS even if it will cost more so it comes in faster.
Both cuffs measure about 4.5" from the bottom of the glove to the top of the cuff. Zepol has a nice soft leather, soft foam, satin liner, the only flaw I can think of is the gloves are a little top heavy. If you look at the last picture, you can see how thin the cuff foam is compared to the main foam.
Thank you so much that is money!
Hey Rsk, do uou think the Zepol have good wrist support even though they have less/softer foam in the cuff?
Glad I could help.
For me the thin cuffs don't play much of a factor because of where they placed, which is right below my wrist. The cuffs basically just cover my forearm, so I get the benefit of the thicker foam over my wrist. Hope that makes sense to you.
For my personal preference, they could use longer padding on the underside. If you notice in the third and forth pics, on the palm side of the glove, the Pacheco has longer padding than the Zepol. Where the padding ends on the Zepol, that is where my wrist flexes.
I wonder if they could extend that on request? Hopefully without doing what happened to clamp.
I see what you're saying the palm side padding is shorter and looks like it doesn't come as high on the palm like the JCs.
Which one of the features I love about my JCs; if the foam was softer they would be perfect.
I can't see it being too hard to extend the padding. From what I can tell they just have to make the stitching a little higher and insert a longer piece of foam. Juan did say they wanted feedback to improve their gloves.
I was going to say if they could merge the two best quality of these gloves, they would have one awesome glove. Then I realized I already own that glove, a Fairtex BGL7. Once broken in, it's padding is not as soft as the Zepol but nowhere near as hard as the Pacheco. The wrist protection is step below the Pacheco but a level above the Zepol. The only issue I have with the BGL7 is the comfort, Pacheco and Zepol both surpass Fairtex in that department.
Agree. It's a shame they didn't make the glove Clamp asked for, now anyone thinking about asking for a softer foam Pacheco glove will be left wondering if they'll get what they asked for. I love the JC's for bag work but, I would love a Pacheco glove with a softer foam.
