*Plz don't merge this thread for a while* What types of sparring gloves has everyone tryed (meaning mma gloves advertised for sparring). I bought 2 pairs of the CSI gloves that claimed to have equivalent padding to a 16oz glove. The padding was around the same thickness (as a 16oz gloves) but it was way to dense and the gloves seemed to have a plastic backing behind the knuckles. The construction was rugged but the weight of the glove combined with the hard padding and plastic plate made getting hit with the glove full force, equal or maybe even worse then getting hit with a quano glove. I wound up returning them after using them once. Who's tryed the Hawks, Rogue or any of the other brands?
