    Or should I say mitt. I still have to make the other one. :icon_cry2

    I'm no Sergio Garibay, but not bad for my first attempt. I still gotta lace them up and tidy a few things. They are based off the Cageside precision mitts.

    Almost there Tone! Your project is next Nahveed!

    Sooo shiny! You're gonna blind whoever is hitting mits with the right lighting angle.

    But they look awesome.

    I foresee the pad holder getting punched in the face a few times from blinding himself with the bling; looks good man.

    Thanks guys!

    The foam is from the original Cageside mitts. It's a 2 " multi layered foam.

    It's not super shiny in person, probably more to do with the lighting in my dining room.

    Tone requested no target on the front, so I left it blank. I gotta iron out that big ass wrinkle in the front. Yes, you can iron leather.

    rskbreaker is the next Elvis Grant. I want my name embroidered in five different places on a pair of neon green gloves with welted seams and quadruple split thumbs and I know now that one day you'll be up for it

    These look great, one helluva first effort. They look light yet protective- the key combo. Strong, neat stitching too. Big props on these and I'm sure I speak for all when I say we're looking forward to seeing your product line continue to gather momentum.

    I'm no expert on leather or stitching, but they look very nice. Can't wait to see how well the final product holds up.

    BTW, did you scrap the PRIDE-style gloves project?

    thanks guys.

    I didn't scrap the Shooto gloves, just put them on the shelf. :redface:

    I think I have some sort of equipment making ADD. I have so many half assed projects, it's not even funny. :icon_chee
