    Hi all, just made an account here and thought it would be a good place to ask.
    What are some reasonably priced 16oz gloves and shinguards?

    I need worldwide shipping as im not from the US.
    Currently considering:
    http://www.mmajoes.com/Venum-Challenger-Standup-Shinguards_p_7552.html
    http://www.mmajoes.com/Venum-Challenger-Boxing-Gloves-20_p_7551.html

    As they are the best price I have found so far, with what looks to be reasonable quality.

    I train Muay Thai though, not mma. These will still be fine right? The shin guards look practically identical to thai guards, will both be used for sparring.

    I do like the Thai brands though, so If needed to spend a little more some decent priced links to Twins/Windy/Fairtex would be appreciated

    I don't know what MMA Joes worldwide shipping is....but I do know a lot of overseas people here like Forza Sports shipping charges. Check them out:

    They now carry Fairtex.

    As far as the Venum's go...yes they can be used for Muay Thai. I have the Challenger 2.0 gloves and love them but no experience with the shins. But even though the price is cheap on MMA Joes...international shipping could kill you. I say go Forza.

    You may want to state where you live just in case someone here has experience shipping there.

    If you are doing muay thai and just want best bang for the buck, get KO Fightgear sparring gloves, which are good for everything FOR NOW, and get a pair of Top King sninguards.

    You can either get the last pair of shinguards you will ever need for MT right now, from KSTAR gear since they are doing a liquidation, or you can keep buying shinguards until you get TK eventually lol.

    Hope I helped!
