    So it's time for a pair of new MMA fight gloves.
    Now I just wanted to know which gloves you would recommend and why?
    PunchTown KARPAL eX TAT2 or Hayabusa Pro MMA Gloves?

    Both gloves are so sexy. The hayabusa's just look badass, but the PunchTown's look hardcore.

    I just wrote a review on Aries Pro MMA gloves with IMF technology. I love them for the padding and the T-bar. Hayabusa offers a smiliar y-bar, but I've heard their padding is more on the dense side.

    Thanks!


    I really tend to the PunchTown KARPAL eX TAT2 with the carbon pattern.

    I am just a little bit worried about the O-Thumb thing don't know how to describe

    and as I can see they have just 2 fingers don't they?

    instead of the hayabusa which have an "Y-Thumb thing"

    It looks like just your forefinger and little finger is covered and in the gloves

    But I guess it isn't like that

    No, it's not like that, there's just a separate piece for the middle two fingers. I'm not exactly sure why, but I've seen that on a lot of mma gloves. The Hayabusa's have the same thing.

    oh thank you very much...

    so which one would you prefer?

    Ooooh. The Aries offer the same dual-finger thing. It's not one single hole, bu I think made to offer more support. You can still flex your fingers.

    If you have other MMA gloves then try the PunchTown's. Be the first to review them! Let me know what you think because the carbon's would be great cage gloves.

    Awesome. Do you live in the US? If so how much was the glove?

    The Karpal eX TAT2's are very nice competition gloves.
     
  15. I've never seen the PunchTown brand before. Looks identical to Fairtex but with an interesting look to them. I like the look of the glove, but the brand name is dumb.

    I bought a pair when I went to Seni.

    Nice gloves and the boa system is actually pretty decent its quick and you get a really secure fit that does not budge.

    Yeah, anything with snakes, skulls, and flames on it is pretty lame. I'm suprised there's no 8-balls or dice on fire.

    Nonetheless, the Carbon's look really good. Rising, let us know what you think of them! And at $70 you were shooting for around the same price as the Hayabusa's

    I just put my review up on the site. I'm on holiday at the moment so it's not gonna be on forum format anytime soon. (Yes, it's more than actually copying and pasting. ;))
