    So I just decided to do a brief glove review of my three pair of gloves!
    I will generally discuss my Raja 16oz. boxing gloves from 2015, then my Booster Pro v3 14oz. boxing gloves and my Hayabusa Tokushu 10oz. boxing gloves. To give you some background information, I'm 6'3'' and around 180-185 lbs. My hand are big, but not like very very big haha! I have 8 amateur K1 fights and I train around 5 times a week

    Raja 16oz.

    By far the best fitting of the bunch! These are so comfy! Good wrist support and padding is really ok. Like you see on the pictures, the glove is quite compact but thick. The padding is quite firm and I used them for sparring, but even if they are 16oz. they give quite the impact. Not so good for hard sparring! The gloves shine on the bag and pads, even if they are 16oz. they 'fly'. They are like very good to throw punches, as they fit more like a Western styule boxing glove than a Muay thai glove. They give such a nice feedback and 'crack'. They are so niceee for pads! So like I mentionned they give (indside) more the feeling of being a Western style glove, but they definitely look Thai. So I think they look good also. Now not everything is good though. The break in period was a real pain WT*. The padding is quite firm and the biggest issue is quality to me. I ordered them online and the first pair I got was like one glove was twice the size of the other one??? But I got shipped new ones for free, so that's that. Now the leather isn't that special to me (Booster is softer). But like they aren't falling apart, but small pieces of the leather are falling of from the red part o_O. Last but not least, the grip bar... So I said the gloves are comfy and all and the gloves are thight. But if I don't keep my hand flexed into a fist, my pinky doesn.t touch the end of the glove en the grip bar presses against it, quite bizar.

    Booster Pro v3 14oz.

    Also a great fit, thight in the beginning also but not as thight as the Raja. The fit isn't Thai style, not Western boxing style, it's something in between! You can't really open your hand well to clinch, but you can open it a bit, so yeah in between! The leather is like really smooth and the gloves are long. The gloves are rather big yeah. The thing with the glove being so big and only 14oz. it makes it less padded overal. But they do the job and protect my hand well! Wrist support is good, but not as good as Raja nor Hayabusa. The gloves are great overall, because the padding is softer than the Raja you can spar not too hard with them. It doens't give the same feedback as the Raja on the pads or bag. They are nice to use, but the Raja stand out here because there is more feedback and the 'crack' is better. I prefer these than Twins gloves. But overall I prefer Raja than the Booster. But I still love these also!<cheer>

    Hayabusa Tokushu 10oz.

    I got mixed feelings about these. I bought them to better prepare myself before a competition to the weight of the fight gloves (I fight K1). The thing is the design is weird, you love it or not. I like it but the finishing of the glove is quite shitty. The stitches and all are not that nice! The gloves are also a bit too small inside, even if from the start I could actually train well in them, unlike the Raja that where killing my hands. So these gloves are small, but yeah 10oz.! The wrist support is by far the best I ever had with the dual strap system. The fit inside is ok, I don't like the really curved thumb position, after some time it starts to hurt a bit. Maybe because yeah, my hand are too big haha! I read some negative comments about the lining, I don't think it's that bad. The gloves dry quickly and aren't that warm on the hands. I only use the gloves for pad and bagwork. They are really nice to use, there isn't a lot of padding, but the padding is like really, really good. I don't feel a lot when punching haha. Feedback isn't as good as the Raja and even not like the Booster. They give a nice crack though. I like them, but my hands are a bit too big to really enjoy them!

    So if anyone got a specific question, feel free to ask it! I quickly wrote this, so I probably forgot to mention some things :) I'm going to Thailand in a month so I'll probably buy some Boon gloves! Only read good things on Boon, so I'll give them a try and review them!

    The Raja boxing gloves are a piece of shit. We bought Raja's wholesale boxing gloves and 20% of the total had stains, deformations and breakages. 20%!!!

    Customers have complained that they have been broken just a month after they started using them.

    The manufacturer? Their customer service is the worst. We have sent you photos and videos of the problems. It's been 3 months and they do not give us a satisfactory solution.

    Do not throw your money away with this mark.

    Damn! Not nice to hear... The first pair I got on Muaythaistuff was indeed deformed as you said. This pair is nice and they are really nice to train with! But yeah quality is indeed an issue...

    That's pretty disappointing in regards to the Hayabusa. Their stuff is so expensive you'd expect top stitching.
