    The Tokushus would be better for sparring. The Fairtex need breaking in. No experience with twins though. Csnt go wrong with the Tokushus though. But if you're willing to spend $70+ on sparring gloves you should get the C17s they have the best padding for sparring. Its very cushioning.

    Depends on what you yourself need in a sparring glove.

    I'd lean towards the Twins because they have the most forgiving padding for your partners of the 3 choices and are great for both punching and clinching if you're privy to plum (unlike the Tokushu, which have fantastic wrist support that's great for punching but not so great for dexterity in the clinch). Like the Fairtex, though, the Twins will take time to break in -- all Thai gloves are like Italian dress shoes, they take time to break in, but once broken in, border on semi-custom levels of comfort.
