    You should just go ahead and buy the stock 16oz Win1. TB makes great gloves. You won't regret it.

    I dunno; it's up to you.

    Do you intend to use them for bagwork or sparring?

    If bagwork, I would get them in the same oz weight as the gloves you will use in fights because I think it's beneficial to train with fight weight gloves as much as possible.

    If sparring, I would get 16oz because I dislike really heavy gloves and I therefore want to use the minimum glove weight conventionally permissible for sparring in my boxing community.

    If you are experienced enough in boxing, go with 18oz. If not, then 16oz because 18oz could be heavier than you think.

    I know they're called Win1 because they basically ape the Winning design, but how much do they feel like Winning?

    The padding on my 12oz Winning-style TBs doesn't feel much like the padding on my 12oz Winnings. It's not as soft. But they're still great gloves. Apparently 16oz TBs are softer for sparring, but I don't know for sure because I don't own a 16oz pair.

    The 16 oz Winning-style TB (lace-up) are definitely much softer compared to the 12 oz TB (velcro) I can't speak to how they compare to Winnings as I've never owned a pair.

    18oz is half 1kg. You might have seen pro boxers holding dumbbell and punching. They are 0.5kg or 1kg.

    18oz could feel like that.

    If you have 1.1lb dumbbells, try to punch holding them in your hands. Feeling okay and arms feeling good, then you can go with 18oz

    I have both gloves, TB's Win1 Padding is definitely not as soft as Winning's. The feedback on Winning's are better too but that's why Winning is in the status (and price range) that they are in. I would be lying like E*pert Bo*ing with his initial Sabas SS review if I told you the Win1 feels remotely like a Winning Glove.

    However, if you don't compare TB's Win1 to Winnings, they are a league of their own. Good protection, decent feedback, definitely an all around great glove. The only thing I don't like about my TB Gloves is their thumb design. It's positioning is very uncomfortable to me and that's why I can't stand using my TB Glove for long sessions. I heard that Mr. Irfan recently made some changes to their thumb design, so going to give their stock gloves another try in the near future.

    I just got TB Win1 gloves in 16oz. The stock Maroon color.
    They are actually 18oz on the scale. But they work great and really do look and feel like a luxury custom product and the leather smells delicious.
    I can slam the bag hard, and even with knuckle injuries I’m nursing on both hands, I can hit hard and be ok as long as I wrapped right.


    Now this threat is supposed to be about TB headgear. I just ordered the gladiator model today. I can update when it arrives.

    Yep, I agree with that, the Win1 padding is not as soft as Winning; but as you go on to say, it doesn't really matter because TB gloves are sweet anyway.
