    Twins Special 10oz. BGLL-1 vs. BGVL-3 Photo Comparison and Short Review

    True Weight:
    BGLL-1: 10oz
    BGVL-3: 12oz

    Reasons to get BGLL-1 over BGVL-3:

    - Lighter
    - Better overall fit
    - Better thumb position
    - Good fist position
    - Faster to break in
    - Precise in hitting the target with knuckles

    Reasons to get BGVL-3 over BGLL-1:

    - Convenience of Velcro closure
    - If you need extra padding at the back of the hand for blocking
    - Thicker and Softer padding over the knuckles


    *Note:
    - Wrist protection is not the best for both gloves. If you like these gloves but with better wrist protection get 12oz or bigger.

    - As the weight goes up in these gloves there overall characteristic changes as well. I will do the same comparison in 16oz in a few weeks time for those who wish to use them in sparring.

    12oz and above are more comfortable, but 8oz and 10oz mmm... just not for me. Might get 16oz for sparring.

    Thanks man! Im not a good writer so I decided to just take a decent photo comparison. For this shoot I used 1 250w strobe with 42" shoot through umbrella and 1 flat white reflector on the left.:)

    I'm not even going to pretend like I know what you're talking about. :) not to derail your thread, but I'm lookin for a budget setup to take decent product photos. Have any recommendations?
