    is the winning headgear really that muh better than those from ring to cage ect? iv owned a pair of winning gloves before but havent tried its headgear i had rival headgear i didnt really like it very much im stuck between winning ring to cage or top boxer atm

    if the winning is a significant different then i dont mind paying the extra 100 dollars for it but not for a minor improvement

    Apparently the Topboxer and UMA copies are pretty close to the real thing. They might actually be indistinguishable in a blind trials. No one has done such a thing, though.

    the weight seems to be the biggest thing. as lots of good headgears can weigh up to 20oz vs winnings can be around 12 oz or so

    I have the Winning FG2900 and it's very light. I'm not sure how the TopBoxer and UMA clones compare in that regard, but I think they're very light also.

    Lol while there may be some ‘rich douchey’ things you could bring to the gym (I don’t know like a Gucci embroidered gym bag or something I don’t really care about these things) but protective gear is not one of them. You can potentially save a lot of money with protective gloves, head gear, mouth guards, etc. than you spend. A broken hand, brain trauma, lacerations, missing teeth, eye damage, whatever it may be could cost you A LOT more than what you will spend on nice training gear.

    Sorry to hijack this thread. Hoping one of you guys can help.
    I was looking at buying the FG2900 from Rakuten, shipped to the UK, but I am unsure of the correct size.
    My head measures 59cm (23.25 inches). I tried on a Large TopKing head guard but it was too tight.
    Should I go with a Large in Winning or request a 2Large to be on the safe side? It's a bit expensive to return it.
    Thanks.

    Your best bet would be to compare your head to measurement to Winning's guide, right? That's what I did.

    Shape plays a big factor into it. For the person that posted the question I would do a search, this has been discussed on this forum in depth

    Really? Is shape a big factor in general? Or just in a few vocal special cases? I would've thought that most people just measure their head and then compare it to Winning's guide. And that's that. After all, the FG-2900 is not rigid; it's flexible and highly adjustable.
