On the advice of many here and elsewhere on the interwebs, I decided it was time to up my hand protection game and splurge on the best that money can buy. As advertised, quality of workmanship was astounding, fit and finish top notch, but... every time I hit the heavy bag with a cross, I jam my thumb, to the point that the gloves are barely usable. What is going on?? I've read that if your thumb hurts, you're punching wrong, but I've been boxing for five years in half a dozen different brands of gloves, and I've NEVER had thumb problems before. Is there something different about the thumb placement on Winnings? Has anyone else ever had this problem before? I did not research thumb placement of different brands before buying because it never occurred to me that this was a difference-maker. Am I the only person on the planet who doesn't like his Winnings?? I feel like I'm taking crazy pills.
