    Take a gander at all these gloves.
    I thought that Fairtex catered to the American market.

    So we dont see half of their products.

    Id be interested in the BGL1 or BGL3s, yes in either color displayed.

    Go to the history page on the Fairtex site.


    Lots of stuff on advancing the sport in North America as a primary goal.

    It seems to be a generally accepted fact that Fairtex has used a lot of resources over the years on promoting their brand in the west. Much more so than Twins, Windy, Thaismai, Muay Thai etc. etc.

    the one thing i noticed with fairtex is that they focus more on apparel in the states, whereas elsewhere they focus more on equipment. however Fairtex are changing a lot of things at the moment and we are finding a lot of things been discontinued. the reason why is that they are streamlining their line to better balance the supply and demand issues that all thai factories seem to suffer from.

    On that topic, I was checking out the Fairtex US site yesterday and noticed that the BGV5 sparring gloves are no longer listed on the Gloves page. Does that mean they are discontinued, or just out of stock? I know you can still find them on other online stores, but if they aren't listed on the Fairtex site, well... I'm assuming they distibute to the other sites and those are previous stock that hasn't run out yet.

    Hmmm... That's really odd. Especially since I've found that they are some of my best sellers. I'll contact my supplier tomorrow and see if I can't get an answer on this...

    So I called... As far as they know, the gloves are not on the list of discontinued items. We were both a little confused on why they were no longer listed on the US site, but they are however still listed on the New Zealand site... who knows?
