For MMA , not sure to be honest. I like the look of the CS ones. Thinking i might go for the sparring ones when i come to get some. Not really into the pro gloves, not being a pro i dont need them. My mates wouldnt take to kindly me cracking them wearing mma gloves either.

Me an a mate of mine used to spar with the full on MMA gloves , it was pretty full on.. its not everyones cup of tea, or mouth of blood !

Boxing, Reyes , if you look after them they will look after you.

reyes are the best you can get. Far better than Grants, Reyes are a punchers glove. When you have trained in them, dont stick them in your bag wet , let them dry on the side , the vas them , it keeps the leather nice. they will last a long time...

sandee wont come close to a reyes glove , reyes will cost from 100 up , when you try them , they fit like a glove. I have 2 pairs and had them for 2 years. I alternate them each session, hit bags and pads with them. I only use them for boxing and sparring.

yep, I box 3 times a week, one of those is sparring. Other sessions will be pads, fitness and some body sparring.

It is a lot, but thay are a fantastic glove and if you look after them they will last.

I have had a few MMA gloves in my time, I would recommend

Hayabusa Pro Hybrids. I use this a lot for training, very comfy and durable and are open palmed, so great for grappling.

http://www.fightshop.com/HAYABUSA---PRO-HYBRID-MMA-GLOVES-Product-1994.html

and I use Sandee sparring gloves, these are great too, for throwing head and body shots, nice and comfy too!

http://www.fightshop.com/SANDEE---MMA-SPARRING-GLOVE-Product-1558.html


When I started I bought some cheap gloves off ebay. RDX ones, awful. Copies of the older Hayabusa gloves, with the stapping across the palms, just very proor quality. But I suppose you get what you pay for.

Grizzly.
06-01-2010, 12:44 PM
I have RDX MMA Gloves and they are the comfiest fitting glove I have ever worn, much more than the UFC, caged steel, fairtex and Hayabusa. That would be my personal preference.

featherz
06-01-2010, 12:52 PM
PFDR and RDX gloves going for about 16.99 on ebay, are these any good for first gloves, seems you can get shorts, gloves and mits for about 60 quid all in, cant be great quality but the sellers has over 35,000 sales with 99.6% good feedback.

Grizzly.
06-01-2010, 12:56 PM
^ My sentiments exactly.

MrHillman
06-01-2010, 12:59 PM
I just found that the RDX ones that the leather colour and the leather cracked and flaked away after using them for about 4, 2 hour training sessions. Great for begginers and new to mma, for the price and all. But I am Sandee and Busa all the way. To me there like Amex, I dont leave home without em...unless am at tesco's! :P

One things that hasn't been mentioned yet is one of the main purposes of any glove. To protect your sparring partner .
This is one of my main moans about the Hayabusa gear. Great design, exceptional build quality, look great but I think they're just way too hard (boxing gloves expecially) for their purpose.

I've got three pairs of Cleto Reyes. My 14ok lace up are the bollocks, but the 10oz elasticated wrist ones are shit. My Reyes bag gloves were steep and I'm not overly impressed with any thumbless bag glove but they rock on every other front, molded to my fist real well.
I also like my Fairtex and Sandee 14oz's, both recommended.

As for MMA sparring gloves - Tried around 6 different pairs and getting back to priorities, hand protection and partner protection, I'll be staying with my Fairtex until something else comes onto the market. Surprised that no one make an MMA sparring gloves with a lot more padding. Massive gap in the market for heavy hitters and heavyweights.

I've had or used most types, makes and designs of gloves; boxing, bag, mma, mma sparring and have no particular brand loyalties, just do my homework and see what works for me.

Oh, also I don't wrap my hands ever (and to keep my evil twin happy, though it's not advised blah blah blah) and I do see value in doing bagwork etc with no gloves every once in a while.

MrHillman
06-01-2010, 01:54 PM
agreed the busa boxing gloves are a little hard, I have the 16oz ones and stopped using them, for light sparring the Sandee MMA 12oz works well for me and my partners.

With the Hybrid Pro by hayabusa, the glove itself is a lot softer than ever before. Like you say, Experimentation is the key, if you can afford it. As for where I live there is nowhere close for me to go and try out new gear :( so i had to pay for stuff, use em and store em if there not right.

As you say you dont wrap your hands ever? not even on the heavy bag? Just a question mate, as by the sounds of it, am not as experienced as you are, so any reason why not?

I bang out round after round on the heavy bag with no gloves. Takes a while to build it up though.
I came from when I competed Kyokushin after boxing, plus the regular straighteners.
After wrapping hands and using bulky boxing gloves it makes you used to punching with your hands in a false, padded curved 'C' shape rather than a tight balled fist. You can get away with it in gloves but bare-knuckle, you'll mash you hands to fuck.
I know people with a cracking jab, but take the gloves off them they end up smashing fuck out of their first set of knuckles and twisting their wrist.

Totally different skill set to punching properly with no gloves.

Mastabateman, gloves come in different fits, like shoes so I tend to stick to a glove that is tighter fitting from the off, like my Sandee two tone.
Also, gloves stretch, so if you've always worn wraps, then you try them on with no wraps after, of course they're gonna seem big. Plus, if you're used to wearing wraps anything and any glove is gonne seem looser compared to the compressed feeling you're used to.
