Hi guys, Im after some good gloves for bag work and training. Went to a shop today as I wanted Hayabusa gloves but they basically told me there crap for bags etc. So im a bit lost.
Not bothered on cost they just need to be good.
Thanks in advance

Ive got a pair of Cleto Reyes bag gloves. Pretty nice, you can get them from Sugar Rays online.

Sandee Bag Gloves ~ one of the best gloves on the market. ( in middle of may )
Master ~ Cheap Leather Gloves ~ but good for basic work outs.

What are the normal sandee ones like you sell mate? Any good for bags and general training?

Sandee are a better fit and a decent leather so they can take a beating, I would always wear wraps as bag gloves generally dont have any wrist support.
I have sold loads of both designs and never had any complaints - the Sandee are a better glove overall which is why the price is higher.
The bag gloves come in 3 sizes so go off your mma gloves, but also take into account hand wraps.
So if you are wearing a Medium MMA Glove then its a Large Sandee Bag Glove with a 9 foot wrap.
I Have Black and Red coming in all 3 sizes ~ should be in - in about a week or so.
If you do order a pair make sure you use the " cage warriors " code for your 10% discount and I will send you a free pair of 9 foot wraps as well.

I need a pair asap really, Plus im totally new. Had a few lessons at Kaobon Last year and smashed my foot up. was off my feet for 6 months it was so bad (snapped 5th metatarsel in 4 places) so im only getting back into it. so not sure on size? Id say im about medium at a guess. im about a size 8 glove if i remember from my army days??
Would normal snadee boxing gloves do or am I best with bag gloves?

I use Boxing Gloves over Bag Gloves Mate.
I do sell bag gloves as you asked about them I didnt like to question you.
I would use a pair of 10oz for basic bag work or even 12oz or if you are really going for it then go 14oz or 16oz ~ it will depend on what your hitting.
Focus Mitts and a bit of bag work ~ 10oz or 12oz
Bag Work Only ~ 14oz - 16oz if your are a heavy hitter ( big glove )

10 oz fairtex gloves are great for bagwork, got them in Thailand for 1100 baht not sure how much they are here though.

I think I'm in the minority here but I love using just plain old bag gloves.
I get a much better 'feel' and feedback in shot connection using bag gloves.
I've got some Cleto Reyes thumbless and a pair of bag gloves with a full wrist wrap (almost like 6oz boxing gloves) which i picked up in Australia.
My oldest favs (not sure they make them anymore) were a pair of tan coloured suede Lonsdale mittens which I had almost 20 years ago, when Lonsdale were still a quality brand.
They're still up in the attic somewhere.
I'm sure God gives gloves souls if you use them long enough.
