Thread: The best combat gear on the market?

  1. #1

    Default The best combat gear on the market?

    As the owner of a major ecommerce business (www.fightshop.com) within MMA, I am always interested to hear what people believe to be the best brands on the market. In terms of gloves, general equipment/apparel....we stock it all so will not be offended but again, een to get your take on what is "the best!" Cheers guys!

    And where would you typically buy the gear? Clubs/gyms or online/high street? (I dont want this to be a selling thread, I just want to understand the routes that most of the brands use....)

    I have picked up most of my stuff on trips to Thailand but also pick up stuff online as there are no shops nearby that sell a good selection of gear. I just ordered some Raja custom made 16oz gloves online and they came direct from Thailand no hassle.

    a decent uk supplier of Top King would be awesome.
    I don't believe in belts. There should be no ranking system for toughness.

    Twins / Fairtex / Title

    I pick most of my stuff up from gym shop and so does everyone in the gym as you can
    try the kit on and see how it feels,

    I dont buy online as much as I used to

    I have 10 oz MTG gloves that are great, Sandee 16oz gloves which are brilliant and twins shin pads that also do well even though they take a bashing. Also got a couple pairs of top king shorts cos i love their crazy colours.

    I have had cheap kit in the past but would never buy anything like that again because it never lasts.

    I always buy online because its cheaper and my choice of website is usually a mix of price and reputation. I find the cheapest, often using money off codes, and check that they are a reputable company. I wouldnt buy from fightshop due to being too expensive.

    Im not based in the uk at the moment, Ive always used twins, I think from tradition rather than being better;but have to give a thumbs up for Top King and Boon as well. Top King shorts are a little shorter than Twins ones, but their equipment has good life. Boon are well made quality products.
