    Hell yeah! Hell no!


    I'm rather fond of these, but they are a little hard for sparring.

    I thought you were mocking him or something. heh. Ah well, I didn't like how those seemed to form around the hand. They looked like they would make it difficult or uncomfortable to transition from striking into grappling.

    Aren't they similar to what they use in some amateur MMA?

    No, amateur gloves are same amount of padding but are more condensed.

    Well I gots my gloves in today. Tried them out and surprisingly the open thumb glove (without loop) has the snuggest fit of any glove I've used.

    My old gloves were just century training gloves, and tore apart after extensive use.

    these:


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    SCI open thumb MMA glove

    Anyway, the open thumb ones have an extra piece of elastic material that you put your wrist through before you wrap the velcro strap around which gives considerable wrist support for fighting or padwork. The completely open design feels really natural when grappling, and since it's so snug on the wrist it's quite easy to transition from striking to grappling without the occasional slipping of the material like I had with my old gloves.


    Top Contender MMA glove w/thumb loop


    Although not as snug as the combat sports glove, this pair is definately quite a few steps up from my old gloves. Much tighter to the hand, and the stitching is double stitched in the problem areas. Three pieces of velcro as opposed to the one big piece on my old gloves really have shown me the difference to a real glove used for fighting and a training glove used for bagwork and light sparring. There's nothing more annoying than sparring and having your partner nearly pull your glove off because they accidentally caught hold of the strap. The only thing I like about these better than the sports combat gloves is the padding that covers the back of the hand. It has just as much padding there as it does covering the knuckle where the other gloves are thicker around the knuckle but just slightly cushioned on the back of the hand.

    All in all I feel this has been money well spent, and I'd recommend either one of these gloves.
