Muay Thai gloves

Postby ryyonvin » Mon Mar 23, 2009 5:41 pm

Hey guys, I'm currently searching for a new pair of 16oz sparring/training gloves for Muay thai. I would mostly be using them for bag and pad work and probably a little light sparring. Right now I'm leaning towards the Windy brand, but I'm also considering Twins or KOfightgear. If you guys have any experience using Windy or Twins I'd really appreciate your imput on how they hold up and compare to other brands. Or if you suggest using a different brand I'd appreciate that as well.

Wandy uses Windy. I know that. Saw it first hand. I use Rival, but it seems like the big timers use Windy, Fairtex, or Reyes

I went with the Twins 16 oz gloves and they feel ten times better than my gloves given to me by the club. I even went out and bought a 10 oz pair of twins for the heavy bag.

yea its pretty much a given to never use everlast. And I've never even heard of tigear so I'll take your word that they blow.

I ended up buying two pairs of twins gloves. One 16oz pair for sparring and a 10oz pair for bag and pad work. I'm really satisfied with both.
