    Hahaha im not sure man, i really like the green lace ups. Especially the green pro fight lace ups that green black lace up contrast is awesome.

    The MX velcro's got some good reviews on youtube by some good reviewers. I am curious myself. I love my powerlocks and protex3's. I hear the mx are also closer to true weight. If you all don't buy a pair I am...will put a review up. Hopefully a video as well with them in use.

    IM BACK FROM THE DEAD PEOPOEEEEEE god I miss those powerlocks, I'm thinking about getting another pair for sparring (foam split on the last pair but they were the shit). I should write some reviews as I've been using the everlast MX training glove, and the c3 hook and loop glove here and there since the powerlocks gave out.

    However my main glove has been a pair of rival RS1's recommended by stratocaster, and have been fantastic. I think Rival is a great brand with much better quality control than everlast. Unfortunately I wasn't dilligent about airing them out after training and they're getting smelly and despite my clorox wipes and various sprays I'm losing the battle...it really blows they have a lot of life in them still and look almost new despite me using them since around...october? I also got RB11's per his reviews and have been great on the bag as well.

    Try making homemade glove dogs filled with cedar if "the stank" hasnt fully set in yet.

    What do you think? Should I pull the trigger? I have more gloves than I know what to do with, but I always wanted to give these a try.

    The trigger has been pulled. Boxing gear seems to be the only thing I spend money on anyway. Next might be the white/blue Ringside IMF gloves, but I'll wait awhile.

    I have put 200 plus rounds on mine and they still look new and are doing great. Glad I spent the 113 bucks on them. Best fitting glove I have owned in quit some time.

    Just got mine, off the bat theyre very very stiff gloves. They have a cool look to them though. Low quality construction, nice liner, thumb seam pinches a little, definitely top heavy but the gloves dont bend. The hand compartment is tight, sort of wide but tight and i definitely won't be able to use a lot of knuckle padding or else it'll be uncomfortable.
