I went with the straight cuff (instead of the usual triple rib cuff) that is typically used on pro fight gloves, and paid a bit more to have an extra 1cm of soft latex added as the very inner layer to replicate Floyd's preference of orthopedic Grants that he does in both his training and fight gloves. Now I don't know if this is 100% true; but I hear that New Sporting used to (or still does) manufacture for Grant. EDIT 7/6/2018: Well they have arrived and I got a chance to log 10 heavybag rounds! First impressions: i would have to rate them a 10/10! Before opening the box, I could smell the strong metallic like leather lol . Weight: both 17.3oz. Not surprised since Mexican gloves usually come in a little heavier. Take into account of the extra padding I requested . They would have probably been around 16oz if not for this. They fit similar to a 14oz Reyes but with a straight thumb similar to a Sabas ProSeries/Prime. Easily make a fist in them. Excellent. The liner is very smooth, which I hear is the only difference to actual Grants, which has a rough liner . There's a very comfortable piece of padding patch at the finger tips inside the gloves . I have no idea what that is but it was the same as Sabas Prime. The padding is excellent, pops like Reyes but more protective (less shock) probably due to the extra 1cm soft natural latex padding I requested. Speaking of Reyes, I was told by New Sporting that they no longer use natural latex (which New Sporting uses) and now use synthetic latex in their training gloves. This leads to less durability due to sweat breaking down synthetic latex easier, in addition to trapping heat easier. This is sad, as Reyes have always known to be champion of the durability market. That is all for now. Any questions are welcome.
