    How do you rate the quality vs other gloves you have owned in terms of the leather and workmanship etc. I guess what I am trying to say is how will these compare to my Cleto Reyes for example.

    The craftsmanship is top notch that's for sure. Comparable to Reyes/Winning. The leather seems a bit grainy compared to the smoothness of Reyes/Winning leathers. I have no idea if this has to do with the metallic colors, but they definitely seem high quality.

    Though to be honest I generally can't really tell the differences on leather qualities; I just know it isn't as smooth, but they definitely feel tough/study.

    @deh707 , I'm not sure if you have answer this, but could use New Sporting gloves for sparring or are the padding a bit stiff?

    Yeah it should be fine. It's practically the same as Reyes, maybe a bit softer.

    They're supposed to be 99% similar to Grants, with the padding and leather being completely identical.

    You pleases you went for the extra padding or you think not really needed

    Yeah I like it, especially with the way it was structured, soft layer as the first layer to make contact with the knuckles, so it's comfortable right away.

    Without it, it would be a bit denser as the knuckles would be making contact with the default padding (standard natural latex as opposed to soft natural latex).

    I prefer this over simply having more of the default padding (which is probably the method of the Cleto Reyes Extra Padding model).

    But it's probably not really needed... It's a personal preference thing really.

    I also figure that with more padding = more overall durability.
