Owned For: Less than a week
Pros: Quality is as good as any gloves not named Winning.
The stitching is top notch. Tight and consistent.
The padding is SUPERB. Multi-layered style. Soft inside and medium on the outside. They are not glued together like in some cheaper brands.
The locked-thumb position is very comfortable .
Plenty of room for long handwraps with knuckle foundation.
The impact area is curved towards the inside and is really wide/square ( not sharp like on Everlast and Ringside ). So you when you make contact, you're making contact with full "box" of your fists.
Cons: These cons are for boxers only:
The double velcro and thick wrist/cuff padding were designed for MMA'rs. They take kick blows real well. Unfortunately, they add some bulk and weight in the wrist area. Boxers really don't care much for a lot of padding in that area.
The gloves could be slicker if it were maybe half an inch narrower and maybe a taper wrist support.
Comments: Peeps, give these gloves a good consideration. They are a great value imho. I've seen a lot worse gloves for more .
I would rate these gloves higher than Windy or Fairtex. Definitely much better value than Combat Sports
I have a pair of Everlast MX as well and Hayabusa is so much better built .
I can't wait for Hayabusa to start making boxing fight gloves .
