I have never used the higher end Everlast gloves or the Cletos. Has anyones used either glove, and what was your impressions about it?

What would u guys recommend? I have never tried Mexican style gloves so i dont know what to expect. What is the fit like, and the padding over the knuckles?

the Everlast has alot more padding than the Cleto Reyes, if your a puncher then get Everlast. Both good gloves

You guys think that even the 16oz reyes have little padding?

Im not too concerned with the knuckle padding, but more with the wrist support.

Oh and, what color? :biggthump :dance:

it depends what color head gear do you use? shoes? what color equipment do you have now?

:lol1: Brazil colors....

Nah, but i like red, so i was thinking either red, black , or white. But they're so plain looking ya know.

I heard wearing red gives you a slight advantage over others wearing different colors.

Go with the Reyes all the way. They feel a lot more compact and give a better pop after you hit the bag. They have plenty of padding for the knuckles.

Yeah i have a pair of everlast training gloves and they are pretty comfy. The reyes gloves are called the puncher's glove for a reason.

so you think i should pick up the 16oz or the 18oz?

I know 16 oz is standard, but im leaning toward to Cletos right now and ive heard that Cletos feel lighter than other gloves even though they weigh the same.

Im 24 bro, im done growing. I just want glove that are stiff.

My title platinum gloves suck ass, the seem to flex when i hit the heavy bag, and that hurts my hands. I have a pair of grants that are lighter but seem to be more stiff and secure.

is there any way i can make this thread a poll?

well in amateurs they are going to give you some gloves and having a pop is not advantge because you are sparring with low power punching

i agree with you and the strong power punching KO is not something that you when sparring so it is better to get a gloves that will help you and make you feel comfortable

have anyone used the winning gloves?
