the grant gloves are my favorite. they pack a punch, like the reyes but not quite as hard, but are more protective of the hand. they have great wrist support and are the best looking gloves imo. only winning are more protective.

haven't tried the ultimate classics, but if they are a step above the ringside imf's then they must be pretty dope. i have the ringside imf's too and they are my go-tos. they are very protective.

i use the grants (16's) for out-of-gym sparring and the imf 18's against guys on my team for in-house sparring. i mix them up on the bags too, but mainly use the imf's. i occassionally mix in amateur gloves to get used to 12oz (mainly the impact).

Funny you say that. I was considering buying them until a guy at my gym told be that they're too soft and don't offer enough protection for your hands. Weird.

they are the house glove at my gym. almost everyone has a pair in their arsenal. maybe your friend doesn't have the 18's like I do and the 16's are less padded? i dont know, but i kinda doubt it. these gloves are very well padded and are high quality! i recommend them.

Bottom line. Your sparring partners will absolutely hate you. They are hard as a rock, and feel like getting hit in the face with a basketball. Great gloves though. Great on your hands.

The lining has some durability issues though.

They are bust people up hard. Very good on your hands, but seriously, I stopped using them in house because I feel bad after. The reyes sparring gloves are much much softer compared to the grants. They are pro sparring gloves for a reason. They would be fine to use if your sparring partners are getting paid for the beating, but not on guys that are in there for free.

Also, the lining is really delicate. I tore the lining in mine a while ago, I can still use them, but you have to be careful putting your hand in so that you don't get your fingers caught in the torn lining.

yea, training gloves are commonly used on the bag. they aren't just sparring gloves, after all.

btw, what sets of gloves do you see Collazo using?

I believe that is irresponsible. Sparring gloves are sparring gloves for a reason. I won't spar with people that use their gloves on the bag. It breaks down the padding, and nullifies any protective benefits it provides.

If you want to use an extra set of "training" gloves as bag gloves, thats fine, but using the same set of gloves for sparring and bag work is irresponsible. Peoples health is at stake.

I'm glad your so worried about peoples health. How about you worry about your own health and get some videos posted where your at the top of your game so you can't make any more excuses? :pat:

i've seen him use small pro everlast fight gloves, , big imf 18s, winning 16s for sparring, and another bigger pair of everlasts occassionally as well i think.

i wouldn't worry. they are not cinderblocks with barbed wire attached on the fists. i use them and have been hit by them. they hit a little harder then most gloves, but if you are using 16s or 18s, it shouldn't be too much of a problem. they are a bit harder than, say everlasts though. i got a bloody nose one time from a kid in grants and have drawn some blood as well, but i have have done the same with imfs before. today i had some blood in my right nostril sparring a guy with everlasts. it happens. it's sparring not patty cake afterall.
