Does anyone use the hook & loop converters for lace up gloves? I'd like to get a pair of good lace ups, that I can also use on my own, which means I'd have to use one of those hook and loop (velcro) converters. Do these work okay or is it a waste of time?

Thanks

Just save everyone a whole load of **** and go for normal velcro ones. They are convenient and will give you more time to train! The lace up ones DO NOT help you even though some people make out they do. A bad craftsman always blames his tools.

I don't really see the point...?

If you're going to buy something to convert lace up gloves to velcro, why not just get velcro ones to begin with?

Maybe I'm missing something. *shrugs*

I don't understand what the 'best' of the other world is!?? Them cheapo gloves in that pic will do you no good. Velcro reyes are the best and mould fit to your hand like an unused condom!

Rival's are definitely not "cheapo" gloves.

While it may not be the best, their stuff is still high quality.

Thanks for your comments, guys. I was thinking of getting some Winning gloves, but they're so expensive, I didn't want to get one pair with velcro to train in and one pair with laces to spar in. I thought that if the velcro lace converters worked, that I would just get the laceup Winnings and use them for both. Any thoughts about that?

If you are a puncher, any of that mass produced sweatershop manufactured **** will give you bad hand pains. You have been warned! Invest in a good pair of Reyes or Grant's and look after your body

I have disagree that rival gloves are cheap, on the contrary they have the most durable gloves i have ever used, and in terms of protection they are on par with grant's gloves. And i have used a lot of the gloves out there and i went through all of them in a couple of months, except for the grant and rival gloves.

You obviously never tried rival gloves because your opinion would be different.

Couple of months? WTF, did you eat them, lol? I have seeen rivals and they look a bit like title or any of the orther mid range brands. not sure how much they cost but if they are same price as Grant's they are not worth it. If they are chepa, then fair do's.

Reyes and Grants IMo are a cut above. They last YEARS not months anmd are like the Bentley and Ferrari of boxing gloves. Especially Reyes, which mould fit to your hands like a condom. That is why you never get injured in them. Plus they are the punchers choice an handy of you need to bang someone out!

I got a pair of the velcro Rival gloves. There stuff is pretty good quality. Kind of bulky though, but really helps my speed when I use the smaller gloves in a fight.
