Well the T*U Japanese Heatseekers (I own a blackpair) are modeled after winning, and someone I know recently provided photos of a comparison between the two so I decided to share. Also they are physically very similar but the padding in the T*U gloves are harder (to what degree, I don't know) than the Winnings.

Not my photos.

ehh they tried.

Closest one yet, unfortunately they couldn't get some good foam in there. And you can tell the leather or whatever they used isnt as good as the winning synthetic.

Oh well, what are they like 70 bucks on sale? Pretty good for the money, I might get a pair.

How do you know the foam is not good? Granted its not like winnings, I have a pair and it seems pretty good.

Just curious, how can you tell the leather is not as good?

Edit: Leather might not be the best I've seen. If you think the T*U is close than Fighting is close but a step below T*U. I just compared em, the Fightings are slightly more compact, and the finger portion is a little more extended.

From the looks of it, its nearly identical. But, the foam/ergonomics is what seperates Winnings from the rest.

Hmm, I'm tempted to try out those Triumphs though, if I love the feel of 'em, I might just keep 'em as my back up.

winning pro gloves are made of real leather. the soft type ones are the ones made of synthetic

they have a lot less padding than the winning, and most probably less quality too

according to title, the T*U have 1.75' of padding, while the title platinum have more than 3'

Yeah that's very true. But for the price that you can get it at its not a bad Winning clone IMO, very comfy and good padding (not as great as Winning I assume). I also like Fighting despite some people not liking em.

It just looks like Winnings and that's about it, huh.

Thats a damn lot of padding, maybe the T*Us have more compressed padding?

That's another thing about Winnings, their gloves feels lighter than the other brands that weigh the same.

But, I actually brought my Grants and Winnings to work and weighed them on the scale at work and they both weighed the same. But the Winnings just feels lighter.
