I finally scooped up a pair of the new model 16oz Grant Professional Training gloves (I'll post pics of them later). It's been a minute since I've had a pair of fresh gloves but I was wondering to those who own or have owned a pair of these, when you first got them were the cuffs really flat and was it hard to get your hand in them initially? They are really stiff and I'm sure over time they will form to my forearms and whatnot but I was just curious if anyone else had this issue and if so how long did it take to break them in? Did they eventually feel very comfortable? I haven't used them yet as I literally got them yesterday but I am planning on trying them out after work. Feedback?

They will break in and feel amazing. As for how long it depends on how and how often you use them.

Try 4 months of consistent use.

I bought 2 proffesional grant gloves 10oz. After 3 months the thumb started to slip from the inside. they still feel good though. better than everlast and winning thats for sure. Reyes feel the best but dont offer much "D"

I just got mine as well and they are pretty stiff too. I only used them once yesterday for a quick bag workout and they felt really nice even though they haven't been broken in yet. I had to loosen the laces big time to get my hand through the flat stiff cuffs so it's a normal thing I guess. Enjoy your gloves man.

I owned the same exact gloves, and they were extremely stiff when I first got them. Once broken in though, they are pretty amazing. I just used them as my regular training gloves for a few weeks to break them in, now I use them strictly for sparring.
