I'm in the market for some new handwraps.

The everlast ones suck imo. And I've been looking into getting some grant or ringside wraps.

Which ones would you guys recommend?

Everything made or even associated with Everlast sucks. They should have gone out of business 10 years ago. My favorite wraps of all time are the Ringside Gel Shock Handwraps: http://www.ringside.com/Ringside-Gel-Shock-Handwrap/productinfo/GSHW/ Good looking, convenient, protective, and comfortable as they can be. I hated wrapping my hands until I started using them.

I wouldn't buy any products from Grant other than their "Professional" line of gloves. Everything by Grant other than that line of gloves is overpriced trash (literally).

Sorry I can't say more, I have to run now. Whatever you choose, good luck.

I have the grant 200". kinda dissapointed by them. The material is a little rough and can get too tight. Its supposedly elastic but not really stretchy. To each their own though

I also have the title gel wraps like the ones above. Theyre decent, but I like the feel of elastic wraps around my hands better.

For training gloves, Ringside IMF gloves are the way to go, but since you said $40-50 it's a different story. You can't find many quality gloves for that price. I hate almost all of Title's products, and the only pair of their gloves I've been happy with are these (and I cut the cuffs off): http://store.titleboxing.com/tsgv.html

So for that price on gloves, I'd shop Ringside first and see if there's anything you like for that price and as a second resort I'd get the Title ones above (if you can afford $60+ shipping). I hate how down and pessimistic I am on all the glove brands but Ringside, Cleto Reyes, and Grant (only their Professional series) are the only brands I've been satisfied with. Everlast and Title can go to hell (except for Title's gloves that I listed above).

Your wayyyyy to critical. Everlast cheap stuff is trash I agree but if you get their top of the line stuff, it's very good.

I think the Everlast wraps you get are ok, even better than the same prices ringside and Title because they last longer. The Title and Ringside tend to rip at the velcro once you have used them enough times. I have had these Everlast wraps and they have lasted a long time.

I have some Cleto Reyes wraps that have lasted me about 15 years, no exaggeration. The only down fall is they don't have that Mexican style elasticity, which is weird since they are Mexican made.

Title Gel series gloves are good for training, Title has actually stepped up in the quality dept and they have the best prices.

I use Reyes gloves because they fit my hands so good but they are expensive.

If your looking for a cheaper alternative they are ok but those are some of Everlast cheaper stuff.

If I was you for a few dollars more and real leather instead of the synthetic leather those Everlast offer you, get these:

Dangit, I wish I would have seen this post a little earlier because I already ordered the everlast.

Well I guess I'll get some better training gloves when I can afford them, and I'll just give the everlasts to my younger bro.

I have used these wraps since Ringside put them out. I tried the Everlast and a few other similar wraps, but these top them all IMO.

Not only do you get more protection in your knuckles compared to regular wraps, but you also get a long mexican'ish style handwrap along with it. These two paired together work awesome.

You do not have to waste so much wrap going over and over your knuckles, so you are able to focus more on your wrist and thumb. The stitching on the finger inserts comes loose eventually, but you get more them your dollers worth with these. To top it off, you can easily wash them just as you would regular hand wraps(Just do not throw them in the dryer, let them air dry).

They have gone up in price a little bit but are still very much worth every penny and then some. You wont find better protection unless you are having your trainer wrap your hands professional with gauze every workout.

180" mexican ringside handwraps are good.

Try and buy better quality gloves as they usally last longer and end up paying for themselves in the end.

From my experience I would stay away from neverlast products.

It's too late I already ordered them from ebay.

But I will get much better higher quality training gloves in the near future when I can afford some.

I dont look at brands, I recommend Mexican style wraps, they give you a better fit and better protection.

Mexican Gauze, Everlast or Cleto Reyes Handwraps r the best and unmatched for me.

I like Everlast though since they are easy to put on though. :drive:
