Id like the Winning FG 5000, but at the price of 2 or 3 Xbox 360s, I dont see how its worth it right now.

I was looking at this....anyone here have this? it looks like its designed similar to the FG 5000, but obivously its by Fighting.

Or recommend something else under $200 that provides good protection? I dont really see much reviews on headgear, anywhere.

I read a review where the gap between the forehead and the bar is slightly big. You ever notice a punch slip through since the gap is so big in your headgear?

damn that is nice, do you where to order that from. I dont see it on ringside. Does it have to be special ordered from mexico?

yes straight from mexico. but you can also get them on titles website, not sure if the quality is the same though. with the gloves i know theres a big difference between the reyes you buy in mexico (legit ones) and the "fake" reyes you get in the US (on title, ringside etc.). this headgear is 150 bucks on title but you can get it for around 120 on ebay from this mexican seller

lol yeah. my winning headgear is large, and when i tried everlast's "unisize" headgear, all it took was 1 grazing punch for the headgear to get pretty damn uncomfortable

i wouldn't imagine what would happen to you if you have a smaller head than mine lol

you must have a pinhead then

besides its not one size fits all its one size fits most. anything around what the average looks like whether its a little too small or a little too big is perfectly fine. its medium. guys with L will fit in and guys with S size. xl and xs will be a problem

i cant find this version from ringside or title. I think I found the ebay seller, but $40 for shipping kills it for me.

How about some regular competition head gear? That's all I wear personally, yes it's less protective, but ehh I like it that way, it makes me move my head more and I get used to punches so when they land I'm not suddenly in shock due to me not being used to less protection. If you don't plan on fighting though then perhaps the cleto or grants are the way to go with better protection than competition headgear.

umm no? sizes are made for a reason. people's head aren't the same size, and you can learn it the hard way when you spend $129 + $40 shipping just to head your headgear blown out of place just by 3 or 4 punches

here's an example:

<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/252MyXrQbMY&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/252MyXrQbMY&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>

The same guy reviews the everlast Safemax facebar in another video which comes in sizes L/XL and S/M. It looks alot better and definitely slimmer. Just type in everlast safemax headgear. The youtube channel is ratethisgear.

you act like every headgear has the same size. just because everlast produces a lot of **** doesnt mean everyone else does. by the way thats a one size fits all, stuff like that is not even possible. the comparison is terrible.

i can only speak for reyes and anybody with a small-large head should get the reyes headgear. if you have an XS or XL head youre better off with a really big headgear. i wear that thing, just trust me..

thanks everyone, still havent decided yet though.

The everlast looks nice, but for some reason I just cant trust everlast. Im still thinking about it though.

I like the reyes but the shipping is too much

I need the facebar. ill spar alot, and I dont want to risk a busted nose. Anyone at all have the no contact headgear from fighting? Ive searched around and I havent seen a single review on it anywhere.

I could just end up getting the FG 5000, maybe

Stop being a little emo ***** and dissing winning because you cannot afford it.

IT IS THE BEST GEAR IN THE WORLD, THAT IS WHY THE BEST FIGHTERS ONLY WEAR IT.

the everlast looks decent but if youre gonna dish out around 150 bucks you might as well get a grant / reyes for that kind of money

I rekon that value for money twins have the best headgears.

And the ones with the facebar i hate using unless i forgot my mouthguard or something because u get hit on the bar with punches that would miss you usually and it spins your head around ndat.

I guess its alright if your a pro and then you get better head movement, but as an amateur twins all the way.
