Fairtex gloves are typically well made and generally high quality, I have had absolutely no problems with the 10oz gloves and before I turned to boxing had been competing using them in muay thai and sanshou for about 5 years with no noticeable wear

They had them at combatsports for 39.00 and I found a 20% off coupon online.

These are the gloves I ordered. They're no longer on sale.

Here's a few pics. As you can see it's an excellent quality glove. Maybe the stitching could be a little better, but I don't see it being a deal breaker. Compared to my Grants, the leather is hard and the padding is pretty stiff. They have a long cuff and offer great wrist support. I had pair of Reyes before these and didn't like the Reyes at all, they were just too wide for my hands. These gloves are not as wide as the Reyes and have a nice tight fit for my hands(which are not big). I'll post some cons(nothing major) with pictures explaining what I don't like in my next post.

You can notice on the black leather, a bump where the red and black leather meet. With my Grants and Reyes you cant really feel the bump, but with the Fairtex you can really feel it on the inside.

I wish the finger length was a little longer. Like I said in the other post my hands aren't big or long. In this pic you can notice my finger protruding a little bit, I hope it's just a matter of me needing to break in the glove.

I noticed the thumb is a little tight on the right glove, again i'm sure it's just a matter of me breaking in the gloves.

Great pics. Let me know if they are good for sparring because on ringside they it said next to the gloves that they aren't good for sparring. I also have read reviews on the everlast ones and people said they are great so I'll just wait till I make my decision.

I also noticed they only have 14oz. or 18oz. on the Fairtex gloves at ringside.

The gloves I bought from combatsports is labeled a sparring glove and the ringside version is labeled training. Weird thing is combatsports and ringside are partner brands and they both have the same picture and item number Item# TG18 for two differently described gloves.
