I have the 16oz long cuff and I like them a lot. To be honest they are my first pair of nice gloves so I do not have much to compare them to though. If you want to use them for bag work, mitts, and sparring get 16 oz. I am not real sure why someone would prefer the short cuff over the long, but when they are laced up the wrist protection is very good on the long cuff.

Another guy at my gym that buys a lot of gloves tried mine after grants, imfs, and the $200 dollar everlasts, and bought the same pair i have. He seemed to think they are great as well.

Hope that helps.

You really shouldn't use the same gloves for bagwork and sparring because hitting the pads/bags with wear down the padding which means there will be less protection for your sparring partner. Also, sparring gloves are softer than bag gloves, so there will be less protection for your hands when you're hitting the bag.

But if you insist, go with 16's.

16oz would be good. thats good that you want to use them for bag and mitt work as well as sparring because youll get adjusted to them and wont wear your arms down as much. i used to train with 12oz bag gloves and sparr with 16s. now i train and sparr with 16s and noticed a huge help. it actually wouldnt hurt to get 18oz bag gloves and sparr with 16s.

I love rival gloves, i own a pair of bag gloves and a pair of sparring gloves.

Like ScottDBA said, don't use the same gloves for bag work and sparring, if you look on the rival site bag gloves and sparring gloves are very different. You can't use sparring gloves on the bag cause you will destroy them pretty fast and i don't suggest using bag gloves sparring cause you can hurt your sparring partners, bag gloves have much harder padding.
