Default Pro Mex training gloves?

Anyone ever use these? I've been looking at them on title-boxing. Looking to get them in red 16oz, hook and loop version. I saw a video review for them on ratethisgear.com, and the guy doing the review said they are VERY hard. Are they a good training glove for hitting the bag and mitts? Or should I go with something else?

In my experience, the gloves were not that great. I have larger hands, and my fingers protruded through the end of the glove. They were too tight, and just very uncomfortable. For people with smaller hands, maybe.

I considered buying this glove at one time. From the reviews that I read, I found out that many considered these the "poor man's Reyes" with very little padding. However because of previous hand issues, I decided to go with another glove that provided excellent protection (Fairtex).
