Hello everyone! First post, new to the forums; glad to be a part of a great online community of mma fans.
Not having done a thorough search of this section of the forums, I'd like to get everyone's two cents on comparing (inexpensive) MMA sparring/training gloves for which I plan to plunk my hard earned money.
There are two gloves that I have in mind - the first one, Century's Gold Training gloves, comes out to about $30 ish bucks through my gym (hurray wholesale prices!). I have century sparring gear, including their boxing gloves, headgear, and shin guards, and they've lasted a long time and treated me well (confortable, durable, etc.). So, good experience with their non-crappy generic stuff:
The second pair is Title's Classic Ultra Training Gloves. Cheap, apparently has the distribution of a boxing glove, and for the price, seems to be of good quality from online reviews:
The things I'm looking for in the gloves:
-Ease in grappling and transitions to grappling while sparring (yes, the above aren't grapping gloves, I know, but still - the easier it is to grapple with these gloves, the better).
-Durability - will it last a few years of sparring?
-Safety in sparring (which one has more padding for safety)
-Ease in sparring (which one is least cumbersome or bulky?)
