If you're talking about the RS2V pro sparring gloves, I have them in 16oz and use them for sparring a ton. I got mine through titlemma.com and they are not worn at all not even after a good amount of use. They were $120 on sale for $99. Yes they are real leather. Mine are great, just takes a little getting used to the ergonomic strap but it secures the wrist great. Where did you get them? If you'renot happy w/ them most companies are good about exchanging or replacing the product.

i really like them but **** i was going to buy them there, then ordered all my new gear from my local academy and they raped me on prices, i contacted a guy from ebay that had a shop and said if i bought all i would get a discount and yea pricing was great(around 70 on savings), but **** here there was 3 weeks to get + tax + retail (not a ******* penny discounted and bought over 400 ) never will buy here again learned my lesson.
Should i say something? well why ? so i be the "dick"? i like to support local shop and stuff but this was ridiculows i paid around 77 for a pair of mma gel bag gloves wtf?

I'm not sure where you're located but title is awesome about fast shipping. I write reviews on everything I get here is mine for titlemma: http://www.mmaforum.com/gear-equipme...-out-10-a.html You might inform them that they are not pricing things competatively. As far as ebay I would be careful about getting knock offs. The sad irony would be that the local shop orders them from an ebay store and they are knockoffs Maybe bring up any concerns you may have. If you're anywhere near Dayton Ohio I would glady let you compare to mine to check material etc.

I understand about supporting local shops. The gym I train at and even helped build has a pro shop, but they don't have mexican weave handwraps so I end up ordering mine. I just find other ways to support it.
