Bottom Line
Winning found a way to design and create the most perfect glove. From the beautiful look to the incredible performance these gloves really are just perfection. There is no glove that will protect your hand better than a Winning and there is also no glove that will give you this much comfort. The striking surface is very compact and the light weight makes it so you can really whip your punches. To say the least though these a very good gloves for the price. Their performance, quality, almost everything justifies the price and you really won't be disappointed if you try them out. In short conclusion my favorite pair of bag gloves thus far is definitely the Title Gel V2T. They offer the best amount of comfort and protection from intense and long periods. And in my opinion offer the best bang for your buck for any glove that is currently on the market. Ringside Apex Flash Sparring gloves are a good choice of boxing glove as they offer good support, protection and comfort. They are durable and long lasting. Apex Sparring gloves are perfect for all round use whether its bag work, sparring or padwork. The use of IMF padding technology gives this glove a unique feel and protection.
