In an effort to grow our Equipment Reviews section, I've decided to do something totally outlandish: not be a cheap penny pinching mofo. What does that mean for you, you ask? You will all have a chance to win some cool BoxingForum.com gear from our store!
Yeah, I know what some of you are thinking..."We have an equipment reviews section??" and shame on you for not noticing already
. BUT, it now has been given its own forum home for all to see and its time to get it kickstarted. We all know that we have the best, most knowledgeable boxing fans on the net... but we also have a ton of guys out there that also train and box themselves. Most of us have strapped on a pair of gloves at one time or another and now its time to cash in on it. What I'm looking for are reviews on bag gloves, training gloves, heavy bags, speedbags, handwraps, gym timers, etc. Basically, if you've got some experience with some equipment and want to take a few minutes to write a review that might help out your fellow board members, you may just end up getting something cool yourself!
We currently have a few reviews up and I feel we have a pretty good format to go by when writing reviews. A picture of the gear helps but is not mandatory. Description, your thoughts, your rating, etc. should all be included. Here is an example that you can use as a sort of "template" to go by:
For each review posted between Friday December 5th 2008 and Thursday January 15th 2009 12:00pm EST, you will have one ticket with your name on it placed into the drawing. This means that if you write 1 review you will have one ticket, if you write 5 reviews you get 5 tickets, increasing your chances to win. The drawing will take place on Saturday, January 17th 2009 and the winner(s) will be notified via PM and through a stickied "Drawing Winners" thread.
There will be one guaranteed grand prize winner which will get a choice of one item currently in our store (valued up to $40).
Depending on the number of entries, I will also have some other various prizes for runners-up.
Where to post the reviews:
Note: Staff will not be included in the drawing. The prizes will be for our members only! Entries will only be accepted by registered members of BoxingForum.com. This will exclude any members who's accounts are suspended and are therefore, unable to participate.
