Are the Imf's a more protective glove?... Cuz that's what I'm lookin for... Safety for my hands.

-Thx, Peace
They have a nice tight, firm hand pocket and great wrist support imo, but their not pillow gloves by any means...

forget the bag gloves, just buy training gloves.

i wear a 108" handwraps on top of my knuckles + 180" wrap mostly for my wrist + bag gloves...i still have to hold back so i don't hurt myself.

nsblife, is their 16 oz enormous? i don't want it to be too bulky.

I had their 18oz and they were ULTRA protective. No they werent very bulky. Yes, noticeably larger than say, a 12 ounce glove, but not puffy and blown up. They are extremely well put together and they are both comfotable and supportive. If you have hand problems, step up to the next weight size. IE- if you normally use 14oz gloves, go with 16oz instead, and so on...

Well they are a little bigger than 14's but won't be 'too bulky, you'll just have more protection and get a better shoulder workout;) If your having to wear wraps on top of wraps, def. go with the 16's or larger, and like captain said if you normally use 14oz it would be wise to progressivly move up to 16, then 18:thumbsup:

Hey, Thanks for the advice... Definitely gonna keep my hands wrapped up nicely. I never even thought about double wraps. Those training gloves look nice as well. :)

-Peace.

Another option you may want to consider are the handwraps that have foam/gel lining added to give a little more knuckle protection. I believe both Title and Ringside sell them...
yea i think that'd be a good idea, the gel form fitting to my knuckles will keep em from bruising.

Replace your wraps? What kind of wraps are you currently using? The best and most beneficial are probably going to be Mexican style handwraps. I don't know anything about the gel wraps, think captain might be able to help you with that one:thumbsup:

i use mexican style wraps but one is folded into a padding just for the knuckles and the other is used to secure it.

instead of using 2 hand wraps i want to buy a knuckle protector or fist guard under my wraps. which would u recommend

Here ya go...try these
Knuckle Guard at Ringside.com

Should work like a charm with one set of mexican style handwraps and IMF's, you'll be good to go :)
