Never used them or seen them. I wouldn't exactly say they are "common"

They are common among the pros because they offer the best protection. They have extra padding around the knuckle so they're perfect for fighters with hands problems. Floyd Mayweather, Erik Morales and Manny Pacquiao use them (Pac only trains with them).

Any idea which fights those guys you listed used those gloves in? I've just never seen them before, and honestly its the first I'm hearing of them.
Maybe they just use them for training?

They dont (from the picture) apear to have anywhere near the best hand protection. Especially when compared to many of the 4 layer sandwich designs, as well as gels, air-cell technologies, etc.
I guess using them is really the only true judge though.

Have you any experience with these gloves Balistik?

Floyd used these gloves against Judah and Morales used them against Barrera in their 3rd fight. Pac only trains with them to protect his hands cause he likes to fight wearing Reyes gloves. Actually I've never used them cause they're very expensive (like $200) but I'm thinking of buying them in a few years. Depends how often I will train. Here are some pics where you can see the brand (you can also see them in my avatar pic):

Wow. Excellent response, with pics and all!

I remember seeing those white gloves on Floyd in the Judah fight, but never really looked to see what brand they were.

Thanx lol. So now you see they're used by some pros. But they're the only ones who can afford them. I won't buy a pair of gloves for $200 if I can have pretty good ones for less than half the price. Well at least not right now. By the way what do you think about Everlast Pro Trainers for bag and sparring? Heard they were ok but not hard-wearing.

My buddy that boxes pro really loves the Everlast pro trainers. He likes them better than the Reyes.
I cant really give an opinion because I havent used either of those particular models yet. Although, if they get the most votes in the poll for which gloves should be the next set I review, then we'll see

New Classification of Glove

What do you think about the idea of a new classification for gloves like Ringside IMF gloves, Title Gel gloves, and (possibly) Top Ten sparring/training gloves?

These gloves have very special foam that holds up well to extended use and doesn't break down quickly.
This durability makes them still acceptable for sparring; as long as common sense is used in recognizing when the padding is beginning to fail.

Another brand I see used often but not mentioned much is Top Contender, between 16 and 20 ounces, I've even seen these gloves used by pros. I can only vouch for getting hit by them- i prefer to get hit by them than any weight of glove in the Everlast "high performance" line (guy was sparring me last night with the 12 ounce aerobic ones; NO WONDER my nose started bleeding).

Winning gloves are one of the last few on my wish list and probably the last gloves I'll buy - I think they're $250 now.

Everlast professional gloves have a very comfortable pocket. Used to have a pair of 18oz professional training gloves from everlast. The only problem I had with them was the fill. Punching with them on would sound like air being squeezed out of a water raft with a hole in it (feel like that too). After a little while there was what I can only assume was "synthetic horse hair" that started coming through the pocket of the glove. These little, black, pieces of plastic string would be poking my hands. I'd pull one out and the next time 2 more would start poking. Gave 'em to a buddy who absolutely adored them.
