Default Re: Need new bag gloves, suggestions?

You asked me why you would lie. I have no idea. I called BS on the gloves and their padding being the source of your knuckle issues. No more. No less.

How would I know that? You think I researched you before I posted? Come on man.

If it seemed condescending? I apologize. I am big enough to do that.

Now you are just trying to make points. Assumptions based on the data provided are a part of life. You make them every day. You pay your bills assuming you will live tomorrow.

I never said the gloves hurt my knuckles or that any soreness was due to them. I also never said I ''need better protecting bag gloves,'' which would imply my soreness was due to the gloves quality. I simply asked if there were gloves out there with MORE knuckle protection that would help me. You could have simply said something like "IMF Tech are probably the best knuckle protection you'll get in that price range," or anything along those lines. End of story, that simple, and then there wouldn't be this dumb argument going on distracting from my original question. If you notice everything was going smooth with advice, and people were being more than helpful with their suggestions and tips until you popped in with your hard-on for IMF Tech that you seem to think I was attacking.
Your knuckles get sore. What sport are you doing? Boxing. Runners' feet/knees/hips get sore. Muay Thai guys' shins get sore. The assumption is that any soreness MUST be beyond the typical general soreness of the activity. This is what you said:

"My current pair has been the Ringside IMF Tech gloves and even with those my knuckles usually get sore after a couple of rounds on the bag."

Since a Boxer states his knuckles get sore AND in the same breath mentions a specific piece of equipment what do you think the conclusion drawn is? The equipment is not effective protection from the rigors of the sport.

Now YOU are making assumptions. I don't have a hard on for them. I actually recommend against them due to what I believe is a drop in build quality. However I do respect the Ringside foam quality/technology, but things change.

Yes you did man. If you read you got one glove suggestion, a few more questioning comments like mine, and wrap suggestions. Why? Because people who buy equipment are a bit surprised that the IMF Tech isn't cutting it for you.

Because you are not on the outside looking in. Read your original post. You now own the gold standard in knuckle protection for a mid range bag glove. A glove that, unlike most bag gloves, weighs in at a HEAVY (meaning it actually weighs more) 14ozs and so firm yet forgiving that they are readily used as actual sparring gloves without complaint. It isn't good enough? What is? The next option is Winning.

OK. At this point we all have to make assumptions. Either you are doing something "wrong" with your wraps (damaging your knuckles), your punches are off (eliminated because you are experienced), the bags you are using are overly hard (very likely), your punching power is off the charts (joked about), or you just have bad knuckles.

Literally all I did was ask if there are better gloves for knuckle protection since mine get sore, and instead of saying no there isn't, or just not responding, you decide to attack me and claim I'm bull****ting, sarcastically saying I should go pro if what I'm saying is true, etc. Do you not see how unnecessary that was to this thread?
Thank you man and again I really apologize if it came across that way. That was not my intention. My true intention was that the symptoms you spoke of and the gloves you were using pointed to an issue other than the actual glove. I had no intention of attacking you other than joking. I only wanted to try and draw out more information because sometimes the surface issue (sore knuckles) might have an underlying cause that the blame is misplaced. Calling BS was a joke. By your response, a poorly received one. Again, I apologize.

From where I am standing I hear a guy with a Lamborghini at a repair shop saying, "This car just doesn't have the speed I am looking for." First thing I think is to do a diagnostic on the car and go for a drive with the guy because... It is a Lambo. It can't be the car! (Although it very well could be.)

Know where I am coming from?
