Default Gloves needed

Hi all i know this is a common question and i have used the search before someone says. My 16oz lonsdales are getting fairly worn now and have done the job well but i fancy a new pair. I want something with plenty of of support and hand protection. as far as im concerned the more the better. Iv been looking particularly at rival so thoughts on these and any other suggestions please!

Do you have the molded foam lonsdales? If not, maybe try them out, because I love them.

Can't beat Winning for protection and hand support, but they're expensive like whoa.

Ringside IMF Tech are similar in shape/size to the Lonsdales, so they might be a good buy. They also last forever from what I understand. Winning are great if you've got 200-300 bucks to throw around.

I've got bad knuckles, and the Lonsdales are the first gloves I've used that actually protect my knuckles from going through and getting sore. And that's WITHOUT handwraps underneath them, so for protection I think they're top notch. If the IMF Techs are similar in feel (I've seen them, never tried them on) then they might be worth a try. Unlike Lonsdales, they're well made and have a reputation for durability.

Title Gel gloves I've heard are good for knuckle protection, but I've used them and in my opinion the Lonsdales are better, and the Gels offer NO wrist support whatsoever.

Reyes/Pro Mex/etc. are not going to protect your hands very much, and your sparring partners will hate you.
