Dude I just got my shipment from Ringside... Damn it is disappointing. Seriously, they are no longer a quality equipment supplier. My list was:

-- 18oz IMF Tech Sparring gloves
-- 16oz Throw Down bag gloves (copies of 14oz IMF Techs)
-- Adidas response shoes
-- Ringside visor

The only thing I plan to keep out of the ENTIRE order is the visor and Adidas. That crap is SAD!

Honestly with all the crap gloves coming out from Boxing brands it is hard to recommend anything. Made in China Ringside used to be my favorite with price to value. They are 100% made in P-a-k-i-stan garbage now.

I am going to have to search Title or a Muay Thai brand. So far the only gloves that I have seen that are worth a damn and of a decent price are Muay Thai.

Also, though I know it is blasphemy, look into the Muay Thai brands. I am talking HIGH quality for your money. (>$80)

A buddy of mine just got some Raja gloves and I checked them out. Beautiful construction, quality glossy leather, and highly customizable (colors). To my surprise, the hand compartment fit perfectly for Boxing.

The only downfall I saw was that the gloves seem to have fairly flexible/soft padding (for opening the hand and grabbing) as compared to my IMF Techs (Circa 2009). Working on a bag, I am not sure how they will hold up over the years, but that might be nice for catching. My gym has quite a few pairs that still look good though I have yet to hit the bags with them. I will be doing that soon though because I am returning all of this Ringside JUNK!

With the Reyes being sold at Ringside, I would be REALLY careful they weren't just rebranded junk. The Throwdown gloves I bought were just IMF Techs.

I don't know how to do that but they are G/S 16oz gloves-black with velcro straps-the wrist is silver color with G/S in black letters.

In my opinion they are better then ringside/everlast by a mile.Never had cleto reyes so can't comment.

G/S is a small company that is overlooked but if you look back in the day everyone used to use them.

G & S is very solid. there's a g & s store around my gym and i know a few people who have bought the gloves. they all seem satisfied with them and the prices aren't bad at all.
