- Good all-around Thai style glove, but not the same as it was
Having owned and used these gloves, I will say that they are good, but the newer gloves seem to skimp on quality.
I originally bought the 16oz black (with red white grey thumb) and it immediately became my go-to glove for bag and pad work. It had a "locked thumb" in which the thumb is attached at the web, and it made for a very comfortable closed fist.
A couple years later, I ordered the white pair (also 16oz.) and noticed some differences:
The padding is much softer and more like a pillow. Honestly, your sparring partner may appreciate the new model, if you aren't trying to take his/her head off. The folds on the side of the glove are uneven and sloppy looking and the stitching is a little wobbly. Not representative of typical Thai quality. Also, they changed to an attached thumb, from a locked thumb. Which may not affect everybody, but if you're used to one or the other, you'll notice.
Both the old and new versions of this glove are very roomy. if you don't wrap, you'll slide around inside the glove. Evenly distributed padding. Decent wrist support and good palm padding. The Skintex (synthetic) leather is soft, but very tough. The screen printed design holds up and stays new-looking.
I still think this is a good glove for bag work and light sparring, (and I think Venum is a great company!) much higher quality material and construction than their Contender model. That being said: if you're looking for an entry level glove (Venum Contender), or a fitness glove (Ringside Apex Bag), there are better options for less money.
