I have used the Fairtex MMA Sparring Gloves for over a month, initially they felt a little stiff, however after 2-3 sessions of using them the gloves softened up and are now very comfortable. The padding is very good for training. It is dome shaped but unlike other dome shaped gloves, the shape is designed well in order that does not interfere with grips and are more compact but offer the same if not better level of cushion, resulting in less damage to sparring partners.
The padding of the Fairtex MMA Sparring Gloves covers slightly passed the knuckles over part of the fingers which reduces the injuries from miss-connections. The gloves are made very well and the material is very durable. After over a month of hard use they still appear brand new with no sign of wear and tear and I am confident that these gloves will last a long time. The only minor criticism I can give for the Fairtex MMA Sparring Gloves is that they do not offer as much wrist support as others i have used. However, this is personal preference as some people prefer the flexibility at the wrist, or a good hand wrap underneath can easily solve this problem. All in all, these are very good gloves which I would recommend and a pair that you will not be dissappointed in.
