Ring to Cage
Review by Aaron Wayne-Duke
Ring to Cage Hybrid Training Glove
Ideal for both training and competition with open palms and weighing 6oz. Thumb and palm are made of neoprene for extra comfort. Extra wide velcro wrist strap for extra support. Lightweight but thick padding often not found in hybrid training gloves. Made of genuine leather.
PrimeTime Level 4 7 oz Training Glove
This MMA Glove is sanctioned by WKA, KICK Int’l, Thailand Sports Commission and State Boxing Commissions around the USA. Side note-WWE Superstar The Undertaker wears these gloves regularly during his professional wrestling matches and these gloves can be seen in the movie “Never Back Down”.
I own both and have put them to the test. Primetime has been in the game longer and their construction and quality shows. Mark Wodika and his team have the added advantage of the Combat Pad ™ padding that is a favorite on the MMA circuit. Ring to Cage offers a nice glove at a slightly lower price so if your budget is tight Ring to Cage is still a quality choice. The only complaint with Ring to Cage was that the elastic wore out quickly (less than 3 months).
Most bang for the buck = Primetime Fight Gear's Level 4 7oz Training Glove. You can buy cheaper gloves but your hands and pocket will eventually pay the price. The $20.00 “training” gloves being marketed to UFC fans at retailers like Kmart and Hibbets will last as long as the flavor in your bubble gum.
