OK...here's the lowdown..
I did not find them more comfortable than the MMA gloves.
The velcro seemed to scratch me no matter which way I positioned the tabs.
While the knuckles were protected..there was no protection out towards the finger joints as the gloves have.
The material and the little velco tab bunch up in an odd way in the palm of the hand.
Some of this gets better with use I suspect..
I did punches, backhands, hammer fists and anything else I could think of...as hard as I could.
Up side was they gave a tiny more support to my left thumb (I am missing a joint and it hurts most of the time). It also gave passable wrist support.
I think I will stick with the Century MMA/Bag gloves. The gel wraps will go in my bag...but as backups or for the GF when we spar at home.
Rating: Two Ranger groin kicks out of four, for the gel wraps
