Awesome but not good quality...
on January 23, 2015
These are my first mitts outside of the ones lent by gym.
Although I still don't know if there is a left and a right one, I love them!
There is no Velcro to close like on others, which is impossible to do by yourself once you have one mitt on, and is also difficult for your partner if (s)he has gloves on, so not having that, and not needing it, is just a good time saver!
A few people in my class have tried them, and all loved it, the ball inside is just what tips it to the top!
Even people that bought their own mitts, seem to prefer mine, so overall I am very happy which I didn't expect for a mid-range price.
I have only been using them for a few weeks so I cannot yet say how long they will last, but I see no sign of it dying yet at least (unlike a guy that bought an Everlast pair and had to trash it after a couple weeks).
Update: I dropped them from 5 to 2.
The reason? The black "rope" on the side of each mitt that keeps the filling in has broken on both mitts. I've been using them for maybe a month, 1-2 times a week. So as much as I love them, the quality doesn't seem there.
I sent a request to Title and we'll see how it goes (but I'm afraid that they'll ask me to pay for shipping these back, and to pay for getting newer ones shipped, which if you include the original shipping price, would be close to the mitts price...)
Depending on how that goes I will update this review.
