What do you guys think is the best equiptment for sparring (gloves, shinguards)

I got all Twins stuff, but I really like Fairtex. What does everyone else use?

all the everlast stuff I've ever seen is really bad. Mind you its usually the lower end gear that I see people sporting. Their sparring gloves look like pillows attached to gloves

I rock some fairtex, century, and primetime gloves.


Primtime gloves are probably the best I've ever used, so if you ever need new gloves, check them out.

IMO, you can't really by that bad of a pair of sparring gloves, so I'd just hit up your local sports store like Dicks or Sports Authority and pick up a pair there(usually stock Everlast/Century products), and they are good enough for me to use for sparring and bag work. BTW, Primetime is pretty expensive so I wouldn't waste my money on just buying their gloves to use for bag work.

Fairtex MMA gloves, not sure if they're the best but they are good and a lot of people like them.

Combat Sports Grappling Shinguards. They're excellent, don't know anything better.

Windy Muay Thai cup. I find steel cups more comfortable than plastic, even for grappling, and they're much better quality. I'm sure any steel cup would work.
