Let's change that. Post your gear/supplements/etc., shoot the shit, ask questions, make fun of Everlast.

If you're actually training you ought to invest in some higher quality gear, it'll last longer than the crap you buy in a sports authority/big 5
>Implying everlast isn't the top brand
I love you edgy cunts. You buy unknown brands because you think it's cool to have someone say "wow what k8nd of gloves are thoughs"
Everlast has been around since 1910 and has been used by professionals since. The company was recently rated number one in mma gear five mother fucking times!
Agreed, the Everlast gloves are shit (can't speak for their more expensive products yet) so I got a pair of their Muay Thai gloves and shin guards in the mail. As for my Combat Sports gloves they're pretty decent. I ordered the red pair pictured and one of the gloves came almost ripped in half somehow so CS sent me the blue pair for free. They broke in nicely and have lasted almost a year with no problems but I may opt for something a little nicer soon.
I was at a sports store the other day, some chain store, and I saw a pair of UFC gloves ("competition grade") like those for $50.
That was ridiculous, they were $30 at some other chain store a in a different city.
>What do I look for in hand wraps?
You're gonna want 180 inch wraps unless you literally have baby hands, about 90% of people prefer elastic (Mexican) over traditional non-stretch, and you want a good velcro strap and thumb loop or they'll rip apart at the ends.
>What are some recommended wraps?
What I just described from any of the decent boxing/mma brands. My personal favorite are the hayabusa perfect stretch. Always, under all circumstances avoid those weird elastic neoprene, thin gel undergloves things that are sold as 'handwraps'
>What's a decent "good enough" guard I can get for now?
Brain pad and shock doctor are the go to for me and I believe you can one fairly cheap there too. If you want something real cheap go for the TapouT mouth guards, they're like $8 a piece. You cal also get decent cups from shock doctor for under $20 but underwear to go with it are pricey.
I have a $30 shock doctor and I love it. If I actually end up going pro (highly unlikely, too old and bad) I might buy a custom one.
I'm a pretty big Title whore so I'm just going to link you here.
Hey /asp/ I'm about to transition to Muay Thai from boxing, and I wanna know what gloves and shin pads you guys would recommend. I'm leaning towards the Everlast Muay Thai gear because I'm familiar with the brand but I'm sure there's something better out there.
