To be honest, my first thought was “what can I say about focus mitts“. After all a focus mitt is a focus mitt, they are not complicated pieces of equipment and as long as they can withstand the impact then they do their job!
However, Keith and I gave them a good thrashing to test them out and we both found something that we liked. For me, it was the Velcro strap at the back to secure the pad to the wrist. I usually find with focus mitts that when they get hit hard they tend to slip off and I’m almost “clawing” with finger-tips to keep them in place. With the strap secured tightly around the wrist, this was very much reduced. Simple but effective.
For Keith, he liked that fact that there was no little patch sown into the center of the striking surface, which sometimes splits the skin.
Only time will tell if they are durable, but they seemed tough enough. Overall, we liked them and would be happy to recommend them. Just click on the image to go their website.
