If you don't get the JR's the Teknic's are great. I just shifted from JR to them and just love the gloves. The construction, materials and quality of workmanship is super. There is a big improvement in the gauntlet and knuckle area. Overall they are better than the JR's. The olnly thing the JR's were better at was feel. They used a thinner leather in the palms and fingers. Oh, my JR's were vintage 2001 so I know there are improvements in the 2003 gloves. Anyway, I would buy them again in a heartbeat.
There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
