If there is a glove I highly recommend purchasing, it’s this one.

They also feature an evolution cut, a new wrist band area, breathable mesh, and a striking design for this summer’s hottest tournament.
While the Black Mamba V7 is a more affordable model in Aviata’s glove range, it comes equipped with features that have trickled down from the top models and is best suited for intermediate players. Some of these features include a flat cut, a 3D breathable mesh body, a double wrap wrist strap, a latex wrapped thumb, and a punch guard pad.
