as I ve been scrambling around looking for a new lhp as my monarch GCP 01 gently falls apart I bought a Mercian tommy Alexander range from a fellow forum member. It arrived and appeared brand new. It’s light and thin. Used it in training and held up ok to the heavy hits. Bad points , rebound not all that , palm grip isn’t great. Just feels a bit weak and flimsy after using the huge monarch range also didn’t feel “tight” fitting although I have too admit I don’t tend too wear inner gloves. Maybe with Pinner moving too Mercian there maybe a more bulky model on offer that will suit me better. Oh and on sale on eBay unless I ve done my own legs !!!!!!!
