When added to the rather high natural H2H delay at this level, the bonus in speed of using claw type weapons is minimal at best.

At 31 MNK has Martial Arts III (MA3). With MA3 the base H2H delay is 360.

Impact Knuckles: 380+86 = 462, 7.7 seconds between rounds.
Claws +1: 380+61 = 441, 7.35 seconds between rounds.

Adding in H2H base delay, faster weapons really aren't all that much faster. The acc+3 and STR+1 bonuses on the Impact Knuckles put them ahead in my opinion. Also, on my server Impact Knuckles are incredibly cheap, being the "junk" drop of Mee Deggi.

It is nice that you can equip these a couple levels earlier though, and Puppetmasters do not have access to Knuckle class weapons (aside from Scogan's knuckles). For PUP these are good to 33, then switch to Katars +1 unless you've got money to blow on pumps to feed Hydro Claws +1.
Good Substitute

My first Character (MNK retired at lvl 40, I stopped sharing an account)I had used these when he hit lvl 30. Basically it comes down to price. Impact knuckles are better because of the +3 ACC (every hit counts, as does every miss) and +1 STR (when it comes to Damage, every lil bit counts). The Claws +1, are an excellent substitute if you haven't the money to get the Impact Knuckles.

Just because you can't have all the best stuff, doesn't mean you can't be the best at what you do.
Impacts > claws

Impacts > claws +1. Impacts give +1 str and +3 acc, claws give a tiny, tiny speed increase. That possible extra hit a fight would be outweighed by the miss you'd have because of lacking that +3 acc. On top of that it gives str +1, which modifys all of MNK's WS.
wouldn't say their better

On phoenix the impact knuckles are averaging 4k they are one of the cheapest weapons I have bought. The +3 acc is great but the +1 str also makes a difference. The delay is lower on the claws and the damage is the same but since these are +1 I am going to assume 8-10k atleast for them.

I agree actually, these claws are better then the Impact Knuckles, although I will take in consideration of the price, I need to check to see which is cheaper. ^^

***** impact, the delay on the claws +1 is so much better, yea the impact knuckles may have a +3 acc, but with mnks focus, you get acc from that, so i don't see the need for the that little +3 acc, and the damage is that same, i say go claws and not knuckles
better then impact knuckes

No. Impacts> These. Normally they are cheaper as well, so if you can get these, there is no excuse.
