thai ones are expensive because they last forever, i like the sandee ones
back on track: i have these ones
in white, with red dragon.
i got the red twins spider gloves but cant find the shin pads to go with them.
This is the pair i got and you can get them with other Top King stuff here http://www.fightstuff.uk.com/
First had some of the white cheapo pull on jobs. Lasted me ages and made my shins pretty tough since they are so thin. Used Sandee after that and had the problem of them digging in at my ankle. Tried blitz because they were cheap. Weren't bad in terms of quality but were a bad fit for me as i've got really long skinny shins/calfs. Just got a pair of Hayabusa as only used the others for Muay Thai. The Hayabusa are by far the best. Comfy, good fit, good ventilation, really light and good protection.
I swayed about whether to spend the extra on Hayabusa for ages and decided at the end of the day it was only about £10 difference. I know if I hadn't spent that little bit extra I would be always wishing I had.
The thai stuff lasts forever so go with one of those brands
yeah thai ones do last forever as everyone has stated but there not that great if your competing in amatuer i.e no head shot comps?
