Got the Evo ones in Red in XL if they are of interest to you.
The last Throwdown MMA shin pads were great I am also waiting for the new ones to come out.
I use Fairtex too they are pretty hard wearing, not tried any of the other brands.
I have worn all kinds of shorts for training from sprawls, fcf, tapout, warrior wear and honestly couldnt tell the difference in any of them.
Am I wierd ? To me its like comparing adidas trackies to nike ones or whatever, shorts are shorts to me and I dont even think about them when I'm training. I have never once stopped in the middle of a training session and thought ' jeez these shorts feel good ' or vice versa.
I have also just realised that this thread is about shin pads.
I am a prize nob, however my comment regarding shorts still stands.
If you need a friend, get a dog !
