After slipping and bashing my elbow into the ground moving to the next bunker causing quite a bit of blood, I decided it was time for a set of pads. Went with these bacause of the reviews here. After receiving them, I played the next day. sliding into the snake is not an issue anymore and bounces were happening all the time. they stay tight to the arm. I was a ittle concerned with how tight they were around the hand (i have really big hands) but a second after the break, I didn't even notice it. I would recommend these to anyone, the price is right too!!
One of my biggest concerns was how they fit when I was ordering them on-line. for those who are wondering about size, I am 6'1", 180lbs and I have 14.5 inch biceps, I got the large and they fit perfect. there just needs to be a little break in period.
Like I said, great fit, great bounce, and built to keep you from bleeding...
