Wear and Tear
When I first started playing speedball, I bought some Angel kneepads to give a little padding. They didn't last very long, as the stiching came out. All the other pads I could find where really expensive, so I picked up a pair of these Redz Knee Padz to try out.
Protection: I've played on grass, turf, carpet and concrete, and these pads protect on them all. I play snake alot and I'm usually on my knees, but these are like kneeling on pillows.
Price: I only payed $50 Canadian for my Redz pads, compared to $80 for Dye or Angel ones. Thats quite a good deal.
Wear and Tear: I've been wearing these pads for 6 months, and abusing them quite a bit. They are barely showing any wear at all: no rips, but one of the Redz logo's came off. Thats pretty good.
Velcro: The velcro dosen't quite keep them on when I slide, so I have to use hockey tape to keep them on for sure.
Comfort: Tend to feel a little more bulky than the other pads I've tried on.
Overall, these are good, solid knee pads for the money. They hold up extremely well, protect very well, and don't wear at all. The weaknesses are all minor things. I suggest them definatley over most other knee pads on the market.
