I bought these pads a few days ago, and they are great. When I first put them on and headed out to a game, I got so many bounces out of them, and when I slid and dove, I hardly felt a thing. These pads protect great. My only complaint on them was that the very first day I got them, the stitching on the pad on my elbow ripped. I had to break out a sewing kit to fix it. I think its ridiculous that elbow pads for 50 dollars designed for a brutal sport would hold up better.
