Piranha G3 E-Force with CP drop and asa, 14" Xcel Barrel, PE 48 3000 hpa tank, Halo B
Very solid product, really holds up against the rigors of the sport. Great for sliding.
Too bulky, they really restrict movement. Velcro straps tend to deteriorate.
These pads are good for Mid- to Back- players that don't have to hit the 50 on the break. The rail system is clever, but the rails are actually too short, thus restricting full range of motion. The velcro straps do tend to wear out after about 3 months, plan on replacing them. Great for sliding on both smooth and rough terrain. Slid just as far on concrete as I did on sand. The adjustable inner-pads help to take pressure off weak spots if you have them, but the entire pad seems to move around making the inner-pads useless.
This product does have it's strengths and weaknesses, but is better than both the Dye, and the Redz knee pads. I wouldn't take them over the Raven or '02 JT Skinz.
4 out of 10
