Lack of padding coverage between elbow and arm.
When I purchased these pads of off Action Village i was shocked by the low price, one of the main reasons of why i bought these. Once they arrived i removed them from the package, slid them on my arms and whacked my arm against the wall. this is a good test for elbow pads. i barely felt an impact and there was no pain at all. That night i went around the neighborhood and did superman dives in peoples yards. The elbow pads absorbed almost all impact. The next day i used them at the field and i have to admit its nice to be able to dive into a bunker without worrying about your arms getting torn up, snake crawling was also made easier by these pads. Later that day i played woods and was able to slide into a tree holding my arm out and stop myself with little pain. however.. when small rocks get in between the arm/ elbow large pads they can hurt a little more than usual. I also got quite a few bounces on these babies. they are a bit more flexible than other pads i have used (ie. proto, dye, planet eclipse) due to the 2 pad design instead of one long pad
If you need some good, cheap, flexible elbow pads get these, but if u are looking for a little more protection, its better to shell out the money for some dye/proto/eclipse pads. Ill give these a 9 b/c of the price, reliablility, and protection
