The great thing about these things is that the pads stay in place when you take nasty dives into the snake. They don't seem like they fit tight since the bicep strap and forearm strap do not secure very well, but after playing, I haven't had one problem with them moving. I know a lot of people (including myself at one time) thought that elbow pads would hinder your game but I found it actually helped to stabilize my shooting by putting a slight resistance when you bring your gun up. I should also mention that I never bring home sore elbows after a good practice.
It's a great product for a small amount of money. I give it a 9 because the Velcro could adjust a little tighter for that extra security, although it isn't really needed.
