They slide on easy, extremely comfortable and don't need to be broken in like other pads. Straight out of the box, they are ready to get beaten up. For how long they last, they are most definitely worth it.

Planet Eclipse Distortion Elbow Pads I have both the 07 and 08 pads and both are great! The only thing that wasn't up to Eclipse par with that the 08 pads don't come in a SM/MD so I had to order larges in the 08s. Other than that...

Ever since buying these arm pads in 2006, i've used them everytime i've played and have had no problems with them. the best thing about these arm pads is the hole for to put your thumb through, making sure that these pads never slip out of place from your elbow.

I have used distortion pads for almost the whole last season. You can throw them in your washer. They have to be the least noticeable pads you can buy, not itchy or scratchy! They can also replace annoying gloves, and offer high wrist protection! They also aren't very expensive, yes 32.00$ isn't cheap but cheaper then some. My only thing is ageist them is if you were to use the system all year long you might go threw 2-3 pair I know I will in 08. Reason being because they are very comfy and arnt built super strong....


but if your looking for some good forarm pads, well here ya go

This is going to be a short, and sweet review.

I have used the eclipse pads for a longg time, for reffing, playing, and yeah. So the pads have an amazingly thick and strong material, which will take all the pain away from dives, shots, and you will get many many bounces.

They never rip, never deform, and are awesome.

So GET EM!

I have used a pair of these pads for about a year now, and I would highly recommend them. I play snake, and dive after dive they've provided great padding and haven't torn or ripped at all.

The advantages to these elbow pads over other pads I've had is that they have a loop to go around your thumb to keep them in place. I'm not sure if these are the first pads to use this, but most of the other pads I have had just ended up sliding up my arm. Also the padding itself hasn't lost shape or become mushy.

Overall I would say these are some of the best pads on the market right now. The only negative is that the white portion of the pad stains easily, but most people wear a jersey over their pads so this isn't a big deal.

Pros: Great looks, good value, comfortable
Cons: Stain rather easily
After a while of playing paintball, I decided I could really use some elbow pads, as I was coming home with bruises on my elbows from diving a lot. After a good amount of research, I decided to buy the Planet Eclipse 07 Distortion Elbow pads (black).

So far I have only used them in a couple games, but they have worked excellent.

Comfort:
These arm pads are very comfortable, and I have not been disappointed by them. They will not slide around on your arm when you are wearing them, and offer a good amount of protection. They vent rather well too. On a side note, they look great too.

The 1 and only con I can find:
The only con I can find, is that they stain rather easily with most all paints. But really no need to worry, they still look awesome when you wear the.

Value and my recommendations:
If you buy these pads, you will be happy your money was not spent on others. There are others that are more expensive, and there are others that are less expensive. Either way, I recommend the Distortion elbow pads to anyone who asks about buying pads.
