The Dye ones are very nice. I personally use the Sly Pro-Merc 2012 forearm and knee pads. They do not work for everybody but for me they are the best. I have also used Planet Eclipse. I prefer the Planet Eclipse forearm pads over the Dyes but I prefer the Dye knee pads over the Planet Eclipse. The Slys work better than all of them for me. Just try to find some at a local pro shop and try them on. See what feels good to you.
thanks alot guys. Dye seems to be the most liked brand for pads. does anyone have an opinion on the empire stuff or any other reccomendations? i want to make a good decision so i dont ahve to keep buying badly made pads
