The right knee pads

I play about 70% woodsball and 30% speedball. I need some knee pads that will protect my knees from rocks/roots when im playing. But something that wont compromise my mobility/comfort. I was looking the NXE pads, but they look like they would stick to the ground while im sliding or something.
Im looking for knee pads right now, eventually when i want to cough up like 80 bucks, i can buy some pants with knee padding already built into them.
Thanks

Dye C8s maybe, unless you're wearing them outside of your pants. Then I would hit up the army surplus store and find the ones with plastic on the front.

I'd stick to the softer knee pads. Hard ones won't be as comfortable.

and you can bet your salary that a ball will break on those army surplus ones. i mean they are made to army standards. the army uses guns. so they gotta be hard as crazy. You have a chance of a bounce with the soft knee pads. I use the proto knee pads and they are great.

Sorry, I didnt really explain myself too well. I recommend the army surplus if you play outside of the usual speedball or woods courses. The more rustic woods courses (and the urban warfare ones as well) can get pretty rough (rocks, trees, barbed wire, etc.). The urban assault ones especially, Ive seen busted brick that tears right throguh the soft pads.
