I personally wouldn't even consider looking at other pads.
I have a lot of scars on my arms from paintball. Arm pads also give you a lot more bounces than your bones will. Nothing worse than having bruises that look like ring-worm lol.
dye pads are top notch, been using them for years. can't say i've had to much experience with empire pads, last time i had empire elbow pads was back in 2005
