The ones that fit you the best. Try some on at an event or a local pro shop.

Look at your comment. Back to mine. Back to yours NOW BACK TO MINE. Sadly, it isn't mine. But if you stopped trolling and started posting legitimate crap it could LOOK like mine. Look down, back up, where are you? You're scrolling through the comments, finding the ones that your comment could look like. Back at mine, what is it? It's a highly effective counter-troll. Look again, MY COMMENT IS NOW DIAMONDS.

Pretty much. I have had great luck with planet eclipse though. They have held up quite a long time, I am just now looking for a new pair. I have tried dye and empire, but they just don't fit me well like the eclipse ones.

I'm in the market for some new pads myself. Still looking, but best bet is to get to a local shop or large event and try on all the different elbow pads to see which offer the most mobility and comfort for you.

Agree ^^^^^ with all guys above. Go to your local PB store and try them on. I tried PE, Valken and Dye. I have long arms. I went with the Dye. For me they fit the best and I thought they had the best padding

I'm a big fan of dye, there built to last. Just bought a new pair of knee pads after 7 years with the original.

Dye core arm pads are really good had mine for a few months and first time out I got a few bounces off of them

I like my PE arm pads. they aren't too great if you wear gloves though.

Try them on. Both Planet Eclipse and Dye are durable. I just replaced my Planet Eclipse elbow pads after 5 years with Dye arm pads. The Dye ones do feel more durable, but fit a lot tighter than the Eclipse ones.
