Elbow pads are a must!
Hey guys. I just went to the field this weekend and had a pretty bad experience. It was my first tine trying this new field, it was a turf field and im used to playing on turf. I wore short sleeves because I don't have a jersey yet and it was hot. My first game out i superman dive into snake (100% correctly). I felt the burn on my elbows but I ignored it, im used to getting turf burn from baseball. At the end of the game a player asked if my elbow was bleeding, I look down to find my entire arm covered in blood. I washed it off and bought myself a nice pair of planet eclipse overload elbow pads for $40.99.
These are nice pads for the price. They have the thumb hole so they wont slide up. They breathe very nice and have great padding and coverage. Best of all their super comfortable.
Moral of the story. If your a front player and slide a lot and you dont have a jersey or it doesnt have good padding, BUY ELBOW PADS.
If you want me to I can post pictures of my battle wounds.
Have a nice day everyone.
