    I like the velcro over buckles because they're easier to switch with your partner if you do a lot of that sort of thing (my sifu had us switch pads often; I always thought it was a better idea to switch pads less often).

    I asked the guy for pictures of both pads (he was really patient with me), and the Thaismai ones actually look better constructed - 6 handle rivets vs. 4, for example - and they have a slight curve to them. For $75 I figure I'll try them. Even better, apparently while I was e-mailing him he was unpacking a box so he said he'd throw in a pair of Thaismai shorts, too.
    Folks, my Thaismai pads arrived today. The dimensions on the website are accurate. I put one of them on my scale and it weighs 3 lb., 9 oz. I put an older medium Twins pad on the scale and it weights 3 lb., 1 oz. The Thaismai pad is about 1/2 in. taller (even though it's slightly curved) and maybe 1/4 in. thicker. Once I get a chance to use it I'll let you know.

    We had those at my gym. The only complaint i had was that the velcro had completely worn off of the pads after about a year, rendering them effectively useless. Keep in mind, that's a year with every day use.

    Twins or Fairtex are the best Thai pads.. Buckles of coarse... Forget velcro. Windy makes good micro mitts for boxing and elbows. And Top King makes a nice curved Thai Pad for knees. This is what we use at our place. Nak Muay Gym King of Prussia, PA...Good luck with your purchase!
