    Top Contender Shin Guards

    I'm interested in getting some Top Contender shin guards and I'm wondering how the quality is and if they're worth buying. Right now they're on sale for about 18 bucks and I'm thinking of buying it because I'm on a tight budget but I just want to make sure I'm not wasting my money. If anyone can give me some feedback on this it'd be greatly appreciated.

    Dunno whether Top Contender makes more than one type.

    If they're the ones I've borrowed, 18 bucks would be a very good buy. Full leather, good padding, strong stitching for the straps.

    Who's selling them at that price?

    Hey my old gym used to use them back when I was doing Shootfighting and they were awesome. But as strong as billy sol hurok thinks the stitching on the straps are I didn't think the straps were all that great, they kinda sucked cuz they moved even if you had them on tight (aka...they loosened up)

    I have a pair of top contender shin pads and they're the most confortable shin pads I've ever worn. They're a bit light on the padding though(which I like, you may not). Mine having been falling apart a bit, but I've been using them for about a year and they're still plenty useable. The straps are also easier than a lot of shin pads to fasten and tighten (I've not really noticed the loosening problem mentioned above in mine).

    My chi fell down the back of the sofa, hence the need for shinguards.
