    yes, and then for hearing, you use your big bubble gum ears.

    edit: ****, found this thread via search for headgear recommendations and didn't notice it was strikeistan. ****.

    I don't have big bubblegum ears.

    My ears have atrophied from not listening to anyone.

    Holy god even with the dead links this needs to be stickied. I'm in the same position as one of the OPs (getting rest of karate dojo to do headshots) and the links were invaluable.

    I've personally hated every piece of Top-Ten gear I have ever picked up. I wouldn't wear the rubberized Top-Ten head gear in hard sparring. I was forced to wear it at an amateur event where they wanted everyone using the same headgear and I thought it was terrible. Only good for preventing cuts. In the gym I want more concussive protection.

    Hello,

    I'm looking for head gear and I have a few that I liked pretty good:

    http://www.ringside.com/detail.aspx?ID=25837

    http://www.ringside.com/detail.aspx?ID=25825

    The last one is recommended very well on the site but I was wondering about the others.

    The issue I'm having is finding a size for my wife. She is tiny (5'2'' size 1) and most of the headgear we find goes down to regular size.

    WHAAAT??!!! I have the Avantegarde model and it's far superior to others that I've tried. Are you sure it was TOP TEN and not some immitation? I've tried a few immitations put out by companies and those didn't absorb the shock at all, it was like I wasn't wearing head gear at all. But anyway TOP TEN also has a leather model which is actually pretty nice, it's got suede lining the inside.

    There's also Winning. They probably have the most expensive gear on the planet but there's nothing better.

    Now that I look at their website I wore the competition model not the Avantegarde. Both appear to be freakishly overpriced. I've had a Fight Gear that cost half as much for over 6 years and it is still in great shape.

    I need new gear and the ablity to stay on while grappling, although infrequent, would be a plus. I'm considering these two and I'm leaning towards the rival due to the fit.

    I think you should try on your buddies headgear and some around the gym before committing to one to make sure the fit is good for your head shape and proportions.
