opinions on what brands are worth getting, I see PD, pro tec, and a few other brands.

Havent owned pads since the 80's, whats good nowadays and what is a waste of money?

pro designed are a bit pricey, but they cost less than a new knee. ive taken some ugly slams but have been able to walk away from because of PD's

Same here, satisfied ProDesigned customer. But I'm hearing good things about Pain Cheaters.

Thanks for the input all.

I was scoping out PD's for a bit now, I really need some hip pads, this morning I went to their site and priced em up with shipping, they want more for shipping than they do for the pads.....that really turned me off.

I really mashed up my hips last season, took home some pretty bad hippers.

Pd's dont seem to pricey, Pads are worth it for sure, I just want to make sure I don't endup with crappy pads that will be wrecked after 1 or 2 good sessions.....or....ones that feel like a nasty polyester shirt.

The current pro tecs look comfy....anyone try those?

Pd's definetly seem to be the most popular at the moment.

thanks all.

Yo G,
For hip pads, get a set of Crash Pads shorts. I've been wearing
them for every session since I got them last summer. They have
saved my ass plenty of times.
They may look a bit excessive on the website, but trust me,
they work! Plus, they're pretty comfy to wear for extended
sessions.

I got my Scabs kneepads from Team Goon. For hipper protection, you should also check out the Hillybilly Dirt Gear padded shorts. YEEHAW!
