| - lax92acm 6/14/10 reply|
light, low profile, good mobility and they don't slide down my arms. They are not that protective, but they make up for it in mobility.
| - venomlaxer 6/12/10 reply|

I got these when they first came out and have used them since. Ok protection and very mobile. But it does pinch your arm
| - Tolan 3/21/10 reply|
These or Brine LoPro AP Defense? Other suggestions too possibly??
| - JohnCarrollLAX 3/11/10 reply|
I have the white ones and I used these pads for three years and they always have provided perfect protection. nice and flexible they only issue I have had is the metal rusts and stains the pad but just washing with a little bleach in the washer makes them perfect again. For other colors I don't think the rust will be a problem
| - thizzledizzle 2/06/10 reply|
not nasty in the good way either, these suck, u feel every thing, theyre comfortable, but they do pinch your biceps, do not get, but do get the other k18's the bigger kind, those are great
| - laxitup247 11/02/09 reply|
you will et more protection from a condom than these bad boys, overall flexible and they look cool but that is about it ... no protection go with brine lopros

i have these arm pads and one thing ive noticed is that they rust. Your sweat will make the metal clip rust and you really cant find the right comforbility with them.
| - Teh Starter :) 6/16/09 reply|
i play D and i dont want big arm pads. these look comfy but are they really worth 60 bucks?
| - laxer32323 6/17/09 reply|
no dont get them. well actually it depends on the size of your forearm. if its big get them. but my forearm is kinda big i guess for a 13 year old and they slide down my arm all the time
| - Teh Starter :) 6/21/09 reply|
if your forearms big wouldnt that make them not slide down your arm?
| - ramtd84 5/30/09 reply|

| - laxer042993 6/02/09 reply|
they r ok but i mean they have limited protection and it hurts a little getting slashed on varsity but i just play through it not to bad
| - cmclax2 5/13/09 reply|
theese pads are great for d they give just the right amount of protection if u bring the ball up
| - bcatslax12 5/12/09 reply|
im a middie and i LOVE them but if your an attack you might be going through more traffic so you might want to go with the arm GUARD version. the brine supercross arm pads are also really nice

| - wem3193 2/01/09 reply|
im looking at the k18s, the cell aps, the cell arm guard, or the lopro aps. I want a pad that has good mobility and protection that protect the side of your elbow
| - T24legacy 1/13/09 reply|
dont get white, it looks good but the dirt will make you regret it big time
| - sgtrubberducky 1/04/09 reply|
It really depends on what youre looking for and what your preferences are. These would be good for midfield or defense because theres a lot less padding and a lot of mobility and the K18 arm guards would be good for midfield and attack because it has great padding and has great mobility for arm guards. But it just depends on what you want. Hope that helps!
| - SI WILDCATS 4/11/09 reply|
Maybe if you dont mind getting hit in the arms a lot...they are great for mobility but lack protection...and get medium
| - Dplyr40 1/04/09 reply|
How much coverage do you get on the forearms?
| - cflax18 1/10/09 reply|
it all depends on how big you are and what size you get. I am 5'6 and 145pounds and it covers about half of my forearms. so that might give some kind of feel for what they cover. oh and i wear a medium.
| - Tripoli 12/10/08 reply|
i play varsity attack and i need lightweight but protection do these have that
| - DeShurkolax21 1/18/09 reply|
they are very light weight and flexible but they arnt the most protective but u should just man up and take the hits
| - SI WILDCATS 4/09/09 reply|
Yea, they have nearly no protection but are some are the lightest and most flexible pads
| - papabojangles 11/19/08 reply|
I tried these on and i fell in love with them. They fit perfectly with your arms except for the few people that have no muscles.

Which arm pad is better for mobility and protection?

What are the STX armpads that are small and used by players like Steven Brooks and Max Seibald?
Are they these K18's cause they dont look the same

shouls i gey these or warrior players club arm pads??? plz help
| - sdlax99 9/30/08 reply|
does anybody know how good the protection is? I have the chopper arm guards and those are to big. But i want something that is not to bulky but does not loose protection. If anybody can give me an answer or other suggestion thank you.
| - boolater 10/02/08 reply|
I have these arm pads and they are very comfortable and light, but as far as protection goes it kind of depends. The Chopper arm guards have that plastic cap on the elbow. I also have some Warrior PC elbow guards with the big plastic cap on the elbows and they are very protective, but for me they can sometimes get annoying and bulky. Anyways, the k18's ag's are protective in the fact that you can take a hard check on the elbow and it won't hurt. If they are worn correctly at the elbow they leave a lot of forearm unprotected.(some players slide them down to cover more forearm -incorrect, but do what you want)
| - UvA LaXeR 9/22/08 reply|
i am lookin for some armpads that are light, well-padded (i can take a hit though), and don't consume your arm (i want small pads). are these good for that? i play att and like i said, can take a hit. i just want mobility and decent padding.

does the strap with the velcro that goes all around go on the top or the bottom?
and how do you know which one is right or left
| - tomx28xnar 6/09/08 reply|
If i remeber correctly velco goes ontop. . . and i dont think theyre specifed for left and right arm unless its on the tags?
| - patgoal13 6/10/08 reply|
so the velcro that goes all the way around your arm is the top?
| - boolater 6/16/08 reply|
the stx logo and k18 logo are supposed able to read when you are standing still, arms at the side.....that make sense. so i guess that means the velcro strap, that goes all the way around, is at the top.
| - PJAMLAX94 6/07/08 reply|
r these good? and im almost 14, 130 pounds and 5'6"
i cant figure out which size to get
| - patgoal12 6/04/08 reply|
I'm 11, I play attack, I can take a check, and I have pretty big arms, will the medium fit me?
| - tomx28xnar 6/06/08 reply|
check the sizing chart. . . i dont see why they wouldnt and if they dont they comne with straps tio adjust them anyway. . . if all else fails wear an arm band right below where the strap is to prevent them from moving as much.
| - patriotlaxer42 6/02/08 reply|
im 11 and i have pretty big arms adn i play attack but im not a woussy-- i can take a slash--should i get these

i have these and they dont fall down alot, i played with a bruised elbow..the bone was bruised and i wore these and not a scrath these are amazing get them
| - calleymn 6/01/08 reply|
these pads were made for those positions so ur good.
the pads are giant but the offer good protection for what they are.
if these are to epensive look at the brine lopro ap
those are really good.
only down side they slide a little
| - warrior2673 6/01/08 reply|
are the g22 good or are those as restricking as the mpg

ive never tried the g22's but the k18 are sweet just get them

I play attack and want an arm pad that light weight and doesnt cover too much? which arm pad should i get?
| - NClaxer18 5/26/08 reply|
dude i play attack too, these pads are sick, just what you are looking for. they are not big and bulky like other attack pads and still have good protection, maximum mobility. i play varsity attack and i love them, best pads ever. and these stay on your arm, lots of the other arm pads slide down but these dont slide at all.
| - ∆ø∆ 5/31/08 reply|
get the dynasty mids or the k18s
| - SI WILDCATS 4/09/09 reply|
These are great for mobility but dont have much protection at all...i use them for attack and they are really great for flexibility but my arms get destroyed...if you want a bigger pad i would get shogun's or k18
| - mfieldlax77 5/25/08 reply|
i play attack, but i want something that i can move around in... are these good?
| - Dmcdlax 5/16/08 reply|
I reccomend these for Defense all the way. They do offer some protection, but not a ton. If you keep the straps on your sholder pads, you can wear these for attack or midfield. If you a midfielder who doesn't mide getting checked a lot, these are good as well.
| - izzylax10 5/13/08 reply|
would these be good for attack. I usually dodge from the top though.
if not good, recommend any others that arent over $70
| - lllax 5/14/08 reply|
i would get the maverick mid arm guard about the same size and has more protection really comfy and the same price

WHAT SIZE DO I NEED
IM 5ft and weigh 81 pounds could i possibly ware a medium

a medium would work, it might be a little big though, you can tighten them with the straps and use tape. you should be straight with a medium but definately DO NOT GET A LARGE, your tiny
