looking into getting a new pair of instep guards. want to pick up a pair of grappling guards this time cause the velcro was a pain in the ass. really leaning towards the Kanpeki elite right now. bought the headgear a few months ago and it's one of the best investments i've made. has anyone used the Kanpeki shin pads? how do they feel? do they slip/shift much?

Kanpeki line is a rip off, $20 extra for the look? Hayabusa is overpriced to begin with as well.

if you can get the shin guards under $70, then go ahead, but don't pay retail.

i agree, and the "vintage" look isn't that cool. i really do love my head gear though. got it on sale for like $90 shipped. i have the title gel insteps right now. they have great coverage but they slide and shift way too much.

Personally, I hate the headgear, that bottom chin piece always ends up covering your mouth and a pain to adjust.

Headgear is a tough one cause everyone has different shaped faces for the most part. Gonna try and get down to Los Angeles where I can go to an actual retailer and try things on first. Best way. Phone Post

Hayabusa's are great. Had them for almost a year and there holding up nicely. Combat sports makes one very similar and my buddy has them andover his. Either way you're golden. Phone Post
