A Guide to Equipment and Apparel

Hi Guys,

If I wrote a proper guide to help you guys out on equipment and apparel would you find it useful?

Thanks,


John

Would the guide be based on verifiable facts or would it simply be a collection of subjective opinions?

And how different would it be from the G+E FAQ?

it would cover all the thai brands from an unbias view. the thing what i always come across on the forum is pretty much the same questions. we need a sticky that gives a proper insight into the equipment and apparel. im willing to spend my time to sit down and write something for you guys.

This post is no ways a post to be an ultimate claim to an ultimate guide., but its my insight into equipment that may or may not help you to make a decision about the equipment you may purchase. I will do my upmost to be objective about the brands I mention.

Fairtex.
Fairtex have a pedigree for quality. This is compounded by them only earning some money a few years ago from their Fairtex product. I've been an adovacte of Fairtex for many years and having trained personally at their camps in Thailand I can personally say that the quality they have in their brand has not changed in the service in their camps, whilst a bit commercial its still quality.

I’ve personally used the BGV1. Perhaps it is op-tune moment to tell you a little about me. I started training pretty young. I initially started in Ju-Jitsu then moved to Muay Thai when I was 14 years, I took control of purchasing for Master Sken when I was around 22 years and whilst I learnt a little bit about quality of products this did not come full circle until I came to Thailand and learnt properly about how stuff is made.

If you want to know more +1 to this post.

I always found your opinion on Thai products informative and unbiased in the past. Looking forward to it! Many people don't have the money to try out all the thai brands and see which ones they like, so your guide should help new customers make better purchases.

He's no longer modding, or at least temporarily. How often do you think you need to update your guide? Yearly? Or whenever a new brand emerges?
