    My blue belt is an older atama one. I've noticed that the new atama ones are much thinner and are not of the same quality. The koral ones are really light and not my favorite either. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Those are pretty pricey, but if you're Blue or Higher, a belt will take a long time before it outlives its usefulness.

    Those war ones look interesting. I have heard good things about HCK as well. WAR ones is pretty pricy in comparison. Do you have one? Is it worth the cash?

    other people have noticed a drop in quality in the new belts-- this is not good from atama---- higher prices and lower quality....

    i have a kf fighter-- does the job-- just buy a 100% cotten one --there always good

    I hate to say it but HCK belts are really really nice. They are thick but pliable. Well worth the price.

    I hate hate hate HCK gi's though.

    I am a white belt, so I have the Koral belt I got with my gi. A few guys I know have the WAR belts, and they really are nice. Indestructible, but flexible. When I get my blue I'll pick one up.
