    I am not sure if I can post this here or not so I will keep it simple for now. I have tried using local means but I guess a lot if BJJ guys in my area dont check them out.

    I have a Shoyoroll Blackstar size A5, it has been color locked and washed about 4 times to help shrink. It has barely faded and I think it is about as faded as it is going to get anytime soon, you maybe able to shrink it a bit more if you need too with a hot wash and hot dry. But it has NEVER been rolled in.

    I joined a new club a few months ago, that is a more traditional school since the teacher was trained by John Machado. White belts can only wear white gis, and I wont be able to wear this till I got my purple.

    So I am looking to trade this for a white Gi, Koral Classic A4 or Atama Mundial Model #7 or #9 in A4 or something in that quality range, I have even been eye-balling a Krogans Tribal A4 (I am on a budget as I am a student). I dont mind if it is used, but I dont want anything that is covered in sweat\blood staines. It is hard enough keeping my Superlite RS white as it is lol.

    I am sry if this is against the rules, but I have had minimal interest from people who want stuff for nothing posting locally.

    If only it was an A4 :(, pretty sure an A5 would be a little too big for me.

    Also, if I can warn you against the Krugan gi, they're like wearing burlap sacks covered in sand paper, don't do it.

    Also if there's a possibility you think this A5 might fit me (6'4, 205ibs) I might have a white Koral light or white Vulkan pro light.

    I have a blue Koral Classic A4 (that I am going to hold onto, since I will be able to us it sooner than this) and the SYR A5 Blackstar fits just like the Koral A4.
