    although i've heard the elites are uncomfortable compared to the pros in terms of size/bulk

    I wanna know if it is worth the extra to get the Elite.
    Though i much prefer my mouth guards comfortable cause I compete.

    One of the gladiator reps mentioned that the pro is definitely adequate for striking. I have a pro for boxing, and it is absolutely superb for the price. Can't recommend it enough.

    There is only about $5 difference between the two.

    For boxing, I love my Gladiator Pro.

    get the pro. if you feel like you needed added protection (witch I think you won't) get the elite 50% off.

    If I'm not mistaken Eddie Alavrez uses the Pro. So if it's good enough for a high level mma fighter, I'm sure it'll be good enough for a local level(?) mt fighter.

    I got it on my first mouthguard that my dog chewed up. It definitely made in uncomfortable to wear and won't be getting it on my next guard.

    I guess if you're thinking of getting Power Grip

    Might aswell go for the Elites right?

    I just mailed my pro mold in. I mostly do bjj now but I'll box once a week and spar a couple times a month. I'll post an update once I get the guard.

    I was in the same shoes as OP but went with the pro because I struggle to breathe with a bulky mouth-guard. Never seen an elite up close but was looking for "just enough" protection.
