    I am looking at buying a new gi. Want something good for practice and also for competition.

    I have no idea what the difference is between single weave, pearl, gold weave, feather, double, etc...what do I want...

    I am leaning towards an Atama or Gameness...also Manto...suggestions??

    (I know there are other threads about gi buying...sorry if it is redundant.

    HCK makes a nice gi that is pretty cheap. They are definitely a no frills kind of gi. Atama and Gameness are really nice, though. I really like the slender fit of most Gameness.

    ahh, see if you can find the older version of the mkm anywhere, it should be a bit cheaoer, i like it more then the new one anyway

    if not, then i would say atama, i personaly didnt care for the gameness, buut thats just me. I alot love the HCK gi's

    of course alot of this is all relevant, and if you could say your height and weight, other could help you out a bit more.
