Hey guys, Rob here. New around these parts and new to MMA as of the past month or so. Absolutely love the sport, health benefits and challenge! I just joined a gym in San Diego by the name of Intensity MMA. I have already purchased MMA gloves (RDX cowhide, seem very nice!) and I purchased their shin guards in L which were just too small and the quality appeared to be pretty shotty. Returned those the same day, lol. Anyhow, after lots of research on here and on the good ol interwebz, I have arrived at Top King being the way to go. My decision now is where to order and what size to order! Feedback and help would be appreciated! I am 6ft 250lbs and have some big calves so I am leaning toward XL. Here are a couple of my measurements. Shin 15.5 inches Instep 8 inches Calves just over 19 inches (I cycle about 20 miles on the weekends for the past few years) I have definitely checked the threads on here and it seems like people very rarely go for XLs when they have similar dimensions, and I have heard that Top Kings do run big. When I ordered and subsequently returned the RDX shin guards in L they were too small, but I know things change brand to brand. It was mostly the top strap of the calves being very short, only biting maybe 2 inches on the velcro. I knew that just wouldn't last long. Any feedback would be appreciated! It seems to be muaythaifactory and muaythaistuff are the two best places to order, so I wanted to check the feedback with the guys on here and go from there. Thanks in advance!
