    I'd rather pay the extra dough and get Sprawls. Way better quality.

    Looks like M. Garcia just "endorses them" Read as he gets them for free, so if they are not that great of quality, than he does not care as he gets "free pairs"!

    Not so for the poor foke like us! haha

    well they are made by ground fighter (WMA) the guys that produce his DVDs -- shogun and Ninja wear them too in there instructional

    $30 is a decent price though

    They do look pretty crappy but I doubt Marcelo wears these. I think he wore them on a DVD but that's about it.

    Actually, these shorts are really good. no, we don't sell them (we used to).

    honestly, it's a good quality short.

    marcelo does wear these shorts, and $30 is a really good price, I'll prolly pick up a pair for that price. Marcelo can be seen wearing these shorts in the video below

    im pretty sure that Marcelo wore these during ADCC 2007 so they must be pretty good shorts. being one of the top grapplers in the world im pretty sure he wouldnt use shitty gear

    The worst shorts and customer support, wore the shorts 3 time over a 2 month period and the material came apart along the seem of the flex panel, sent 4 emails to the company no replies.

    The shors aren't bad for the price. The embroidery on mine came slightly undone on one side. The other side is still intact a year later. They are actually a decent pair of shorts. The only thing I dont like which seems to be par for all these grappling shorts is the bulky velcro. I just roll the waist band over once and they are very comfortable to roll in. I never think twice about it. The construction is actually nice with side slits and flex panel inseam. They are similar the sprawls in most aspects.
