    Hey guys i decided on some gear that im going to get, was just going to throw down some links and see what people had to say or if they had any experience with it.

    These were recommended by my coach. He said he likes them a lot. This is a great price imo.
    Fairtex Ultimate Combat Gloves $51.99 from www.fullcontactoutlet.com

    Shin guards
    Top Contender MMA Shin Guards $29.95 from www.fullcontactoutlet.com

    Also i wanted to ask about ear guards. I have kinda bigish ears that stick out and i noticed that rolling on the mat really bothers them. No one else in the class was using them so i didnt know if it was a bitch move or not. Personally I'd rather not develop cauliflower ears and keep my dumbo ears in the best of shape. I am just looking at local sporting goods stores since they seem to have a big selection unlike mma gear. Here is a link to one im looking at....
    Brute Adult Shockwave Wrestling Ear Guard - Dick's Sporting Goods

    In the future ill look into head gear, but the gym provides that equipment since it also teaches kickboxing and boxing.

    Thanks!

    I have a cliff keen tornado, it's the best ear guard on the market.

    Those tornadoes are good but I like the classic Cliff Keens. But, any headgear from Cliff Keen is the best.

    Hey, I like seeing my name up there!

    - ljcsov, just so you know, I can get that eargaurd too for the same price. I don't make any money on them, so I don't have them listed, but just for the ease of convenience, and a single shipping charge (on your end), I can get ahold of them and have them shipped as one package.

    Those fairtex's are top notch. You can't find a better quality glove and I would deffinently recommend them.

    Just shoot me an e-mail and tell me what size in the black and I'll see about the stock levels. I get everything same day (about 2pm cst) so there's no wait either.

    FullContact,
    Which of your top contender shinguards would you recommend for sparring? Not sure which to go with...Also i was curious about the sizing...im 6' 170lb, not sure which size to go with...i measured my knuckles like it said on the site. im around 3.75 so i figured the regulars would be a perfect fit after some stretching. What should i go with on the shin guards?
