    Unless you want to rape your shins and fuck them up, yes shin pads are needed.

    revgear makes some good stuff that is a little less expensive. I have Fairtex which are great but I actually like my friends Revgear better.

    Get the ProStyle. The standard is too bulky.

    If you're new, you're still gonna feel some pain through your guards. One of my trainers is one of my best friends, and when we train combinations on the weekend, I put on the shin pads (he goes raw).

    I'm always the one that has to say, "Okay, that's as much as I can take for the day." Purple shins the next. Good stuff.

    Fairtex is only decent. They are made in the same exact bulding as Twins and Windy. Same exact stuff. Decent product, not great. Couple that with the fact they likely will not have your product, and I'd say they are subpar. However, I would check out combatsports.com. Superior products made by ringside. Their grappling shinpads are revolutionary for mma trianing and hold up great against hard kicks.
