    Has anyone bought tapout long shorts? If so, what is your general opinion about the tapout long shorts?
    I received a mail from budovideos.com with the news that they have new Tapout long shorts in stock and I was wondering what the quality of these shorts are.
    Thnx in advance for your answers!

    They are good if you cannot afford Sprawl.

    Sprawl.tv - for all your fightshort needs!

    (ps: the only beef I've ever heard was the stitching on some of the Tapout shorts was weak and would break)

    Not recommended for kickers. Gets in the way I have heard.

    Thnx for the replies guys!
    @Fozzy: sprawl shorts, I definitely want one of those too, I'm just looking for an online store somewhere in europe / uk that offers them.
    @Phenom: wouldn't use 'em for kicking ;-) Just grapplin' an' rollin'.

    You guys got any ideas of the sizes? I've read in a thread about sprawl shorts that you should order them a size bigger than your regular size of pants.
    (I've got a HCK red grappling shorts size 32 which is the size a normally wear (32-33)).

    Thnx again!

    Yea, I have heard that you should order Tapouts a size up.

    I wear a 36 jean and on my Tapout shorts I wear a 34. If I was going to wear a cup then I would wear a 36. If you get a pair from me and they don't fit you can send them back for an exchange or a refund.

    I have been trying to get a pair of the long shorts for several months now but they have almost no stock :mad: And there customer service has been really inconsistant. One week I get someone polite and nice and the next time I get someone who is really not so plesant. If I can ever get a pair I will review them here, but first they have to get stock so I can.

    I have the same problems with Tapout (they seem to really want to push the t-shirts and not the shorts, which is too bad because the shorts are well made) as you do Aldino. Hopefully Tapout will be restocked soon so I can get more sizes in stock. I got the "All American" short's in stock in size 34.

    Why are Tapout shorts so expensive? Do they vibrate or something?

    Almost all fight shorts are around $40-50. That is just the way it is.
