PostPosted: Sun Jan 18, 2004 2:37 pm    Post subject: Is TigerStrike gear any good? Reply with quote

Hi! I was wondering if anyone can tell me if TigerStrike sparring gear (as seen here) is any good. It's pretty inexpensive in this set, and it looks good, at least in the pictures. This is the first time I've purchase any sparring gear, and I haven't even used headgear yet, so I'm not really sure what to look for.

Thanks!

I think it looks like crap, especially the footgear, never seen any thing like that before... but then again I dont kick ! Those gloves seem to be pretty low quality, or is it the silver color that does that?
I dont know man, seems pretty bad to me... one good thing is the headgear, they dont cover too much of the face, just like its supposed to be...

Thanks guys! (although I kinda like the silver )

(By the way, this is my real alias, without the 1. I just did that because I had accidentally said that I was under 13, but I wanted to make a post even though it hadn't been cleared up yet. )

Check out www.tigerclaw.com , or any other MA supply sites. I'm sure they'll have better quality gear and the color u want.
