I am going to be buying some new gear and wanted to get your input on my purchases. Gloves-I am fairly certain that I want to go with Fairtex gloves. The only problem is that a lot of the websites that are included in the sticky at the top of the page do not carry Fairtex (except for Fairtex itself). Anyone know of any websites where I can get the best deal on some nice 16 oz. Fairtex gloves. Also, which model of glove should I go with if I choose to go with Fairtex (safety training, super sparring, heavy hitter, or thai style)? Shin Pads-I am a tall skinny guy (6'5 195) and have no idea which brand to go with in order to try and get the best fit. Any input on this would be greatly appreciated. Rash Guard-Are there any brands of rash guard that I should stay away from? What size should I order? I have been training for about a month and a half and I am tired of having to use the gym's loaner equipment. Thanks guys and I am looking forward to your comments.
