Best mma gear

Hey,im new on here and I thought id post a thread as i havent seen (maybe not trawled through) enough threads on here. So im just wondering what you guys all feel is the best mma gear about? And prices for that stuff? Because i no that price generally dictate quality but thats not always the case.

I'm a huge fan of hayabusa gear. To start with I got some cool looking cheap stuff, only 10-15 cheaper than the hayabusa stuff but was trying to save a penny.

Rashguard frayed after 2 months, shorts burst at the thighs from throwing knees after 2 1/2 months, hole on the groin after 3ish.

Got the Hayabusa gear, first pair of gloves were faulty and split my knuckles so I sent away and got another pair. Comfiest gloves I have ever worn. Rashguard doesn't have a mark on it and shorts are also as good as new (minus the sweat stink) after going on 7 months.

Well worth forking out that little bit extra, never stinging out again.

haha exact same brand as me to start with, cheaper isn't best since they do't last anywhere near as long :P

I found the RDX is okay for kickboxing but grappling shreds it.

So what kinda stuff do u guys keep in your gym bags? e.g multiple gloves etc. nd anyone had any experience with cleto reyes?because im thinknig about the mexican style lace ups next.(or whatever they called).And i think ive only ever seen faitex gloves on ebay once but i guess i never check now.lol.but as ebay's a 'get it cheap place'does anyone really care about the extra few quid to know its a trusted place?e.g a shop as apposed to ebay because i know i dont.And finally, ive seen fairtex do some thigh guards (on their sight), so has anyone used or know someone who has used them,and if so, are they any good for conditioning etc.

If you don't mind spending a bit extra then Hayabusa is the way to go. I have their MMA gloves and shorts and there is no complaints from me AT ALL.
