2006 STX Stinger elbow pads
Reviewed by: James on 7/17/2007Rating :

I was shopping for arm pads about 2 years ago and while I was looking at the NRS models and other Kayaking specific models I ran across these at Play it again sports.


At first I was not sure if they would provide the coverage that I was looking for but after using them for a few years I am sold.

The main difference that I have seen between these and WW specific models is the cushioned support cup for your elbow and the plastic flaps to protect the sides from impact. Despite other features and fine qualities these two things alone have saved my elbows from many damaging blows and impacts.


The following are some of the features that these Elbow Pads Boast.

  • Wrap-around coverage for forearm, elbow and bicep
  • High impact PE elbow for superior coverage
  • Anatomically contoured for maximum coverage with minimum bulk
  • Durable KP polyester construction shell for multi-season play
  • EVA foam in key coverage zone
  • Comfortable spandex sleeve with adjustable elastic strap
  • Extra comfort foam pad in inner liner for a no-slip fit
  • Super soft liner feels comfortable and wicks away moisture
COLORS:
Black

SIZES:
S,M,L,XS

And here is a link to the MFG.

The only thing lacking on this is a bit more coverage for the lower fore-arm but I have yet to encounter a hit in that area. Fingers Crossed.

Edit 4/2/2010 : I have taken several forearm hits.. coverage there is nice to have, but you can't have your cake and eat it too!
