What the heck?
I haven't played in a few years, but from time to time I like to browse the different web sites I used to visit and look at products available these days "just in case", yanno?

Well, I was browsing Animal the other day, then visited PBN and noticed something I'm confused about. WTF is up with all the padding being offered in jerseys these days? Have paintballs gotten harder? Are people shooting faster now? Or are players just more wimpy these days?

Lord, it used to be considered cool to bash noobs wearing that much padding....

Re: What the heck?
i havent looked at a jerseys lately but i know they put some padding in the arms/elbows a lot of times for more padding during slides

Re: What the heck?
They put in more padding to induce bounces and to help protect players on top of the pads they should be wearing underneath if they plan on superman diving. I'm with you, Vike. I usually just play in a t-shirt, but wear some APX gear pants and DYE kneepads.

Re: What the heck?
If they're so worried about bounces, maybe they should practice more on staying hidden, lol! You should see these jerseys - they're COVERED in padding! Forget hiding anymore - let's take all the bunkers out and make a starting line. On the horn just run at each other shooting. Last one out of paint wins!
