whats your weight? Dye C5's I had were awesome. I'm 6'1" 150lbs and I had XS. I'm skinny, and they were a tiny bit tight, which is how I like them. I like em a little snug so they don't move around.

Redz elbow pads and knee pads are pretty good as well. I use the elbow pads, which were a bit tight when I first got them but the loosened with some use.

Although I like the knee pads, I have a pair of Franklin volleyball knee pads that were like ten bucks from Wal-Mart - they work perfectly and NEVER fall down. Extra thick padding as well...

Yeah, I pretty much had my mind set on the Dye C5's, UNTIL I went to the local shop to try and find a good size that fit me in the C5's.. Well, while I was there I saw the Empire Ventz Elbow/Forearm pads.. I saw that they were only 33 bucks and I tryed them on.. They felt and fit better than the 53 Dollar Dye C5's! I picked them up and I couldn't be happier.. They NEVER move around and show no sign of premature wear or thread's coming undone.. Also, they protect you arms and elbows from slides VERY well.. I can't even feel Superman dives.. Also, I haven't had ONE hit break on my forearms since I got them.. They have all bounced.. I say it was a great buy for 33 bucks!
