Have you thought about the B3 3 Stripe batting pads? Light, comfortable, great protection and very good value...

Forgive me,but when the very best Test pads are available from India around the 40/50 mark,why do Co`s believe selling more or the less the same model for double the price,makes commercial sense ?
I accept own branding and shipping costs,marketing and an obvious margin is sought,but 100 ?

Is that 40/50 Direct from the manufacturer?

If so you need to factor in cost, trade then retail margins with everyone wanting to make a margin to survive as a business

It's almost like people are trying to make a living..

I agree the 100 is steep, but you're not just paying for the material imo, countless hours go into finding the right supplier, getting the right designs and picking the best materials, and at the end of the day you're also paying for your after sales care should you need it, alot of the time you simply don't get that buying from India.

And you have to factor in economies of scale, these indian brands would be making thousands upon thousands of the same product as opposed the hundreds or less being manufactured for small brands.

From forum sponsors Iv used Red Ink softs and they are very good all round. Protection is as good as any and price is reasonable for top end kit.

Iv currently got some GN Velocity 800 pads that I picked up from the GN clearance page on eBay for 23 with free delivery and these are as good as anything Iv used including the GM OLE and 909 pads Iv used the last 3 seasons. So good in fact Iv bought 2 pairs to last me the next few seasons.
