I just bought the Title MMA training gloves last night and i'm looking to buy a new pair of shin gear. So I was just wondering what gear everyone uses?

Anyone use the Combat Sports grappeling shin guards? or any other claiming to be for grappeling?

I've used those, and they definitely are better for grappling. For kickboxing I wouldn't suggest anything but Fairtex, but when it comes to grappling I've got to admit the combat sports ones aren't bad. Just because they don't have the belt and buckle style that most do

Twins gloves and shin guards. For shorts I wear UA compressions and a pair of venom muay thai shorts or a set of UA shorts.

I can say that I have used fairtex twins and everlast gloves(as well as various gloves that the RCMP stocks) and twins are by far my favorite. They wear better then fairtex(not much but a little) and I like how the fingers move. One problem with twins is they're not the greatest if you have long fingers(mine extend out from the tip of the glove a little to far).

Hey do you where the Thai shorts for grappling too? I was looking at them and they actually seem like they might be better being that they are shorter.

I prefer something tight fitting and a bit longer for grappling. It pisses me off when my foot gets caught on people's baggy shorts so I like to be courteous in the same regard back. Although most thai shorts aren't too bad for that cuz the crotch area doesn't hang too low.

Also I don't like having too much skin exposed on the mat out of fear for rashes and nasty mat sickness stuff (ringworm, etc.)

Shin Guards-Hayabusa Pro-Shin-Instep Guards (I rarely wear shin guards anymore)
Gloves- Hayabusa Gloves
Shorts- Hayabusa Kyudo shorts, bad boy Vale tudo shorts, and Sprawl V-Flex shorts
Mouth Guard- Shock Doctor Gel Max
Thai Gloves- Windy's

I've definetely fallen in love with Hayabusa products. They're typically a little on the expensive side but you get what you pay for.

I have. They're nice but most of my stuff is Revgear. I just like them because they're easier to order from and there stuff is comfortable.

Hayabusa is an excellent brand, I'm just too cheap to order from them.

Yeah I just got them in today! I can't wait to use them tomorrow! I do have to say I bought the regular sized ones and I don't have very big hands and they just barely fit.
