I upgraded from triple 8 pad. Wish I had bought these in the first place. The triple 8s stretched to much after 2 years. Thought the pro might be bulky, but don't even notice them when rolling. Appreciate the extra padding, seeing I am 55. Bought a complete set of 187 knee, elbow, wrist guards. Was expensive but completely worth every penny.

After skating with the 187 Pro Cores for 3 years I upgraded to these. They're definitely less bulky across the knee, but they do stick out a bit further. Bigger, better crossovers, I guess. The hinge in the padding above the plastic bit makes them more, and I like that they completely undo, so I don't have to have my skates off to get the knee pads on or off. I have horrible knees (Osgood-Schlatter) and, after taking a particularly hard fall on the worse of my knees, I'm very confident my knees are well protected.

I was worried about the effects of the bulkiness of these knee pads on my crossovers, but after 10 minutes, it was like I had always been skating with them. I almost LIKE falling on my knees now because they're so cushy. They do fit a little small, but will stretch out after use. Also, love the velcro protectors that come with them for when you put them in the washing machine - I like when my gear doesn't end up in a huge tangle!

I upgraded to these a few weeks ago and have been completely satisfied. Now I never feel any pain in my knees during drops and falls. Considering how important your knees are, I really feel this was one of the wisest investments I've made so far. Additionally, I appreciate the little tags that indicate "LEFT" and "RIGHT". ^_^

I upgraded from my killer pads with these, and while it took me awhile to get used to the bulkiness, or even figure out how to strap them properly, I really like these knee pads now. Being a small frame, I'm the easy target on the track and love the extra cushioning as I don't feel much!

I really liked the idea of these knee pads: plush padding, but in a smaller profile. However, after taking another bruising knee fall at practice last night, I have ordered the 187 Pro Core knee pads I had before. (I had since handed them off to a teammate, when I got the Pro Derby). I do have crappy knees, so need the extra protection. The Pro Derby are a good pad, just not for me. I will keep them and use them for skating on the trail or for public events where we are not actually playing.

Not for me ... Used scabs for 18ths & never had sore or bruised knees, I bought these in Aug/sept & have had problems on & off since. They seem too narrow I think, for me anyway. Back to scabs for me.. expensive lesson ...

I upgraded to these from the 187 Killer pad and have been unhappy with my choice. They stretch out quickly. The cap is small, and they are bulky, so when I fall on them I rock on the cap which throws me a little off balance. Sometimes the knee pad actually slides to the side when I fall and my actual knee impacts the ground. This happened numerous times and I now wear a brace on my left knee because of it. An expensive lesson learned. My next set will be Scabs.
