The pro elbows run large. I'm usually a size large because of Popeye forearms but I think I was a size 5 in 7k Pros (the writing is worn off now). The retail RBK/Jofa pads in size 5 were too small on me. From what I recall, the 7k/8k Pros basically wrap around your entire arm, or your arm slides into it, and there's almost 100% coverage. The 6k and other retail elbow pads more sat on the arm.

7k Pro = Jofa 9044



8k Pro = Jofa 9077 (same thing with extended cuff protection for super tall players):



Older RBK retail elbow pads (not 100% on the diff but they ran smaller and I think had less protection and coverage, still basically Jofas):



New Reebok KFS elbow pads (far less coverage, run smaller, have that stupid elbow tab that drastically limits mobility):
