are neck guards and wrist guards worth the money?

Well said. For the tall and lanky like myself, we often have to buy equipment that is too short in order for it to fit properly around our arms, waists, chests. I wear a medium Vapor X40 elbow pad so they never slip down, but I'm 6'2" so there's a gap even with 15" gloves.
I wear a Warrior 3" wrist band style slash guard. I don't even notice them and they can prevent a broken arm from a hack. No brainer.
