Elbow pads that don't suck

Do these exist? I always feel like my arm gets pinched in these and they really affect my stickhandling ability.

Mine usually end up on my forearms so they are pretty comfy

I like eastons. Everybody loves Jofas or older RBKs if you can find 'em, but you won't unless it's through a tremendous stroke of luck.

Try all of them on, they all fit different.

I like the ones with a strap across the elbow, but it does sometimes pinch. It's still better than the ones that slide down IMO.

Also, you can try using a heat gun or hair dryer to heat up the elbow pads and then put them on, they might form to your arms better. Just don't burn yourself

Mine have three straps: forearm, elbow, and biceps. They used to pinch at the elbow at first, but I just loosened the middle strap and tightened the other two a wee bit to compensate. Since then, I've never had a problem with them pinching or falling off. They're Jofas (can't remember which model), from about 10 years ago.

My elbow pads always seem to move up when I fall so I land right on my elbow....piece of craps.

I use the Easton S17's. I've tried on evey other brand and the only ones that fit good right away are Easton's. Best elbow pads I owned were the original Easton Synergy elbow pads. Never had a problem with pinching the pythons, brother.

There are some ebay sites that I've seen recently that have pro stock Jofa elbows. Definitely a bit pricey, but if you are in need of elbow pads that give you a lot of protection, I'd say that they would be worth the price of admission.

I picked up a pair of old Bauer Supreme 5000 a few years back that were terrific. Of course, since I haven't played in about four years, I'm going entirely off memory here.

On the plus side, whenever I get back into it, they're still in great shape.

Over $150 for a pair of elbow pads like the few that sold recently is my idea of a LOT pricey.

Don't bother trying for Jofa unless you wipe your ass with $20 bills.

I just picked up a pair of CCM Vectors, oddly enough they were one of the cheaper pairs but the fit is awesome and they protect very well. I probably tried on 10 different pairs of elbow pads and ended up with these. I think they're great, especially considering the price. They dont slip and dont pinch anywhere, and no interference with my gloves.

Well, if ur not looking for lots of protection...the bauer nike elbow pads are really nice...I have some nike airs that I got a few years back and love them...light and plenty of protection for adult leagues...I think I saw the similar pads listed as bauer 70 or the model above/around.

I've seen an ebay site that sells them new for $100. I'm definitely not saying that I wipe my posterior with $20 bills, but with other elbow pads that range from $50 to $70, the extra money spent is a bit of a stretch (but relative to what is important to the person using it). Some may justify spending $200+ on an S19 stick, but others may feel that spending more than $100 on a stick is already pricey.
