I've heard that these elbow pads, which have no hard shell but instead harden on impact, are really good:

Of course, they're also really expensive, but they're still cheaper than medical bills.

So they've started making pads out of wet cornstarch? Awesome. Let's make cookies!
Hey look, a search function! Right up there! No on the left

Perhaps we should all spend a little more time reading and a little less time making shit up.

I don't know that I'd want to make cookies with anything that can be found in a knee or elbow pad. :P

Those pads also have a Kevlar front to protect from abrasion, which Kevlar can also be pretty rigid, though until I saw them in person (I can't afford $90 elbow pads) I can't completely make an assessment on them.

I was always under the impression the gaskets were designed for under pads, as an extra to the hard shell-ed pads.

This is true. Some feel they can serve to protect from *CL injuries as well, but I wouldn't know about that. Additionally, they serve to keep the hard pads in place.

We had a pro derby skater come out to join in a scrimmage, but wasn't allowed to skate because she had soft elbow pads. Apparently those kinds of leagues discourage the use of hard shell elbow pads.

Which type of 'pro' the Wrestling style "Pro derby' I could see it then, because the elbows they intentionally throw for the spectacle of it would be more dangerous with hard pads.

well looks like 4.0 has us covered now

10.1.2.1 Wrist guards, elbow pads, knee pads and helmets must have a hard protective shell or inserts.

There's only one "pro derby" league out there that's currently putting on games. Regardless of all that, their rules are different, they have some legal forms of elbow use, which is pretty close I think to what was allowed at Battle on the Bank 2. Some kind of upper arm block or something. Not hitting someone with the point of the elbow. I think it's aimed more at accidentally hitting someone with the hard-shelled elbow pad.

Yet we've been told kevlar on anti gloves is no good (although I've found them better then any other wrist guard)

This is actualy the clarification/loophole I've been looking at, rule states 'hard protective shell OR insert' anti gloves have an insert, albiet on the top


edit: noticed this is 3x rules, but question still stands

You might want to post a new thread about it in the regular 4.x forums.
