Ok, I gotta decide on a design by tomorrow. I've re-worked some ideas, and think I have these 5 in the running.

First, My gloves for reference:

Option 2. Red should be the primary colour and stand out.

You almost had me clicking the last option. Could you imagine the wrath I'd hear from the Finacee if I told her that I offered to buy someone else pads?

"Sorry sweetheart, I clicked on the option. I'm legally not allowed to back out".

Just tell her "hey, babe, the poor guy spent all his money on a kilt... and kids - and at least I'm keeping it in Canada!"

Oh, and beer. I spend a lot on my beer habit.

She'd just think I was making up a clone of myself.

Possible - but if you were "making up a clone of yourself," why would you make "him" so much better looking than you are...? :P

I picked 4 but I preferred one from your previous thread.

Well, if you pick "I will pay for your pads," and send me some cash, you can choose the other design - LOL!

But seriously, was it this one you preferred? I think this looks bad ass - at least on the customizer.

Yes.  And to improve upon it I would even make the white "spike" that comes up from the inner toe red instead of white.  Of course, again, this all goes by my thought that as long as everything is red white black then I don't think everything has to match 100%.  If you want all the graphics to be as close as possible to matching I would say 4 or 5.

I like the one further down or number 1 best purely based on design. When looking what goes best with your glove and blocker, I choose 5.

I like this one better too as it minimizes that amount of red in the design.   Just a personal preference, but I feel like red is a color that really takes over when used as more than an accent.

Hmmm. I thought I was OK with ruling out the black boot theme, but I'm feeling the love for it here. I think this works pretty well actually - even with the gloves. Not super matchy-matchy, but more than passingly complementary:

IMO... the last set w/ black boot or option 4. With so many color zones on both the gloves and the leg pads you go on for weeks tweeking... makes it really tough. None will ever "match" so having them compliment is a great option

You need to go with eggplant, grey, metallic gold and retro tan in your colourway.

WTF? Are you crazy???

It needs to be eggplant, grey, metallic gold and buff.

Pfffft - retro tan. Puh-leeeeze

Appreciate the votes, and especially the comments here folks! Pulled the trigger on this design. Pretty happy with it! Now to pretend that I still like my old pads for the next 10-14 weeks (all the while hating them with a quiet disdain, their future ensured only by the fact that I need some resale cash out of them.)

BTW - I am still accepting offers for someone to pay/offset the cost. The combined cost of my first two cars was less than these pads! LOL!

Excited for you man.

I'd supplement this post with a wonderful gif, but I can't seem to upload anything without error. :thumbdown:

Appreciate that, brother!

And for the record, I never once claimed to my wife that this would be "the last pair I ever have to buy," so we might all be back here in a similar poll thread in a few years - LOL!

I'm sure your wife would've seen through that very transparent lie anyways. :P

You know that will not be the case, Mark!!!!

Though weirdly enough, I have settled into my favourite pads. But knowing me, I will become restless and get another pair. My wife thinks I have FAR too many sweaters, however.

Yes!  That is exactly what I was thinking.

LOL - part of me hates that I didn't come up with my "winning design" on my own, and I was really effing close to going without that red spike... but in the 11th hour, I decided I wanted less white on there.

...but if they look like shit in person when they arrive, I'm buying white Jenpro, and sending you the bill, @SaveByRichter35
