Pros: Great value, Quality, if you are handy
Cons: Difficult to use, don't buy unless your head is an xs
These pads are outstanding IF....YOU ARE HANDY WITH A SCISSORS, NEEDLE AND THREAD!! I read the reviews looked at them had my son try them and could not get them off his head, however for the price I could see the potential! Took them home made a slice about an inch down on either side of the tag, careful not to damage the threads by the pads (cut through all material) then sew ends of cut, it will look like a V . WE GOT 2" OF EXTRA ROOM. IT FITS. AWESOME PADS IF YOU CAN DO THIS!!!

Disappointed...
Pros: Great value, Quality
Cons: Difficult to use
Too good to be true. The neck opening of the shoulder pads REALLY IS TOO DARN SMALL!!!!
I loved the price of these pads for my son. However, the opening to fit your head thru is not the appropriate size for the player. Graf has also included a Velcro closure at the back of the neck BUT it doesn't do anything regarding size, EXCEPT to make the XS opening even smaller!
Other than the head opening... These shoulder pads are thick, (a little heavier than other pads?) and appear to be very solid, well-built, and offering great protection.
I, too, had to return the pads to the local T/H store for a refund - disappointed.

Great if your head is the size of a grape...
Pros: Great value
Cons: profoundly narrow head opening
My son barely got them over his head. He has an average size head for a nine year old, not a Frankenstein-sized one like some kids. While the pad was everything we wanted as far as protective coverage and , he could not remove them without an adult helping him. It was like the "cone of shame" from the movie "Up". We will have to return this product, unfortunately.
