Obviously you're a believer in good bumpers and I appreciate the feedback. If you were to group Eleiko, York, and Werk San as Tier 1 bumpers, who would produce Tier 2 bumpers? And what kind of difference would I expect to see between 1st and 2nd class gear? Durability, quality, other?
For a set of gear that will used by a single person, is there that much of a difference?
