hey have they changed at all through the years? I see some 09 models on ebay. Rather pay extra 30 bucks if they made worth while changes...

for what it's worth, i have the Thor guards and am looking to switch to the Fox guards. the Thor guards kill my legs; i had to go see a doc because of the velcro "wrap" fastening system they have. i ended up with "contact dermatitis" and itching and scratching my legs to the point they bled. quite literally. i broke my wrist early January (9th) so my legs have healed up since I haven't been riding.
Oh, another point: the Thor guards have a dual hinge system. Neat! or so you think: the bolts used for that extend out the side and have ruined two pairs of pants: one Thor, one Fox. not cheap pants, either. Wore through the leather grip patches, and, consequently, destroyed my graphics.
Things to consider!

Like said before a knee sock is a must. Im liking the Fox ones.....just a big ass sock goes way past the knee. IF you feel gay try banging the lady in them. No joke.
The hinges are intrusive and if i didnt already have holes in my pants at the knee section i see ones coming soon.
The knee pad felt very big and fat compared to previous Fox Raptors (discontinued cheezy $25 dual hinge pad)
Its now been a couple track days and a hand full of glamis weekends. Im liking the knee pads and would def recommend them. Cant wear them on bare skin. I had to stuff a sock back behind my knee for the first 2 camping trips.
When i buy new riding pants ill figure out a solution to the hinge rubbing a hole problem. Off the top of my head i see myself going into a craft store and looking for some type of fabric with a sticky back.
