    +1 - good reminder how one's reflex is to put their hands out = gloves are important!

    The slow-mo came out great - how many frames per second were you originally shooting it with?

    Yep, those Fox gloves were awesome, not a single scratch on either hand. My jersey, on the other hand....

    Yeah, I was wearing my 661 Rage Knee and Elbow pads. They did their job on the initial blow but slid down when I was scrubbing and that's how I got my cuts. It could've been worse without them.
