    So I used my Koral classic gi for the first time today and LOVED it.. I was wondering how the atama gi's fit in comparison.. Lookin to buy another one and retire my renzo to backup

    i'm not a huge fan of atama...... after the bullshit price increase last april, i aint going there anymore. But it's a decent gi, nowhere near as good as it once was (heard that they use crappier material now)

    I'd go for the koral, that thing fits like a glove on me. Gameness is nice too, but other folks aren't so hot about em. I'd go for the koral again if i were you. jiujitsuprogear.com DO IT!

    i love my atama and hck gi's.
    have a koral, but i paid much more for that one and dont feel that it was worth it.

    I have 2 Atama's from before their price increase. I like my Fuji as well. My 4th gi is a Gameness but the pants suck so I got another pair of Atama pants.

    For me: Fuji=Atama>>>Gameness

    I've been debating on a 3rd Gi... (First was a Ouano. Second was a Koral...)
    I was thinking about trying out the Vulkans Summer Gi... anyone got inputs/suggestions?

    I really like Atamas. They dont shrink as much as a Fuji. I also own a Keiko Sports Gi but beware with those.. the inseam hangs too low.

    Dont own any Korals... yet.

    i have had a koral and vulkan

    i love my vulkan

    the koral was great too... but the vulkan is just as good imo and a bit cheaper

    although when i first started using the vulkan, after it got all sweaty it felt like the gi got stretched out a bit.. like the arms became longer had more room in the back... after a month or so the "stretching" be came minimal

    but i prefer a more roomy gi any way i am a fairly short and wide ... not really fat more stocky ...
    i am gonnna buy another vulkan... just make sure to hang dry

    Heavily patched gis make you look like a NASCAR driver. :big grin:

    I've got 2 Kikskin single weaves and a Gameness single weave. I like the Gameness, but :love: the Kikskins.
