I find that both are great to have. if you can't get both aim for knees. Hitting even a tiny rock when jumping/leaping can hurt. It might not sound like it will but it can.

i would never play paintball without knee and elbow pads since they will keep my joints safe and will let me play till im extremely old. and if i didnt wear them then i probably wouldnt be able to play paintball when i got older.

I play mostly indoor and the floor is cement covered in woodchips for traction. Oddly enough I am the only person I have seen there playing wearing kneepads. I have bad knees anyway and dropping to a knee on a hard floor can be painful. I went to a surplus store and they had a whole box of military surplus kneepads for 4$ each. Best $8 I ever spent. They also had hardshell elbow pads there but I passed them up. It kinda creeped me out that they had other peoples names written on them.

I have not played with pads before, but I am going to invest in some kneepads. For what they cost, they are definitely worth it. I am also hoping to sew a heavier material to the stomache of my ghillie. Other than those two areas, I would prefer not to have the pads.

knee pads are a must for me. I am always sliding or shooting from my knees.
