The right protection for the job
As you can see getting the right protection counts. The more you cut corners on on quality protective gear the more you subject yourself to harm.
You do not want a worst case scenario which may land end in you not playing the sport because of safety negligence. It might cost you a little bit more but rather spend that extra money on something you know is the right stuff than the quick fix cheap edition.
