This is a really strange development.. Okay, so it makes for better judgement. I can tell you I've had the feeling i didn't get my points multiple times during tournaments, but I still prefer the referees to these things. Look at the headprotector, it looks more like a ski-mask. I can't see myself with such a thing, I would probably get tired much quicker because my whole face is covered with fabric and i can't breathe properly. Also, I've heard that these bodyprotectors have sensors that react to impact. Funny thing is, the larger the protector, the harder you have to hit it. That's because the taller are usually heavier and they should make firmer contact to get a point. Agreed. But.. I'm kinda tall, I'm 1,94m and i normally get smaller opponents. This would mean that I have a larger protector and that would mean that my sensors would react differently to contact than my opponents with smaller ones. In my case it would mean that they have to hit me harder to get points than I have to hit them. Cool!
