I have decided to start putting useful info in the forum – the first topic being IBB mengane. I had used iron men for many years in childhood, then duralumin, followed by IBB titanium men for a while then most recently that with very thick pad on top of the men for about 10 years. It’s very difficult to say which mengane I prefer, as the design and other materials and shape all contribute to the comfort and then the environment of trainings also counts. But perhaps just for the men, I liked the IBB titanium without too thick pad on top.
Until I was asked by a beginner who is considering to purchase his first bogu set and queried about IBB men, I hadn’t known there are 5 types of IBB men today!
