I am buying new knee braces tomorrow, no local dealer to try them on at so I must go for it online. I bought and returned a set of the EVS RS8 Pros but they were too bulky for my taste so I am going with the POD MX Series.

My question: is there a noticable difference besides weight and price when comparing the Pod MX (Fox) K700 and K300 models. I know the 300 is about a 1/4 pound heavier per brace and they are made from glass/plastic instead of carbon fiber, can a person notice this weight differnece? Also are the 300's as narrow as the 700's? I hear they 300's are a touch wider.

I can get the 700's for about $250 more (for the pair) than the 300's, are they worth the extra dough?

Thanks for the hand Pepes!

There is virtually no difference in the two braces. I have a K700 for my left knee, and have tried on the 300 for my right. They feel identical and I couldnt notice the weight difference. I have a close friend who works for Fox and he has said that the goal behind the 300 was to make an identical, but lower priced brace to the 700. Which ever one you choose, you will love it!

So you dont think the 700's are worth the extra $250?
