Shoyoroll Batch #7 7th Son Review
The Gi – Picking One Up
The 7th son was the second gi in the batch #7 series which was released for pre-sale in September of 2010 and finally hit the streets in December. It was a collaboration project between Shoyoroll and Luke Stewart, a world-famous tattoo artist. As I have mentioned in my other reviews over Shoyoroll gis, all of Shoyoroll’s gis are limited edition runs and are not reproduced. Once they are gone, they are gone. The 7th Son was released along side the other batch #7 gi, the Golden State. Much like the Golden State, I got this gi by sitting at my computer very early on the day of the pre-sale. The 7th Son was completely sold out in both size A2 and A1 in a mater of 20 minutes. The gi retailed for $169.95 from both distributors (BudoVideos and NHB gear). Now, however, the only way to pick one up is off of an auction website such as eBay. There are still plenty out there on eBay but they are selling for anywhere from $200 – $300 as of late. The only good thing about them being recently released is that most of those on eBay are all still brand new in the package and have not been used, unlike some of the older batches. Picking one up should not be that hard if you are willing to spend the money.
