I wanted some extra protection added to my Douglas CP (which I love, by the way), so I sent it to Jeff Cook in Houston to have it modified. I agreed with the reviews about the concern with the gap in the shoulder caps and the lack of protection along the sides. Jeff knew exactly what to do and got it back to me very quickly.
Here's the finished product:
It still fits great and maintains the low profile. If you have a Douglas and want to make a few tweaks, Jeff's your man!
Have a few items Im looking to sell:
1) Brand new (without tags) M/L Wilson Gold. Only worn a handful of times, you can tell how new it is based on the fact the white tags on the protector still look new.
Asking $130 shipped
2) Used 13 black Douglas CP. This CP is not new and definitely has been used, but it still has life in it. The plastic is in good condition as well as the padding - padding probably has a few more years of heavy use in it before one might want to recondition. No rips in padding, clips and harness are in good conditon.
Asking $95 shipped.

Have an older (late 90s early 2000s) black Douglas CP and was looking for advice on whether the TW Retrofit would be a better padding "refurbishment" than sending back to Douglas and having them put on new Douglas padding. I know when I used a WV Gold with the TW padding I was surprised by the heaviness and density of the TW padding.
Also, has Douglas instituted a better and smaller shoulder gap modification piece than the one in this attached photo? I have seen the posts where folks took the black instep protector flap off their triple knee Wilson leg guards and riveted these to their Douglas but that's not something I'm interested in - or have the ability to do. I know people were doing the large Douglas flaps in the attached pic a few years ago but I was curious if Douglas does something that is smaller. All replies are much appreciated. Thanks!
Very nice Douglas 12" with Team Wendy Retrofit, and the original chest pad only. This was one of the first ever Team Wendy Douglas retrofits before they stopped doing the Douglas (they currently do them again, but stopped for a couple of years). This is the all black model from the 2010/11 time frame
This one was customized by Team Wendy by its original owner (Fittske24) and the extra padding was cut at the bottom making it more like an 11 or 11.5" Very comfy, collarbone plates formed nicely. This has an All-Star Delta Flex harness (shows some use but still fine) and t-hooks. Also comes with a NEW set of t-hooks from Douglas.
You'll get everything including the Douglas original chest padding.
$125 + shipping. US only, paypal only (friends and family)
