  2. All American CP? Paint chipping off padding

    Nothing will fix this problem...natural breakdown of the foam
  3. CP advice for college games

    I already made a new pad for it and still need to work out a few things but it is much better
  4. CP advice for college games

    I ran the +Pos Cobra out for a few games in the Fall and liked it Not my go to rig simply because it is not padded enough. Love the engineering and think it was well thought out in design and function. You can take the pad off and clean it. Plastic is fine and shoulders have adequate protection. It is light and not restrictive. I just feel that a better pad or materials used would or could be better. I like the idea of the D30 and have looked into seeing if I could perhaps have a pad made using the D30
  5. Any update for brd

    UIC is spot on Brent told me he was doing it
  6. CP advice for college games

    I have made harnesses for guys working MiLB all the way up to AAA wearing the Champion CP and including a few guys working MLB. If the Champion CP works for them it will work for you doing college ball.

  12. I use the hangers with the clips...just put both legs together and clip. The weight alone keeps them straight and any wrinkles will disappear
  13. I also was thinking the same for point 1. After wearing 2 pairs of Plate and 2 pair of base pants I have zero issues with shrinkage or the hem. Point 2. I wondered if taking a direct hit or a shot on the side of the pants would cause any problems like a scorch mark..so far no issues. I wash mine in cold water after every use and hang to dry, the crease stays and they look new every time I put them into the bag. I have also put them in the dryer low heat no issues but I do prefer hanging them after washing. 10/10 for me
  14. +pos chest protector

    Well here is my initial response to the +POS COBRA CP First thing I can say was the communication was first class and I picked up the box 3 days after ordering. The box was very light..hope the cp was in it...lol After inspecting the rig I was pleasantly surprised how much thought and design went into the product. Very low profile Protective fit was ok "13 Harness is a good idea but in its current format it is gimmicky and could be improved or buy a after market product that will work. I really liked the breast plate and clavicle protection. When first tried on I noticed that the clavicle plastic was sitting to square at the top. I thought I would need to use the heat gun to form the curve better. I added a UL harness and it did the trick. The cp comes with 2 side wings and a neck pad...side wings work well but no need for the neck pad. Same thing on the Force 3 The Skeleton separates from the back pad so it can be washed. Padding Not sure what is used but my only concern is not enough or what are the properties of the foam used. I guess I am willing to try it in a game to know because overall this is a decent product. Shoulder caps Well made and better than the F3 which I own V1 Gap Protection Excellent Breast Plate Excellent What would I change I would add a "1/4 foam (Memory) Think blue camping mat roll encased in micro mesh nylon or polyester. Why? Just to give you that extra feeling you are protected more. Harness The UL harness transformed the fit and feel of the rig and that is what it is about...rig stays where it is supposed to be Last Thought +pos made a very interesting CP and as a customer I am overall happy with my purchase. I am not into endorsing but this unit has a chance if customers/umpires can over look some of the past mistakes + pos made in dealing with us I score this CP 8/10 on fit protection and design I give 10/10 on customer service Ray Umplife
