  1. 9/10 condition Mizuno 2QA-122 frame with Black TW Pads and new Zett throat guard. No dents, no scratches, barely used. Pads are 9/10 barely used. Great complete rig for a great price. Will ship for $105. Can send pics upon request. Thanks.

    In that case...it makes a really good addition.

    Good question...it does work. Only difference is it takes less Velcro to get around the unit. Now, there is some heft to it and considering how light the Mag is...makes it feel a bit out of balance. However, I think it is a really good addition to the mag up top.

    Why are we talking about this in the Mag thread? Anyway, I have it. I like it a lot. And despite the "50 games" i will use it beyond that. Its not as though at game 51 it is useless or worse...going to hurt you if you get hit.

    This CP will be the exact same as the Douglas and Wilson in terms of heat in the summer. I cant tell you they have ever been too hot for me as I am in shape. My favorite CP (the Champion) with the cloth like material covering the foam tends to stay wet unless aired out. The Wilson/Douglas and now the Diamond are all much faster in drying and I appreciate that in the summer months.

    better than the platinum overall. A better fit, better harness, extensions available and more affordable. People will like this, come to swear by it, and turn from what they were using. Others will have to look very very diligently to come up with a complaint. If you currently have a Gold or Platinum heres my advice. Keep them if youre not looking for a new CP. If you are shopping and love the Gold, get another Gold. If you love the Platinum, get the Diamond. Hope this helps.

    Grey piping is sharp around the padding and of higher quality than that of the Gold/Platinum. The CP is really really good. No need to use the extension. Its too long, i don't ever get hit there in the proper 45 degree stance, and it does NOT look good under the shirt. It is basically the Platinum minus the foam throat area extension. The harness is quality as it has elastic on the shoulder straps as well. It is a STEAL at $100.

    Is that the one that is being worn tonight? Not available retail correct? I will take it if it is.

    I have one of these on the way...we shall see. Not having Velcro attached plates is definitely NOT a dealbreaker. I have used the Gold and the Champion for the past 6 years. Honestly, I have NEVER removed the pads for cleaning. I will review the Diamond when it arrives.

    Right. How does Champion get to do it again?

    That is incorrect. "BLK" stands for black, which is identifying the pads and not the frame. However, it is now available from UA. Also, All Star's Instagram account identifies future deerskin padding. The Instagram account also states back in September that the matte black frames are "back" in stock. So now I'm wondering...maybe Jim and Chris did receive black frames from All Star? I mean, why or how would they take the time to have someone paint their frame?

    Whats the promo code?

    I mean, that I ordered LUC pads from All Star after I noticed how much of the "low" went away with the oversized pad sold with the 4000MAG. I had to request the LUC pads that come standard with the S7 because they are split allowing for the center vertical bar on the MAG.
