  1. Sorry, I missed this one. It's gone. The Adidas pads, in my experience, are either a hit or miss. Meaning sometimes they're very comfortable to wear, while other times they are rough on my lip chewing it raw where it brushes against the black moisture-wicking material. It just depends from mask-to-mask. I guess that means quality control isn't top-notch.
  2. @Thunderheads sold, lock it up please.

    Throat guard for F3 Defender V2

    Was it a 4.5" or 6" TG? My thinking is similar, but I like the air flowing through the TG instead of every little breeze blowing my TG around. The Kubota Slugger (Spyder knock-off) has a nice curve to it that seems to keep it from swinging up into the throat. The weight isn't too bad, especially if you wear on a mask it's designed for which doesn't have a fixed chin guard.

    Adams XV-HDX received today thru hibbetts

    I'll second that Lindsey is great to work with. Separate issue for me, but she is a class act and handles everything professionally.

    Back Up Mask

    I've had several Adidas and a magnet sticks to them. This is the truest test of all titanium vs. titanal. A magnet should not stick to titanium, while it will stick somewhat to titanal as it has metallic parts within.

    Throat guard for F3 Defender V2

    samuraigears.com rakuten.com Search for Kubota Slugger throat guard. It's based off the SSK Spyder TG, but no longer made by them.

    Just curious - what are they getting for the pads from All Star? $40?

    The little white tag should have the size on it (S, M-L or L-XL).

    Experimental Mechanic for tag plays at home

    I did a face-plant right in front of home plate at a HS game this year. Catcher's foot tripped me up as I went past him to get a closer look at play at first base (solo game). I called the out from my belly amidst the laughter. :)
  12. Good luck. This is almost like looking for Honig's gear somewhere other than the Honig's website. While there are some retailers who carry GD products (and Honig's for that matter), their stock will be much more limited to size. A quick search shows me that there are a couple of places with GD pants available, but not in the size you mentioned. Sorry.

    Shin guards question

    I have worn these and they are super-light and comfortable. I just upgraded to F3's as well. Starting this summer, I saw some Sr. Legion players throwing mid-80's and I took one off of these Ump-Lite shin-guards. While I can't say that it truly hurt me, and it did not leave any bruises or discoloration, but it didn't feel good and I was conscious of having a case of "happy feet" whenever one short-hopped the catcher the rest of the game. My recommendation is to spend the extra money and buy what you know will protect you. It is much easier to stand-in and take a hit when you know that you have the right level of protection. If you buy cheap gear, then you'll be more apt to flinch when one comes close possibly causing you to miss something (and at the very least hurting your image to all who saw you).
  14. Are you looking for another option besides the Gerry Davis store itself? GD store link here: https://www.gerrydavis.com/mm5/category/150/product/BB-PT1253

    Apparel n' Equipment Guide v2

    Oops, no. From skin out - it's compression shorts, cup, jock, compression shorts again, then pants. I've tried to follow the advice of everyone on here in that regards. Perhaps, I'm just too fat and should lose some weight.
