I'm also taking from this that he should only wear the Riddell with a plate coat... or not at all. Lol

Looks like I have the right company, right padding, wrong style of shoulder pads to make this work. Unless I want a big gap right over my heart. Too bad.

Waitaminute... @Maineac, are you looking to use parts off this set of Riddell Power TF shoulder pads to rehab a Riddell Power BB CP, or are looking to retrofit these TF (tackle football) pads and turn them into a BB CP?

If the first, possible.

If the second, sure it can be done. Ever look at an original West Vest? You can see the football origin, and how they remedied the laces gap.

I was kicking around the idea of doing the second one.

This is fairly straightforward. All you / we will need is a panel of ABS plastic, 4 Chicago screws, 4 rubber washers, a drill, a small round file, ans a sharp utility knife.

Need a drawing, or do you see the Platinum or Original WestVest in that photo like I do?

Actually, could use a drawing.

I just saw a pretty nice looking pair of Riddell football pads for SUPER cheap (read that as only $10). And I have a WV Gold that seems to be more trouble to sell than its worth.

So why not turn it into a Frankenstein chest protector.

If it is easy, I wouldn't mind ideas on how to do it?

I’ll draw one up soon, but it involves taking that piece of spare plastic, drilling four holes that line up with four holes you’ll drill in the shoulder pads carapace. Ream the holes into slots (so that when the plate is compressed by an impact, the plate flattens and slides laterally), place a rubber washer between the plate and the pads carapace, then pass the Chicago screw through and secure.

The only thing I would be... concerned(?)... about is how to fasten the set so that it stays in place snugly. May have to replace, augment, or improve the elastic straps and T-hooks.

Wouldn't the D-loop rigging you did with the Schutt suffice?

Another idea comes in this form. It is a Riddell catcher's chest protector with the breast plate of a Gold and the shoulder caps from a Force3.received_10212600917808659.thumb.jpeg.a02cfce3f61f5de74803d344d7c34582.jpeg

I wonder how hard this would be to do? Seems like the hardest thing would be to track down the shoulder caps.

The owner of this beast sent me, pretty much, step-by-step photos on how he did it. And it looks awesome!

Where did you send it to?

http://www.footballshoulderpads.com/

There are a few things that are not quite right with the pad tho.

The bottom left triangle piece - the velcro is a little too high and pushes the plate up into the main section of the CP.

also - The bottom plate (where you attach your harness) is too high as well. It goes under the big bottom plate. SMH

Maybe a little rushing with the job is my guess.

Makes it sound unusable. Damn shame. To prevent you from getting hurt in a game, I’ll take it off your hands. Just let me know

      Does anyone have experience with this CP?  I was doing some research for a new CP yesterday and came across a new web site, allamericansportsshop.net.  Is this brand the same as Champion?  I assume it is but with a new logo.  I have never seen this model before.  I may have just overlooked it. This looks like a much better CP than they have made in the past. Looks very solid.  I would like to see what the harness looks also.  I was about just about set on going with the Schutt XV HDX until I saw this.  They are the same price, but this looks a like it would fit the body a little better. Any suggestions?

      I just got a new all american CP in 13. Has anyone had an issue with the wings feeling like they are jabbing you in the armpit? 
    • By sd181612
      I just got my Doug (“treat yoself” birthday present....with some help) in 13”. However, I can’t seem to get the shoulder pads over, ironically, my shoulders; they dry looking forward and it looks bulky with the majestic(Sz M) on. Any tips???
       
      Thanks!
