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.

Hey all .....
Well, .....I did it, and I gave it a shot, but ....... I MUCH prefer the Douglas padding compared to the TW padding. I had my Douglas TW retrofitted but as you can see, ... I don't really like it, so .......here it is up for grabs. This TW retrofit is only for the chest portion (not the shoulder cups). I wore the TW's w/ the Douglas about 6 times (at the most)
Again, this is for the retrofit TW padding only that will fit a 15" Douglas. PM me, .... Paypal only (friends & family)
