  3. Didn’t forget about you. Here is what we clarified with our stock - measuring top of padding to bottom of padding: S/M - 11” M/L - 12” L/XL - 12 1/2” Obviously not the same, but also not drastically different. It definitely validates the biggest differences in sizes of the Wilson Gold CP are more to do with differences in width sizes rather than length ones.
  4. You’re welcome, and thanks for the good words. I had written an article at one point on the subject of getting the right amount of traction for the sport you officiate based on the field and conditions. The gist of it was the right amount of traction - not too little and not too much - was what you needed to perform your job and to avoid injuries. In essence, too much traction could open you up to injuries. I have bad knees as well, so I empathize. However, I wouldn’t make it worse with adding a potential muscle pull or other with cleats for umpiring, not to mention sore fe
  5. 4040s. Extremely narrow D. We used to carry, but too many returns due to sizing led us to stick with the size reliable umpire-specific MU950s. Consider the 4040 only if you have a narrow D. Still, the 3 @MadMaxand I mentioned have more traction than the 4040s IMO.
  6. Good suggestion on Huaraches. Our stock is good. And on sale. Downside is D width only. https://www.ump-attire.com/Products/NIKE-HUARACHE/Nike-Alpha-Huarache-Elite-2-Turf-Shoes Adidas Turf Hogs are discontinued. Very little stock and sizes with anyone. Scanning other retailers, I found the most remaining sizes here: https://officialsports.net/product/newadidas-turf-hog-lx-low-black-white/ Another really good suggestion on grip is Under Armour Turf but these are going fast (another solid new item that ends up discontinued too quickly by manufacturers). We have stock on most

  9. Interesting...was not aware. Will verify with our recent stock. One thing that happens on multiple gear is some retailers have stuff sitting around for years or they don’t rotate their inventory. Could be something from years back, but I trust your opinion enough to take a fresh look from our inventory.
  10. I confirm also that the black frames are all the same here, there and elsewhere. There is no glossy frame on AS Mags.
  11. Note also, we have been providing a free harness upgrade in the box since 4th Qtr 2020 with each W Gold CP purchase. Seems the right thing to do. May do with Platinums if we can get more stock in...had been limited for one reason or another.
  12. I wrote an article on lengths and sizes of Golds years ago that is still relevant. https://www.ump-attire.com/Blog/NOT-WHAT-YOU-THINK-Lengths-of-Wilson-Chest-Protectors
  13. Technically Adams XV HD. Looks like they changed the name and model number but not the CP. We’ll work on getting it righted online. Screenshot enclosed from 2021 catalog.
  14. Got it! Will share with NB the next time they work on plate shoes. Good stuff.
