$180 Free Shipping not a bad deal.

calculated shipping from Chicopee, Mass. And this is Saraboo43's only item for sale on ebay. Wonder why Jason wouldn't take it back? Maybe it's monogrammed.

Ok, someone fess up....

Monogrammed ? It's a CP ! What difference would that make, unless the purchaser was a Smitty who wore it OVER his shirt ? And really, if that was the case, that Smitty isn't gonna pony up that kind of coin for a CP.

Was at an umpire camp this last weekend. Friend had the Unequal CP. Other friend put it on and was punched (just a hard atta-boy punch) by someone. He felt it. Doesn't seem like a good endorsement.

Maybe you can feel it but it doesn't do damage...I dunno. More than likely it simply needs hard plastic shells to not absorb as much, regardless of the kevlar.

I agree not a good endorsement.I saw my first one two weeks ago and it doesnt look like it can absorb the impact of 90mph fastball. And i dont get what is all the fuss with redoing ur hardshell wtih team wendy padding inside. For the cost and having supposingly replace the paidding yearly not a good deal. Anybody that has any west vest hard shell chest protector knows the protection is the best and really dont need to spend the extra cost for team wendy padding. Jus my two cents worth

For me it's not moding for the sake of moding. I agree that the West Vest line of protectors provide outstanding protection. However the padding is quite bulky. Most who use these protectors will tell you that they require a plate shirt and a base shirt to wear these protectors. That may be fine for some, but for guys who work in multiple conferences or multiple leagues, that means double the amount of uniforms. For conference guys shirts after you get them all logo'ed, patched, and numbered up, they can push 50-60 dollars. Now factor in being in multiple conferences (Which is not uncommon) Now you are buying 3-4 different sets of uniforms.

A smaller profile chest protector eliminates the need to have to purchase that extra shirt or two. As far as the TW retrofit, it transforms the bulky west vest into a sleek form fitting protector that is probably more effective than with the stock padding that is 3 times thicker. So for me its totally worth the extra coin to protect my heart without compromising my appearance while in uniform. I wouldn't buy into that 1 year replacement recommendation. That padding will last longer than the stock padding in my opinion.

Agree Fitts...they're just covering themselves by recommending replacement annually.

I think this must be somebody associated with Unequal, they are now selling another, how would somebody have 2 this early out after you guys waited so long?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Unequal-Technologies-Umpire-Chest-Protector-/180989091734?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a23ca5f96

The description says new, unused and unworn so it shouldn't be a returned item.

I'm looking at new CPs as I transition into higher level ball, but not interested in the unequal chest protector as I haven't seen anybody say that this is the best thing ever.

      EQUIPMENT FORUM ATTENDEES (primarily new folks)
      Warren (Umpire in Chief) works tirelessly to make sure this site is beneficial for everyone.  Please, let's help Warren keep the site clean by utilizing the SEARCH function before asking questions.   Most of what you're going to ask on this forum has "probably" been discussed, sometimes ad nauseum, and re-creating a NEW post on a subject that's been talked to death just clogs the site up with unnecessary threads.
      NEWBIES:
      First and foremost ...... Welcome! 
      Please feel free to ask questions and LEARN,... we're all here for that purpose for sure, HOWEVER .... please make sure the information you're looking for isn't already available to you on the site by doing a simple search before posting a question, shown below:

      Then, choose where you want to search, either THIS FORUM, or you can use GOOGLE as shown below:

       
      The attachment below shows a sample search for a Wilson Mask in the Search area.  Both Google and "this forum" produced the same results.   HINT: You can use quotation marks around the words you're looking for to create a 'phrase' which can fine-tune your search.

      Here is the 'results' page showing 109 'hits' and 5 pages worth of information.

      This information can be used for all forums, but we have found that 'searches' help the most on the equipment board.
      Finally, this post is NOT MEANT to be rude or condescending.  It's simply a good way to ensure that information we have on this site is maintained in the same area instead of having great info and answers to common questions scattered all over the place.  Nothing less, nothing more, I promise!  
      Enjoy, and happy reading!

      Hey everyone,
      So I have a Force 3 V3 CP which I absolutely love. However, one problem I have is the edges of some of the plates are protruding out. I want to try and form the plates to better contour the CP to my chest. Any suggestions, methods that have worked??

      I’m ready to sell it. Haven’t worn it in 2 years. Nothing wrong with it. I’m just a runt and my baby sized WV Gold fits me better. So, let me know. Price is firm. I’ll pay shipping to lower 48. Sorry Canada, Europe and Alaska-Hawaii. Your shipping costs are outrageous.

      Maybe I’m a little bit crazy, but aren’t we all a little bit “crazy” when we decide to umpire? I have a Nike (used for about 3 games) with black TW pads, with black tape), MLB harness. I’m looking to trade it for a Power “L.” Maybe I’m dreaming, but I’ll give it a shot. Link to pictures below:

      These shoes  (black and white) were worn for two games and they’re pretty much brand new. The only issue is some clay stains I wasn’t able to get out. PM me with offers. The pictures are in the link.
