Looking for some shin guards


Recommended Posts

Hello to all! Hope this find you all doing well and enjoying your season. My shin guards have completely rusted out at the buckle and broke the strap, thus making them practically useless. LOL! So, I thought I would jump on here and see if anyone had any decent guards that they would like to sell. Ive got a growing family at home who eats like a barn full of thoroughbreds. So, I'm on a budget at the moment. I'm not looking for anything fancy, just a quality pair to keep my bird legs safe with a little life left in them. Lol. I would like the single knee style instead of the style that fits around your thigh.  Thanks for your time and thanks for looking. PM me if you got anything. Thanks!

Yes, as @Big_Mac14 points out (and I reviewed over here), the best shinguards to get are the Force3 Ultimate Shinguards. They'll be the last shinguards you potentially ever buy.

But, you said the "B"-word (no, not Balk), and thus, these come to mind:

​and

and
http://www.pluspos.com/baseball-umpire-equipment/leg-guards/bb313

The Champros are good. The Diamond DLG's have the removable metatarsal guard, and have snap-closure hardware. The +POS BB313's have the patella plate (which is very good to have).

I would recommend the Honigs K2010. They are around $60. They come in 5 sizes. They buckles are plastic and won't rust. The padding is removable and washable. They are not low profile but they are 100% bullet proof.

I have a pair of old wilsons that I'd sell for shipping+ $.01 they are a little beaten up but if your just looking for something to get by they might suit you. If your looking for something that will last and you will love all the suggestions above are better options.

      So I opened a topic earlier about a new CP.  I decided to go with the Schutt/Adams.  My next question is about the Schutt Scorpion leg guards.  They look good, but I can't find any sites that have reviews. I also can't seem to find any pics that show the pads on the inside. Has anyone used these?  I am brand new to the college level.  Just attended MAU clinic. Just got assigned my first college game, fall ball.  So I need college level equipment.  I have read good stuff about the champion leg guards, but they look extremely big and bulky.  What does everyone think about wearing good quality catchers shin guards?  I have done that the last few years at the high school level and have been fine.  I"m talking about college now though.  I found a good deal on some Mizuno Samurai shin guards that look adequate.    I'm not into spending an arm and a leg on my equipment.  I like to stay under a hundred.  I might drop over that on a mask, but I'm pretty frugal otherwise.
