All Star System 7 CP

Recommended Posts

So I switched from my beloved Schutt XV to the All Star System 7, for various reasons. And as usual when we have a new CP, I was eagerly anticipating a 'good shot' off of it, which I got Monday.

Coaches and Catcher estimate 85-87 mph (it's where this kid normally sits) four seamer, barely knicked the bat and hit me hard, directly on the right clavicle. Only felt that something impacted the CP, sounded like a shot gun went off, but didn't feel ANYTHING underneath. I was impressed. 

I bought it for the clavicle protection, and it didn't disappoint! Catcher was sure I should be hurt, he asked me twice, but I literally didn't feel anything.

Once I put the straps on to hold the shoulder caps from sliding back, I won't wear anything else

I might need to know more about this? Aftermarket home-made deal? Or something All Star sells?

I had a shoe repair guy help me with it - he charged me $20.  These straps prevent the shoulder caps from sliding back and creating a gap where the ball can penetrate.

I have one, and I'm convinced, outside the raft, or working behind the pitcher, that it offers the best protection to date.

It is a bit bulky, which may be a turn off to some. Protection is always a trade-off. Comfort vs. style vs, performance.

I do like the removable pads, the center channel for air flow, and the harness. Plus, for me the shape covers my last ribs, which many don't.

I took the removable pads pads off of mine. I did sort of the same thing with regards to the shoulder caps except I used the straps that hold/adjust them to cover the gap. I shortened the front strap and it pulls the caps around so it won't slide back. Love mine, great coverage and it NEVER moves!

      Looking for a new chest protector because my old one is a soft shell. Any recommendations on what I should and should not get and where can I get a good deal on one? Any advice helps thanks!

      I’m looking for a good low profile chest protector with SMALL shoulder pads. I’m about 5’6, 160 with an athletic build. I currently wear the Champion Body Armor, which is a good fit, but the shoulder pads are too big. I’ve tried the Wilson Gold, but the shoulder pads still seem too big. Maybe I’m trippin’, but I think I look like a linebacker. Any help would be much appreciated.

      Hello all,
      I have been using a West Vest Gold for the past couple of seasons and while the protection has been phenomenal, the whole thing feels bulky and does leave my lower ribs (it is the largest sized of the three sizes Wilson offers) and abdomen exposed. With that in mind, I'm looking at getting a Force 3 protector after reading some of the smaller reviews in places like ump-attire, but was looking to see if anyone had anymore feedback that was a bit more in-depth. Primarily using it for varsity level high school ball
       
      Any help/feedback would be appreciated greatly
