Is there such a thing?

 

Yes. Team Wendy used to retrofit shin guards as well as CPs

Wow!  I've never seen a pair of them. I had my Platinum done, but never thought about asking for leg guards.

The cost was $109+S&H.   I'm not sure a lot of guys went for it, so I'm sure this is rare.

 

It's all found here, about halfway down the page:

NOTE: THIS IS AN OLD EMAIL FOR INFORMATION PURPOSES ONLY.  TW NO LONGER DOES RETROFITS.

There’s an old video of Ed Rapuano showing off his TW retrofitted shin guards (believe they were Honigs K20s) and retrofitted CP (believe it was a really old WV).  I believe at the time Ed was doing endorsements for them.

I also don’t recall a lot of chatter on these boards of guys taking advantage of the shin guard retrofits.

I missed out on both the CP and shin guard retrofits by a month each!:Facepalm:

Dont feel bad.  Lots of guys have gone back to stock padding.

I wouldnt have. Always hated how bulky the WV are. It's why I have spent WAY to much money to find a thinner mouse trap.

I did a retrofit on a Gold and Platinum.  Felt the TW padding was very heavy and dense, like slipping on that bib when getting x rays.  I wasn't nuts about it and ended up selling all of them and went with a stock Douglas.  For mask pads, the TW are awesome but the CP retrofits weren't nearly as good.

I have done lots of work on TW retrofit cp's and I can to the same conclusion that if you take a shot you will feel it and some will hurt.

Some of the pro umpires confirmed this.
