I was just on www.ump-attire.com, and for the Cobalt chest protector, they have one new photo which looks like an improved version that fixes the lower abdominal plate issue (flappy wings on the lower sides) for many of us over 6 feet tall who need (or at least want) to use that lower abdominal plate.  Anyone have any intel??  Here's the photo from the website.

I hav3 and love it, though in giving it a break and using my Wilson platinum atm

Why, because the sofa-cushion foam is rather insulating, and you're kept nice and warm like a blue sea lion on these chilly winter night games? 

The great big yellow "W" stands for Walrus.

"Goo goo, ga-jube.." does that make the platinum wearers The Eggmen?

I can vouch for the Cobalt as well. Though I do not use the extention. So it is not a problem.

I stopped using the extention last year, the sides were rolling outwards and it looked weird, yes I'm a bit vain, but I can admit it ;)

Though I will say the week I started using the cobalt (w/ the extention) I took 3 gut shots with no issues

Team Wendy one of the last before they stopped making them.

SJA, I'm not directing these questions at you, merely using your CP as the talking point for the group... 

See, Team Wendy was hamstrung and restricted with what they could do. They had to replicate the layout of the existing foam vest supplied by Wilson, or Douglas, or Riddell, or whichever CP was sent in. And, I'm going to tell you, the Wilson units have several major design flaws. 

The most egregious one is the joining seam between the shoulder pauldron and the vest. Instead of running a connecting spline between the shoulder arch plate, to/thru/under the ailette (gap protecting flap), and to the pauldron plate, they floated the pauldron plate atop the pauldron pad, and joined them with that seam. Well, not only does that seam not position the shoulder pauldrons in ideal spots for every wearer, but that seam wears out, rips, and you're left without a shoulder pauldron until it can be repaired. And, because the foam thickness is way too much and the same as the foam vest, you get this hulking, bulky "linebacker" look. 

The same can be said about the pectoral wings. Granted, the most recent versions of the Gold make those removable, but really... we had to wait 20 years for that??!! 

With the carapace almost entirely dependent upon the foam vest to anchor to, and the foam vest being one thick slab of couch upholstery foam, one really cannot customize the fit of the CP all that easily. Then, too, Wilson had them produced in China, and then crammed in quantities into containers for overseas shipment, which resulted in them flattening out when arriving stateside. And, since most amateur umpires didn't know how a CP was intended to truly fit, the CP was pressed into service and worn much like a shop apron. 

TW didn't have the latitude to engineer a solution. They could merely recreate what was there, and make it slightly better.
