Gear alert: GD [Wilson] has a new CP!

And he has some leg guards to match. Here they are:




And they're all quite reasonably priced:

I know, I know, another Darth Vader/Batman-ish design. But they seem to look like they give pretty good protection for the money, and you must admit that they look a helluva lot better than the old stuff:

Pretty Effin Funny, Hooowaa?

To steal a line from Blackhawk Down. I showed the new gear post and the follow-up HSM post to go with the gear to a baseball player in my class. He laughed louder than I did.

I don't care who you are, now that's funny. (my apologies to Larry the Cable Guy).

I would like to see the CP and Shins in person. Maybe the Davis Reps will have some at the NCAA clinics.

I saw these a couple days ago. The chest protector sounds like it could be pretty comfortable. I like all the adjustments it has on it. I will probably bite and try one. I too am willing to bet they will be at the NCAA clinics

The one you made is way better, Pen, which sampling this vest will only confirm.

I'm now redlining my list to Santa, and putting my platinum on eBay. Finally an ergonomicly designed cp.

I'll be anxious to hear about the early reviews from the NCAA guys who start in the next couple of months. Are there any southern states that have HS ball going on right now or in the next month or two? If so, they'll have some input as well. Looks sharp!

Well, I'm interested in how it fits and covers, but I am not going as far as putting my Platinum on Ebay.

I agree, but who can tell besides you and your partner? (unless you wear the gear outside your clothes.)

Yeah!

Here's a picture of me from a couple years ago. But I got too much heat and got a Platinum.

I am somewhat impressed with the thought the GD boys put into these items. But, I will never wear anything else but my Carlucci, and 17" shin guards are not long enough for me.

I look forward to the evaluations on the gear.

As an aside, I will be at the Chicago NCAA meeting next year. This is the 1st one I have ever been to. Do they have a lot of people selling gear at these meetings? What are these meetings like?

And as we get close to the gathering, let's see if some of us could meet sometime and break bread together, or drink beverages of our choice...

Do you have this one for sale, since you have moved up to something "better"? I like the way this one looks....

JJ

Oh, and are those the keys to the batters box in his right hand?
