Judging by this thread @Ayrtek Cricket is retiring on the profits from new box sales this year!! 😉

Haha if only, sadly due to the nature of the product it isnt particularly cheap to make compared to other more traditional guards. It has however helped with the purchase of more D3O thatll be integrated into the air liner of the new helmets in 2018 👍

A bloke i play with doesn't wear a box, his reasoning being "i've never worn one before."

He got hit in the nuts once in a friendly much to the amusement of the rest of the team. Two balls later, bang, straight in the onion bag again! Still doesn't wear one!

I've bought an ayrtek one for this season as i've been using my old box for hockey (which i've been roped into playing). Haven't been hit yet! Though last year i had one belted into them during catching practice and i couldn't walk for about 2 days, it was a worse pain than breaking my ankle! Would never play without one.

What exactly is d30? Will it make your helmets heavier?

I have 2 I use - these are identical and were off this forum similar to the D30 ones in style. They are a few years old now.

Its marginal but the 15-20g weight gain overall will see improved impact absorption as a result. D3O is an High impact material that has no memory and therefore can sustain multiple impacts. Best bet is to check out their website as lots of other industries and well know. Sports brands use it in a whole host of applications for protection.

Got my box when I started playing at 12, now 38 and still use the same one. Only been hit once, and that was when keeping wicket (which Ive only done 4 times), my word that took the wind out of my sails!

I started playing cricket in 2009, so I am using that same box along jock straps.

Two weeks ago, I forgot my box home and I bought one from the store, used it and then threw it away.

The things discussed on here??

I use a cheap sports direct box, must be 10yrs old
And the bloke who doesnt use one?? Seriously your mad, Ive seen blokes carried off after being hit whilst wearing one , never mind without.

Ive been using the same one for about 15 years. I recently bought a new Ayrtek D30 one but its much bigger than the old one and I havent found a way to make it feel comfortable yet

Ha no, everything fits in it just fine, but it extends much further down than the old one so its kinda nestled right between my inner thighs all the time. A bit awkward.

I know exactly what you mean! Used mine for indoor cricket last week and is awkward to run in
