No probs, that's what I had thought - I just need to trim about 5mm off as it overlaps slightly with pump button. Thought I'd double check before I did!

Andy, Yeah i went down the route of I'd rather over supply velcro that supply not enough so it can be trimmed to fit.

It should be on all of them as it will help to centrally anchor the guard against the shell so its in the correct position should it be called into action. Last thing you'd want it the ball squeezing between the gap of the guard and shell so this was the method we have used to help the two marry together.

Thanks for that, ended up doubling the Velcro over so it will also fit my EPS version too! To be fair, once shaped the need for the middle strap of Velcro seems pretty limited as it's solid with just the side straps.

Nice piece of kit, hopefully will be lucky enough not to find out if it works :)

I really like mine
It looks really strong and the fact it can be bent into shape is really helpful

Couple of bit picky things however:
1: the cloth covering is slightly uneven on the top where it sits against the helmet on mine, so there is a small light gap on one side
gap on one side
cloth overlaps with the top of the helmet on the other

Also with the Velcro tab in the middle it doesn't really work with the traditional padded Ayrteks, so to remedy this I had to add some more of my own Velcro
This is because the tab has the harder side of the Velcro on, and this clashes with the harder Velcro that attaches the padding to the helmet. This also means that there is no place to attach the pad, so I had to use an extra piece of Velcro with adhesive on one side:
there you can see the extra piece of Velcro sticking out in the middle.

All in all however it looks and feels really solid, and although I hope I never need it I think I will definitely be safer using it

Thanks Ben

Have u tried twisting it to even it up and marry up better?

They are a working progress with the finishing as I'm sure you'll appreciate they are all currently made by hand so a bit like a hand made bat small variations may occur. I'll look at the Velcro issue as well tomorrow and see if we can come up with a better method.

Ahh didn't think about twisting it
Yeh I understand the hand made thing, nothing wrong with it, just a teeny bit playing up on my ocd

Few photos of a non-professional fitting!

I have an aversion to it flaring out so spent some time shaping it, thinks it needs a bit more at one of the edges but otherwise it's pretty flush.
