All,

I am thinking about trying out the Bas bow 20 20 moulded batting pads, ones similar to https://onlinestockist.com/bas-bow-20-20-moulded-cricket-batting-pads-men-s.html

My only concern is since these are ambi, do they have sufficient protection on the sides of the pad compared to traditional batting pads, particularly around knee area. Any one had issues specifically with respect to protection (or lack of) on the sides?

Thanks!

Epic pads.

Remind me of my all time favourites the GM Ravi Bopara ones!!!

Iíve toyed with ordering the very same ones.

Or these that are EXACTLY like the Ravi ones

Are these very lightweight (like the morrant ultralites)?

Would like to try some like those but morrants are either hens teeth or really expensive so alternatives would be good.

Ya really lightweight. From some of the earlier reviews, I can see that there are folks who either like it very much as a result or others who dislike since they seem to not be flexible and bulky compared to regular pads.
For me, the pics look there isn't enough side on protection due to maybe the ambi type, so not sure. Also, I am not near a store to be able to try them on, so I ll wait.

Gurujames:
I have had the same morrants ultralites for the past 5 or 6 seasons and they are brilliant. They are far lighter and less bulky than traditional pads and are certainly no less flexible. The lack of side wings is no issues as I have never been hit there (why would you be hit on the side of the leg?). The only issue with the morrants is that everything sticks to them, grass cuttings, fluff etc, though this is a minor drawback.
I would certainly give moulded 2 strap pads a go, especially if you are a little older and slower and would benefit from a lighter weigh and the same quality of protection.
