Great review CD and I love the enthusiasm. I cant justify spending that kind of money on  thigh pads but id imagine its nice to try the top end stuff of everything. The most important thing with thigh pads for me is that they actually must stay in place and be comfortable. I dont face 85mph bowlers regularly so P2 Strippers should do me nicely.

With the amount thrown about on here buying and selling bats spending money on the best thigh guards out there and as far as I'm concerned and I'm sure buzz is this is it for rest of career as they last that long so worth it in time

Considering how long I took to review them I'd say ParcelForce :D

Great review CD good stuff,

What is it about thigh pads that so captures the imagiantion,

Apart from the fact they are thinnest, lightest yet most protective for me its their characteristic (malleable etc) then custom touch (my inscription, flags etc).

Fair enough, nor do I bat against Shoaib Akhtar, Shaun Tait et cetra.

If you take longevity in consideration then these will really last you for rest of your life, it is one time investment. Moreover, just like bats we don't really deserve the top tier gear but we buy it due to our sheer interest in equipments!

I too, like a few on here took the plunge and got myself a pair of Stretton Fox pads. I'm quite short and always found men's inner thigh pads too long but youth ones too short. So I asked George for standard men's inner trimmed down by 1 inch and its a perfect fit.

I've only used mine once in nets so far and IMO they are streets ahead of Aero in terms of protection, weight and movement.

Anyone else think that the remfrys are poorly finished for such an expensive product? I am loving the SFs

That's exactly what I thought. I needed a new thigh pad set after my Strippers ripped. Was going to get P1's instead of another set of P2s, so that would've been 80 on thigh pads in 2 seasons anyway

Well I've just got some new P1's from Paul at IJC but I really like the look and idea of these.. Plus, it's something different that others won't have. Set a trend :)
