In the market for a new thigh Pad
« on: December 05, 2018, 07:05:57 PM »

Alright guys. My Aero p1 have died on me looking at getting a new thigh pad. Was looking a a Remfry but the shipping to the uk a bit to much . Anyone used stretton fox ? Or anyone got any other recommendations. Thanks

If you can wait until next year I believe that George from Stretton Fox is currently working on a new type of Stretton thigh pad that would be half the price of the current offering. He told me that they'd be coming to retail some time in 2019.

Supposedly new super thin off the shelf Stretton's coming next year, my Aeros have finally reached the point where washing no longer removes the smell so I'm tempted to wait for them... Though as ever with Stretton and new products, who knows if/when they'll materialise.

Edit, beaten to it ^

Yeah I believe the new Stretton's are currently taking over George's life as I've put in an order for a custom set and it's around a 6-7 week lead time atm, although I'm still in the template sizing process.

His revolutionary leg pads (and gloves?) were supposed to hit the market sometime in the past (?) but never materialized.

His shoe-insert/toe-guard was supposed to make our lives better but the product never saw the light of day, I think. Any one using them?

Buy an off the shelf thigh guard and be done with it. Aeros are a great product and so under rated.

I have an Adidas one which was about 20. And Ive used it once as I dont wear a thigh pad. They all seem the same to me and I think they are much of a muchness just with different branding.
The Remfreys and Strettons are different, the others to my very uneducated mind appear all the same.

Would definitely look at the new Stretton Fox offering when available, looks interesting. I use the Aero P2 and it's more than up to the job.

Not a big fan of someone trying to bring new, innovative products to the game then?  :)

^ I love new products when they actually make it to the market! This guy's products didn't show up and there was a ton of hoo-haa on CBF about the pads, gloves and shoe-insert/toe guard.

There are thousands of products which never make it into production, especially when these are 100% new products/materials. I think StrettonFox should be applauded for trying to innovate, rather than just label up the same old pads etc like everyone else.
