^ 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.

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 tried the shoe insert (prototype), needs work, he is working on changes to it, I had to cut some of it away to make it more comfortable but still needs some adjustments.

100% agree, but would also never advise anyone to wait for an innovative product - because as you say, it may never make production. The Adidas thigh pads didn't used to be too bad from memory.

Robinsons thigh pads were all the rage some years back.

Personally I use an Adidas thigh guard and inner guard but as separates not in the form of the Aero design best fit for me and easily protect against 80mph also easy to keep clean

I'm in a similar boat, I currently have the TON Classic Thigh Pad set but it doesn't offer much protection, especially as a few times last season I was opening against 80mph bowlers.

If the new Strettons are cheaper I will go with them otherwise I will get a set of the moonwalkrs.

I currently use a Kookaburra set. Theyre spot on to be fair.

Tried the Aero P1 & P2 hated them!!! Way too bulky and not comfy!

I have tried the strettons of a mates and loved them. However, very expensive. I would wait for the new cheaper strettons after christmas.

@excalibur  - I use the aeros, and i like the idea and the set up, but I've always found them a bit bulky and restrictive.

Are you able to explain why the Kooks feel different?

I found the Moonwalkrs a bit bulky and went back to AERO P2s

Slightly thinner and generally better fitting ergonomically wise
