Now, that I am no longer laughing...

Having users cook a product before using can lead to such scenarios. I feel this is a fundamental flaw with cricket gear - they have to be prepared, in this case, cooked.

Sports gear should not have to be cooked, or knocked, or even oiled.

So please correct me if I'm wrong.

OP puts a product into a faulty oven and proceeds to heat the item, to nearly 40% over the recommended temperature. Then wants to complain about it being toasted, and that the poor manufacturer should be held accountable for said toasted item!

Think I must be misreading something here  :( ?

Im also seeing online that Gas Mark 3 is more like 160C?! A quiet message to George and Im sure he would be looked after but agreed that this thread is bizarre!

Maybe it has been misread or I havent explained it the best. The oven doesnt work correctly the bottom 2 gas  marks dont light the oven and it doesnt heat up fully so have to use a thermometer all the time to make sure stuff cooks correctly as we are currently waiting to having kitchen renovated and new oven fitted. I wasnt stating that this isnt my fault I repeated the process I did last time that worked fine on my last pair then I lost my inner thigh pad. I was simply asking if anyone else had any issues or it could be a thread to help anyone wanting to purchase these and avoid my potential mistakes. The only reason why I ask is if there could be something as simple as a tear in the outer skin before heating to cause this malfunction because what is puzzling me with it is if the oven was way too hot then surely the whole thing would bubble and melt not just one side out of 4 which made me think could there have been a tear and then when heating and expanding its shredded the skin and caused the outer layer to melt. Like Ive stated multiple times the product isnt ruined its cosmetically damaged all the padding inside is fine and it has mounded to my leg as it should but unfortunately the outer skin has shredded and melted a bit.

So half the time you're moaning cricket gear is too traditional and it all "sucks" due to the lack of customisation.

Now you're saying custom products are flawed because they have to be prepared.

You're not happy unless you're moaning, are you...

To be perfectly blunt, this is entirely your error mate. There is a reason the instructions had a temperature you were supposed to heat the thigh guards to. It is extremely unfair to criticize the product when its clearly user error. I have no idea why YOU feel dissatisfied - that right to feel dissatisfied belongs to George alone. He (and his company) didnt deserve this.

This would be like doing throwdowns with stones and rocks and then feeling dissatisfied with the bat manufacturer

Uncle @Batoff , I never said I hate customization. I am a proponent of "standardization" as in standardization of specs so that you can easily order or buy an exact (replica of a) bat without traveling 3000 miles.

You just can't see me happy without moaning about my supposed "moaning". :D And, I had a great a laugh reading this thread. I am still laughing!!!!! :D :D :D
