I've tried the p1s and p2s but really hurt on impact facing 80mph

That's interesting. Was it against Bola or human bowlers?

I used P1s when facing Bola and I thought the protection was adequate.

In my opinion Remfrys are far superior to Strettons.

Any links to some of your stats @FraserJames123? Be great to see!

I see. Well, for the brands you mentioned, try before you buy as their prices are extremely high. Personally, I found Aero P1 adequate against high speed Bola and human bowlers.

When you consider the old Stretton's were about as custom as you can get, then that seems strange if Remfrys beat them for comfort.
I known I was overwhelmed when it came to SF options. Maybe giving too many options to people, compared to someone narrowing down the chances to get it wrong plays a part.

I couldn't make the SFs work for me.  I understand the concept of being able to mould them to your body shape, but it just doesn't work as they don't stay in the shape you mould them to.  As a result they felt uncomfortable and moved around a lot.   The inner thigh pad was particularly poor for moving around.  The times I netted in them, I was thinking more about the pads moving around than concentrating on the ball

You need to find out the answer to this otherwise your overall question is a moot one, unless you are a very very tall 14 year old because the new SF sets only go down to a small, which I have and they will be far far too big for you.

I wouldn't be buying expensive thigh pads until you stop growing if I were you.
Buy the off the shelf products for now.
