Perfect for High School QBs
August 6, 2013
I play quarterback for my high school and due to the lack of money for our football program, I bought these for myself. When I got them I was a little concerned with how far off the arms the pads were, making them look a lot bigger than they actually were. After our 2 week 2 - a - day camp, the pads broke in very nicely. They are VERY lightweight and have great moisture management. The only problem is that the holes on the back didn't line up with my Douglas Flak Jacket, but after drilling a new hole, it fit nicely. I took off all of the deltoid pads for better arm motion and these are by far the best pads on our team.
Easy to throw/run in
Great arm mobility
Break in nicely
Cons:Holes for back plates/rib guards are Schutt specific-- douglas makes much better rib and back plates
Took a while to break in-- not game ready right out of the box.
