  • Shorts - Pros and cons

    Anyone give me some general advice on compression shorts with cup vs jockstrap & cup.

    Any advantages or disadvantages?

    I find in general the shorts feel more comfortable, but the jockstrap holds the cup in place better.

      My own experience. Shorts: Pro's... none. Cons: they fit great till after a few washes then the crotch will start to sag and lets just say it feels wrong.
      I have tried Bike, shock DR and a few others and i never found any of them to be that good.
      after getting my first jockstrap "ever"... i now know why they are required in many major sports... they work. I for one can deal with an uncomfertable piece of equipment to save my boy's. It only takes one swift kick to make a man wear them everyday.

        Then there's always the belt and suspenders approach. The Nutty Buddy cup uses compression shorts with a jock over them and the cup slips in between. Watching the videos of guys taking 90 mph fastballs to the 'nads convinced me. So far, so good.

          I've only used the jockstrap. It works and there has been plenty of times where if I wasn't wear a cup, I would have regretted it!
