Some of you know from my brief time here that I'm a big guy. Depending on the manufacturer, I wear a 46"-50" waist. I was shopping for some slider shorts and I ran into the same thing I ran into with pants and jerseys. The only companies that make any large sizes are Valken, PE and, to a lesser extent, Sly. All 3 make sliders in 3X. Their idea of 3X maxes out at a 38" waist. So I went looking at baseball and football slider shorts and I noticed the the differences are pretty drastic. No dick protection. Also the paintball sliders have padding all down the side of the leg whereas the football sliders have sections of padding and the baseball sliders don't seem to have any padding at all, rather thicker fabric in some places. Also, the sizing charts I found for football sliders show 3XL going all the way up to 50" waist in some cases.
Do any of you use the baseball or football slider shorts and how well do they work? They seem to be for a different, more laid down, fully extended kind of slide to try and reach a base or cross into the end zone instead of the hip slides I see in paintball.
Any input here would be appreciated. Also, suggestions on brands and types? So far, I like these and these for the placement of the padding and these for the price. Any other ideas or suggestions?
I've only got to try a couple of the "Super Guns" but Bob Long's reputation seems pretty good and my name being Tim, I'm kinda digging the "Timmy" nickname so I wanted to learn more about them. I've heard you need an adjustable reg for your tank, is that true? Is there anything else like that I might need to know when considering. What about old vs new? If i was looking at getting an old, say, Alias Timmy, what would I look for. If I was to save my pennies and get a nice shiny new, never been fired Dragon G6R Timmy, what should I know. So far, Wikipedia isn't being very forthcoming with info and Google seems to be flooded with bullshit, sales and shooting videos.
Here's muh stuff. There'll be upgrades down the line but this stuff works pretty good for now.
My MINI Pants are big as fuck for now, lol. 1 of my Jerseys. Though it doesn't really have anything but elbow padding so I don't see a need for it when it's hot out. My HK pack, my Profiler,my swabs, my tank and cover. And here's why I paid twice what I wanted to spend on a pod pack for this one. The nice, comfy lumbar pad. And a stupid selfie for giggles.
Let me know what, if anything you would improve and feel free to make suggestions.
