    Default Groin Protectors and Protective Cups

    What brand and what types do you guys roll with, if any?
    I'm trying to decide on getting one of these:

    Under Armour Heatgear Core Vent Compression Short & Cup from Title Boxing

    Shock Doctor Compression Shorts with Flex Cup from Title Boxing

    Shock Doctor X-Fit Support with Flex Cup from Title Boxing

    Any recommendations? Thanks!

    I just rock some cheap cup I bought at Sports Authority a long time ago. lol, I think the brand is Bike? I wear it over a pair of underarmor shorts, works fine.

    its just a cup, I wouldn't lose sleep over it. but Shock Doctor and UA are very good brands. just get whatever looks the most comfortable to you

    I know some guys that roll without a cup, but I fear the knee-on-balls guard pass too much to go without one

    I'm currently using a hockey jock with the cup, and it's pretty uncomfortable haha. It gets pretty damn hot down there too lol

    I use Bike as well.. it is OKAY.. not the most comfortable thing ever... but not uncomfortable either.

    If anyone throws out some good suggestions, maybe I will switch


    And I fear the balls on the chin when I triangle someone.. so I wear one

    In my years of wrestling in the past I never wore a cup. Sometimes I felt would of been nice to have one on though lol.

    haha yeah I have never worn one in my life. I think about 12 years of football and now a little over a year of BJJ.

    Pff. Save your money on the over-priced and expensive stuff. More marketing than substance.


    Steel cup is the way to go. It's actually a lot more comfortable than you would think, all but indestructible, and you'll never need to buy another one. About $30 if I remember right.

    i never used on until about 2 months ago i did an arm bar off my back with my opponent standing. i crushed my right ball and it burned and was excrutiating. needless to say i began to wear a cup all the time after that.

    I like the shock doctor compression short. I've had mine for like a year and it's lasted pretty well. If it gets uncomfortable, you just pull the cup insert out and you're just wearing underwear.

    Yeah I got the shock doctor, but not the compression short, just the supporter. It's working great!
