Look about a thousand times better than the originals. I may have to look into one to keep those concussions at bay.

Yeah, but that's the paint job IMHO.
I thought they look good as well.

IN the past year my high school team has lost player permanently and 2 others with severe concussions. I wont blame it all on the CPX/CPR's they wear, but any team cant afford those injuries.

One of the kids got hit (legally) from the front and all the clips that hold the cage in face cracked leaving him with 2 split eyebrows and a broken nose.

We'll be switching to the XP next year for sure. For all the dowsides I have heard (weight mostly) the protection factor outweighs them all. The fact that Notre Dame recently switched to them speaks volumes IMO
