For comfort, the Newbery SPS this year are astonishing! The new knee groove is perfect and the instep is really well shaped. If I was keen on the appearance of traditional pads and they weighed a bit less I probably would have snapped these up.

Aero P1 have to be the way forward if you can handle the appearance and the shaping of the cavity suits your leg. Ridiculously lightweight with apparently very good protection and anatomically designed to realise the needs of the individual legs, something that no other pads really cater for

Ed - I find that with the bulky Puma gloves you have, they jkeep getting in the way of my pads, traditional Newbery County's - do you notice any difference between the two styles?

Also, Aero's go all they way round your leg, do they not? They sound really good, need to order mine!!!

I didn't like the Aero's at all, just felt wrong on me. Didn't feel padded or as if they were on my legs, they felt as if they were placed in front.

Not really sure on what pads I like the most, probably the Morrant ones.

But the protection is good, right?

Protection is fine, what I mean is that the inside padding didn't feel sufficient.

Which is down to the shaping of the cavity. Just how skinny are your legs Tom (if it's not too personal Laughing )?

Incredibly skinny, they just didn't sit right with me - but the quality of them felt nice and I can imagine them lasting a while.

Haha, well my chubby calves and I won't be worrying too much about it then! Being in control of the direction of rebound is another feature of Aeros that really appeals to me with the flat panel design as it can be pretty risky with the convex face of traditional pads

How do the Aero's fit around the thighs when your legs are flexed, just stick out?

I use the GN Powerbows (as you've probably heard too many times;) ) They are really well padded and go quite far round your legs.
