Why o Why did I decide to buy the 7's ones..which I have found out they have a fault or something  :Ceek: Trust me to do something like that. Oh also, erm, I think my legs are too thin and even when I have the bar at the bottom it still reaches like my knee..so the extra bulk of my pads makes it uncomfy, any padding or at least something I might be able to do?

Ooh what is the fault that they have

And sometimes if you can overbend the bars you can make the cuff go lower but you would need someone who knew what they were doing with aluminium
A model engineer is ideal (Old uncles or grandads that make toy trains  :Claugh:)

well the two buckle things (silver things?) they can slip through eachother if pressure is put on them, which makes it 'untie' its self, which is dangerous maybe in midjump or falling or something.. :S

I've grown quite a bit since the last time i've been on them (over a year and a half ago..) so I will check later on :D

Yep I remember that on a post a while back

I think the cure is to make the loop in the webbing small enough to stop them moving by sewing closer to the buckles

Stick up a picture and I'll make sure I'm on the right track

I'm thinking of getting calf cuffs cos I'm finding the knee bar and strap a bit uncomfortable.
Thought I'd ask for some opinions to see whether people think they're worth the investment - £30 for the pair of cuffs and another £28 for Wulf knee pads at Pro Jump.
Also could you recommend anywhere else with better prices if you know anywhere.

Thanks,

James

Hi James

I use cuffs for the same reason (can't stand the kneebars they hurt me ) and the cuffs are so much better

As for prices I don't think you'll beat the cuff prices anywhere
The wulf kneepads are a very nice bit of kit and hence a bit more expensive than the cheaper types
Projump used to sell some cheaper ones and they were really good but no one seems to stock them anymore

Sounds good to me.
I'm convinced tho I think I might wait for someone that doesn't like them so I can Go Compaaaare.

Thanks!

You will find more that like them than dislike them. I have only read of a couple of people who liked the bar better.. Anway. I love the cuffs. I am also happy to bock with a knee bar. I also think projump still sell the old 'pitdirts' but under a different name. I use these with cuffs no bother.

however, my advice, if you are worried about, would be to go to a meet and try some. Then you know ;)

Know what?
I'm just gonna buy these now methinks.
Might try and find the 'pitdirts' before I buy.
Otherwise 60-odd quid.
Achievable I hope.

I was gonna get those ones when I first got my bocks but they were sold out at the time so I got different pads (not from Pro Jump - I think).
So these pads should be ok with calf cuffs?
Or d'ythink my current pads would be ok with cuffs?

yes you do DC. You get then just like in the picture. You can pull the bars out and put the cuffs straight in. Then you have to faff around for a while getting them set up and never move them again haha.

I don't know if you are still bocking Caroline but there is a simple fix for the old XB7 cuffs you have.
All you need to do is sew behind the first ring to stop it from pivoting. If you can sew between the 2 rings also, that should prevent any possibility of one passing through the other although this would be just extra insurance.

Great walkthrough, Jason. Took me a while to get my calf cuffs setup, but they're great (after a couple hours tweaking :P). :D

Glad you liked it mate

Once cuffs are set up right they are so comfy I can't use anything else now

With the cuffs you may find the long strap doesn't go all the round the back as you could with the older versions, the manufacturer shortened the strap but you should be able to get it to stick on the velcro that shows at the front

Try this Billy. Get a pin and make a small prick in your legs. That will let some of the air out.  :Cwink:
