Oh I see, well like I said I like the armor I have and actually the goaly pants I have I've actually motified the padding on after my first game of speedball, I probably should've mentioned this before, but I was too angry. Anyway what I did was I left the big knee pads in and took out the femer covering and replaced it with thinner padding such as the padding found in your jersey, actually I cut it out from and old paintball jersey that was ripped up like hell and couldnt be fixed, but the padding was still good that I got off a friend. Anyway I basicly replaced the original femer padding with the femer padding of a paintball jersey to make sliding easier even though I dont slide much in woodsball, but when I played speedball I definately had to slide. Oh yeah and I didnt get shot in the ankle because I was too loose on my bunker, I was advancing up to another bunker after I got two people out and I thought the third person was way back on the other side of the field battling with two of my other teamates, but he wasnt, he got them out and he was hiding behind a near by bunker waiting for me to advance up and I did and out of nowhere he got me, so it was pretty much a suprise attack. Then two days later I motified my armor pants to make sliding easier.
OK, so one of the times that you played speedball, you got shot in the right ankle twice (according to your post made before I decided to be a complete dick and say something negative about every single thing you said :D) and you had shin guards on so you didn't feel either of them. Now you say that you ripped out the padding in your goalie pants and replaced them with pads from a paintball jersey that was ripped beyond repair. So you have pants that are similar to that of paintball pants (Minus the ventilation and padded area around the crotch) , shin guards, forearm guards, a helmet, a chest protector and pants on underneath your goalie pants? And basically what you're telling me now is that you have goalie pads with paintball pads in them, and you got shot as you were running to another bunker? That's great, but I still think you should order a jersey off ebay or something and lose all the rest of the armor for two "good" reasons this time. You said that the pants you made helped for sliding. I'm going to say that's because they were lighter and smaller, but still enough to protect the knees. And probably the best reason for loosing all the excess armor is if you wore armor every time you played, you probably weren't afraid of getting shot because you wouldn't feel it. Without all that armor, you're going to feel lighter, run faster, and above all, play smarter. You're going to think twice about running in dangerous situations, but you should still know the right time to go. Trust me, you're not going to get a lot of welts.
