    HEY 'PREP'!

    I've been pleased with 'SHOCK DOCTOR', 'BANANA CUP' and 'JOFFA'. All these CUPS have lotsa room, even when you get "EXCITED":biggrin1::biggrin1::biggrin1:

    PS: They are available on line from www.internationajock.com Sure hope this works for you.

    Banana cup is good, but big cups make it hard to move quick: when dad got me my first cup-- 11yo, little league-- he told me to double strap: wear a regular jock under the cup jock-- seems to be more comfortable but still holds it, even under shock Doc.

    HEY 'TW'!

    Good idea, dude, (bein' "double strapped"). When I'm 'cupped' I ALWAYS strap on a 'SWIMMER' before I pull on my CUP + STRAP. I know it sounds like overkill but trust me it works.

    I double-strapped when I played hockey. Those damn hockey jocks are just not comfortable, and being slapped in the nuts a few times from a highsticking opponent teaches you to reign in the loose, dangly bits very quickly.

    I know what you mean. I am just average size and bought a Bike cup and supporter for football this fall. Not only is it uncomfortable, I an barely get everything in--ridiculous. Who is engineering these things?

    What do you big guys do? You could really get a lot of pain if you go without the cup. If you are big, you could actually do more harm than good if you took a shot to the crotch.

    Good luck here I gave up on jcoks and cups years ago. But then I don't absolutely need a cup.

    Prepky,
    Hopefully I can be of help. Several years ago I found a brand called a Kookaburra Big Kahuna Abdo. An "abdo" is what the folks across the pond call a cup. This is just the cup, not the supporter. I bought a couple and I have to say that I'm impressed. The cup is one of the deepest/roomiest I've found, is curved to tuck under, and is narrow enough between the thighs so that I don't get rubbed raw like I do with most of the others. In fact, it's comfortable enough that I forget that I even have it on most of the time.

    You also might want to try a method for cups that I've found that helps make them even more comfortable. I don't wear mine inside of a cup supporter. I find that with most jocks, the material stretches across where your package is supposed to go and just makes the situation worse. I wear mine directly against the skin after putting a small bit of baby oil or Bag Balm (yup, that's really the name of the stuff) on. The bag balm is loaded with lanolin and makes the boys very happy. I then simply wear a good jock like a Grey Bike over the top to hold the whole thing in place.

    I suspect that if you give this a try you'll be a LOT more comfortable. Good luck and keep the boys safe.

    I wear a 2 Xist Y Back jock. I honestly, wear it for play and not for sports. The pouch is cotton (not mesh) and it has not shrunk since I have had it.

    Hi WaSwimjock

    I saw a copy of your post below on alt.support.jock-strap on Google about the Kookaburra Big Kahuna Abdo which apparently is manufactured in the UK for cricket players. This athletic cup is awesomely HUGE. Is it possible to get this cup here in the States? I think it would fit perfectly good in the Under Armour Turf Gear Performance Jock with cup pocket.

    Hi BigDoug,

    Are you referring to the new BIKE Performance Jock with cup? The cup looks very interesting, in fact something very different and new from the cups that BIKE Athletic used make until last year. I too was very disappointed in how small this cup is. I barely fits a normal guy's endowment. That is a real shame, because in 1985, BIKE came out with a rather huge banana cup and supporter that fit perfectly.

    Thom,
    I wasn't able to find one in the US even though I searched and searched. Seems to me that I got mine out of Australia but I can't remember the store name now. The shipping's much cheaper from Australia than from England. Regardless, even if you have to pay a bit more, it's worth the cost; the cup is wonderful.

    Slazanger or the Kookaburra Big Kahuna Abdo (they are both the same) is the largest cup . Its taller than other makes so good if you like to point upwards.

    haha

    Thanks for the tips guys. My scrotum hangs out the sides of a regular cup. Doesn't matter if I double strap or not :( The pinching alone was enough to make me give up activities. :mad:

    They were engineered by angry ball-busting women!
