Anyone have any advice on which would be the best? Cheaper the better but don't want to sacrifice quality

opro are the best mate
they do various shields, going from silver at 8 quid, to custom fit at 35 quid

Guy on here "C.K.A. Martial Arts Supplies" was knocking out the opro ones at a bloody good value the other month.
£25 cant beat that really.
I was to slow but still Hell of a deal

The Opro custom-fit ones are allegedly the dogs bollocks, but their boil and bite are a bit crap IMHO. I'd go for Shock Doctor, personally.

Opro are the best on the UK market ~ BUT ~ it all depends on what you are doing
Silver - ideal for semi contact such as karate
Gold / Gold Premium - ideal for contact such as kick boxing and standard boxing
Platinum - the best boil and mould on the market - it has impact zones designed for heavy contact such as MMA
Custom Fit - the best fit you can get, you have to do the mould yourself and then send it to opro for them to do a custom fit shield which takes about a week
if you need more indepth information please let me know

I've twice had the Opro Gold boil and bite ones and never been able to get a decent fit out of them, whereas my two Shock Doctor ones have both molded correctly first time. IMHO there isn't enough material in the little fins they have inside them.

the new Platinum has a thicker level to it , very simular to the shock doctors ( which i have used my self ).
what level of Opro were you using.
