    I wouldn’t buy the big ones. I’m thinking the small shin cup pads.
    The weaver and Buckingham look almost identical, I’ll probably get Weaver because those are the ones WesSpur has.

    Yea - I had the Bucks. Best pad ever with a low profile. That's what I hated about the caddies... soooooo bulky!!!

    These with the insert are what I'm digging lately. Check some of the lineman suppliers for a bit of a discount

    I liked those for a while, then I went to caddies, then the angled Bucks.

    Big, bulky caddy pads for big, bulky trees .

    The rest of you pissant peeps can do fine with something less .

    Recently in most cases I use Distel. Light and comfortable. You have a pretty serious wound. I would run to the doctor ...

    Hella pressure wound!

    I use Climb Right ultra light pads on Buck Ti's. The first time they kinda sucked because they are too flat. I clamped them in the vise and added more curve to them so they hug my shin better, good to go now.

    This is what I'm using, and I couldn't be happier. I got them from wesspur, and I want to say they're Buckingham, though the picture says Weaver. I'm not a pro, and have only spent a couple hours at a time in them, but I haven't even had the inkling of an issue starting. Make sure you strap everything down tight; like almost uncomfortably tight. It'll find the spot it wants to sit in, and will feel fine once you start climbing.
