I'm sure most of them do. If it increases their chance to win, they'll wear it, providing it's legal at that tourney.

You cannot however where two layers of any of these pads. The refs do check from time to time.

I'm pretty sure I can say that when the "chest protectors" were allowed, no Pro used them for protection. It was and is all about getting a bounce instead of a break
are penis pads allowed lol nick

No, most of them don't wear chest protectors. They wear elbow/knee pads.

I know a member of Aftershock just stated that they are not allowed to wear chest protectors in the PSP this year.

I know that according to rule 8.1.1 under the clothes section of the PSP rule book, it states: Players must wear only one pair of full-length pants and only a long-sleeved jersey. Players may wear only one layer of underclothing consisting of, at maximum, one pair of under-shorts and one short or long sleeve t-shirt, provided that it contains no padding. Anyother soft padding in garments is prohibited.

However, you are correct, I do not know much more other then that.
my "quote" button did not work as planned

i was tring to say that Ollie Lang and many other Pros DO wear chest pads such as empire ground pound stuff to help with bounces.

PSP technically WILL count the headband since it is an independent article of clothing (now here comes my reasoning which im not sure about) which i find odd because if you were to thread them together i THINK it would go back to one, as long as it was designed that way. (dont quote me on that im just guessing)

Guests bring food. Food attracts animals. This one time, a bear came. And then the bear had to be destroyed. Which means they shot it in the head with a rifle, and killed it, and it died.

To answer the thread starter's question, yes, many Pro players wore chest protectors, and some still do.
Crap, you're right lol.

I had tunnel vision on that one. Just checked the USPL's rules and it states that they can wear chest protectors.

5.05 Layers and Padding. Players must wear only one pair of full-length pants and
only a long-sleeved jersey. Players may wear only one layer of underclothing consisting of, at
maximum, one pair of under-shorts and one short or long sleeve t-shirt, provided that it contains
no padding, except for chest protector, and at its furthest point, does not hang lower than the
inseam crotch area. Players may not wear sweatshirts. Any other soft padding in garments is
prohibited.

For all the PSP Rulebook says, You could put f--kin pillows every where. After all, it's just one layer.

I just wear elbow and knees.
