yeah man neck protector is kind of nooby, but whatever floats your boat. I usually just wear elbow and knee pads for sliding.

Honestly, there is nothing to suck up. You get shot in the neck very very rarely if you play well.

Neck shots suck first of all, almost been cliped in the throat, that makes me nervous cause that will really suck bad. but if you think about it when you tucked in a bunker your chin is down and your gun does most the protecting. Wear protection and Fack what people think, but side shots in the neck are not as bad as they seem and like someone said in a previous post neck shots happen rarely but do happen.............

They won't happen if you're playing properly. Consider it a way of learning. Oh, you got bunkered in the neck and the guy mowed your face while he was at it? Look the other way next time too.

c'mon dude if you wear **** other than pants and a jersey with the exception of elbow and knee pads..your a *****..thats all thre is to it
why with the exception of elbow and knee pads? they are serving the same purpose as a neck protector, to protect.. so i guess that makes you a ***** too

neck shots only hurt in the adams apple.
if you don't have one yet, you're lucky, kindof. lol.

but yeah i've been shot right below my adams apple and it just felt like a regular shot, not like i started choking, fell to the ground and grabbed my throat making hidious moaning sounds.

^^lovely visual for you.

but yeah, im not going to lie to you neck protectors do look noobie, no ones going to really 'pick on you' because i've found paintball to be a very friendly sport, but it does look noobish, almost like those full-head helmets that kids used to wear.


also normle body armor looks noobish, unless you're an older gentleman (because older folks bruise easier and a lot worse, i've played with my father a few times and he gets some big purples.)

only real padding you need is-
elbow+forearm pads
knee+shin pads
sliders
and i wear a bandana/do-rag

another thing is, you probably won't get shot in the neck, except maybe the back of the neck [though it's true, nobody should bunker a 10 yr old] but i wear a hat backwards and with the brim down and it kinda covers the back of my neck, idk if i'm really saying this right, lol
