Some might, most tourney players where them for bounces, not cause of the pain.

+1 take any advantage you can get. I use the PE padded under shirt works excellent, especially when teems shoot crap paint.

In the PSP we are allowed to where elbow, knee, forearm, shin, and almost any other pads.

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

You're right. It was legitimate, just incorrect. I guess I should have worded my comment differently.

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.

Since when was the PSP the only tournament series with a Pro Division?

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