What do you guys use or would recommend. I have been using a traditional plastic hockey cup with jock but find it doesnt work to well :( and is uncomfortable and doesnt stay in place, when doing sparring or practicing. So, what would you recommend, would compression shorts and a different cup be better or anyone other ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!

 I use a steel muay thai cup inserted into a pair of briefs with an athletic supporter buitl in.  works great and in the even that my shorts get pulled down, my ass wouldn't be hangin out! :-D

fairtex steel cup with the string thong.

i've seen more than one plastic cup wearer writhing on the ground from a nut shot.

i've taken many blows to the cup and the only thing that happens is my sparring partner gets hurt.

 Steel cup is the way to go. Plus you get the North-South Facehumper Knockout added to your toolbox...

Which is a truly excellent idea.

as far as I'm aware there isn't a "No groin strikes to the head rule" and would certainly bring new meaning to the term "Hit him with your groin"

Plastics can split or doesnt absorb that much as compared to steel cups. plastics can also cause some unmentionable accidents where it splits and something gets caught pinched and you would be in terrible pain.
