Thanks it did, still on the fence about spine protection. What good would it be on rails and jumps? I live in the midwest and thats all i really do.
I did a cab taco on a flat-down box once. Hurt a bit, but if it'd been a rail I think I'd be in a wheelchair. Scared me enough that I started looking for spine protectors the next day.
I've splatted on other occasions, nothing so dramatic, but at minimum the spine protector spreads the impact and provides a little padding. You can still have the wind knocked out of you, but that's minor.
Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.
