Default azzpadz or shorts?

Hi all - I think I'm an intermediate or something slightly above a beginner maybe I've spent prob 12-13 days on the board.

I have a tailsaver ( but thinking of getting something a bit better. Was thinking of an azzpad as they get good reviews on here. Was also thinking though is it better to get a decent pair of hard-tail shorts instead to give more overall padding...

If you were at my level (plan to get stuck into some nice red slopes this winter) but not do tricks etc would you focus on ass protection (azzpadz) or slightly less ass protection but better all round protection for hips / cheeks and get a pair or hardtail impact shorts?

PS - I'm a bit chunky @ 5'7 and c. 190 lbs so I can tend to land hard enough I guess

Thanks for the help!
