|dissonance||The skeletools seem to cover more area than the demon shield, but the demon shield seems like it would protect more against harder falls as if you are wearing a knee pad on your tailbone. Not sure if the demon shield sticks out as much as the skeletools.|

|jkc350z||I mean it really depends on what you are looking for. The flex force will take the sting out of a fall, but you will still feel it, where as the skeletools will make u not feel anything, but will also look like you shiz in your pants. Just my opinion.|

|51bombed||i should probably grab some of these.... ate it pretty hard on a rail at a local school today.. everything closed including gas stations, freak storm threw up all over my area... powder doesnt serve as good padding on stair cases!|

i got the skeletools and never used them. they are WAYYYY TOOO bulky in my opinion. I personally use these:
Demon Flex Force Padded Shorts Men, 2011
enough to take the sting off any fall and very very low profile.

|veazer||I went ahead and got a pair of large skeletools impact shorts for 80 all said and done. I did some advanced searching/digging in this forum and realized they were both good. The only difference I found was that for every one demon hardtail review I found, I also found nearly five people giving skeletools the thumbs up, and went with the skeletools. I'll review 'em when they get here.|

i personally dont use either... never really opted to although i probably should, couldnt hurt... however, friend of mine i frequently ride with has the skeletools shorts... the upper hip pads and tail pad have a pretty hard packed pad exterior.. not far off of plastic. I can't be 100% sure though because ive never seen the demon tail shorts in person.... but i'd say skeletools would work well... he bounces off rails like a basketball, and that area's always fine on him.
edit: try to get some personal owners of demon tails input... i dont really know anyone who uses them.

Skeletools or Demon Hard Tail
I'm getting impact shorts because I'm tired of almost seriously injuring my tailbone when i go riding, and I've narrowed it down to these two.
The Demon Hard tail has the hard plastic which could work like a helmet for the azz, but the Skeletool shorts have the ability for extra padding and they have such a huge pad size as well, and I cannot decide between the two. If anyone here can help me decide, plz fire away. EDIT: Is the set of extra pads worth paying 22$ for with the skeletools, because not getting that could make the two items have very similar price points.
P.S. I don't want azzpadz... I want something that helps my hips too.
