Default Padded compression shorts?

I'm thinking about getting some, wondered what everybody uses? Right now I'm looking at the Nike pro combat series. There are 3 different styles, football, basketball, and baseball. The baseball ones don't have much padding at all, the basketball style seems to have a mid weight pad, and the football has some pretty thick padding. I'm between the Bball and Fball ones, anyone have any experience with these. My first thought was just go with the Fball style, the thicker the padding the better, then thought they may be too bulky?

MSRP's about the same... what size you wear, REI has Pro-tec XL in stock for $40 on sale right now.

http://www.rei.com/product/777180/pr...ds-mens,-black

Or ebay has a size large for $44.

Not trying to push you one way or the other. Actually, the pro-tec ones are pretty nice but I would've preferred a more solid pad especially on the tailbone like they used to do in the RED impact shorts. If the Nike stuff is hard like *actual* football pads that I used to wear in high school, then I'd go with those. If it's just a foam pad, then it's a toss-up and I'd say go with which ever you can get a better deal on.

I like the look of the Demon stuff, I bet they sold out quick, that's a killer deal.

I found that both the BB and FB styles have a tailbone pad. I just snapped up a pair of the FB style(NWT) for under $20 shipped If anyone else wants a great deal on these here's the link, these are gonna go quick http://www.ebay.com/itm/370685965139...84.m1439.l2649

Now I'm looking at the shirts with rib protectors, any suggestions?
