The Brine King Elite shoulder pads break down into a popular liner design with a simple adjustment to the pad. What upper level defense men, FOGOs and LSMs love about this pad is how wide it is as it wraps around your rib cage and over the collarbone. Many shoot on the run offensive middies are stripping down their pads because they aren't feeling the hurt from getting in the ground ball piles or clearing through traffic. These King Elites have low definition padding that really covers up the back of your ribs and still allows for nice flexibility. We love these shoulder pads for advancing youth defenders as well.. good coverage without sacrificing protection up through the high school levels.Also be sure to check out the LACROSSE SHOULDER PAD AND LINER FITTING GUIDE.
