I bought a Comfy Cup for my 9-year-old son who has been playing tackle football for 3 years now and he loves it. Compared to the much more expensive cups I've bought for him previously, this one doesn't cause him pain in the area. It provides the support and protection he needs and according to him it is "the most comfortable sports cup" he's used. I already bought a second one to have on hand as an extra and recommended it to other football moms in our team! Comfy Cup is a great product I would recommend it for young athletic boys. Thanks Comfy Cup!
