    Need advice on cowboy collars/butterfly restrictors

    So I play MLB and I am 15(turning 16 this year). I need to get something to help protct my neck. So it's either a cowboy collar or butterfly restrictor. Not sure if the butterfly one is worth the extra money. What exactly is the difference between the two?-Is it just two different companies and that's all? If I were to get the cowboy collar, which size should I get, M or L?

    the butterfly looks cooler, and is much more effective.
    if you wanna look even more intimidating while adding extra protection, cop one of these joints:

    Okay so i think I'm going to go with the butterfly. It works with any shoulder pads and not just Douglas ones right?

    Don't worry, it fits with all pads. I currently have a cowboy collar cuz one of our old players had it and left it for me. i'm thinking of getting a butterfly restrictor also, but i don't even feel like i need these restricting things anymore. butterflys do look cooler though, just don't look like a doofus and put ur jersey over ur butterfly cuz that looks retarded as hell. also butterfly doesn't restrict u from looking up as much as cowboy collar.

    but in the end, u really don't need any of these things. seems like too many kids go out and by these things, but they aren't necessary. if u've been big on lifting and neck protection and ur traps, u dont need any of this excess stuff

    Thanks. I see what you're saying but our coach wants all the linebackers to get some sort of neck protection.

    I have both and I like the Cowboy Collar. The butterfly is just way too restrictive. You feel akward moving around with your head stuck straight in the forward position the entire time. You can't move your neck back at all really. The cowboy collar actually gives a little so you can look up when your body is tilted. I also liked the protection of most neck rolls. If you want neck protection with very little constriction of needed movement, I'd look into one of these:

    Schutt Neck Pad/Collar : http://www.schuttsports.com/aspx/Spo...og.aspx?id=803
