NuttyBuddy Flex Athletic Cup
ESPN Nutty Buddy Video from Sports Science
Inventor Mark Littell tests the Nutty Buddy Protective Cup with a 90+ MPH baseball on Sports Science.
Added the first version to my umpire bag 5 years ago. I will never trust another company to protect the goods. This is by far the best protector on the market. It offers maximum comfort and protection. I have been hit multiple times and the cup has always done its job.
Fit is great, just follow manufacturers' suggestions on how to properly wear, and you will be very happy. The fit is a little different since the cup is meant to "free float" in the jock, and you need to wear a separate pair of underwear. Don't hesitate!! Just get it.
Oro Valley, AZ
I've been protected by a NuttyBuddy for approximately ten years. Purchased my original, white, cup from the manufacturer in Scottsdale. One of the best purchases of my life. Have taken numerous direct hits to cup. You feel the overall shock from the strike but with zero pain. Once I watched the video I was sold. Ordered one immediately. Only had to replace it due to the edge seal falling apart. Manufacturer would not permit me to purchase a new seal. Cup is still serviceable aside from the seal. So had to purchase another cup. My most important piece of umpire gear. Definitely highly recommend this cup. It's comfortable enough to wear while working the bases because you never know! A groin strike is awful but painless with a NuttyBuddy.

While the NuttyBuddy cup can be placed into the cup pocket of the Smitty Grey Compression Tights, it is not recommended. This flex cup is designed as a part of a system with the NuttyBuddy Jock and Lock Core compression shorts. See the details HERE.– Ty Unthank
