NuttyBuddy Classic 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.
Mill Creek, WA
Took a one-bounce curve ball square to the cup in an 18U tournament game last night. Heard everybody groan, and someone tell the catcher to walk the ball out to the pitcher. It was great to be able to just say "nope, I'm fine, let's go". Great protection and so comfortable I can forget I'm even wearing it. What's not to like?
Comfortable, almost forget you have it on! Haven't impact tested yet, hope I don’t! But have heard it protects well!
This is good protection. There is no discomfort when wearing it.

|Q:||What is the difference in the Classic and the new flex?|
– Patrick Williams
The sizing and shape of both models are the same. The flex cup has a larger rubberized edge which offers slightly more flexibility.– Ty Unthank
