John Brown 2400 Cup


Recommended Posts

I have an old Eagle double cup, the gray one. The straps are all stretched out. The material covering the entire unit is damaged. It's all normal wear. The structural integrity of the cups and the plastic shield are good. But even with tying up all the straps to keep them tight, the cup tends to sag a bit during play.

So I am considering a new cup. I am a John Brown fanboy, so I am inclined to go with his product. His double cup offering is the 2400. I have seen some comments on this site that this particular model is huge, some say overkill. I would like to know what anyone who has worn this exact model has to say about their experience with it. Also, how it may compare to the Eagle double cup I have. I do wear John Brown 2000 pants, so I would imagine they would be compatible with the cup. I also wear my chest and arm protector untucked. I am not really concerned about price, since I so rarely buy new equipment.

I used that cup for one season and you can definitely say it is huge. If you have Brown pants the fitting shouldn't be a problem but it sure takes a couple of skates to get used to the size. I have Brown 2400 pants and 2200 c/a which I tuck into pants and there were no problems with fitting.

Even though the cup is huge, I wasn't completely satisfied with its protection. I felt some unpleasant stingers and I don't want to wear a separate cup under it so I went to search for other options. After some research and reading reviews I bought a Warrior Ritual X2 Pro jock and it has been a perfect solution for me. Much more compact in size and zero stingers after two seasons. I still have Brown jock in storage and maybe I will give it another try when Warrior has to retire. I personally think there can never be enough protection for you family jewels. 😄

I took a couple nasty nut shots in warmups a few months ago so I changed up my loadout a bit

I now wear these Bauer cross compression undergarments, which have a built in cup.

The cross compression is the same tech that CoreShorts uses in their shorts (https://coretection.com/) - they're supposed to help stabilize the core during physical activity.  On top of that, having the tension in the pants to push the cup into place helps with the overall security when you're taking a shot to the jock

On top of that, I'm wearing the Bauer Pro goalie jock (https://www.goaliemonkey.com/accessories/jocks-cups/adult-jocks-cups/bauer-goalie-jock-pro-sr.html)

It took a couple skates to get used to, but I pretty much feel invincible down there now

Not exactly what you were looking for, but hopefully some input helps you with a decision

So, it doesn’t protect adequately? Did the cup shift or was it a direct shot that you felt through the cup? Was it an impact to the cup or above it by the top piece?

I haven’t experienced anything like that with my current cup and it’s probably more than 15 years old. I made some adjustments to the strapping so it won’t sag and we’ll see how it holds tonight when I play.

They were direct shots that I felt. Worst ones were the ascending shots that hit the cup from below. I used to have a Brian's DX cup which never had any issues regardless of the angle or strength of the shot. Also with my current Warrior cup I haven't faced the same problems. It is possible that it is only me who has so sensible nuts, thanks to good old 90's Kohos which caused quite many moments when I just had to catch my breath few moments after hit. 😄 For clarification, I never felt so bad stinger with Brown cup that caused serious pain. They were more like a very unpleasant feeling in stomach when you get hit to the right spot. I think one reason for that was that I couldn't get the cup fit tight enough because of its size and that's why it moved a little during the puck hit.
