The new Billingham SP40 Shoulder Pad in Tan is designed as an upgrade to the SP15 shoulder pad. Harry Billingham explains the rationale behind the new product:
We have looked for a better way to manufacture the shoulder pad products for some time now. While enjoying their simplistic nature, we have listened to feedback from customers during this time who want more functionality aswell. The incorporation of foam padding for comfort and a switch from the neoprene grip to a much more hardwearing rubber material make this product a great upgrade.
The SP40 will fit a 1.5" sling, replacing the SP15; the SP50 will fit a 2" sling, which is in place of an SP20. In both our original Tan or Black leather, the SP50 is also produced in our new Chocolate colour.
The new SP's will be sold alongside the current SP's as an upgradeable item. We have no current plans to stop production of the old style products at present.
