Personally, I had trouble getting this one fitted / molded properly and ended up ruining it to the point of not being able to use it.

I haven't used one, but they come highly recommended by everyone I know who has used them. I just bought one, but haven't got a chance to fit it yet.

got one - it works well and has stopped me from getting a chewed tongue and yet another chipped tooth when noobs catch you an unfortunate one with an elbow in the chin...
And yes, it stays put - without making you look like you've got a case of scurvy afterwards... true in little ole' England it costs up to 3 times more than your average 'basic' type of 'boil and bite' gum shield, but for the security, quality and added safety net of the guarantee - it's worth every 'extra' penny...
Unless you like going to the dentist and having your wallet emptied every time you chip a tooth...
BTW - anyone tried the double one yet?

I have the Shock Doctor Power Gel DNA mouth guard, and it's by far the best boil and bite on the market IMHO. Offers great protection with a plastic cover on the outside, it's very comfortable, doesn't gag me, and easy to breath when teeth are clinched. Not a bad price either, got mine from amazon for about 10 bucks with shipping. Only thing better would be a custom job I would think.

I have the Shock Doctor Power Gel DNA. Apart from a custom job, it's the best on the market IMHO. It's easy to breath when teeth are clinched, it's comfortable with no gagging and it offers extra protection with the plastic outer. Got it on amazon for about 10 bucks with shipping.

I have the Shock Doctor Power Gel DNA, and it's great. Aside from a custom mouth guard, I would say it's the best on the market imho. It's a boil and bite but it's very comfortable. It is easy to breath with teeth clinched, no gagging (for me) and offers extra protection with a hard cover outside the gel.

Good review and a great mouth guard. Every person and trainer I've asked has recommended these.

Haven't tried the double, but I hear it's not nearly as good as the single.

we use the pro shock guard in our school - the only problems:
-if not properly molded during to boil/mold process you lost the guard, and have to buy a new one
-retails for about the $17
-kids like to chew them up like gum instead of keeping them still in the mouth, so not reccommended for new mouth gaurd wearing students
Otherwise, great mouth gaurd!
