For the 2017 college football season, I bought shoulder pads and an integrated girdle from Tag Sports Gear. They both fit me like a glove and make me feel super confident on the field! These will be my go-to pads from here on -- I highly recommend them! Read More

I was raised working in my father sporting goods store. I learned a lot about shoulder pads through the reps who sold to my father. In addition, I played and I know how important a shoulder pad is to the player and his position. My son started tackle football in the 3rd grade and I looked around for shoulder pads. I wasn’t thrilled with the lack of options and the cheap quality. Based on my past, I remember TAG so I went to their website. I bought a ALT II 744 Youth Shoulder Pad and was blown away. Read More

Phillip Rosati Jr
VP-Sales, TAG Sports Gear

What role is player safety playing in the team sports business?
Play safety is going to continue to be a bigger issues and it will cause industry leaders to further advance technology in protective equipment and not continue to make the same old product.

What role can team dealers play?
Team dealers are the direct line to the end consumer. It is our job as manufacturers to educate the salespeople and give them all of the facts so when they are facing mom, dad, coach, or AD they are fully educated and can answer any questions. When manufacturers of equipment come out with something new and cutting-edge it gives the team dealer another reason to get in front of the coach, AD, or even parent.

How has the industry responded to the demand?
The industry itself has done a good job in increasing safety, but I feel some have done better than others. I can’t speak for anyone else’s strategies, but I can tell you TAG will always be at the forefront of technology. There are some companies out there still trying to push the same technology without truly making any real advances in technology.

Where does the category go from here?
The protectives category will continue to evolve in the future. What most of us remember as a traditional helmet, shoulder pad, girdle or thigh pad won’t be the same. It’s amazing to see how much they have changed and how exciting it is to think of what we can do to change the industry with more product advancements. A smarter consumer is better for your company --- instead of them buying a product solely on name, they see that the name doesn’t mean it’s the best.

How has your company addressed the issue?
We have addressed the emphasis on player safety by continuing research into the best possible materials we can build our products with. Our product managers’ first goal is always safety first --- we do not focus on price first. We build the product we would want our children to wear and feel comfortable with.

What’s new?
Our newest and most innovative product is out RIPT shoulder pad. We have used our pyramid impact dispersion technology and also used a new material for the shell of the pad.

My name is Ryan and I just wanted to send a quick email in regard to the excellent service i was given recently at TAG. I initially had some questions about the shoulder pads I wanted to buy, and I made an inquiry through the TAG website. Within a very short amount of time i had a very thorough and well explained answer that made my decision to go ahead and buy a pair of TAG football pads extremely easy. Overall I have never experienced the type of spectacular service and relations in my life that I have just recently experienced with TAG. Read More

Parents Love TAG Gear

Tuesday, August 27, 2013 10:23:32 PM America/Chicago

Loyal TAG Customer - My son's gear arrived on Friday night -- just in time for the first tournament of the new season. My son is very small. Finding a quality set for him, especially with an adjustable chest protector, was very difficult. My cousin recommended TAG since he had just recently purchased some gear for his own son from you. The gear fits great; my son absolutely loves it. I appreciate the professionalism of you and the rest of your sales staff. The original order was filled promptly, and when I needed to conduct an exchange, you went to great lengths to help make that happen in a very short time period.

TAG Pitching Rubber Earns Praise

Friday, June 21, 2013 10:57:21 AM America/Chicago

The rubbers we have been using are too soft and I would compare them to a pencil eraser. This is baseball… kids wear cleats. The pitching rubber did not match the quality of the rest of them mound. Actually the rubber issues have been a complaint, albeit a small one, from our end users. Those complaints ended earlier this year when you suggested we try the pitching rubber TAG provides. We immediately noticed a difference just taking them out of the bag. The quality of rubber TAG sent us in comparison to the other ones was obvious. Read More
