5.0 out of 5 starsfinally a mouth guard that fits and doesn't cost the world.
Reviewed in Australia on 15 August 2019
I've been doing combat sports for years now and i can never find a mouthguard to fits without having to do major modifications or without spending hundreds of dollars at the dentist. This mouth guard is the most comfortable one I've ever used! i barely feel I'm wearing it. well done Beast Gear, crushed it!!!
The mouth guard seems high quality, but it isn't the front part that looks so nice in the pics got damaged in the molding process and didn't look nearly as attractive anymore. I could have lived with that. Howerver, on top of that the guard didn't even fit, was always loose in spite of many many attempts to mold (I also used other mouth guards before). Do not recommend.
The mouth guard seems to be quite good. The size fits my 9 year old son very well (looks quite small for adult) which he uses for rugby. The front face has much more depth to it than many other mouth guards we have used, providing much more visible protection. The only downside appears to be the minimal amount of mouldable material within the guard. Every other mouth guard we have used has a substantial amount of material that moulds around the teeth. In this guard, there is just a 1-2mm thick lining of the outer shell which only gets minor indentations after moulding rather than fully forming around the teeth and gums. I therefore don't know how much protection it is giving although he says it is comfortable. If there was more mouldable material in the mouth guard, I would have given it 5 stars.
When I received the piece I thought it would be too small, specially comparing to my old one. I've been using it for about a month now, and I can say how mistaken I was. After a couple of trials I got a very good fit, and is just the right size. My old piece was always scratching my gums and making then bleed a little, but with this one I never had any problems. Another great advantage is that it allows me the breath better and also speak clearer, what is very good when I'm coaching. All in all I'm very pleased with it.
Where four stars given it is due to not being fully tested out as yet. Instructions easy to follow and sent out by company as well. There will always be a bit of a gagging problem with some candidates such as my daughter I suppose and it will take time to get used to as it is an unfamiliar thing to be placing into your mouth. She has been wearing it in the house to get used to it on the hockey field and that will help her gain familiarity with it.
Really good product, my only complaint would be is you really do have to be quick in the fitting, it did highlight this in the instructions so I'm not really complaining.......just be quick. Otherwise it will take a couple of goes to get the perfect fit. My son is super happy with it so I'm happy, thank you!
Update: After leaving the review I was contacted by Beast Gear through post and reassured it would be a manufacturing problem - I was also given a refund and a new product, great customer service which I haven't received from another company before.
OLD REVIEW for faulty product: Doesn'tt fit, I moulded it to my mouth and it still falls out. It is also too big and sticks out of your mouth making it very hard to speak, not ideal when you're trying to play and communicate at the same time. I think it is more suited to boxing/MMA rather than rugby and other full contact sports.
Takes a few tries to get a good fit, but other than that it's a good mouthguard. Nothing special in my opinion but it does the job and the price is fair. I'll consider buying it again once the current one is all used up.
Two weeks after purchase the mouth guard is doing well . Bought for my son , it moulded nicely to his jaw . Fits comfortably and he likes the look of it . The instructions that came with it were clear and precise .
Solid product. Well made and a good fit. The molding was as expected - took a few attempts to get it right but it worked out. You can re-do the process a few times which is great. Tastes slightly odd at first but a good soak in mouthwash did the trick. Looks and feels very professional and for the price its a steal. Highly recommended. Hell i bought 2 ! Love the case.
Good piece of kit which mounds amazingly to your gums and hold it shape too can see all the shape of all my teeth and gums and is very secure The only problem I have encountered and this is small, is where it is so detailed it makes it a little difficult to clean all the tiny crevices and very hard to dry them!
