Foam and other material questions Can't Post

I am looking to buy foam for leg pads and back pads. I am not sure what type of foam and where to buy.

Also is there any place to buy stiffener clothe beside para gear. Was hoping to find cheaper.

Looking for magnets for riser covers or anything like that.

Any help would be great.

Thanks shannon

I can't help you with the stiffener off the top of my head.

Hi shannon,

About how much do you need?

I have both the mesh w/foam as used by Velocity Sports as an option on their Infinity rigs, and some 1/8" Spacer w/foam.

I could easily sell you a yard or two.

I also have some 1/4" foam that I have used for rig padding.

Just contact me via email at:

I've found some 'limited' selections at the local craft store, a bit pricey for any mass production concerns but for smaller projects they often seem to have what I'm looking for.
