Does how stiff or flexible the pad is matter if you wear your pads loose anyways? I see people talk about the flex of the pad but also seems like most people wear the pads so loose that there would be very little tension on the straps. Especially if the top of the pad is pre-curved and you're not wearing any straps behind the upper leg. I'm somewhat of a shorter, scrappier player but I like the idea of switching to stiff pads for various reasons. I don't want to inhibit my movement but I feel like the straps would be so loose that it wouldn't matter... Opinions? Thanks!!
