I started using Colantotte with the MAG-RA. You can adjust the height, and the magnetic force helps to keep your body in good shape, so I take it with me even for away games. I also use the magnetic necklace and Multi-Supporter Knee during games. Catchers have a hard job, so it really helps. I like the design too, and I use the TAO Necklace AURA all the time.
