      Before these came up, I used to use Tampax Pearl. I've only use tampon for couple years, before that, I only use pads. I love these, the smell is nice, it doesn't bother at all (I don't like scented Tampax pearl), they are as easy to insert as the tampax pearl, and they are way easier to remove than Tampax pearl. No discomfort when i'm wearing. Now, I use this in conjunction with Always Infinity.

      I was interested in buying this product since I needed to wear tampons for the athletic activities I would do. And since these tampons are "specialized" for sports, I thought what tampon could be better as it also shows in the advertisements that these tampons open 360 I was very wrong and disappointed- after wearing the tampon for literally and hour I started to leak. After that i went back to just wearing pads. I didn't try wearing them on light days b/c on light days I just wear thin pads, but I"m sure these tampons would be fine for light days but defiantly not heavy days.

        Playtex Sport tampons are the best tampons I have used, and will only buy or use another brand/line if I'm in a pinch. They are both comfortable AND reliable. I suppose the shape of the applicator and the way the tampon expands as it absorbs is why it works so well and why I prefer them over others. Even the removal string is better than other brands in my opinion. :-)

            Comments about Playtex Sport Tampons, Unscented, Regular, 18 ea, 1 pack:

            Ive always used Tampax pearl assuming it was the best out there. But a couple of months ago I started at school and had to borrow a tampon from a friend who gave me one of these. I immediately realized how much more I liked these: it was easier to insert, lasted longer, and I couldn't even tell I had a tampon in. the comfort towers over Tampax pearl. The only down part about this tampon is the packaging. You have to rip it open and then it's harder to put the applicator in to make for a discreet throw away. Sometimes I just have to wrap it in toilet paper.

            I bought these tampons and they would leak so much. These tampons were such a hassle. They wouldnt give me the leakage support that I needed, especially as someone who needed "sport" for running and exercise. Not worth it

            Comments about Playtex Sport Tampons, Unscented, Regular, 18 ea, 1 pack:

            I really wanted to try these tampons. After Ive seen the commercials they seemed really attractive, especially because they're Playtex (the most comfortable brand out there). Well, first of all they were really expensive, which doesn't work for me because they're tampons - not something that I want to invest in. Second, they have a plastic applicator, which I don't want, because they're not eco-friendly. And third, they leaked like crazy! Even though I had tampon backup in the form of a pantiliner, my underwear was FLOODED. And I really didn't see a difference between a "regular" tampon and a "sport" tampon. It was just a tampon.

            Comments about Playtex Sport Tampons, Unscented, Regular, 18 ea, 1 pack:

            I kind of like these tampons. I have to admit that they are quite comfortable (they expand width-wise) and hardly any leaks occur. But the insertion part is so hard. The applicator widens at the bottom, which makes it kind of painful to insert. Also, all of the "cheering-up" sayings on the wrapper are kind of disturbing - I mean, it's JUST a tampon! Lastly, the price is definitely too high for 16 tampons. Id rather stick to something more affordable, environmentally friendly, and basic.

            I was recommended these by a friend and found them very effective. I love how they expand all around, not just width-wise like Tampax, and the tapered head which makes insertion a breeze. The reason I gave them 4 stars is because the price is a little high and I didn't find the absorbency different from that of another brand.

            I wouldn't recommend these at all. There are better tampons out there. The packaging isn't the easiest to open. and the tampons aren't very absorbent. I felt like I would walk around 'wet.' And it would leak before the inner core absorbed anything. I'd think I'd need to change and to see that it was only half full? What a waste of money. O.B. and Tampax cardboard are still my overall favorite, nothing can beat cheap and eco-friendly!
