Put the Team Wendy pads in my mask on Friday. Took my first mask shot on Sat morning. Sounded worse than it felt. Now I'm curious as to how it would have felt if I had left the Diamond 50/50 pads in the mask. I'm not planning to switch them back to find out.

Anyone wash theirs yet? The fabric on the inside of mine is a bit abraded (from stubble I guess) but I'm also thinking they could use a cleaning. Ump-Attire states on their website the pads are "machine washable and dry quickly" - obviously they have to air-dry. I looked on the Team Wendy's website as well but couldn't find any care instructions.

I have washed mine in the wash. They clean up nicely.

After working the first inning in my All Star System 7 HSM, I switched to my Diamond iX3 with the new Wendy Pads.
Thankfully I didn't take any shots but the pads felt great. :Cool2:

Moved to Salina, Utah.  Time for some fishing and hunting.

I worked my first game with them yesterday too and they feel lighter than the Wilson wrap arounds. Very comfortable. I took no head shots but too bad I didn't have them on my right quad - I hate slow, lazy F2s!

How did you wash them? How much detergent?

I usually just throw them in with my uniform shirts and undershirts. Once they are done, I let them air dry.

Looks like I may have a brand new pair available with a Diamond iX3 Mask based on doctor recommendation to wear only HSMs :crybaby2:
Will decide what to do after some research.

You know why??
Because the NOCSAE doesn't currently have any standards for traditional masks without helmets! That's why your Dr. is saying this Lou, ...guaranteed

So I broke down and bought a set that arrived yesterday. Out of the box, I gotta say I expected them to be a little more "cushiony."

Perhaps it was my fault - after reading all the posts on here I expected them to feel like a cloud from Heaven tickling my face. They seem a little stiff and I'm having a hard time getting the bottom of the chin pad to stay down and not push up against my jaw, which is promblimatic but I think I can fix that with experimenting with the Velcro configuration.

Like any sane person would do, I put them on and then proceeded to face palm myself to see what a shot would feel like. I wasn't blown away - granted this wasn't exactly an episode of Sports Science.

Have you guys found that they break-in and form to your face a little bit? Anyone else feel the same way I did out of the box?

I'm replacing the Diamond stocks in my Ix3 that felt much more comfortable so far, but I know I'll explode if I take another face shot with those on.

I took one shot with those stock Diamond pads to convince me to swap them out. I actually felt the metal frame hit my jaw.

The TW are firm, and I've found they change viscosity with the temperature. Hard when cold, and no so when warm. Also, they warm up when worn.

My 1st pair, I wasn't all that happy. They weren't as comfortablle as the leather I was used to. I took a hard shot with the leather and got lockjawed and a very sharp pain in my right ear. So out go the leather, in with a new pair of TW. I got used to the feel, and must say the protection far exceeds my expectations. I will not wear any other pads from here on out.

I had the same first impression of the pads. I prefer leather rather than fabric, but I use them for the superior protection, not for their comfort. I do wish they made them in the wrap around style - can't see how that would lessen their protection.

I think wrap around style is a Wilson exclusive for the time being.

Guys I have a question about the velcro placement on these pads. i have 6 mask with 6 different pads. These are the first pads I own where the male part of the velcro comes from the top of the mask to the bottom of the mask. How did you loop the harness through the middle part of the pads? The only way I can do it makes the velcro obsolete since there is no slot for the harness to go through the pads.

not quite following you. They mount like other pads.
