  1. New Base Shoes Suggestions

    Don't feel bad @MadMax. They are roasting hot for me as well here in Washington. Also, @Stan W. I too have some NB 950s available. Only worn for around a season. 11.5 2E in low top if Max's don't work for you.
  2. Douglas WV owners

    Is that the one you bought from me? The one that just got locked up here on the forum looks awesome!
  3. MadMax/Schutt XV retrofit

    Can't wait! My new Schutt XV is almost in @MadMax's hands. I look forward to him retrofitting it and shooting the "how to" video and getting it back in time to show it off at our HS on field clinic and the Wendelstedt local clinic at the end of February.
  4. What is Your Primary Mask?

    Diamond featherweight powder coated black. Throat guard chopped off. Zett throat guard. All Star sun shield. Wilson Memory Foam pads.
  5. New Mizuno mask

    Oddly enough, was watching a game on the Pac12 App a few days ago and saw a guy wearing the Mizuno TI. Wasn't ure what it was until I saw this post. Thing looked so damn sharp!
  6. New Mizuno mask

    You and me both. And had been asked on here if it was a Mizuno in the Mask Porn thread.
  7. Weird Comparisons request: Plate Shoes

    I have both the V3s as well as an older pair of the all black Zigs that I use for mud games. If I remember to do so, I'll try and get a photo for you by this weekend.
  8. And I disagree with the weight aspect. I have one on both my rigs and I don't notice any weight difference (though for some reason my neck hurts and I keep finding myself randomly looking at the ground LOL.) Now... mind you... the visor does nothing to keep sun out of your eyes. That is taken care of by the bill of your cap and the top pads on the mask. What I like about it is that it keeps the rain off the front and bill of my cap (they tell me it rains a lot here in the Pacific NW) and then the sun off the same part of my hat. But that is my two cents. YMMV
  9. Took a fastball untouched (F2 got crossed up when called a breaking ball off the outside corner and idiot F1 dots the ol Numero Uno on the inside corner) just above the left wrist last fall. Stung like he'l for the next three days and the lump didn't go away for over two weeks.
  10. Ebay finds

    There is also this. Looks to be in good shape for a decent price. https://m.ebay.com/itm/DOUGLAS-UMPIRE-CHEST-PROTECTOR/132532626822?hash=item1edb8f6586:g:mH8AAOSw3W5aov8q
  11. Austin Hedges' Force3 HSM

    So, watching MLB showing the Royals-Padres ballgame. And what do I see? An HSM with an extended cage protecting Austin Hedges' (San Diego Padre catcher) for ead area on his HSM. Since he is decked out in Easton gear, I was wondering if it was a special made cage for the Samurai HSM. But I couldn't get a close look at it. Luckily, in the bottom of the 6th they showed a side view close up. And there they were... those wonderful metal springs we all know to be Force3. So now the question at hand... is this a one off, special made, cage for Hedges? Or might this be testing for a new cage setup for the Force3? Thus adding the protection we all constantly strive for, but have never had the opportunity to obtain?
  12. @Razzer also makes mask harnesses. Get yours along with the chest protector harness and the line-up card folder... you know... so you can save on shipping.
  13. Austin Hedges' Force3 HSM

    It was. But with an extended cage ala Gary Cederstrom.
  14. My Place To EJ?

    I knew you were responsible for the quotes. I just couldn't remember if it was you or someone else that was keeping the running list.
  15. Austin Hedges' Force3 HSM

    Sorry man. My phone was dead at the time and the channel has been changed. So no photos. Thankfully, Hedges is the starting F2 for San Diego. So more chances to see it will be available.
  16. All-Star FM 25mlx mask with bent bar

    One thing to keep in mind about Tony... We keep the man busy. Along with the other stuff he does (like flaunt over his lovely wife.) Make sure when you send your mask to him, that you have another one to use (in season) or get it to him early enough that he will have plenty of time to do it right (off season). Depending on when you do it, it could day a week up to a month for you to get it back. I sent him a silver Diamond Featherweight. He fixed the weld, did some cosmetic surgery for me on it, and sent it back to me. Total time from me to him and back... around 3.5 weeks. Mind you, I also sent it to him just after he left for a week on vacation along with weather issues between me and him. Moral of this all... make sure you plan it out so you don't get caught in an awkward situation.
  17. Mizuno Shovel *idea*

    Since you no longer have to do the Max mod on the Schutt, you now have time on your hands.
  18. Quick fit question

    They also probably were molten lava hot!
  19. Mizuno Shovel *idea*

    Why you got to do me like that Steve. Lol Add it to the @Razzer and @MadMax version of the Nike mask sent to Tony to get powder coated carbon fiber.
  20. Nike steel value?

    I too could be interested depending on the price.
  21. @Scott K, @UADirOps, and @JimKirk can you guys help this young man?
  22. Quick fit question

    Of course we could. But the delay in response could be annoying. The person physically helping you needs to know nothing about umpiring. Only how to follow instructions and tighten straps.
  23. All-Star FM 25mlx mask with bent bar

    About 70% of the guys on here have used Tony at one point or another. You won't be disappointed.
