    Thanks Guys!
  2. CP Help Requested

    Hey guys, one more quick question.. does anyone who has a 13 inch Douglas know what the width of the bottom plate is? I’ve heard that the 12/13 inch models aren’t as wide as the 15 inch model. I think the 15 inch model’s middle plate is about 15 inches in width.

    Yeah I have been looking into Champion as well. Only thing that I'm not quite sure about is that neck pad. I'm assuming this could be removed though

    So I apologize for yet another CP advice thread but I am starting to wonder if anything out there that will fit me well so I would appreciate some help with this one. First, I am a tall slim cut guy. I currently wear a Wilson Gold and as you can imagine, my bottom ribs are not quite covered and since I am so slim, the Gold looks even more bulky and out-of-proportion on me as it does on most people. Therefore, I need something that covers my bottom rib, isn't so bulky and hot, but something that still affords me enough protection to go behind the plate in a varsity high school level. So in my search to find a replacement, I have a friend who has a 15 inch Douglas that I test drove for a while. While it is certainly a quality protector, the middle plate on the Douglas stuck out so far that it just made me look weird (again due to my slender frame). I started to miss the conforming nature of the Gold after noticing this. In fact, I couldn't even cradle my mask under my arm and against my body in between innings because the middle plate stuck out past my body so far. The middle plate was so wide and non-conforming to my frame that I decided that this was not what I was looking for, so the search continues. I have begun looking into the SchuttXV and thinking about contacting @MadMax for advice on how to rig a flex style harness on that rig. I have been reading that the Schutt is not as bulky and hot as the gold and I really like the advanced foams instead of sofa cushion foam. However, I saw a few pics where Max modeled this rig and it seemed like the "wings" (for lack of a better term) on the side under the shoulders stuck out and didn't really conform (maybe this isn't the case and it was just that one pic). I would really appreciate any advice and opinions on what seems like a never-ending chest protector search. Thanks!
  5. Sold. Lock it up @Thunderheads
  6. I actually really like matte black masks but I hadn't ever had a low profile before and just couldn't quite get used to it. Your creation was beautiful though lol.
  7. Yes it is. It's that same mask that I bought from you. I couldn't get my pictures to upload so I "borrowed" your picture of the mask
  8. I'm having trouble getting other pics to upload so if you want more pics, PM me and I'll be happy to text or email you as many as you would like. Selling the frame only and it is in excellent shape. Asking $100 shipped.
  9. All New equipment NEEDED!

    Of the masks you mentioned, I'll give my two cents on the Aluminum Dyna Lite. Light as a feather, comfortable, good vision and built like a tank. One drawback is the fact that aluminum is a bit like titanium (rigid and doesn't flex with a hit as much as steel). Other than that, I love it.
  10. Navy blue plate coat

    I thought Honigs quit making these. If they are still making them, how did you order one?
  11. I also had a great transaction with him back in August. Surprises me a bit since he was very responsive and very quick to ship. Actually had my item before I expected it. Have you heard anything yet @tpatience
  12. What chest protector are you using if you're not using the Riddell
  13. Sunglasses Polarized or No

    @Richvee, Just curious..... Since they have your prescription in them, do you wear the prizm's both during the day and at night or on low light cloudy days? Just wondering if the prizms are versatile enough to be worn both during the day and at night/low light.
  14. NB base shoes

    I really like the looks of these but I would think that the white on the bottom would get to looking pretty dirty pretty fast..... thoughts?
