  1. Hey all, Up for sale is my Nike Titanium mask. This thing is in GREAT shape. Only worn for about 1 season, and has been treated like royalty. This thing pretty much looks brand new.

I do have another thread open with some other stuff for sale... bundle some stuff together and I'm sure we can work out a price discount. PM me if your interested. Thanks!
  2. Hey guys, there are a lot of members here who are mask addicted so I just thought I'd post some weights of some of the popular mask frames and accessories that I've had or tried. It might help you choose a back-up or lighten up your current rig a little. Every little bit helps. Also, if you guys want to 'weigh in' your own items that aren't listed here, feel free. Frames Nike Titanium - 11.2 oz +POS ZeroG - 12.5 oz All-Star I-Bar Hollow Steel (with vinyl coating) - 14.6 oz Wilson Chrome Moliben (without vinyl coating) - 15.2 oz Wilson Dynalite Catcher/Umpire (with vinyl coating) - 18.7 oz Pads Diamond Quik-Dry Vinyl (Not 50/50 pads) (upper) - 0.9, (lower) - 1.3 oz +POS black mesh (upper) - 1.0 oz, (lower) - 1.4 oz Nike (upper) - 1.1 oz, (lower) - 1.8oz All-Star Mesh (upper) - 1.6 oz, (lower) - 1.4 oz (Yep, I checked it twice, the upper is heavier than the lower pad) +POS Classic Brown Leather (upper) - 1.5 oz, (lower) - 2.0 oz Wilson Amara Suede (upper) - 1.9, (lower) - 2.6 oz Wilson Black Leather Wrap-around (upper) - 2.6 oz, (lower) - 3.9 oz Harness (es) (Harnessi?!)

  3. Hi guys. I'm a catcher not an umpire but since we often need to work together I'd hoped you would overlook me posting here. I recently lost my gear bag with all my gear in the Los Angeles area. The most precious item being a Nike titanium mask w/ navy Nike pads. I was hoping anyone reading/selling here could keep a look out for me. I don't expect to get anything back but I figure I'll try anything I can. The mask obviously has pads that can be changed out. But I bought my particular mask from eBay and the previous player/owner had written in silver sharpie "X13 or X31" (I can't remember exactly) on the front of the lower pad. So I'm hoping the thief will start listing my stuff on eBay/Craigslist or here, as they were, in which case the mask can at least be identified. I'd appreciate any help. Thanks much.
  4. As I have mentioned before I'm a huge Jim Wolf admirer, and I noticed something different in yesterday's game, something that greatly disturbed me, something that caused me to look twice at the tv. He has a new mask. It seems like a Wilson but I'm not a 100% sure. I would surely appreciate it if you all could help me out. Thanks
  5. This mask is brand new and never been worn I gave the pads and harness away to a friend. Have no use for the Mask now. It is impossible to get unless you find one online. Or if you have a sponsorship with Nike. I'm selling this item through venmo it will cost an additional $20 for shipping because I will add the extra insurance to ship to you. Send me your offers I will start at $350 personal message me if interested, or to send best offer
  6. Up for sale 2 brand new sets of navy blue Nike mask pads. $60 shipped each PayPal Friends and Family is the only method of payment accepted.
  7. Hey guys, I'm looking to get a traditional style mask. Specifically, a Nike Steel frame or silver Wilson frame (I dig the silver frame on black pads look). I don't really need the pads, but would take them or a harness if need be. Obviously, the price will matter too. Thanks
  8. I got excellent news from Tony at MaskIt that he can indeed repair my busted Nike Steel mask and put it back good as new'ish. So, I don't need this second one I hastily bought from a fellow U-E member just in case my primary gamer was truly dead and irreparable. It's a low-profile Nike Steel, with a MaskIt Powder Coat (MIPC) of bright silver. The Nike harness is included. The TW pads are not included, neither is the Markwart sun visor. Lightweight, resilient and iconic. PM with reasonable offers. I have a number in mind – it is not outrageous and I'm willing to be flexible.
  9. I have for sale a Nike titanium catcher/umpire mask. The mask is in perfect condition and comes with the black Nike pads that came with the mask and a pair of tan Team Wendy pads that I have on the mask currently.
  10. Looking for a Nike Ti (one of many beautiful masks). Please anyone who's willing to send one send pics and requested price. Thanks
  11. Hello all - This is a USED Nike Ti frame with BRAND NEW Nike pads and harness for sale. I bought the frame used on eBay. The pads and harness were from another Nike Ti I bought new on eBay in which I replaced the pads. So, in summary: USED Nike Ti frame (used by me for 3 or 4 games this season) NEW Nike pads and harness (never used by anyone) $300 shipped.
  12. Time marches on, and we've got some new offerings in masks for the upcoming season... Hockey -Style Masks (HSM) All-Star is still the iconic HSM producer, but several rivals have made significant improvements to their product lineups. All-Star: Showing focused refinement, the MVP4000-UMP and MVP2500-UMP models get updated padding and (supposedly) better paint jobs. In fact, the MVP2500 "Molded" is now black through-and-through, meaning that a ding or knick isn't going to discolor the shell. The MVP4000 is now offering a titanium cage, to keep pace with Wilson (see below). The System 7's, showcasing their I-Bar Vision construction, really allow the best sightlines of the HSMs on the market. Diamond: The brand-new iX5 system is now on the scene, featuring a much more sculpted shell and 3D-formed cage. Unique to Diamond, the iX5 is the only HSM with a "shovel-front chin" on the cage. Looking like a throat-guard on a TM, this adds another deflective geometry to the mask, especially for those that drop the chin. The iX3 name has been dropped, and the previous model (the iX3) received some tweaking and has been released as a value-price-point named the EDGE Core. Of course, because umpires get much less "love" from the manufacturers, the "for-umpires" HSM is an EDGE Core labeled as DCH-EDGE-UMP. While it doesn't have the curves of the iX5, it still has the pronounced chin cage guard. Easton: Made some needed improvements to the Mako, and are heavily marketing it as their flagship unit. For 2015, they've introduced the M7 (in two finishes "grip" (matte) and "gloss"), which is a less-technical, slightly-lighter-weight unit that is posed to be their workhorse. It has a 3D-formed cage and a sculpted shell, indicating that is concentrating on deflective properties instead of mass and bulk, and appears to be so much more comfortable than the elder Rival. With the M7 now on the scene, Easton looks to be consolidating the Rival and the Stealth into a mask named Black Magic, and is aiming that more on youth (ie. 12U) baseball, and the budget price points. Mizuno: Nothing new to report in their Samurai G4 line. It has the largest standoff and padding concentration in the crown of an HSM. Nike: ... (sigh)... uh... Yes, Nike makes a HSM. It's called the De3539, and is made more as a branding piece (see? We're in baseball!) than as an advanced piece of protective gear. Unlike rival UnderArmour, who re-branded All-Star units, Nike... you can't tell who produces the Nike unit. Rawlings: The Slowest-to-Update-Baseball-Company-In-the-World finally, finally introduced a new HSM after All-Star kicked their keester all down the 1BL. The CH1 (which, undoubtedly, stood for "Catching Helmet One") saw its shell redesigned, outfitted with new CoolFlo pads, and stuck with a curvy, sleek new cage that, strangely, looks like the negative (opposite) of All-Star's System 7 geometry. Hmmm. But it does look impressive! Debuting as the CH950 (so what happened to the 948 other versions?), look for this to be on a Molina near you soon. The entire lineup received CoolFlo pads. Schutt: As one of the premier football helmet manufacturers, Schutt took their AiR technology and (finally!) applied it to their baseball HSMs. The catcher's HSM gets the AiR treatment first, labeled the AiR Maxx 2966. Unique and intriguing, Schutt extended the cage back along the temples, covering the ears and flanks of the shell. That means that's even more protection on the sides, and the cage carries and dissipates more energy before it reaches the shell. No one else is doing that! If you don't need the customizable comfort-fit of the AiR system, the 2966 is offered as an "umpire" version, but it (appears) to not get quite the cage treatment, still using the fall-2014 cage. UnderArmour: UA is really trying to make headway in baseball, and they partnered up with one of the best in the business to do so in All-Star. UA's "Pro", though, is a re-branded All-Star MVP2300, which has the same shell, but doesn't have the iconic System 7 cage. Wilson: Having already seen a significant improvement mid-season in 2014, the Shock FX 2.0 returns to the field, this time showcasing a titanium cage. The most technologically-advanced HSM of the bunch (for now, unless and until Force3 debuts a HSM entry), the SFX 2.0 is the apex protector for umpires; it just gets kinda haughty about it with the ... ahem... particular paint-job Wilson loves to show off. If you can't afford a Shock FX, but still want an HSM with the... Wilson paint job... look for the Prestige. Traditional Masks All-Star: With a trimmer, more defined lineup, All-Star presses forward with the FM25Ti, FM25, FM4000 and FM2000. All four are offered as "umpire versions" with a hat-harness (instead of the Delta-Flex helmet harness), and give All-Star some distinction between itself and Wilson. This is noteworthy with the FM25Ti, which may be physically (titanium alloy and double-wire, more difficult to deform) and financially (titanium alloy, less costly) more appealing to a mid-level umpire than the pure-titanium show ponies Wilson and Nike trot out. Besides that, the FM4000 and FM2000 are instantly recognizable because of their bar layouts. Diamond: How can you mess with one of the best-selling TMs in the industry, but still make it more appealing? Fix the pads! The iX3's geometry didn't change, but Diamond now offers new, improved pads on a re-labeled mask called DFM-UMP-BL (for "Big League", woo woo). This, and the venerable iX3, are one-in-the-same mask... one's named Ed, the other Fred. Oh, and you can get pads that have no logos on them. For those who really cling to tradition we're talking Charleton Heston's grip the DRM-PRO (used to be iX3) and DFM-43 double-bar masks are still available. Easton: The Speed Elite returns, still with exceptionally lightweight construction in a robust geometry. It has some of the largest ear-guards in the business, and very reliable pads (think the complete opposite of the miserable pads on the Diamond iX3). It also has one of the smallest chin-throat guards, such that it encourages and makes easy the mounting of a hanging supplemental throat guard. Force3: The mask everyone is rooting for. Now available in colors (and tan pads!! Sexxxxyyyyy), the Defender is a tangible promise that someone, somewhere is looking out for us who stand behind the plate. While it still is noticeably heavy, that weight has been steadily declining as Force3 continues to pare down the geometry and improve the hardware. The standoff distance is still something to be negotiated, as it feels like you're in cage, but this is the mask that should be your chief candidate if frontal, concussion-inducing impacts are your main concern. Mizuno: Nothing new to report on out of Japan. Nike: Unknown if Nike is even going to offer a mask for retail sale this year. Schutt: Teamed up with Diamond, and offers the DFM-UMP labeled as the Comfort-Lite Mask. (If anyone from Schutt ever reads these forums, please contact me – I've got an intriguing mask design for you.) UnderArmour: Continuing the relationship with All-Star, UA's UAFM Pro is a rebranded FM25, complete with I-Bar advertising tab on the chin. Wilson: The big news came during the 2014 season, with the debut of new Memory Foam pads! They are meeting with rave feedback, and are probably the best rival to Team Wendys. Additionally, while the pads were developed independently, they debuted with the new Dynalite Aluminum mask, taking the spot as Wilson's lightest traditional mask in their lineup. This mask may be a Titanium-slayer, because with the lighter weight (marginal, but still), better pads, and lower cost, it addresses the three main issues umpires face (bad pun!) when selecting a mask. Disclaimer: I did not list Champro nor +POS because Champro's HSMs are rebrandings, and they have nothing new in TMs, while +POS designs some really innovative TMs, but has nothing obviously new for 2015 announced yet. Bonus Note: For those needing to protect a banged-up forearm, these might do the trick: https://www.underarmour.com/en-us/ua-forearm-pad/pid1220728-001

  14. Fellow Gear Hounds, Over the winter, I bought a Nike NR Steel from @JoHart10. He had it powder coated Gunmetal Metallic by Tony at MaskIt, and it is a beautiful piece of equipment. It became my primary gamer, and really want it to be my go-to for upcoming tournaments and CDP. Just yesterday, I finished a stretch of 14 games in a local tournament (lost 1 due to rain), with the championship U16 game being the last game in the entire complex. I'm on plate, and trotted out the really snazzy gear. All pitchers were dealing, with the combined walks kept to the single digits. In the 4th inning, I took a foul ball to the face, and the mask, TWs, and loose harness did their combined job – I didn't feel any pain whatsoever, despite everyone immediately inquiring "You alright, Blue??". Even my grizzled BU partner came in my direction to check before I laughed off everyone's concerns and rearranged my mask and said "Play!" Peering through the bars, I felt crooked. After the next batter, I took my mask – my treasured Nike NRS – off to find... that impact bent the bars!! Just to the right of the lower eye slot, off-center, just off the upside-down-U, the ball pushed the main horizontal bar in noticeably. Now, I'm a farm kid and a technological whiz (quite the combo, huh?), so while I know bumps and dents are inevitable, I also know there must be a way to fix this. How would you fix this? Please advise!

  22. I wanted to canvas the community and get a good idea of everyones wants and needs for a Nike umpire shoe, plate and base.  I have this up as a poll, but as much info as you'd like to add, please feel free.   I'd like to use this information to pass along to anyone at Nike who will listen, and/or anyone on here currently in contact with Nike.   Enjoy!
