What was the final cost incl. shipping?

Not sure that that Cajun is going to do it anymore due the the time it takes and cost.

I'm sure he will chime in.

I checked local companies and they said they are not set up to do this type of item :(

I thought this might be the case. There is a fair amount of labor (which is expensive) and not a lot of $$$$ to buy/replace. I had one done locally. It took a while and they did not seem excited to do any more. They quoted me $40 and they stuck to the price. It was a nice rig. Wilson Dyna lite without the vinyl coating powder coated black with tan wrap around pads. I never wore it. A fellow blue saw it and made me a offer that was too good to pass on. I basically traded it for my WV Gold.

Here is a link for the Pads. Fiitske was the one that introduced those pads on here a while back.

I found a local company that does powder coating. I'm gonna give it a shot. Will post pics in a week or so. It's so cheap, I can't not try it.

Dropped my old school all-star off at the powder coaters this morning. Small outfit, so he doesn't batch. I should have it back soon. Fingers crossed.

That's a very underrated frame. It's light, very stout, and has good visibility. I'd stack it against anything out there, in overall performance

Thanks for reminding me that I've got one of those, and haven't updated the pads in it, yet.

I'm getting a bunch of stuff powder coated flat black, for my old '67 Mustang restoration. I'll toss in the All Star frame, just for kicks. I take a little bit of light steel wool to the bars of my shiny black frames, to cut down the glare. I'll just give this one the stealth treatment.

      I'm sitting in a Texas Roadhouse after calling 9 baseball games over the past 3 days in 117°+ Arizona heat, watching the Mets get shellacked yet again by the Dodgers, when I notice the camera zoom way, way, waaaaaayyyyy in on Travis d'Arnaud and the Force3 Defender mask he's wearing. Travis is new to the Defender TM, having previously used the Mizuno Samurai HSM. The Samurai is one of the most thoroughly padded HSMs on the market, but doesn't get enough play besides the sleeker, more sculpted All-Star System 7's and Easton M-series.
      With the camera zoomed in on the telltale, trademark springs of the Defender, I begin reading the closed captioning of the two ESPN broadcasters discussing the details of the mask, and how it is progressively suited to reducing impact force and the likelihood of concussions. The camera pans to show all three spring points, and even shows the profile shape, with the broadcasters pointing out the standoff distance. They go on to say several catchers in the league are now using it, and there is now a hockey-style version on the market (the Defender HSM).
      In a move of directorial brilliance (the guy in the truck should get an Emmy nomination), the camera then pans to zoom in on Lance Barksdale as PU for tonight's game... wearing a Wilson Titanium Low Profile... with Wilson leather wraparound pads...
      Sigh. Facepalm.
      The broadcasters then contrast the Defender TM against the Wilson TiLP, and how little protection it affords the umpire. Barksdale's nose is on the verge of poking out of the eyeport, and the mask is nearly flat on his face. One of the broadcasters laments, "I never saw the point of that mask".

      Thanks.

      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'm looking to get $330 plus shipping. Send via paypal as friend. Selling frame only. 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!
