Nope I had to create it. It didn't take long about an hour. I used high-res images to verify the mask setups for each umpire.

That is alot of low profile masks!

I think a lot of those listed as Chrome Moliben masks are actually Dyna Lites.

For some reason I cant see it without highlighting the text. Its black on black.

Where might I go to get my TI powder coated and how much would it cost?

I will chime in on this, I don't know much about equipment but the cowboy , Drake and the Gooch are wearing Wilson Ti that are powder coated black. Also, Vanover wears a Riddell.....

I am by no means an expert on this, but a few things off the top of my head: Beal got let go two years ago. Tumoane also has and wears a Nike mask fairly often. Laz still wears those ugly tan All star pads (sorry Brad!) even though he switched from a all-star Ti to a Nike Ti this year.

Along Hickmans comments, I think powder coating the Ti masks is the next logical wave you tweaks you will see.

Thanks Chris

Just Google powder coat and your city and u will see a bunch pop up. Black is a popular color and they shoot it all the time. You can get on done or no more than 40 bucks.

I have noticed that guys seem to have a couple or maybe just try another out. There are times I don't even recognize the plate guy because of they are not wearing the mask I am accustomed to them wearing.

One of the things Ive heard about the regular Dyna-Lite masks is that the rubber coating on the bars is meant to absorb energy and slow down a ball. The titanium mask doesnt have this rubber coating on the bars.

I was watching a game a few weeks ago and noticed Drake not wearing his usual Mizuno (that hes worn for a long time) and was instead sporting a black Wilson mask - but the bars appeared to be thinner than the regular Dyna Lite. This must have been it.

Have noticed a mask frame that looks like a Wilson & is black but definitely is not a Dyna Lite....I think this is being field tested:

147520131-home-plate-umpire-joe-west-res

Its definitely not a Dyna Lite - more narrow profile & bars:
