Yeah this was just a test for me to see how I like the lack of rake. Now I'm debating sending the mask he just did for me back to cut that sucker off. :question1:

 This one will most likely end up at Tonys door step soon enough. But first, lets see how long the spray paint lasts.

In my experience, spray paint lasts an average of about 5-7 games before the chipping becomes obvious

The soft iron is a decent color.. The bars look much thinner.. I'm guessing you took vinyl off?

how do you cut the rake off or who is this Tony that does it?

Tony @maskitsports. I've done it myself and used a dremmel tool and then a steel wool attachment to even out the cuts

That's a se><y beast, @Umpire_ar. May it keep you in good health.

@Jdc03270, you're a butcher. If you don't want a chin guard, just buy a Mizuno. What did that poor defenseless unicorn Nike ever do to you? Hell, if you want to cut'n'chop, take out your mangle-ment on a Wilson!*

You mean to tell me, @Jdc03270, that it was that mean green cheap-ee you got from Play It Again??! I was sitting there, waiting for the photos to load, read that you chopped the chin guard off, and I was so sickened I didn't bother to view the photos any longer. I feel that a Nike Ti without its chin guard is like an elephant carcass without its tusks.

Total waste.

Yeah it's an old Wilson mask. After chopping it off and playing around with it, I think that if I did have a Nike Ti............. I would still chop it off.

Once again, Tony L at MaskIt is a master artisan of masks. And like any art, he cannot be rushed, because the end product is worth every moment of patience.

This past Monday, I stepped behind the plate for a AAA/AA/A intersquad game, with a good friend and fellow Vulture (more on that later) as my base partner, wearing TOC Bermuda blues (best atypical color IMO) and carrying my newly arrived, freshly re-coated +POS ZRO-G mask. Both starting catchers, despite being completely clad in brand new All-Star gear and being paid a modest entry-level contract, took one look at my mask as I threw it on and said, "That's a badass rig, Blue".

It better be. I chose this color to complement the 2016 Sky Blue, the 2010 TOC Bermuda blue, and the 2010 Sky Blue shirts. Due to some pathetic coordination by the color supplier (not MaskIt's fault), they went with my second choice – Bay Blue Metallic.

While Tony and MaskIt were working on my +POS ZRO-G to apply the Sky Blue Metallic, I puttered around with some other masks, and stumbled upon another Honigs K-4. This one is decidedly older than the current version, which sports the extended crown guard, huge ear guards, and stubbier chin guard. Of course, I got it for a steal because it was navy. For some stupid reason, certain states cling like barnacles to the traditional-style navy shirt, but think it looks perfectly okay to pair up a navy shirt with black gear (masks especially) and a black hat. Based on how many states refuse to update, you'd think there'd be far more navy-colored masks in circulation.

So I decided, if these states want to be so stubborn patriotic, let's go all-out. I ordered up some All-Star bicolor leather pads in scarlet and tan, and here's what I came up with:

Cooperstown Dreams Park, here I come. I would also fit in for a HS tournament visit to Ohio, or Indiana, or Wisconsin, or Virginia, or Pennsylvania, or...

I have thought about getting a Navy mask as well for Ohio of course.  We are required to wear all black shoes, black belt, but we then a navy shirt.  Why not let us wear MLB black shirts to match our required all black accessories and usually all black gear?

But far be it from me to try to change their minds now.

Technically, Michigan requires all black shoes as well, however, many, if not most of us have white on our shoes .... but alas, Michigan(MHSAA) is navy required still :(

We're supposed to have "mostly" black shoes as well. A few that do college games have the B/W Reebok Zig Techs.  I have both so I can match my partner.  My NB plate shoes have the white "N" as well.  

Personally, I like the ones with white on them. All black shoes generally don't look so great.

Couldn't agree more!  The white looks athletic, the all black looks like you have shoes on from your suit :rolleyes:
