Adidas mask powder coated black with black Belgard pads and mizuno TG.

+500 points for using black Belgard pads

+400 points for getting a flat black powdercoat job

–1000 points for cruel & unusual, cutting the horn chin guard off a unicorn Nike

...

+200 points back for it being, technically an Adidas, but still, I'm withholding points for making some of us sad

+314 points for using a TG that makes @BT_Blue jealous

+9 points for assembling a good-looking, unique rig

 

Seriously, we need to call this planform "The Icon" or "Iconic", or I'd even be in favor of calling it "The Posada" (original commissioning of the planform). The whole Nike / Adidas / Reebok / Mizuno whosit-whatsit shouldn't matter, it just looks good.

If you remember my +POS AL that resembled a mizuno 129 frame that I had, all summer, paired with tan TWs, I bought two tone gray and black leather pads for fall ball from U-A when they announced availability, and created a loose interpretation of the Fonzie mask: +POS AL frame painted Dark Steel, Mizuno TG, Honigs Harness, with the Wilson Black and Grey pads. Less than 20 oz!

Your forehead pad is not attached correctly.

Looks good to me. Or am I missing something?

Middle strap looks off

I think it's one of the cross bars and the angle of the photo.

3 of the 5 straps are not connected.

I don't know guy. Think I'm going to die on this hill and say it is the angle of the camera. (Also... how dumb is it that we are talking about this.... and yes I know I started it.)

What we need is an overhead shot from @BobUmp to solve this riddle.

I will deliver a better pic when I get home! I believe all straps are positioned properly though... Used it Sunday, and it felt good..

 

Looking at the pic, I think the fact that the pads are wraparound is causing the perception that the pads are off a little..

After some toying around with different brands/models I have finally settled on two.

Got the rigs ready to go. 

Diamond iX3 custom by Mask It (Thanks Tony). Powder Coated Matte Black. Wilson Memory Foam Pads Wilson MLB Harness  

Mizuno 2QA122 09 with Wilson Memory Foam Pads, Mizuno Harness. 

ZETT TG for both.

Your Diamond is the exact same set up as mine. Only difference is that I also had Tony take off the top extension (Though I wish I hadn't)

Points time!

On the Diamond iX3:
+400 points for the custom work by MaskIt
+300 points for selecting flat (matte, or stealth) black. It's a far superior black.
–66 points for that silly gold W on the pads
+314 points for a TG that makes @BT_Blue jealous (these points awards will continue until Arik finds his own white whale unique TG)

On the Mizuno:
+5 points for having distinguished tastes
Push on the silly gold W, again
+314 points for a jealousy-inducing TG

Am I allowed to deduct points from @MadMax for not reading my post just above his that says o have the exact same set up on my Maskit-ed Diamond?

If so...

-500 x2 for not remembering I am looking for the Mizuno Shovel and not the Zett

Push for the fact that the Big W does kind of suck. But the memory foam pads are great.

P.S. I will get my "white whale" gosh darn it! Someone will sell me one, I will convince the gentleman  (why can't I find his darn name) to give me another chance at one when I finally attend a BBUC came, or someone on here while get so sick of me bringing it up that they will sell me one of theirs. Lol

Anybody remove the loud yellow W from their Wilson memory foam pads? Does Acetone work? I HATE that W.

If im not mistaken, the memory foam pads have the patch on it. Been awhile, but you can cut that black patch w/ the W on it.

Any recommendations on how to get a clean cut? I think what you're saying is right.

What I do is I pick at the stitches of the patch (around a corner) with an exacto knife until you got enough playroom to start cutting and picking more. Kinda easy after you get it started

i have to cut a patch off some gray pads, I’ll post a pic in about two hours

Okay, so if use a knife just make sure you don’t have a really heavy hand. And after you get some done you can kinda pull it off.

and I just slapped these pads on the nike frame while my TW pads are washing.

A seam ripper would likely do less damage if you are heavy handed. And it should only cost $2 at your local fabric/sewing store.

I'm gonna try a seam ripper to get it off as I'm trying to make my Nike look cleaner without that W on the pad!
