Best, most versatile lenses for action sports that Oakley makes, @BT_Blue, are the G30. 

Those are the golf ones, correct?

I once was looking into the persimmon lenses. But they don't make them anymore.

I wouldn't say they were "golf" per se, @BT_Blue, as I've had G30's on my cycling glasses, my snowboard goggles, and a whole slew of other activities' glasses.

I don't golf.

I've noticed that there are many more golfers here in the Pacific NW over those in SoCal, Arizona, etc. Not sure why... just seems like it

Keeps the dust out too. I got some in my eye last year one game and fought it for almost an inning. Finally got some eye drops. It was to the point of starting to hurt, not just keeping me from seeing.

Just purchased a Diamond visor for the mask.  Installation was a breeze.

I also wear sunglasses, and the Maxx HD Wizard are the eye shades of choice.  At $20/copy they provide excellent clarity, even in flat-light cloud cover conditions.

Is there a visor available for the Wilson low profile mask?

Fewer golf courses = greater density.

Actually there seems to be just as many golf courses here as there were in SoCal. You would think it wouldn't be. But there is.

But Michigan has more! :-)

      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".

      DJ Reyburn changed his mask for a military type

      Does anyone have either of these masks and if so, can you please provide feedback on them?
      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!
