Vanity, Vanity, All Is Van... Oo Look, a New Visor!

Force3 trotted out a brand-new visor for their Defender TM, and of course, it's designed to fit to the unique geometry of the Defender's upper cage. There are two tab slots instead of one, and there is a notch to accommodate the centerline mounting clip. It even has the Force3 logo (which should, and hopefully someday will, supplant the Big Yellow W) laser-engraved.

...

I'm shocked I beat @gnhbua93 in this announcement. If/when I get a Defender TM, though, it will surely have one of these on it.

You beat me to it and Mark Wegner beat us both. He is using it at the USA vs. DR WBC game tonight. That thing looks awesome!

I wasnt paying close enough attention. Was Wegner wearing a Force3 today? Or just the new visor?

Yes, he was wearing a Force3 Defender mask. He switched to it last season along with his crew chief.

Man! I never even noticed! And I like watching Wegner work too.

So now there is Winters and Wegner rocking the Defender. I wonder how many more will make the switch?

Wish it would've been out a month or so ago when I made an order, now it won't let me order. @JimKirk Is it not possible to do just the visor?

Upgrade, I also upgraded to the V2. Now, my V1 will be my back up mask.

@JimKirk I couldn't get just that - it said it had to weigh more than 0 pounds.

So now the critical question – will these "rebels" be able to show the Force3 logo on their chin tabs, will they (still) have to manually obscure it, or is Force3 accommodating an oppressive, arcane, out-of-date Arrangement by producing pads for these fine gentlemen devoid of chin-tab artwork?

Now I understand. We made a rookie mistake.

To get a shipping quote on the site, an item ordered by itself has to have a weight. We neglected to add a weight for this product.

Now fixed. Thanks for heads up.

Put this on last week and have done a couple plates with it. I worked in some rain yesterday, and it helps keep it out of your eyes too.

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

      The Force3 Ultimate Umpire Shin Guards are a high quality umpire shin guard made of premium materials including DuPont Kevlar, stainless steel rivets, and high-impact slimline composite buckles.
      The uniqueness of this design is in its lower profile design that uses Kevlar inside the padding that reduces the need for bulkier and/or heavier padding. Therefore, of all lower-profile designs in a double-knee variety, consider this your most protective option.
      FEATURES
      Kevlar layer is laminated into the interior padding providing the best protection and lowest weight possible. Slim profile provides conforming protection. Optional comfort padding provides a cushioned barrier between your leg and the shin guard. Vent holes make for great breathability and airflow while working your game. Lightweight: approximately 3lbs Three sizes: 14.5″, 16.5″ and 18.5"

      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!

      To All,
        Another fantastic experience with customer service associated with our chosen Profession/Hobby! 
      I ordered the All-Star MVP2510m (small head) Catcher/Umpire helmet on Sunday of this week (3/6/17).  I received the helmet today (3/10/17). 
      After examination of the helmet I discovered a gouge in the plastic. Almost as if they started to drill the hole for the screw in the wrong place, and purple paint on the silver guard. 
      I contacted All-Star and spoke to Lisa. She had me send her the pictures of the defects. I let them know that I intended to use the mask as is on Tuesday. The spots aren't detrimental to the functionality of the mask. I just wanted to let them know, so they can be aware incase someone else has something like this. 
      They advised me that they are sending me a new helmet and I can keep this one as a backup. Between All-Star and Force3, they have made this years experiences amazing getting ready for season and during the start of this season.

      Thanks All-Star!!
