Mask (and accessories) Weights

6 posts in this topic

Hey guys, there are a lot of members here who are mask addicted so I just thought I'd post some weights of some of the popular mask frames and accessories that I have, have had or tried. It might help you choose a back-up or lighten up your current rig a little. Every little bit helps. Though I can't attest to perfect calibration on my scale, I am using the same scale for each item so the differences in weight by comparison should be very accurate. Everything here is listed down from lighter to heaviest.

Also, if you guys want to 'weigh in' your own items that aren't listed here, feel free.

Sorry to revive an older post. But I came into what I believe to be a Nike Titanium. It weighs out at just under 17oz in total (mask, pads, and harness). You can find photos at 

Also... what does a Nike Steel weigh? Does anyone know?

      Hopefully there are some out there collecting dust

      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".

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

      No... really... what the heck do I have here?
      I came across this mask at a Play It Again Sports in Corvallis, OR (home of the #1 ranked Oregon State Beavers).
      I am pretty sure that it is a Nike. While others have brought up Adidas. Neither of which would surprise me considering the (over)saturation of those two companies in the area. I am leaning towards it being a Nike due to its configuration and where I got it from. It weighs in at 1 pound and around .8 ounces fully put together.
      I already have talked with @JaxRolo and @Razzer. Also got input from @Thunderheads What say the rest of you?
      Also, thanks @wolfe_man for your help.
