    First piece of new equipment in a while!

    I held and tried one on last night. Crazy light and great sight lines.

    +POS Zro-G now $69.95

    Maybe he will actually ship them if you pay $69. I tried to get one last summer and after two months of emails and phone calls I let my credit card company deal with it. Had it resolved in a week. I don't care if he is selling rainbow colored unicorns. He can keep them. Caveat emptor.

    diamond mask pads

    At least if it goes wrong, it isn't like they are really valuable.

    Cold weather and Team Wendy's pads

    If you like the micro fiber covering the All Star LUC pads are like Goldilocks said. Just right. IMO they are not too hard (TW) and not too soft (Wilson). The All Star also seem to be less affected by the temps.

    Cold weather and Team Wendy's pads

    Same here with my Diamond BL. Original pads in the Spring. TWs in the summer.

    Question re: Plate Shoes and Schutt HSM

    The HS Quarterback/Home Coming King/Girlfriend Stealer was named Wilson and drove a black and yellow Camaro is my guess.

    Equipment question

    Diamond BL is my recommendation for what you describe. The pads that it comes with are good enough for most games and can be upgraded later to TW. The frame is good for any level that most of us will ever see. I like the finish on the BL better than the painted finish on the standard model. Between the pads and the finish its worth the extra $30 IMO.

    Shin Guards with Mid-Cut Plates

    Agreed. Just get the right length. In this case, too long is not better.

    Champro Rampage

    @Thunderheads. Jeff- Lock it up please. It's sold. Thanks.
  13. Looking to sell an All Star steel that has had the lower plate removed and has been repowdercoated in gloss black. His is in very good shape and was used mostly as a back up. No dents or bends. This would be a great frame for a special occasion project (I can sent direct to Tony if you would like). I will ship this frame the next day for $30 PP F&F.
