    They are a very nice option to the Majestic They fit great and have the same look and feel to the Majestic

    both materials can be used for protection products, I personally think the ABS works better. Hell you can cut up a mud flap and make that work if you have the right kind of rubber

    Holes in the TG are more oval and just to big for the post and IMO too long. Thicker shorter post will work but the Chicago screws are a much safer option

    Game Day Can you tell me what the temperature was when this happened. It could be a factor with the material used for this product

    not sure it failed, I believe it is just the wrong hardware being used. I always thought the same with the real shovel...replaced it day 2 with Chicago screws much safer IMHO

    Video is far to large to upload You can see the Samari/Mizuno Bolt and nut and the Chicago screws One thing i noticed about the bolt and nut is when you tighten it up it still has lots of play If you were wearing this TG with a mask with a normal rake extension nothing would have happened and the TG would have not shattered. The OP was wearing a non extended mask and the TG would have some play and movement back and forth. The batter swings and fouls the ball off the shovel 80-85 mph was the pitch speed so it most likely gained a few mph and could changed flight path before it impacted the left quadrant of the mask or TG The bolt/nut has some serious play when you make it tight and if the bolt was impacted at an angle it would torque and bend with most of the pressure being on the screw hole which is more oval than round . Hope this makes sense? I am not convinced this TG is a good idea to use with a non extended mask because of the Bolt/Nut combo and the holes being more oval than round. Poly carbonate can shatter and I am sure a more flexible ABS semi rigid but pliable may be a better option moving forward I also suggest replacing the bolt/nut with Chicago screws Image one I can spin the left side 360 Bolt/Nut I cannot spin right side Chicago male/Female screws

    They will hold up very well and they will be safer...Think hockey helmet

    Mizuno is ABS Samari is poly carbonate Both are good but I am thinking the ABS will have more flex when impacted. Might be one of those perfect shots and the Samari did the job Not a fan of the screws used and mine will be getting new Chicago screws
