    Thoughts on Rayflex mask harness

    In what ways is it better than the stock harness? I have an F3v2 and find the stock harness totally acceptable.

    Throat guard for F3 Defender V2

    Did anything ever become of those F3-compatible throat guard, @JimKirk?

  4. I... words fail. What in the world is he thinking?

    Mask Porn?

    My former primary mask, but now backup to my Force3 Defender v2, +POS Zero-G, powder-coated matte black, with Wilson memory foam pads, Wilson 4" throat guard, Champro visor, and stock harness. The factory powder coating wasn't very good and started to chip almost immediately, so I spent the $100 CAD to get it resprayed and this seems a much sturdier finish, as it's already taken a few shots but just shows some scuffs and no major damage. Still quite like the mask, and I might use it for lower-level ball, but I don't do anything below about 17U (Midget in Baseball Ontario parlance) these days, so it probably won't see much use anymore.

    Mask Porn?

    I haven't had that problem at all. Do you wear your hat fairly tightly or loosely?

    Mask Porn?

    Removed the throat guard cuz I didn't like it, but the visor stayed. Still trying to get used to having to wear this mask so tightly, and I've been lucky enough not to take a shot in it yet, but I'm only two games in, so there's time.

    Mask Porn?

    My new F3v2 with tan pads, black frame, and sun visor. I ended up dropping the throat guard as it didn't fit very well, but I will probably still grab one at some point, when I can find one that works with the shape of this mask. Might get round to uploading a couple pics of my (now-backup) +POS Zero-G in all black.

    FS: 12" (M/L) West Vest Gold

    I guess it depends where it'd be going, but if you're interested I could also see if I can ship it through work, which might be a lot cheaper/possibly free.

    Hey, it's a discount for you either way if you're in the States
  12. Asking $100CAD plus shipping (so about $70USD + shipping). Comes with the original harness, which hasn't been used in ab out three years, but does have some games on it. PM me here for quickest response

    Time between games

    When I used to do house league games, we had about 15 minutes between end of game 1 and start of game 2. It was painful. However, it's the same even with rep tournaments. Games are generally scheduled at 9am, 11:15am, 1:30pm, and 3:45pm, each with a two hour time limit. Those are extremely difficult to stick to, and usually unless there's a game that finishes way ahead of time, this schedule is never stuck to.

    Adams XV-HDX received today thru hibbetts

    Fold them over each other, then either electrical tape or gaffer/hockey tape them in place. Works for me when I don't want excess strappage hanging around.
