  1. Anyone found one they like? I grabbed this 4" Wilson from UA but the straps it came with aren't very long so it's got very little mobility. It'd be nice if F3 made/offered their own, but alas, I am stuck with third-party options it appears.

    Throat guard for F3 Defender V2

    Did anything ever become of those F3-compatible throat guard, @JimKirk?
  3. 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
  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

    PM me your address details and I'll see if I can get a quote for you or if I can ship it through work.

    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

    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.

    Throat guard for F3 Defender V2

    You wouldn't happen to have a picture of this, @Hkepuck?

    Adams XV-HDX received today thru hibbetts

    Yeah seems good enough for me. I'm gonna give it a go one game and then swap my UL harness on and compare. Might stick with the stock one, but we'll see.

    I just received my HDX today and it does have these. Now I'm wondering if I should modify it at all or leave it stock.

    Another casualty in trade war

    I'm not actually convinced that this is because of the new tariffs. More likely is that they used a different shipping company who charged brokerage and duties/taxes. In my experience, shipping cross-border with USPS gives you the least hassle, while DHL, UPS, FedEx, and the like will all charge $10-$20 in brokerage fees on top of the HST and whatever duties are assessed. I haven't noticed any changes in bringing stuff across the border recently, though I am going down to Buffalo to pick up some stuff at a warehouse next month, so that'll be the real litmus test for me.

    Brand New NEW BALANCE 460 V3 LO CUT Plate Shoes

    Have you tried insoles? Double-socking it seems like a recipe for blisters, but thick insoles work well for making a shoe wear a bit smaller.

    WTB black plate coat

    Yeah, so I gotta get it sooner rather than later!

    WTB black plate coat

    I'm considering the Honig's coat... Does anyone have one handy to check something for me? What's the country of manufacture? If it's the US, I might jump on it because it'll come across the border duty-free
  22. Well there's something you don't see every day. https://mediadownloads.mlb.com/mlbam/mp4/2018/05/09/2024119083/1525884530102/asset_2500K.mp4

    Adams XV-HDX received today thru hibbetts

    It's not terrible, but again, #JustCanadianThings. It's a 30% markup right off the bat due to the currency, then duties and taxes at the border This is why I was so annoyed when UA and Hibbetts sold out, because I was gonna get it shipped to a warehouse across the border in Buffalo but without that, it became kind of moot. Sidenote: I cannot see this eBay listing at all. No matter what I search, I get zero results.

    Adams XV-HDX received today thru hibbetts

    And I don't even feel well-protected or comfortable! I spent the whole night shimmying it around my torso trying in vain to find a position where I got both comfort and protection. Jeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeez talk about capitalism. I'm not about to buy it for $165USD when it's ~$80 brand new. I'll wait.

    Where? I can't find anything. Much appreciated. I wore my old WVG on the diamond for the first time this year and was rudely reminded why I dislike it so much.
