  1. Force 3 V3 Chest Protector

    My original contention still remains. If you need a hard plastic cover for your collar bone and shoulders, when don't you need one for your heart? There's no logic in that design. Yeah, they updated it by putting hard plastic inside, but why can't they do that all over?
  2. Slim-fit Pants

    That's great info, as I'm about the same size, and my plate and base pants are a bit too "flappy". I may go combos, and have the base pants taken in a bit at my tailor. Thanks!
  3. Poly spandex in MLB?

    I wish that was me. I did run a minor league mascot out once, Thunder from the Lake Elsinore Storm. Years ago, The Chicken would wander the Q, grab your beer and down it if you weren't paying attention. He did that to me once, and at the same time grabbed girlfriends @ss. Normally I would have decked the cad, but it was The Chicken.Ted got away with lots, including slugging Barney.

    I'll see your Elbeco, and raise you a raft. (but still wearing the golf pants)

    Oh, and my 8 stitch hat fits in there just fine.

    Some more pics. The velcro straps I've been using on my other frames don't work with this one. So I used the rubbery ones from an Easton, as they were thinner. Still working on dialing the whole rig in. Sight line is better with the TW pads, as the frame is a bit closer to my eyes. It's riding a bit high on my jaw, but I can adjust that. Overall, this is my new main mask. It fits my face, has TW science, and looks badass.

    Just for comparison, here are four frames for comparison. From top left, clockwise. Standard Wilson Champro Mag Honig's Diamond Bad pics, but the profile of the Champro and the Honig's are much more round that the flatter Wilson and Diamond.

    So yeah, a C note for a cool frame. Agreed.

    And why is called the Rampage? Sounds like I should be mad about something.

    Just got back from a week in Palm Springs, and the box just showed up a few minutes ago. Here are some initial thoughts. Pretty damn light. On par with Ti and hollow tube aluminum. Maybe an ounce here or there, but hard to beat for the money. Sunshade fit in nicely. I do not trust the pads. I can squeeze the lowers, and feel the bars. That's a "NOPE" for me. TW's will be loaded before I step on a field. I do like memory foam in my shoes and bed, though. The black frame is still a bit shiny, so I'll take some steel wool do dull it down a bit. I do that with most frames, so no biggy. The harness can't be adjusted big enough for me. I like a loose rig, and adjusted all the way out, it's not loose enough. I wear a 7 3/8" hat. Even when adjusted out, the strap is so wide it touched my ears. I really, really wanted to like it, even though it's fugly, but it'll go. I think the material was made to use with a catchers helmet, as it's pretty grippy. I like the shape of the frame, with lots of angles for deflection. It's not a "New View" low profile, by any means, but the view is pretty good. I know it will change with TW pads, as they're not as bulky. Got my 8 stitch hat in there okay. We'll see with the TW pads, but it should work. Comes with a bag, which is nice. These are only my personal, non-professional opinions. And no, I did not stay at a Holiday Inn last night (it was the JW Marriott)

    Don't know how cool it is until it shows up at my door. And I'm not going to recommend the site until I actually get it. But if you google a bit, you can find them.

    That harness reminds me of the Bike jockstrap I wore in Junior high. (No, I didn't wear in on my head)
  13. Champro Magnesium

    I found a different site, where I was able to get the CM83, with a sunshield, delivered for $110. And, I was able to get my mother-in-law to pay for it. TOP THAT! (birthday check, actually)

    There's a discount site that's offering this frame with two different pads, Dri-Gear or Bio-Fresh. And thoughts on the differences? Style # CM83: BIO FRESH-Enhances products by giving them a shield against odor and bacteria. Style # CM84: DRI-GEAR- Allows moisture to escape, keeping you cool and dry.

    My first question is always, Can I fit TW pads in there? I gave my older Champro Mag to a MiLB umpire, as a backup, so this might be it's replacement. Far better looking than the polished silver, IMO, plus no glare.
