  1. Smitty Poly-Spandex Pants

    Sold. Lock it up, @Thunderheads
  2. I have a used Force3 Equipment bag for sale. Used for 2 seasons with normal wear. No tears or rips. $50 + $20 shipping (it's gonna be a beast to ship) = $70 total Here's a link to the bag on Ump-Attire: https://www.ump-attire.com/Baseball-Umpire-Equipment/Bags-Tools/Equipment-Bags/F3-UMP-BAG_Force3-Ultimate-32-Umpire-Equipment-Bag-on-Wheels PM me for pictures of my actual bag. SOLD! I also still have a Wilson Ti mask for sale. Powder-coated matte black by Tony at Mask-It: $80 OBO
  3. I have a pair of the base and the plate. Size 40 in both. They are at least 32 in length because that’s what I normally wear in slacks but I always have the tailor make them longer so they don’t flood when I’m crouching. Permanent crease in both thanks to Men’s Wearhouse. Just used through last season. $45 each Or $80 for both PM for pics. Shipping included. PayPal only.
  4. Douglas Custom Gear

    @Thunderheads is exactly right. Jeff will take care of you and Douglas does a great job customizing. For me, they added plates for gap protection on the shoulder caps and wings for more protection around the armpits. Take a look...
  5. Are these all the same mask?

    Just FYI, the reason the all black mask looks like it has a longer throat guard than the black and grey is because it doesn't have the wrap-around pads. The black and grey one does have wrap-arounds giving it the illusion that it has a shorter throat guard.
  6. I bought the throat guard from him and he said he would ship it out on 10/11. I haven't received the item and he hasn't responded to my messages.
  7. CP under plate coat

    Looking sharp. Love the look!
  8. Field shoe?

    Man, the new NB plate shoe is no joke! Those things are beyond comfortable as well as protective. They're also not bad to look at either.
  9. Field shoe?

    The New Balance 950 V2 works for me. I find them very comfortable.
  10. ISO ... a unique throat guard

    Here's where you can buy the throat guard (SSK Spyder) that Alfonso Marquez wears... http://global.rakuten.com/en/store/kz-i/item/10001391/
  11. Champro magnesium question

    @kylejt - I had one of my titanium masks sent off to be powder-coated at Mask-it Sports. If memory serves me correctly, I believe Tony told me when I asked what type of masks he could do that magnesium couldn't be powder-coated because the heat involved would make it explode. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.
  12. My "Starter Kit" Strategy... Thoughts?

    Oh my bad. I only saw base shoes in your list. However, when the time comes to get new plate shoes, you will absolutely love the weight and comfort of the V3s!
  13. My "Starter Kit" Strategy... Thoughts?

    @Radie I hear ya. Yes, the hard padding "golf ball" is very protective...just so ya know. But, of course, any piece of equipment you acquire will based on personal preference. I absolutely hate shin guards having a third knee. I never understood the hatred towards buckles. To me, they're easier to get on and off and the Force3's buckles are super tough. Plus, the buckles are always on the outside of your leg and the odds are very slim of taking a shot there. I didn't see plate shoes in your list. Are you planning on getting New Balance to go along with your base shoes?
  14. My "Starter Kit" Strategy... Thoughts?

    @Radie Just out of curiosity, what don't you like about the Force3 shin guards? I personally love that they are low-profile and I don't feel a thing when I get nailed by uncaught pitches.
