    F3 throat guard?

    I see what you did there!

    F3 throat guard?

    I tend to agree. While neat, it limits what mask you will most likely wear it with, which could be by design I suppose. Though, I prefer to avoid logos when I can on my umpire uniform.

    Metal throat guard straps

    I notice the new F3 metal throat guard appears to have gray straps. Whereas the Spyder has black.

    F3 throat guard?

    Looks like F3 might be getting a throat guard... look in the bottom left-hand corner of this picture.

    Ump Attire Black Friday

    I am told the average age of an umpire in Ohio is 54. By that standard, I'm young at 40.

    Smitty making shoes

    Smitty makes me chuckle. They take everyone else's gear and put their logo on it, then go right out charge the same amount as the original product. See Smitty F3 mask, Smitty Douglas CP, Smitty New Balance shoes, etc. If you're going to rip off partner with others, then at least offer us a deal for your product. If not, why wouldn't I just use F3, Douglas, NB instead? I get the marketing thing, but there is no reason for me to buy anything with a Smitty logo when I can buy the "real" version for the same money.

    Nike Steel "Teardrop" with new Black Zett TG

    Another pic when laid on my car seat which is dark grey/black interior on a silver car. The lighting wasn't great here, but wanted to show a little more detail. My seats are dark grey (almost black) with a lighter gray on the seating area. The doors and trim in the top of the photo are black.

    Future Nike Apparel?!

    I thought Nike didn't end up getting the contract. I remember another post on this Nike MLB discussion.

    Mizuno 2QA-122 w/ Black TW Pads and Zett TG

    Click on his picture, then when his page comes up, click "Message".
  13. This is a very sharp-looking mask! Vinly has been stripped and it was powder-coated dark gray with metallic silver flecks. Very sharp and pics can't do it justice! It would look great with either black or tan TW pads in my opinion. Only looking to break even and asking $65 shipped. I'll even throw in a new Zett if you buy it today. Thanks

    Future Nike Apparel?!

    I think the jacket and logo is legit. The pic is of a jacket laying flat, which will naturally have wrinkles that could distort the logo. Now, does this mean that Nike is making MLB umpire gear? I have seen other Nike MLB team gear.
