    Hockey Style Neck Guard???

    It certainly would be better than nothing, but I don't know if it would kill enough impact to still not hurt you. Anyone up for testing?

    Hockey Style Neck Guard???

    Yes , the neck guard is to prevent a skate from cutting your throat literally. They do make throat guards for the hockey masks though for the same purpose we do.
  4. https://www.10tv.com/article/cool-it-ohsaa-tells-parents-calm-down-their-kids-games Published: 01/15/19 12:42 pm EST Updated: 01/15/19 05:25 pm EST The Ohio High School Athletic Association is passing on a message to parents and it is not mincing words. There has been a shortage of Ohio high school officials recently, and the OHSAA says fans berating the officials is a big reason why. The letter basically tells fans to “cool it.” “Make no mistake about it. Your passion is admired, and your support of the hometown team is needed. But so is your self-control. Yelling, screaming and berating the officials humiliates your child, annoys those sitting around you, embarrasses your child’s school and is the primary reason Ohio has an alarming shortage of high school officials,” the letter states. The letter goes on to say “According to a recent survey by the National Association of Sports Officials, more than 75 percent of all high school officials say “adult behavior” is the primary reason they quit. And 80 percent of all young officials hang up their stripes after just two years of whistleblowing. Why? They don’t need your abuse.” You can read the entire letter below: If you are the mother or father of a high school athlete here in Ohio, this message is primarily for you. When you attend an athletic event that involves your son or daughter, cheer to your heart’s content, enjoy the camaraderie that high school sports offer and have fun. But when it comes to verbally criticize game officials or coaches, cool it. Make no mistake about it. Your passion is admired, and your support of the hometown team is needed. But so is your self-control. Yelling, screaming and berating the officials humiliates your child, annoys those sitting around you, embarrasses your child’s school and is the primary reason Ohio has an alarming shortage of high school officials. It’s true. According to a recent survey by the National Association of Sports Officials, more than 75 percent of all high school officials say “adult behavior” is the primary reason they quit. And 80 percent of all young officials hang up their stripes after just two years of whistleblowing. Why? They don’t need your abuse. Plus, there’s a ripple effect. There are more officials over 60 than under 30 in many areas. And as older, experienced officials retire, there aren’t enough younger ones to replace them. If there are no officials, there are no games. The shortage of licensed high school officials is severe enough in some areas that athletic events are being postponed or cancelled—especially at the freshman and junior varsity levels. Research confirms that participation in high school sports and activities instills a sense of pride in school and community, teaches lifelong lessons like the value of teamwork and self-discipline and facilitates the physical and emotional development of those who participate. So, if the games go away because there aren’t enough men and women to officiate them, the loss will be infinitely greater than just an “L” on the scoreboard. It will be putting a dent in your community’s future. If you would like to be a part of the solution to the shortage of high school officials, you can sign up to become a licensed official at HighSchoolOfficials.com. Otherwise, adult role models at high school athletic events here in Ohio are always welcome.

    SOLD Nike Teardrop

    I'd like to sell/trade a Nike Retail Steel mask frame. It has a beautiful powder-coat, but I have 5 masks and need to downsize. I'll be posting a brand-new black Honig's frame soon too. Color is gunmetal/dark grey color with metallic flecks. It is a very sharp-looking mask! I'm willing to trade and add money towards gear... or sell outright. Just let me know your preference. Sale price is $47 shipped within continental USA. Thank you.

    New plate coats by OutWest Officials

    The Honig's website is a joke. I visited better sites in the 90's when the web was just starting up. I can't believe how many times they don't show all of a product, then say another color is available... but you can't order it unless you want to call them! smh And I like some of their products, but that $10.95 shipping on anything under $100 kills.

    SOLD Nike Teardrop

    Yes, I agree. I like to move things quickly (no patience LOL) so I keep dropping price, but I'm at the bottom now. I'll wait and see what happens, then if I have to I will keep myself or give it to a friend who may need a better mask.

    SOLD Nike Teardrop

    I'm kinda set on masks unfortunately, unless something really neat turns up. My preference is to sell this one but I would trade for something interesting. I just put it on eBay here recently and it has several watching it so hopefully it will sell soon.

    SOLD Nike Teardrop

    Bump.... willing to deal/trade/sell. The mask has no problems. It's a beautiful powder coat with no dents/dings or rattles. I just have 5 masks and need to move a few to buy some other gear. I'll be posting a brand new black Honig's frame in the near future. Thanks!

    Nike Mask Harness

    Um, I believe he was being sarcastic. I've bought black Nike pads new for $50 (harness for $25) so he was saying it's high.

    Question re: Plate Shoes and Schutt HSM

    Actually, Schutt has had a forehead cage for awhile now too. One could actually argue that it even covers more of the entire top of the mask than F3 does. I think Schutt actually had this prior to F3's new design.

    15” black Douglas. SOLD

    Update: Velcro is in very good condition. The best I’ve ever seen on a used Douglas. CP is 8/10 condition with only deductions needing the pad cleaned up a little and the normal surface plate wear. I’m tempted to keep it but really i like my Adams/Schutt CP.

    Thoughts on Rayflex mask harness

    Arik, quit pulling our leg and just do it! You and we all know that you want one and will order one, so just get it done already. Worst case scenario, you don't like it and can give it to me.

    You Get An EJ! And You Get An EJ!...

    Amen. Babe Ruth has gotten completely out of hand locally. Where did the good coaches go? All that seems left is people who want to bully or yell at the kids/umpires/opposing team, etc. I'm almost to where I'm only doing HS ball now - as I don't have the patience to put up with daddy-ball coaching for $40 a game. Although, Legion and Travel ball last year was much better than normal.

    SOLD Nike Teardrop

    Update: Frame weighs 0.9 lbs (14.4 oz) per US Postal scales. For comparisons sake, a Nike Ti weighs 12-13 oz for frame only and 15-16 oz when fully equipped.

    Thoughts on Rayflex mask harness

    I believe Ray was making the point that it is more comfortable. Some of us hate the poly webbing because it is stiff and hard on the top and side of your head - or maybe because the side support straps of poly have a tendency to "bubble up" or turn a bit on you and then make it fit uncomfortably. Ray uses neoprene which will offer a better fit and feel against your head. In short, it offers an improved mask fit and will feel better/more comfortable while you wear it. Full disclosure: I haven't used Ray's harness, but I understand and support his styling. It makes sense, I just don't have the $28.... yet. I am sure that I'll end up with at least one eventually. And here's his picture of it from the PDF file on his FB page.

    Oh, and I can also include a brand-new black Zett if anyone is interested with the mask. If you buy with mask, I'll include for $15. Otherwise, I'd need $25 shipped to cover shipping costs. It's still in the plastic. Zett is gone. Thanks
