Mask Porn?

If the straps were black or a really dark grey that would be one of the sexiest masks in existence imho.

I kinda like the straps. It adds to the brightness of the mask, which is kind of the point when you put gray pads on a silver frame haha.

If you were wearing a black shirt it probably looks badass, but with blue and cream I would say there should be a bit more contrast. But, hey, to each his own. You were willing drop the big $$$ to get one, so who am I to critique? :P

Someone (maybe @Thunderheads) posted a picture of the All-Star catalog and these pads were featured. Last I checked they're not listed on the website but you can call and order. 

No, ...it wasn't me ....it was @acpar72 that posted that catalog

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.

Just curious - what are they getting for the pads from All Star? $40?

I get to add another lucky find to my mask collection. I LOVE working in and around a city that has two Division 1 and multiple Junior College and D2/3 schools near it!

Thinking of sending it to Tony and getting it done in a black or other dark color so I can mix and match with the other Nike.

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.

Getting hit while wearing this mask is weird.  It gives a "TINK" sound and I always wanted to check the ball for cuts afterwards.  I always thought the mask caused damage to the ball.  It's heavier than other masks, but I have an 18.5" neck so the weight never bothered me.  What bothered me was it kept pulling down the bill of my hat no matter what I did to the straps.

Wonder if one of the RayFlex mask harnesses will solve that hat problem?

Lol. Pretty sure there is an emoji in the list that has that. That or Warren needs to get on that. Lol

I've hit that place once or twice a week for the last year in the off chance I get lucky again. I finally did.

I haven't had that problem at all. Do you wear your hat fairly tightly or loosely?

Rawlings Pwmx frame w/ Wilson WTA3010 mask pads and Wilson harness. (Switched the padding and harness on the Rawlings and Wilson mask frames. Works nicely)

My latest.........It's the Campro Magnesium. Not sure why someone would get an All Star, at over twice the price. Had to ditch the pads and harness, of course.

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.
