Vanity, Vanity, All Is Van... Oo Look, a New Visor!

Recommended Posts

http://www.force3progear.com/product/pro-mask-sun-shield/

Force3 trotted out a brand-new visor for their Defender TM, and of course, it's designed to fit to the unique geometry of the Defender's upper cage. There are two tab slots instead of one, and there is a notch to accommodate the centerline mounting clip. It even has the Force3 logo (which should, and hopefully someday will, supplant the Big Yellow W) laser-engraved.

...

I'm shocked I beat @gnhbua93 in this announcement. If/when I get a Defender TM, though, it will surely have one of these on it.

You beat me to it and Mark Wegner beat us both. He is using it at the USA vs. DR WBC game tonight. That thing looks awesome!

I wasnt paying close enough attention. Was Wegner wearing a Force3 today? Or just the new visor?

Yes, he was wearing a Force3 Defender mask. He switched to it last season along with his crew chief.

Man! I never even noticed! And I like watching Wegner work too.

So now there is Winters and Wegner rocking the Defender. I wonder how many more will make the switch?

Wish it would've been out a month or so ago when I made an order, now it won't let me order. @JimKirk Is it not possible to do just the visor?

Upgrade, I also upgraded to the V2. Now, my V1 will be my back up mask.

So now the critical question – will these "rebels" be able to show the Force3 logo on their chin tabs, will they (still) have to manually obscure it, or is Force3 accommodating an oppressive, arcane, out-of-date Arrangement by producing pads for these fine gentlemen devoid of chin-tab artwork?

@JimKirk I couldn't get just that - it said it had to weigh more than 0 pounds.

Now I understand. We made a rookie mistake.

To get a shipping quote on the site, an item ordered by itself has to have a weight. We neglected to add a weight for this product.

Now fixed. Thanks for heads up.

Put this on last week and have done a couple plates with it. I worked in some rain yesterday, and it helps keep it out of your eyes too.

      Designed by umpires and made for umpires! The new Force3 Pro Gear bag has updated zippers, corner protectors, rugged wheels, new internal structure changes, a larger outside pocket, and a protective fabric between the wheels protecting the bag while you roll!
      Every part of this bag was designed for optimal efficiency and storage, keeping the weight to under 14 pounds!
      Features a 32″ x 15″ x 9″ compartment on top for all your equipment and a 6″ deep separate zippered bottom compartment for all of your clothing and uniforms underneath. The bottom compartment features two elastic straps to help keep your clothes organized and in place. This bag conforms to all airline specifications for checked luggage with a 62″ maximum allowance.
      The main compartment has two very large pockets that run down each side. There are also two large pockets that run along the front outside of the bag.
      Made of the highest quality materials to last for many years. No detail was overlooked from the leather luggage tag, padded handles, angled wheels for wheeling stability, to the length of the pull handle to minimize stress on the handle to prevent it from breaking or bending.
      This product is available from Ump-Attire.com.

      I’m sure you all could help me sort this mess out. Are these all the same model? (The one with the black pads on UA looks like it has a longer chin guard and glossier) And if so, why does Tumpane’s look huge?
