  9. All-Star started their “deerskin” with a particular color - one with an orange or pumpkin tint. You see that here with these pads on this mask of which of writing has only 12 remaining: https://www.ump-attire.com/Products/FM4000MAG-UMP-BK-TN/All-Star-Black-Magnesium-Umpire-Mask-with-Deerskin That color of deerskin could no longer be sourced, and there is a new color. The pads only version is here of the new color, which is certainly different: https://www.ump-attire.com/Products/FM4000MAG-RP-DS/All-Star-FM4000MAG-Umpire-Mask-Replacement-Pads-Deerskin So, you are correc

It definitely validates the biggest differences in sizes of the Wilson Gold CP are more to do with differences in width sizes rather than length ones.

  15. Good suggestion on Huaraches. Our stock is good. And on sale. Downside is D width only. https://www.ump-attire.com/Products/NIKE-HUARACHE/Nike-Alpha-Huarache-Elite-2-Turf-Shoes Adidas Turf Hogs are discontinued. Very little stock and sizes with anyone. Scanning other retailers, I found the most remaining sizes here: https://officialsports.net/product/newadidas-turf-hog-lx-low-black-white/ Another really good suggestion on grip is Under Armour Turf but these are going fast (another solid new item that ends up discontinued too quickly by manufacturers).
