  1. Let's be honest... this single thread should be one of the ones that never dies. Also.... sweet rig!
  2. I was an initial convert to the Schutt. Heck... would still promote the heck out of it. Just not for me. Lucked into a great price for an All American. Then lucked even further into a Cobalt prototype. Wont go back from either ever again.
  3. I can also highly recommend doing a search on here. There are dozens of great answer, plus photos, of the proper pant hem and showing the "break" as well
  4. Not sure if they will hit the reserve price.
  5. I'll take option #2 for $1000, Mayim.
  6. Lol... but if I do that, what will I do if something on the Cobalt breaks?😁 In all seriousness, if i decide to sell it, I will list it here first. There are some things I plan to sell immediately. But the AA will not be one of them.
  7. I was already tiring of my Gold when I first remember seeing Max on here (also, my memory is fuzzy... soooo). But he definitely was an influence on finally trying something different.
  8. @MadMaxwill probably speak of this more... as our resident Schutt expert. But yes, the D3O foam has always been that thin. I found it to much so and prefer a bit more padding in the form of my All American (now Champion) and now my go to CP in the All Star Cobalt. The D3O foam is a more advanced foam than the standard couch cushion foam you find in the Wilsons.
  9. I found that I really liked the MAG pads (I abhor leather pads so mine are microfiber). Going from Team Wendy, it took getting used to. But I plan to use the MAG pads on all my masks going forward.
  10. Beat you to it. He didn't do the deal. The mask is a bit banged up.
  11. Usually I am pretty good at reading the whole thing. Yesterday was a bit of a struggle-bus. Thanks for the help Aggie
  12. The local PIAS near me has a mask with a Markworth one of these. I was tempted to get one way back before SG came out with their Shovel.
  13. Are you selling the whole thing? Or just the lenses?
  14. I'm a big fan of the addition of the internet and televised games for MLB. I dont live near my closest baseball team (Seattle is almost 3 hours north of me) and I am over 10 hours from my Giants. I can count the number of games on both hands that I saw during our 3 pennant runs in the early/mid 2010s before the start of the post season. I've been to 2 MLB games since I moved here. One I happened to be in the Bay Area for. The other I traveled to Seattle, missing the first 3 innings because of traffic, to see the Giants play. Advance time to last year and definitely this year. I have missed MAYBE a dozen games this season because of work/commitments/ballgames. The MLB App has been wonky as all hell this season. Randomly blacking out the TV feed of Giants games while allowing me to tune in and watch Mariners games. But then I just switch to the radio broadcast. Yes... some times technology sucks. But I will always be a fan of it when I get to watch my team because I can't get down there to watch them.
  15. Anyone interested in seeing how it looks on tv... Hunter has one on in Milwaukie.
