  1. I can vouch for Odo-Ban as well. Good stuff and easy found at most retailers.
  2. @Thunderheads needs moved to Buy, Sell & Trade area please. I've had 3 Nike's - cheapest I've ever gotten one was $235 (then $265 and $275) for the record.
  3. And this is in Alaska, not the lower 48, so "race" doesn't automatically mean B&W like we may think here...let's remember that mixed race in Alaska is far more likely to be Native American & White versus what most would stereo-typically think of down here.
  4. I've had most of the CP's (Wilson Gold & Platinum, AA, Champion, All Star CPU4000, Douglas 13" & 15", Schutt, Adams, etc.) and I think Douglas is the best all-around CP out there if you can get the t-hooks and gap coverage. I'd not wear a Douglas without gap coverage as it hurts a lot when you take a shot off the gap without that plate being there. I love the Gold protection and fit, but I look huge in it and I'm already 240 so not a good look. The All Star fits very well and is surprisingly lower profile than you'd think also. Schutt/Adams has best breathability out there, but I hate the cheap Velcro being used. I'd love to see a Wilson Gold with D3O foam... or a Douglas with it, but I doubt this will ever happen and now that I'm out of the game, I don't have the motivation to do it myself. Best of luck!
  5. Someone on here did try this lightweight Adams CP and said it wasn't worth the funds. I believe his comment was that the padding is very thin and he wouldn't trust for anything above kiddie-ball. I have no dog in this fight, but if it were me, I'd find a used Douglas. I found one with the gap coverage and t-hooks used for around $140 and they're out there, especially this time of year.
  6. What?!?!? Me? Spend my money?
  7. All joking aside... my church group needs to use one of these! They stand there all day and wait on a perfect pitch to try and hit a HR... and I'm back there like... strike 13, strike 14, strike 15... are you even going to swing? Then, they swing and pop out.
  8. Yes, I'm becoming busier in ministry with each passing week it seems. Umpiring was beginning to hold me back, so I had to let it go.
  9. I listed these on eBay but I will sell anything outside of there as well if you prefer it that way. Links show the pics... feel free to make offers. Ohio High School (OHSAA) umpire uniform shirts (4) and a LS jacket - asking $30 shipped conUSA https://www.ebay.com/itm/123887353176?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 Smitty Football Referee pants (new, hemmed to 30" inseam) and a brand-new yellow black ball flag - asking $30 shipped conUSA https://www.ebay.com/itm/123881574567?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  10. Get the t-hook option and it wraps to you pretty quickly.
  11. @Thunderheads close this out please. Thanks
