  1. Took my first shot yesterday with my adidas icon and mag pads, untouched 70-something fastball, hardly felt it. I'm really impressed with these pads and felt them compress during the impact. My question, what pads do you use and why? I don't think I could go back to the crappy wilson pads like I used to have on my first mask.
  2. https://www.ebay.com/itm/224440444116?hash=item3441b164d4:g:~uAAAOSwmtRghz4V really nice extra long douglas, hard to resist but i don't need the shins
  3. where can you buy a blue one? i can only find silver and rainbow online, rainbow looks too distracting
  4. about to order one, i like the look of it on the grey one
  5. I would do $140 for the frame and harness. I would prefer to keep the pads
  6. Recently picked up this adidas icon, added the grey all star pads, tg, and visor. Other one is my fm25 recently powder coated by tony in navy, with the all star deerskin and tg. Love the look of both of them.
  7. I'm rocking the icon and grey pads right now, love the look. Highly recommend folks!
  8. Selling my mag, bought in June of last year, used in about 10-12 plates, and only taken one shot. Happy to sell with or without pads, harness, etc. More pics upon request, make me an offer.
  9. I don't have the V3, but took my first shot with the V2 yesterday in the shoulder. Felt it, but didn't really hurt. I do wonder how much different the protection of the V3 is though with the kevlar and all.
  10. Off the top of my head, May, Layne, Estabrook, Tumpane are also wearing one.
  11. Bump, here's the eBay link for anyone wanting it: https://www.ebay.com/itm/373538924768
  12. Anybody know what the typical turn around is for receiving your mask back? Tony received mine last Friday, the 2nd and I'm guessing it's been shipped back at this point but I never got any confirmation. Does he usually let you know when it's done?
  13. I think I have watched just about every American umpire clip on youtube, so I typed in the word for umpire in Japanese and found a bunch more stuff. I have no idea what they're saying in this but it talks about a few notable umpires and also explains some mechanics and rotations. Pretty cool. Also here's the word for umpire in Japanese in case anyone wants to do the same thing. 審判
  14. Wish I had been more knowledgeable about gear when I first started, bought a platinum and honestly am not super happy with it. But with these kind of rants no way anyone on this site gonna buy it!
  15. Found this on the local craigslist, anyone know how old it is?

  17. Not with that attitude!
  18. Well, I made a mockup in MS paint with a blue frame. Thoughts everybody? I think it would be interesting.
  19. Love the gunmetal. Thinking of getting my FM25 powdercoated either in that or maybe a royal blue. Would grey pads look weird with a blue frame?
  20. Well, update. I somehow got it in my head I needed an 80 to do regular season JV and an 85 to do varsity. Turns out that number is in the 60s for JV and high 60s for Varsity. I'm just not eligible for the post season which I wouldn't get anyway. That was a lot of stress for nothing
  21. Didn't realize the test was a state thing. I get some of the organizations confused. Agreed, it would be really helpful to know since I really dived into the rulebook for every question.
  22. Personally, I'm a bit disappointed right now. Just took the test twice today and got a 74 then a 78 after putting hours into it. Strangely enough, last year I didn't even OWN a rulebook, just a case book, and got an 84 first try. I'm wondering if you all think the test was particularly difficult this year. Also, is there a way for me to retake it again? I don't have much experience with the whole process since last year would've been my first high school season
  23. Thank you! I have the 2019 rule book, didn't realize this change was implemented and it really left me scratching my head.
