I'm thinking of getting one but pricing and opinions are hugely variable. I'm more than happy with my current F3v2 mask as my daily driver, so to speak, but I'm still concerned about broken bats and other flying objects that could hit me in the side of the head, so I've been contemplating biting the bullet and grabbing a HSM to use in higher-level wood bat leagues. So far the ones in contention are (in order of preference) the F3v2 Defender HSM, the All-Star MVP4000, and the Wilson MLB Pro Stock. From my perspective, the F3v2 still has the upper hand because of the springs and the extra bit of steel that extends over the forehead area, à la Gary Cederstrom's custom Wilson cage, not to mention it's over $100 cheaper than the All-Star. I'm not terribly concerned about more weight from the HSM as I didn't find the extra weight much of an issue when I switched from my +POS Zero-G to the F3v2 so I suspect I'll be fine going to the heavier HSM-style anyway. Anyone have experience with any of these masks? Things I should know that I might have missed or might not have thought about?
All-Stars MVP 4000 Umpire This is the greatest in Umpire Protection. This has been worn only a handful of games. I have Umpired for several years and always worn a tradition mask. Tried this MVP4000 and I like the visibility and protection it gives but just don't like having my whole head covered. The Pads are removable for washing. Many Catchers also wear this helmet as it offer top of the line protection. This is really a great deal for an Umpire or a Catcher. Feel free to ask any questions! Bought it from another Umpire that umpired for a season and then stopped Umpiring. I only wore it for 2 games. Like New! MVP4000 Umpire Helmet
I just placed a call and received great customer service. I love my MVP4000 and I wear my system 7 shins and System 7 CP regularly. But I never go on the field with a Delta-Flex Harness on any of my CPs. It is so nice that most of the companies that work with us umpires have great customer service. You can't go wrong with All-Star. And as of today you can even buy a T-shirt to show your All-Star allegiance. http://all-starsports.com/products.php?prod=700
