You know how on those home renovation shows they always say it looks like a completely different house? 

:wow:

That is a dead se><y rig, @Jdc03270. Taking that vinyl off really lightens it, doesn't it?

It does for sure! It took like 2.5/3 ounces off the weight. (I don't have the best scale)

It almost looks like titanium without the vinyl

4 masks. I like this @BobUmp guy, I like him!

What do you need multiple CPs for? Ohhh... are you doing those kind of games where you wear a second CP, backwards, upon your back? In that case, carry on.

LOL, tourney weekends, multiple plates, bad weather.. Although, that backwards configuration could help with any knives thrown from behind the backstop from "those types" of parents.....

Isn't that why we go with the Schutt? So that we don't turn our chest protectors (read as Wilson rigs) into giant sponges.

For those of us who live where there is weather, it helps to have 2. My V-Sport is warm, but on a spring or fall day in the high 40s, I'm happy to have the insulation. But I got the Schutt for days when it climbs into the 80s or 90s.

I just got the Schutt @MisterB. It definitely feels like its going to make a difference! I really like the plates and their locations, its a solid protector. Still need to train it and break it in.

I read this as "for those of us who live where it is WARMER" and I was wondering what part of Portland you live in that is different than where I live at. Lol

Give it a week or so and there might be a video showing how to do this.

I was actually referring to the coming Schutt video as long as what he got fits what he wants to do.

Yeah I know, I realize know I phrased my comment poorly. It was more of an "in addition to" instead of "me as well."

UCLA Bruins colors. I painted the helmet and no label black vinyl Diamond pads with the columbia blue colors (Rustoleum "Spa Blue")

Total weight with the +POS harness is 14.7oz.

What did you paint the pads with? Beautiful mask.

It's just normal Rustoleum enamel spray paint. Had some left over from the helmet and decided to try it on these used pads. The paint is flexible enough. If I really bend the lower pad inward- like in half, there are two hairline cracks in the paint that run vertically along with the middle velcro strap. But put into the mask, there is no sign of chipping/cracking. We'll see how long they last. If you were really worried about it, I believe all the companies produce some form of aerosol designed specifically for vinyl. But they were easy enough to mask off and spray.

Is this actually a +POS? I've never seen that before...looks kind of Diamond-ish.

It does! 2 differences are the top cap protector is not the same as diamond, and only on lower bar instead of two. Looks like the 129 mizuno also

So I got a Chrome-Moly mask off here recently ( @acpar72 I believe) and decided to make it my "fun" mask. Something that looks cool but I might not end up using too often because the color would be a little out there. 

Boy was I wrong. 

I sent it off to Tony with the words "metallic bronze" typed up on the order form. I figured I'd get back a brown/gold ish frame that was awfully flashy and good for show. What I got, however, is this beautiful masterpiece that gets better and better the closer you look. Pictures don't do Tony's work justice this time, because the color is so subtle yet awesome it's hard to capture. Nevertheless, here it is but I promise you it's better in person.

Got this bad boy from playitagain for .99 cents. Chopped the rake off and spray painted it. (I wanted to see what a mask feels like without the rake and I think I am in love)

Yeah this was just a test for me to see how I like the lack of rake. Now I'm debating sending the mask he just did for me back to cut that sucker off. :question1:

 This one will most likely end up at Tonys door step soon enough. But first, lets see how long the spray paint lasts.
