Top to bottom, left to right.

 

Top - All star fm4000 frame w/ Team Wendy’s pads.

Wilson WTA3010 catcher’s mask frame w/ Wilson visor and Rawlings Pwmx pads and Rawlings harness.

Bottom - F3 v2 defender wih no logo throat guard (works well with this mask).

Rawlings Pwmx frame w/ Wilson WTA3010 mask pads and Wilson harness. (Switched the padding and harness on the Rawlings and Wilson mask frames. Works nicely)

Bottom picture - Wilson dynalite steel mask w/fm4000 pads and Champion throat guard.

I also use an F3 V2 with a throat guard with no logo. Works better than my Markwort with Team Wendy pads. Felt nothing when hit in the mask with batted balls.

Removed the throat guard cuz I didn't like it, but the visor stayed.

Still trying to get used to having to wear this mask so tightly, and I've been lucky enough not to take a shot in it yet, but I'm only two games in, so there's time.

New throat guard to match that mask coming soon from Force3. Stay tuned!

Mizuno Ti

I put a sad face on your post because, once again, there isn’t a “glaring stink-face of jealousy”. I’m not even going to ask how you got one, because it’s nigh-impossible to repeat.

I got the chance to try one on. The Taiwanese National Team was playing the Brewers AA roster, and 3 of the 4 catchers on the TNT roster had one of these beauties. It weighs nothing. I am actually going to correspond with the KNT and TNT over the winter, and see if I can barter with them to bring me one this next spring.

Can we get an interesting mask to @MadMax... PLEASE?

This is the second time in less than a week he has reacted like this. First was my post about capturing a Nike Icon once again. And now @HCueds' rare Mizuno TI.

WON'T SOMEONE PLEASE THINK OF THE CHILDREN? Or at least think of Max? :rollinglaugh:

I got my All Star FM4000MAG about ten minutes ago.  After adjusting the harness straps a six stitch is no issue fitting under the mask.  And light?  Holy smokes.  I thought the Wilson Titanium was light, but the MAG seems like you're not holding anything.  I had to shake the shipping box just to make sure something was in the box.  Now to get those gray pads.

Well. we are talking about free range MadMax, so he should be ok.  And we all are appreciative of his well thought out and articulated review articles.  All hail MadMax.

I was thinking of getting my Nike Ti powder coated and  I found a local shop  down the road 3 miles from me . I called “local guy” up last week for a quote and he said bring it in and I can do it for $15 per mask or 2 masks for $20. Dropped my Nike and Wilson Ti off on Monday and picked them up this afternoon. Pretty happy with the investment.

As am I. Contemplating the unthinkable and lopping off the extension on one of my Nikes and powder coating it. I want to buy the blue Wilson pads and need somewhere awesome to put them.

Woah there neighbor, I mean it is unthinkable... unless you put a shovel on it. :wink:

If UA had the blue w/ black pads I’d experiment w/ my Mizuno but eh

These are the pads I want to put in the black mask.

I will use the Zett until I either luck into a shovel, someone figures out the best way to 3D print one, or (God willing) So figures out some way to put them back into production.

Well, you have 2 Nike’s now. You may as well do 1 of them 

 I probably will. Just a matter of if I do it myself or have Tony do it.

And I haven't been back to Corvallis in a few weeks. So there may be another one for me.

I did see a really nice Shock FX at my local Play It Again. Really nice shape. But the helmet is Forrest Green.

Well, green just will not do.
