How do you like the con-cushion? I know its been discussed before. Also... why the HSM and traditional masks?

I like the con-cushion. I haven’t gotten hit up there in a while so I’m not sure how much additional protection it offers. But you don’t really feel it once you get it on. I have noticed if it’s too low/too loose it sits weird on your hat. 
 

I bought the HSM once Ump-Attire put them on sale. Figured I’d try it out. The visibility is fantastic and it’s pretty comfortable. I’ve worn it 4 times now and I definitely plan to keep using it throughout the year.

I haven't posted here in a little while so here's my current rotation. From left to right: 

Mizuno Titanium with tan Team Wendy pads and a Belgard harness. 

Force 3 HSM with Samurai Gears throat guard. 

Black All-Star magnesium with the deerskin pads. Belgard harness as well.

Both traditional masks also have a black Gerry Davis con-cushion. I have another Samurai Gears TG that I put on the traditional masks, depending on which one I'm using.

Loving that Mizuno!!!!!  That's a neat looking frame!

1. Adidas with All Star MAG grey pads (I need a new pic as I've added a silver visor now too)

2. Nike Steel/Wilson (your call) with All Star MAG navy pads and Spyder in gunmetal.  Markwort rainbow-colored visor (more blue than anything else).

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?

I haven't seen a pic yet that can truly give the gunmetal it's proper respect. Its a very good color and looks even better in the sunlight.

It would offer a good contrast.    To each their own.  If you can match it to a shirt, then it's fair game as far as I'm concerned.  Someone on here has a very unique gold frame with tan TW's.  You'll get some guys that say they'd never wear it, but it isn't their mask. There are times and places where a unique mask is not only appreciated but almost needed.

My FM4000 MAG w/ the All-Star prototype 'rainbow' visor ....

You need to paint that visor matte black.  Krylon spray paint.  $6.49 and it'll look a whole lot better on that frame!

Well, I made a mockup in MS paint with a blue frame. Thoughts everybody? I think it would be interesting.

"I need ...."  ??   Nawwwww ;) 

YOU NEED... for my sake.  I don't like the rainbow blue on the black frame.  It'll look great on a gunmetal or silver frame though!

Looks okay to me.  Might look nice with a royal blue shirt during the summer.  I have a buddy that has a royal blue Wilson mask he wears with TOC royal blue shirts in summer ball. I think he posted a pic of it in the equipment section when we talking about Tony's powder-coating.

Sigh, I know Jeff.  We're in navy states.  And you're right, it's personal opinion.  It does look fine, but see how it could look?  :Cool2:

Imagine this all blacked out with black pads too.  Awesome!  Might need a Batman logo on the chin piece then though.  :HS

By the way, love the Shovel on this mask!  I like my Spyder, but the Shovel looks great too.

I found that my Spyder didn't hang properly on my old Diamond until I got it chopped. It would either sit to far back on the inside. Or to far forward on the outside. BYMMV

Because I worry about Keith, here is a better photo of my MAG w/Shovel and smoke color visor. No spray paint cans in sight.

I'm not sure how I would feel about painting it black. As the visor is actually visible with the Cobalt skully.
