Mmmmm... Sky Blue Metallic. Still one of my absolute favorite mask colors. Perfectly matches to the 2016 Sky Blue that Majestic introduced, yet complements both the lighter Sky Blue of the 2010 and “classic” fare, and TheOfficialsChoice’s Bermuda Blue. 

Tony’s Liquid Gunmetal is also really snazzy. What’s nice about it is that it pairs really well with with black, tan, or navy (shudder) pads.

I’ll have to say (not to go off rails of the powder coating topic) but I got the AS Cobalt SC and it’s pretty sexy paired with my powder coated Gunmetal 4000MAG

I’ve got to brag on my man Tony! I just sent him my Allstar 4000MAG and had it powder coated gunmetal. Not only did he do a great job, but he’s also just a great guy and takes a lot of pride in his wo

I do love that color!  And anything with bass boat metallic sparkle in the coating is sure to catch my eye and I don't even fish much!  I might have to copy you my friend.

I do have to say add that while I really like all 3 I just got back from Tony, that brushed aluminum one is really standing out to me.

I'm a fan of the solid medium gray (battleship) ..it's actually just a medium gray primer that Tony covers with a clear coat .....looks really nice!

Just received my pandemic project back from Tony.  I chopped the throat extension off my steel All-Star FM25 and sent it off to Tony/Mask-It for powder coating in gloss black.  As always great service a fast turn around. Tremendous quality finish. This frame has a sentimental place as it is came with my first set of gear.  Everything else has either worn out or was up graded.

@wolfe_man, I too am also sending Tony another All-Star Mag4000 to have it done gunmetal. A guy at a camp this weekend had a fit over my 4000 that Tony did a few months back. He said, “let me buy this one from you and you can order a new one.” I called Tony yesterday to make sure he was okay with me getting the order sent directly to him. He said, “send it on.” Tony is such a great guy to do business with!!!

Yes, he's great!  The masks even feel better when you get them back. I had a buddy who just got one down say that to me this past weekend.  He couldn't believe how smooth the masks feel in his hand.

I had Tony powder coat a mask the was traded to me from @wolfe_man, thanks by the way, I had Tony do it in a copper/bronze color and it turned out amazing. Another happy customer

That's a good color too.  I like how it came out!

What's your take on the M-Bag from UmpLife?  Is it worth the money in your opinion? Feel free to IM me so you don't have to give feedback publicly. Thanks!

I like it, I have several different mask “bags” and it very similar. The only difference is it’s not really a “bag” per say, more of a sleeve, which I really like. Really good quality, overall Ray did a great job, I’d recommend it

Just got my Wilson Ti and Adidas masks back from Tony. Matte black for the Wilson and gunmetal for the Adidas. Tony is a great guy and does outstanding work.

Greg,

Those look great!  Are you using Rawlings pads still or Honig's or something else?

 

Thanks!

Rawlings. I remove the logo with a seam ripper. They are a great value IMO.

I knew the ones on the Adidas were, but wasn't sure about what was on the Wilson Ti. I have never tried them, but they fit those masks well.  I may have to give them a shot.

If by chance you happen to order the gray, keep in mind, the actual color is much lighter than the picture on Amazon. I like it, it goes well in a silver mask with the gray smitty shirt, but it's n ot as dark as it looks in the pictures.

and yes @Thunderheads I think they are great. I like the clean look of them as well. Very much like the Nike pads without the swoosh.

@Thunderheads and @wolfe_man, I cant speak to how they feel during a game. But I lucked in to a Rawlings Titanium at a really good price (you know... cause reasons). And they came with black Rawlings pads.

They are used but still in good shape. What I like about them is they have that thick pad feel of something like Honigs and All Star. But they have a microfiber covering that is the part that touches your skin.

I'm looking forward to giving them a go this preseason to see what I think. If I like them, I might spring for them for what ever masks I end up keeping.

Thinking of sending my Rawlings to Tony and doing Gunmetal (as that looks sweet!). Does anyone have a photo of a gunmetal and a titanium mask side by side so I can see the color difference?

This is a pic of black matte (bottom), gunmetal (top LH) and brushed aluminum (top RH).  I think the brushed aluminum looks like a new Nike Ti color.

      Hi everyone, i am looking to upgrade my mask. I currently own the champro drigear hollow wire mask(18 ounces) as a initiation mask but i'm calling higher leagues so i might want to upgrade to a stronger mask. I am concerned about weight though, i would like to get a strong but light mask. I've been looking at the allstar black magnesium mask(17.3 ounces). To be honest i'm not really sure what material is strongest. Magnesium, titanium, steel. Money is not really the issue. Just need some advice from you guys when it comes to material and fitting. 
       
      Thanks in advance.

      All, ...
      special request .........  anyone have a beat on either of the special masks that MLB did last year for 4th of July and Memorial Day, etc?  The camo and the red white and blue?    All special masks last year are shown below .......  PM ME please ....  (this is for a special game/s I'm involved in)  THANKS!

      This is just a post out of sheer curiosity. I was wondering what is everyone's, current, primary mask. I'm not as interested in all your masks as there is already a thread for that ( see "Mask Porn"). I'm just curious as to the mask that you use on a regular basis. 
      I currently still use my Nike Ti on a regular basis.

      I'm sitting in a Texas Roadhouse after calling 9 baseball games over the past 3 days in 117°+ Arizona heat, watching the Mets get shellacked yet again by the Dodgers, when I notice the camera zoom way, way, waaaaaayyyyy in on Travis d'Arnaud and the Force3 Defender mask he's wearing. Travis is new to the Defender TM, having previously used the Mizuno Samurai HSM. The Samurai is one of the most thoroughly padded HSMs on the market, but doesn't get enough play besides the sleeker, more sculpted All-Star System 7's and Easton M-series.
      With the camera zoomed in on the telltale, trademark springs of the Defender, I begin reading the closed captioning of the two ESPN broadcasters discussing the details of the mask, and how it is progressively suited to reducing impact force and the likelihood of concussions. The camera pans to show all three spring points, and even shows the profile shape, with the broadcasters pointing out the standoff distance. They go on to say several catchers in the league are now using it, and there is now a hockey-style version on the market (the Defender HSM).
      In a move of directorial brilliance (the guy in the truck should get an Emmy nomination), the camera then pans to zoom in on Lance Barksdale as PU for tonight's game... wearing a Wilson Titanium Low Profile... with Wilson leather wraparound pads...
      Sigh. Facepalm.
      The broadcasters then contrast the Defender TM against the Wilson TiLP, and how little protection it affords the umpire. Barksdale's nose is on the verge of poking out of the eyeport, and the mask is nearly flat on his face. One of the broadcasters laments, "I never saw the point of that mask".
