What mask is this?

Recommended Posts

About a year and a half ago a person from my other job said he hadn't umpired in forever, and gave me his old gear. Included was this mask frame (no pads or harness) and I can't figure out what make/model it is. It looks a lot like an All-star or Rawlings, but I haven't found any exact matches. Any ideas?

With the chisel-point chin guards, it's got to be a Rawlings or +POS or something like that. 

After looking at it more, it may be Rawlings because the old +POS had a wider chisel-point and then one that touched.

Pic below is the old +POS Jim Evans model.

@Young_Ump - is your mask lightweight or super-heavy?  Honig's had one with that shape and chisel-point.  I think it was hollow steel because it was lighter than most of those old masks.   Plus, the Honig's had the rounded chin vs. the more standard square.

Agree ...it's a Rawlings with the coating taken off!  You're welcome! :wave:

I may be wrong, but I'm sticking with Honig's.  I don't remember where Rawlings ever used a rounded chin.

......................speaking of @MadMax, I don't recall seeing many posts from him as of late.  Is he on sabbatical? @KenBAZ, everything ok in the land of sun and fun?

      Does anyone have any Wilson mask harnesses they don't want? I know they aren't that popular but I like them and need some for back-up masks.

      I have a brand new Adidas Icon for sale that I bought on impulse and I just don't need it. I bought it new a month ago and have never worn it in a game. Pics available upon request. I already trashed the pads but I have the original harness if you happen to want it. I also have an extra one of Ray's elastic (not neoprene) harnesses I can throw in if you want. $80. Free shipping. PayPal F&F.

      I've seen some discussion of the Estabrook type combo on the forum and want to test out some thinking on it. My motivation, of course, is to find as good protection as possible realizing that concussions will always be a risk.
      It appears from the forums that he is using a Rawlings Coolflo Matte Style Alpha Sized Base Coach Helmet (https://www.amazon.com/Rawlings-Coolflo-Matte-Style-Helmet/dp/B010R05ONA). I am seeking opinions on combining this with one of the Unequal inserts -- either the Solo (https://unequal.com/solo/) or Uncap HDR (https://unequal.com/uncap-hdr/) to add to the protection. Based on what I've read in the forums, I am also considering modifying my current mask to add a DeltaFlex facemask harness (https://www.all-starsports.com/fmhpro.html) to make it easier to one-hand my mask onto the helmet.
      Has anyone done this or something similar?  I am concerned less with how this looks as how it will work. One forum mentioned that the bill of this helmet might push the mask out too far. Comments (and please no "if you are afraid to get hit maybe you should find something else to do with your time")
