Mag pads on other masks?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried mag pads on another mask? I’m curious to see how they’d fit and look.

 I know Max has them in his AS 4000 Steel version, but was wondering if anyone tried these in a Nike/Adidas or something else.

 Thanks

So, finally had a pair of mag pads laying around to test this out...

Here's an Icon with AS MAG pads.   Honestly, I thought they'd look a lot larger on here.  They fit great and feel great and now offer more protection.  Just need to black out that AS logo.

why black out the logo?

LOL - it's not an AS mask.  Plus, I'm one of those "no logo" guys as much as possible. Just feels odd to have a visible logo on a different maker's gear to me.  That'd be like sticking a Wilson "W" on an AS CP - just feels odd.

True, which is why it's not odd.  And their logo is small.  Honig's is same color as pads so I barely notice theirs as well, and they're my 1st choice for most masks.

The LUC-Mag pads have one thing going for them that convinces me to pick my FM4K out of my gear bag on a cold morning instead of my usual +POS ZRO-G or DynAlum... 

I already said it. Cold.

I trust and use nothing but Team Wendy's on all my masks... except the FM4K, and man, does it come in handy when the temperature drops below 50º. The TWs have this tendency to harden like concrete in cold temps (as we've discussed).

This is the reason I went to the Wilson memory foam pads. But I think I am going to go back to the TW, even though the first half of the baseball season here in the wet north is usually under that 50 degree threshold. I find that the TW pads loosen up for me by the end of the first or second AB. And find them more protective (whether they are or not) than the Wilson pads.

Did you all see the video from Ray @ Umplife on his FB page?  Looks like he's going to be getting into the replacement pad business.  He wants to offer pads similar to the Mag pads but with the reinforcement on the top pad as well as the bottom pad.  I think it sounds great and am looking forward to the product!

I did and I prefer Honig's pads anyhow, so this is a win-win for me!

I'm not finding that - what's the date of that FB post?  I'd love to check out that top pad!

No pics yet.  He mentions the Honig's pads and the AS pads,  then talks about putting a plate in them on both top and bottom pad.

Sounds as though he's going to use Honig's pads (his preference) as the guinea pig pads for his "plate" to test out ....
