Guess I still have the honor of saying I'm the only one with a smoke colored visor.

I wanted the smoke.

Paint it.  If I get one it will be spray painted or painted somehow.  A blue visor on a black mask is.... ugh, not good IMO.

a blue visor on a black mask w/ gray pads is great when you still have to wear Navy! :D

Personal preference. To each their own, but all black mask with black pads looks silly to me with a tinted blue visor. 

Grey pads and blue visor is fine, navy pads with blue visor is fine - but not black on black IMHO. Again, personal prefence. YMMV

Smoke/silver matches everything.  I can only hope AS is getting these in soon also.  If not, I again call into question their product testing/marketing group's touch with reality.

Oh yeah? Wait until you see my black with doeskin with said blue visor...that will be silly.

But, I will be cool, if not "cool".

I'm just disappointed in AS again. It's becoming a trend with them unfortunately.  First, the Cobalt CP wasn't up to my expectations after such an encouraging promo/start.  Then, the helmet just doesn't do it for me either. Finish is bad and just doesn't fit my head right - plus not sure I love the look.

Now,  I have loved the mag mask all along and AS did test out both a silver and a blue visor - but then they only bring a blue to market?!?!?!  I mean I get it that the product line is called Cobalt, but does the visor have to be that color too?

UPDATE: Well, unfortunately, it doesn't look like the smoke is going to come to fruition.   Sounds like the feedback from All-Star's retailers, Ump-Attire @JimKirk and others, the preference was blue.   

P.S.  Don't shoot the messenger!!!!!!!!

Not for a lack of trying on my part. When @Matt Arcovio asked me my preference, I said "smoke."

Not your fault…

but seriously All Star?  You can’t sell both in the marketplace when you’ve already had both made for testing? 🤯

I didn’t really realize how sweet these mask were until I bought one on Mad Max’s recommendation. I plan to get a black/black with additional tan pads for next season. Visor of course too l

I bought two visors, but haven’t painted one black yet. I’m thinking it over…

I have 2 mags that are both black currently, but I'm seriously considering sending them both to Tony and getting a shiny silver one (brushed aluminum maybe) and a gunmetal one done.  Gunmetal would get these leather pads and the silver would get gray pads (navy during HS).

Can anyone please explain why the "wings" of this sunvisor were designed and built to extend OUTSIDE the mask frame? This thing is not going to last me beyond one season and I won't replace it when it breaks but, it's absolutely going to break when hit by a pitch.

$12 shipping on a $19 item is fairly outrageous, too...

All Star tested them and says they won't break, so I'd go back to them if it does.

Order from AS directly for $9.99 S&H under $99 - then FREE if over that.   However, they're out of stock right now.
