Windpact pads on Wilson frames?

So, I finally rigged up my Windpact pads onto an old Wilson steel black powder coated frame. It seems to fit well enough to wear in a game but, obviously the pads are really designed for the UA frame that ships with these pads. My question is, if these pads work in a Wilson steel frame does that mean that will also work in a Wilson Ti frame? Or does the Wilson Ti frame have different geometry? Is anyone out there using Windpacts on a Wilson Ti currently? I've been contemplating a Wilson Ti acquisition which I will likely do whether these pads work in it or not...

Looks like EvoShield from here. 
 

@Scissors and @wolfe_man have already mounted WindPact pads in Adidas Icon frames (and, I think a DynAlum), but the Icon planform and the Wilson Dynalite planforms are virtually the same, save small details (arrowhead ear struts vs. horizontal ear struts; zero rake on XCG vs 15°-20° rake on XCG; slight difference in bullring & wicket) that really don’t affect how pads fit. I’ve mounted EvoShield WindPacts on three Rampage frames, now, and written about them at length. 

Eh, do whatcha want. :shrug: You’re not going to listen to us anyway.

As much as I would like to do as I'm told? Because that of course is what I live for...I don't have a choice.

Since acquiring my Windpact pads, there have not been any Evoshield frame only or Adidas frame only for sale. (If there were? I missed them...) I posted previously that a Rampage leaves my jaw line exposed and is not a good fit for me which is unfortunate because it's a great mask.

I'm going to try this Wilson/Windpact rig on Saturday and I'll report back...assuming I survive the trauma...

In the past, I have seen Adidas masks (with pads of assorted colors which would just get trashed by us anyways) on Ebay for really great prices. Something like $40 with $20 shipping. Which on the whole is not bad.

Man, they're hard to find under $99 now.  It's like everybody decided they were going to mark them up all at once - those and the Nike NRS frames, just jumped all of a sudden.

The NRS doesn't surprise me. But the Adidas does.
