All-Star Silver Magnesium Umpire Mask with Black LUC
OFFICIAL 2-MINUTE REVIEW: All-Star Silver Magnesium Umpire Mask
"Crazy light! Can't wait to compare to the Wilson Aluminum that I have used. Will edit with game thoughts." - Now that I have used it for a season, it's by far my favorite umpire mask. The only downside to the silver cage is that the silver coating fades to a dull white with wear (tucking it under my arm and holding it in the left hand during plays on the field). I've recently ordered the black version, hoping it doesn't do the same. I never had an issue with glare with my silver mask.
Love this new umpire mask. Super light, super comfortable. Took a foul tip square off the mask and didn't feel it. My only downside so far has been the silver grill having reflection issues with night game lights. Almost acts like a mirror and at certain angles it will reflect light into my eyes. Not a major problem but I would probably lean towards going with the black next time. Still love it.
I had the First Edition Force3 mask for the last 4 years, and loved it for its protection, but it was so heavy! This mask is undeniably the lightest mask I've ever owned with the same protection as the Force3. Love love love it!
Questions About This Product
|Q:||How is the weight of the mask compared to the Force3 Defender Umpire Mask? Any feedback on the oversized pads and the ability to call ball, strikes and outs? Visibility and protection as good as advertised??|
– Anthony Nunziato
This All-Star Magnesium umpire mask weighs about 12 ounces less than the Force3 V2 Defender masks. While we have limited customer feedback at this point, All-Star equipment is used and trusted by umpires and players at the Major League level. Major League Umpires would not be wearing this mask if vision and protection was lacking.– Scott Kennedy
