Force3 Defender Umpire Throat Guard
Garden Grove, CA
Out of pride I almost removed the throat guard. I'm glad I didn't. Same day I took a high and inside foul tip directly off the throat guard. It worked like a charm. My only concern was it completely deformed the throat guard. I was able to bend it back into shape but wondered how many more this one can take.
I took a shot to the throat from a 60-70 mph foul tip, the guard did its job, but now the structural integrity is comprised as it is now bent. Apparent this metal is not as strong as a face mask.
Love the design integration with my Force3 Defender V2 mask. It looks sharp and does exactly what it's supposed to. My only complaint is that it weighs a little more than I'd like, but, just as I got used to the added weight of the F3 mask, I fully expect I'll get used to this.
