All-Star Black Magnesium Umpire Mask with Black LUC
Official Review: All-Star Magnesium Umpire Masks
Ty takes you inside All-Stars lightest umpire mask with their most protective padding.
I have 3 games with the new All-Star MAG. It is very light looks great and my vision is better than my previous mask. Previous mask is the Diamond ix3 with Team Wendy pads. The All-Sar is lighter and offers more protection. I went with the all black as was my previous. My only complaint is the mask harness on the All-Star does not have enough adjustment and at $225 I should not have to pay for a replacement.
Went with this umpire mask just by happenstance. Best choice. Insanely light. I took a foul shot directly in the face and felt nothing. This mask is well worth the money.
Great product. Solid umpire mask, with great protection. Previously used the Wilson Dyna-Lite, and this mask takes the impact of baseballs MUCH better. What would have caused a headache with the old mask doesn't have the same issue with the All-Star Magnesium.
Questions About This Product
|Q:||Has there been any testing that compares the All-Star to the Force 3 as far as protection?|
– Tom Harmsen
I don't have any testing results to share but can expand on the protection of the two masks. All-Star trusts in a light-weight frame from injected molded magnesium creating a mask with no welds. The multi-angular frame works to deflect force away from the center. The ABS plastic plate in the bottom chin pad disperses force evenly. Force 3 trusts the S3 suspension system. Much like a car's suspension, the F3 Defender will absorb an impact on the outer frame, keeping the majority of the force from the frame against your face. The pads of the Force 3 Defender also have a reinforced Kevlar lining to deperse force.– Ty Unthank
