All-Star Black Magnesium Umpire Mask with Grey LUC
Official Review: All-Star Magnesium Umpire Masks
Ty takes you inside All-Stars lightest umpire mask with their most protective padding. Inventory Note: Tan pads are a lighter yellow than the more orange color featured in video.
Decided to recently upgrade to the All-Star Magnesium umpire mask. Best call I have made all year. So light that if you couldn’t see it you wouldn’t know it was there. Have taken a couple of shots that seem to be in the center of the mask and the ball deflects off as advertised. Could not be happier with my new mask of feel any safer!
I have been a Wilson Titanium user since 2009. I figured I'd try something new. This umpire mask is very light at just over 1 lb. The feel is pretty good. The LUC pads feel comfortable, even though the bottom pad is huge. This mask wasn't meant for looks. All-Star got it right with this mask for umpires. Easy on and off with the strap. The convex frame isn't the best for tracking the baseball with ONLY your eyes. All in all, I like it and have attached the dedicated sun visor for it. However, your cap's bill covers it.
Just made this purchase to match up with the skull cap after receiving a minor concussion. The box was so light that my wife thought it was empty when it was delivered. Looks bulkier than a “normal” mask, but it is super light and comfortable.
Questions About This Product
|Q:||Is there a specific throat guard you would recommend for this mask? It is shaped a bit different than the Wilson or Force 3 shown in your throat guard video. |
– Justin Keel
Any umpire throat guard with the "Y" shape and connection points at the top will fit with this mask. The decision comes in where to attach it on the lowest crossbar; on the outside of the two down-bars or the inside? We recommend the inside so the throat guard can hang naturally and not pinned up against the LUC padding.– Ty Unthank
