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.
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.
Outstanding umpire mask! Super light and comfortable. Great vision as well as good looks! Pricy but worth every penny! Great service from Ump-Attire.com as always.
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
