I had HIGH expectations for this mask...heard about how great the frame was and how the memory foam was a "must have". I have to say I was extremely disappointed in the frame itself; purchased a prototype Diamond frame a few years back that has been my primary mask for all these years for $50, and to me it does have better protection on the jaw, sides, and extended throat sections. Wore this frame for a total of 3 games and took a couple of glancing blows to the face....felt and hurt like hell compared to what I had been used to for these past 5 years or so. Could never get the harness to have a good, comfortable fit either on this frame. The pads however are definitely A+. I have since transferred the pads and harness to my old Diamond friend, and will continue to use the pads and harness. It's just a shame that end of the day I overpaid for pads and and harness by $70. The frame will stay in the back of my truck as an emergency mask for the time being.
