That is not what I said:

After talking to all the mask retail distributors they all had the same exact story:

Wilson has told them that Wilson will not eventually sell harnesses and pads.

The reason is that Wilson feels that masks need to be replaced (i.e planned obsolences) after 100 plate games (which is stupid, marketing only).

What Wilson said to me was:

"Because all catchers in America are required now to wear HSM (hockey styled masks) there will be a time soon when that style mask is the only style available."

Joe West told me personally (in an e-mail that I posted) "masks will still be available for the future."

Make your choice boys.
