I have listed my +POS SUL Mask on ebay.

It is the resin mask that they no longer make!

Interested...

Yikes.

I think you listed it too cheap. I'd bet you can get over $150 for it. I got about $125 for mine last year, and wasn't nearly as nice as yours.

I dumped mine after a concussion. Two direct shots in one game left me more stupid than usual. No more plastic masks for me, I don't care if they're weightless.

That's a super advertisment. Two shots left you stupid, you dumped yours after a concussion, and you bet he can get $150 for it. PT Barnum said....

Thumbs up

PT was correct. Heck, I got over $250 for my Douglas West Vest. Between that, and the SUL, the profit paid for my gear for the year.

Go figure.

Just being nosy, but has the $ arrived yet [for the WV]?
He!!, Douglas is still making the bloody things, or the near equivalent, aren't they? And selling 'em new for $100US, last I looked.

I never have liked the looked of these masks -- look kind of fake to me for some reason.

Isn't this the mask Plus POS stopped making after it was discovered that a spinning ball striking the mask just right could squeeze between the bars and hit the umpire in the face?

Yup. I guess there's a difference in the quality of the newer vs. older ones. I compared them directly, and didn't see much of a difference. I've concluded it's cult thing.

I had SUL mask, and there's no way you could get a ball in between those bars. They're incredibly light, and if you're doing mulitple games it's a plus. But they're fairly flat, and transfer a lot of energy to your brain. I prefer a more rounded frame, that deflects rather than absorbs. I heard there was a problem with the early SUL's, that was corrected quickly. I never had a structual problem with mine. I was quite stout, and I'd use it again if I were doing softball games.

Be sure of what you speak of,
If you remember back when they first came out, NCAA approved them and then quickly disallowed them becuase there were a few instances of a ball getting through.
Hell, even Sylvia Parsons(while she was still alive) at +POS told people that the shouldn't use them for baseball.

And yes, I have actually seen a foul ball go through the mask.
Luckily they Ump didn't get seriously hurt, a broken nose and some stitches for his face.
