Masks

I know this gets discussed frequently here (but basically I'm too lazy to dig through the old posts.)
I need a new mask for next season. What recommendations do you have?
Thanks

Freddy Kruger or Jason are two of the most popular.

I have an ultralight from Diamond and love it. It has a double bar frame and the pads have that water wicking material and it's very light weight. It's realitively inexpensive too.

I just bought the K91 Single Bar w/Doeskin from Honig's. I've used it four times, and dig it. Light, and more vision than I had with my Davis mask.

Well, I guess "more vision" is subjective ...

I don't think Tim has ever taken a bad hop playing 3rd base in a game where they use Red Dot softballs, which are harder than baseballs. There is nothing soft about Red Dots.

Go buy a used one from a hockey supply store. Not only will they have been tested with pucks, but the paint job will get you noticed.

Id say if you want an Hockey Style, Go with All-Star, same as what MLB guys use. If you want regular, id go with a West Vest/ Wilson Dynalite.

Does anyone still manufacture/sell a navy blue mask ? I'd like to buy one,
but can't seem to find one. Any help would be appreciated.

I believe you can still get a West Vest mask in Navy. Also, there are plenty of top-of-the-line masks by Rawlings, All-Star, Wilson, etc. which come in a variety of colors.

The Diamond mask I talked about comes in Navy. I have a navy and a black. The diamond comes in Black, Navy, Royal, Red, Gray, and Hunter Green. The Gray actually looks pretty cool, but I can't imagine using a Navy Green one but they sell it none the less.
