I was going to say that but it just seemed way too easy.

And why do you want one? Looks inferior to me.

The same reason that some guys are desperately looking for those pullover, short sleeved smocks. They want to be like their MLB heroes.

That mask has almost the exact same look as the lightweight mask made by schutt. you might want to check that out instead of trying to hunt down the mizuno one.

I wouldn't agree with that.

Unlike the Mizuno. the Schutt has a built-in throat protector:

You gotta be sh!tting me. You can look at those two masks and make that statement?

That's like saying a Ford Focus has almost the exact same look as a Lexus.

On that basis every mask has ALMOST the exact same look.

I have a Schutt mask, and it's nothing like the Mizuno.

The Schutt is terrifically light, but lightly padded. I've taken a couple off the chin that I've felt, so I'm going to switch to WV padding for the frame.

Shouldn't that be, "You gotta be Schutting me?"

Other than the throat protector, they both have almost nothing for ear gaurds and both have an extended bar at the top for the harness, producing a similiar look. The honigs and wilson masks I've used look nothing like it. I know nothing about the quality of either of them, but if this guy liked this mask because of the way it looked (as long as the throat gaurd wasn't a dealbreaker), the schutt is closer than any other mask I've seen. Surely you can agree with that.

I still don't. (not a big deal though)

And don't call me Surely.
