Hey Tobin, keep your mouth closed when using that mask.

Might want to wear a bandanna or something to keep the shell from cutting your face if it makes it in.

Would not use it. What I would use ( actualy I do Use) is a JT X-Fire ( aka crossfire) mask. Same lense, same general styling, same vintage ( well a little newer) but with todays safety requirements and guess what They still make them. Dont use that old whippersnapper on the feild, its just not safe. remember your mask is THE most important peice of equipment you have on the feild.

/agree with Al on this one .. The plastic frame may or may not retain the lense in case of impact... I miss my whipper too but i wont bet my face on an old mask

Regards

*what follows as my oppinion and may or may not be safe and/or based on reality*
I think the frame will do okay so it should be safe for his eyes as long as he gets a new lense. It looks to be the exact same frame as on my x-fire. I also have a friend that has been wearing a set of these since he started playing. If you overlook the lack of cheek or adequate mouth protection, the real problem with these is the lack of EAR protection. I know a guy who was shot in the ear (with an under-velocity PGP) while wearing just a knit ski-mask and a set of JT goggles he had removed from his mask. The pitch of his scream convinced me that ear protection is not optional. So, I would recomend getting the period ear armour upgrade if these will see action.

i agree with Wild. as long as you get a new lense and protect your ears, you'll be fine.

that mask would be great for stock class games.

Fortunatly, I have the ear pieces for this one. I liked how small and basic it is. Of course this will be good motivation to keep my mouth shut during a game............. Wonder if a cig will fit thru there? or...LOL

Sell that AGG strap for 50-60 bucks and buy a whole new mask.
