This is why you don't leave your kit unattended
« on: June 11, 2018, 08:18:38 AM »

Had a game at home on Thursday night and as we were also playing at home in the league on Saturday, I decided to leave my kit in the change rooms to save me lugging it back to the car.

Came into pad up for a net before the game on Saturday and found this:





Can't even think what has happened to it. The helmet was still in my bag and the grille is undamaged. Looks like someone's either sat on it or trodden directly on it. Needless to say, no one has any knowledge of it and I'm down a helmet.

And then I got run out for 6. And we lost.

So a pretty rubbishy weekend all round!

(Oh, and this comes two weeks after my kit was taken from my car and left out in the rain by a thief who stole the match fees from my bag. Brilliant.)

Out of the helmet brand s which has the biggest gap for vision .

It's something I didn't consider when I bought . I'm.getting used to masuri helmet but feel the vison gap is not the greatest in the MK2

all will be between 40-50mm i guess given the fact it needs to keep out a ball at 64mph from 60cm away during testing.

Mine is typically 45mm across the range.
