In preparation for the up coming Australian Summer, i made some further enquires from Australian distributors. Apparently, there were particularly bad batches through 2015&16 with the guard mount cracking issue, pretty well isolated to Australia and the UK.

I've been assured with complete 100% confidence that this has been rectified with the 2017 updates though...

Hmmmm......seems at odds with what Jake said re seeing 2017 model only back in May with the same grille mount cracking issues .

The distributors who are trying to sell them?

They'll hardy tell you "they're awful, you'd be better off buying a Masuri" will they...

This particular distributor would and has in the past.

Quick update on this one.
We ended doing a custom order (embroidered club logo) and got six guys to order lids. 2x Pro Guard Titanium, 2x Masterclass Air Steel, 1x Pro Guard Steel and 1x Armour (so a good sample across the Shrey Range). Not one with the cracking issue and overall build quality is pretty good.

Only issue for me is the new back of head sizing system. It's $hit which i've already changed, but otherwise quality is equal or slightly better to my old Masuri Original Test.

So your new lids are on par with an out-dated helmet which has been replaced by a new version, due to the old version not being of good enough quality...

Quite a few of my club mates have bought Shrey lids - having looked at them myself they all had the same mount cracking/botch job repairs as seen earlier in the thread. Really don't see the point in buying a Shrey when you can just get a Masuri OS2 for roughly the same price if that's the lid you really want

to be fair, my club offers the adult vision series for 75 embroided.
Cracking price.
Always gone with shrey but the stitching quality on the last one I have had is shocking.

Exactly mate, if the stitching quality (something that is in plain view) is that poor then imagine what the rest of the build quality is like (the actual important bit!).

Always trust in Masuri, I've been hit on the head at a decent pace (80 mph+) and the Masuri VS Elite stood up to the test. Masuri is an obvious choice for me

For me, the 2.0 is an incredible helmet! Unbelievable comfort, the changes theyve made are superb too

If you look at the pictures http://www.prodirectcricket.com/products/Shrey-Master-Class-Air-20-Titanium-Cricket-Helmet-Black-Batting-Equipment-H011BLACK-169278.aspx youll see there is not adjustable strap likenthere was on the older models and Masuris from years ago. Now padding(various sizes) which make it a great fit

I read through this whole thread yesterday, seeing as I use a Shrey Masterclass Air Titanium.

I was concerned as my helmet was bought at the end of the 2016 season. Mine showed no signs of cracking, and I've been very pleased with the build quality. The only gripe I have is that the finishing on the grill isn't as smart as on my old Masuri or the Vision Elite I had for a season.

For future though I think I will go back to a Masuri, but I didn't get on with the weight of the one I had. Im tempted, once I have money,to invest in a masuri before hopefully going overseas this winter.
