2 questions!!
« on: August 05, 2013, 09:25:23 PM »

Hey guys number one! I was smashed on the head fielding at silly and thank god I had my lid on! There's no visual damage even though I now have concussion, do I need a new one?

Secondly it got me wondering how bad would you feel as a batsmen putting someone in hospital hitting them in that fielding position!?

Personally I still feel its my fault for fielding there so the batsmen should still play his shots!

I would suggest you have a good look around it to see if you can spot any visible damage. For your own peace of mind I would change it. Secondly I would have a word with the bowler and ask him to bowl straighter >:(

Sounds like a valid reason to buy a new lid to me, get yourself an ayrtek!  :D

And I put one of my team mates in hospital with a straight drive once. We were having a net when we still had the cage and I tried to loft it over his head, I absolutely nailed it straight back at him, and it went through his hands straight onto his forehead. 17 stitches later he didn't play again and was left with a scar, I still feel terrible about it to this day!

At least you were smart enough to we're a lid! Speak to the skipper about pitting someone else there next time!!

All manufacturers recommend replacing after being hit on the lid as per BSI instructions, a blow could have weakened the overall structural strength even if it looks visually intact. (Hairline fractures etc).

But tbh helmets aren't cheap! At around 50 each a lot of people don't bother replacing it.

I'd recommend just buying the helmet shell, and keeping the grille (providing you were hit elsewhere).

id stick with masuri best and only helmet I would use
Can't be the best when an ayrtek is 300% safer  ;)
