Cheers Leeroy glad to see its getting some attention now and it was the right decision to change the shell shape so that people notice it as well as the techology inside of it.

Sreesanth has one as well now so if he ever gets into bat you may see him wearing his one!!  :o

Sadly, now watching the highlights. Sreesanth wearing a Masuri. You need to pay him more obviously!

maybe but then anything is an improvement if hes not getting paid at all!

The product sells itself to the Pro's as its their livelyhood at stake if they take one in the helmet. In my view it's in their interest to wear the most protective helmet on the market to ensure they are at the safest level available.

Yes it has a 14mm thick shell but they indented on the ones that were put through, i should stress the obviously still passed though but showed the after effects of being dropped onto a metal anvil and ended up with cavities underneath the cloth.

Perhaps the thick shell is why the players get so hot underneath them as it traps the heat in?! No idea how you would check the way of recording that to prove it though.

Havent seen Sreesanth wearing his yet have you?

As far as Im aware we arent paying them anything as its beneficial for them to wear a safer helmet for protecting their livelyhood.

that is smashing! I thought they were sponsored by you (as in you paid them to use your gear). Im sure more pros will follow - maybe Shreesanth decided to use it after seeing Sangakarra wear one

Yeah we supply them but don't formally sponsor them as we agreed as a copmany not to actively pay players to wear the helmet as its a sense of false endorsement from our view if they are forced to wear it in order to bank a cheque.

Those wearing them have asked for them as they have seen the benefits comparred to what they previously wore in terms of protection and weight etc.

Do you not think many pro's will take the gamble and wear masuri's and albions etc if they are paid to?? as money seems to rule all these days!?!

Hope they dont though and maybe more sensible players will put on an ayrtek for their own good!
