New lid tested out.
« on: January 14, 2016, 10:20:23 AM »

I managed to snaffle a New Aditek lid from @Ayrtek as part of the Christmas voucher deal, an absolute steal if I don't say so.

Anyhow I've worn it for two net sessions and am growing pretty fond of it. The vision it offers is superb, at least equal to my old titanium Masuri. It's really light, I barely feel it on my head. The protection is great too. I nailed an attempted dilscoop straight into the gap between the visor and the grill and didn't feel a thing! Granted the bowling can't be described as anything more than medium pace but inspecting the impact point when I got out of the net I can't help but feel it could have snuck through the Masuri.

Overall, I'm a convert now I think!

Yeah it was pretty funny. I tried it the ball before and got it away. Next ball was a bit fuller and straighter and I nailed it, straight into my face!

I'll jump on this thread and confirm that I wore my (very reasonably priced) PremierTek last week at nets and it was superb, much lighter than my old dodgy Puma helmet and good vision.  Some of the guys in the club also commented (generally positive  ;)) so it was nice that I got noticed.

The main reason I got this helmet was because I absolutely have to place my grille as far back and as low as possible, and I know the impending new helmet from Ayrtek (and others) will be a fixed grille, which is just so annoying, so once again I am delighted to have got one of these run-out specials.

As an aside, I notice that the back of the grille has enough holes for a placement even further back than the hole at the front of the grille allows.  I might consider extending the length of the front hole to allow this, assuming it is possible and not a major exercise on a Titanium grille??

@Stratts Historically those grille holes were present so that the grills could be fitted to other branded helmets when we 1st started out back in 2009. Not all holes are usable on our helmet with them as you have noted.

Thanks for the positive feedback though, we still have some helmets left at clearance price if people are still looking for one in time for winter nets.

Tom, are your titanium grills compatible with a Masuri shell? Cheers!

@dannyhall04 hi Danny, I believe a few forum members use our Tu grille with a Masuri shell yes.

@Buzz am I right in thinking this is the combo u use/were using?

Sorry only just seen this.
I have used a masuri lid with the ayrtek grill successfully.
Currently using a gm lid with masuri ti grille.
I expect the ayrtek grille will also fit the GM lid, but haven't tested yet.

Thanks mate 👍

Managed to dig out an old Masuri lid today that we out through testing so I'll try one of our Ti grilles on it and see how it fits.

Results shortly....

This is our Titanium grille on a older style Masuri lid, (obv new Masuri are fixed grille anyway)

Using these settings gives a 40mm gap which is prob the best option to reduce ball/peak penetration risk given the peak flex on these models.

How much would one of those old grills be in titanium as I've got an old style Masuri?
