Has anyone else heard anything about these things being shipped? I just got an email from a friend of mine who was ordering one for me, and I got a UPS tracking number.

It appears that this will be at my house tomorrow.

Is that possible?

I'm kind of surprised.

Either way, I'll let you all know.


EDIT: Well, I read the thread, at it seems as if these have been talked about being shipped already.




EDIT2: Well. Disregard this whole message. Stupid goddam miscommunication getting me all excited...

Wow. Three pages and only one useful post.

I've always felt the mask forum fell short in the contribution department...

Prea, it looks like the rubber on the ear section extends further out than it did before. That's the only difference I notice anyway. Edit: It looks like the profile of the jawline section was made a little larger as well. That could just be the angle of the image though I guess.

Cheers for the pics, pballkm21.

Before the extra top 'prong' on the old ear pieces which held the visors was also getting driven into the foam when people changed the lenses, and making the bad foam seem even worse than it was. We changed the cut line on the goggles so the section that holds the visors is still there, then removed that part from the soft ears.

A quality product is about the details. I found some areas to improve, so I did so.

The new soft ears will fit on the old goggles, but it means you will not be able to use the visor as nicely. (Although you can cut off the back arm of the visor).

We have a bunch of goggles with the old cut, which are perfect other than the ability to use the visors, and we are working out what to do with them. So few people (especially tournament players) use the visors we may just sell them as 'tourney ready'

Think aloud a little more on this special. I'm curious what you mean by that.

The new earpeices make the mask feel a hell of alot more stable...on the pre production models the earpeices would occasionally rise up on your head.....with the new ones that doesnt happen thanks to more rubber and those little securing clip things...very good decision

Those little clip things are because everyone wanted to wear the goggles on their foreheads when not playing. . I made those to lock the rotation of the clips, so that they don't rotate as easy, and even if they do, they jam the clip on solid so there is NO chance of it coming off without removing them. It's another small detail I noticed from watching all of the Dogs in the pits with the goggles on their foreheads.

The special was just me thinking aloud, don't go calling in for it or I'll never post anything on it again (or hunt you down like a dog...). It annoys me when people change what I posted and call in asking for things that don't exist.

It would be a full goggle system, but no brow shield or visor. Probably just one lens, in a bag, not a display case... only available at special tournament events.

I'm too biased to be the person that answers that. They have been using them in X-ball and 7 man so I don't think there are any issues with the acoustics.
