RichMan Posted February 20, 2020 Share Posted February 20, 2020 The title speaks for itself. I'm not going to turn this into a poll as the majority of us would vote based purely on comfort. I'm looking for intellectual debates, data if you want to nerd out, something that shows why one would factor over the other. This of course would exclude any goalie still playing in the minors. Keep it clean people, we're all entitled to our personal experience and opinions. Thanks I myself have used both over the decades. I'm currently using a sling. I switched because I had a hard time getting the cup to sit right on my chin, and getting the mask on and off is easier with the sling. I'm not sure if either would protect me from lip or dental injury. I do feel that in the cup my bottom lip and chiklets did feel more exposed and at risk, then again, the sling lacks stability and gives the mask more wobble action in quick head movements and impact. I've gotten pucks to the chin with no damage so far, with both options. Who knows what could happen at any given game. For the record, I've worn a Simmons VV, a Reidic, a Hackva and back into a Reidic the past decade. I'm leaning towards the Sportsmask 8X for next season. That's my 2 cents.
