keegper Posted November 9, 2022 Share Posted November 9, 2022 Hey all -- As a bit of background, I've been wearing an axis 1.5 for the last year or two of A/B men's league play. I know, not the best, but I've had a couple of collisions and more than a couple of headshots without any noticeable aftereffects. Still, after constantly hearing how dangerous playing with a polycarbonate mask is, I'm looking to upgrade. I've noticed that some of the mid-tier fiberglass models are quite a bit cheaper if they are 5-7 years old and approaching the end of their HECC certification. Does anyone have experience or insight into the reliability of these? The shells and cages should be fine, but I don't know how much the foams degrade while in storage. The only experiment on the topic I could find was with player helmets and seems to suggest that as long as the adhesive connecting the foam to the shell is sound, it's acceptably safe. What do you all think? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
