My CCM with Protechsport padding and NHL Ti cage is 1150 Grams or 2.5 lbs 

VTX is 1200 grams or 2.65 lbs 

Any chance you have some numbers for a retail CCM cage vs. the Ti? 

I know you had another topic regarding getting a Ti made but came up empty handed.

I don't know about you but I like to wear my masks with foam and a cage, so I'd rather know what the actual weight is going to be on my head.

Mine is my own custom hand-lay that I made myself, that comes in at 2.0 lbs (~900 g). I could get it a bit lower with a titanium cage. My construction is a full Intermediate modulus carbon fiber (T

Most protective foam I've ever used that's also comfortable.  A little on the heavy side, but that's because there's gel in it.  Very similar to Maltese's stuff, in fact the company that makes Shockte

@BadAngle41, I just took these photos today after 2 games. The Shocktec is hard to clean after a while. This was my first time I padded a mask so it's not pretty, I did this almost 2 years ago. I'm getting ready to redo it next week.

Here is the Shocktec, I have it in 3/8" and 1/8" thick, you glue it together to get the thickness desired.IMG_3362.JPG.3ecf0df09be0330bc7d6002d4268e97a.JPGIMG_3363.JPG.a845fafb414ec6875985984beff74449.JPGIMG_3364.JPG.588585239b2dfe0037c7ddbf67c753a5.JPGIMG_3361.JPG.022c38528bb575f352907b6a50a86edd.JPG

Here is the adhesive Tom at Shocktec said to use, it worked well for me.

@HockeyBum thanks for the pics! Looks like you did a great job 2 years back!

Mind throwing up a topic with some shots as you redo it? I don’t recall seeing anything on the subject of removal and install of fresh foam.

This is exactly what I want to try one day, maybe with some Unequal in there too. Thanks for sharing the info! I also want to try other brands of air gel or similar unconventional, dense foams like Arti-lage.

I had the fun of meeting Garret Sparks the other week and we obviously chatted gear. I saw his Wall up close and was shocked at how heavy it was. I chirped that I hope his off season workout routine included neck curls. 

Surprisingly, he didn't take my comment lightly. He got into a discussion about not trusting a light mask. He's basically old school and want's to wear a tank. He feels if it's too light, then something is missing.

Hahahaha 

i know lots of guys in the CHL, ECHL, etc sell their gear because they don’t make much and $800 for a set is a good pick up. Most guys in the minors  selling are also like 25 or under 

I don’t know the specifics of his and if it was embarrassing or where he was at in his career, (ECHL just called up?) but the actual for sale does not surprise me 

I know 2 CHL guys that take selling their gear for top dollar seriously

Is that when you were able to grab some picks of his Optik gear with embroidered (not heat transferred) logos? Noticed the Optik C/A on the floor.

I would not consider either of my Pro's Choice lids to be light by any stretch of the imagination.

I have two Hackvas. Both with full paint jobs and both mediums. One weighs in at 3.40lbs and one at 3.48lbs (Maltese in this one). My Masked Marvel Assassin comes in at 3.92lbs. Weigh difference between it and the Hackva is noticeable.
