aircanuck Posted May 5, 2018 Share Posted May 5, 2018 Hello All, first time poster. Long story short, former AAA/Jr goalie 21 years ago, now getting back into playing at age 38 and loving it once again. I've replaced pretty much every piece of my old equipment with two exceptions: Bauer 4000 skates and my Armadilla goalie masks (I have two). Recently I had an 19 year old university player rip one into my temple, which didn't phase me a bit, thanks to Don Straus' design, but it sure got me thinking. Here I am wearing a helmet that was built for me in 1994, should I be concerned? The shell is pretty much perfect with the exception of cosmetic dings/paint chips, the interior foam still has good "squish" and does not shed. Any thoughts on what else I should be looking for or be concerned about? They were the safest, most well-built masks in my day, but I do not know how time affects things. I certainly appreciate any feedback that you may have. Here's a pic of the mask, the cage is not dented, the paint chips just give it that perspective in this picture. Thanks for the feedback! I'm looking forward to being a member on these forums. Neil Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
