    Cool Fusion S-Tech 9961 Pro Goalie Mask

    I recently upgraded from my Itech 2500 with cats eye to the new 9961 with a pro double bar cat eye from Simmons. I opted to purchase the mask with the new chin sling instead of the traditional chin cup. When I first put the helmet on it felt funny with no chin cup or strap to hold the helmet in place. I played the first game and after about 10 minutes I never even realized the difference. I took 2 shots to the head that game. 1 was a glancing blow off of the right side of my head and the other was a slap shot from the hash marks right to the center of my forehead. Of course I felt the forehead hit, but it was not a bone jarring hit, i think in part to the carbon and kevlar construction & the padding on the inside is firm, but yet soft enough to cushion the impact. After each game I hang the helmet up and it is nice and dry by the next morning when I check it, and the padding inside remains soft. All in all I am completely happy with the mask and I got it at a good price from Simmons.

    Flatwire cage? 961's don't have flat wire cages, the NME7 and NME9's do...

    Itech, so how do you like the 961? The masks look almost identical.

    I've wanted to try this helmet on, but haven't found one around yet. I don't know how I'd feel with the chin sling as opposed to the chin cup... I think it'd be weird =/
    soreknees - how much did you pay for it, if you don't mind me asking?
    Some people just deserve a high five... to the face.
