My wife and I want to thank you for the superb quality of your Defense Pro Mask. Our daughter transitioned to 14U Travel ball and we decided to buy her a new mask. She chose your product and we couldn't be happier that she did. Last week she was pitching in a tournament and the batter returned a laser line drive that she did not have time to react to. The ball hit her in the mask knocking her backwards off her feet and causing the ball to ricochet to the second baseman who made the out. Our daughter immediately got to her feet with a smile on her face, dusted herself off and proceeded to continue pitching. When she came off the field she was more angry that her mask was marked up instead of not catching the ball. There is no doubt in our minds that if she had not been wearing your product that we would be in for multiple surgeries and broken bones in her face and eye.
My daughter is a 10U pitcher who came in on relief a few weeks ago in a travel tournament and on the first pitch took a rocket line drive to the facemask before she even finished her pitching motion. It knocked the mask off her face and knocked her down. We had Visions of bloody teeth, a broken nose and worse. However, the worse thing that happened was a scratch on the chin from when the mask flew off. The mask is severely dented and bent so we will have to get a new one but it certainly did it's job and protected her from major face and/or teeth damage. Would surely recommend this product to anyone.
My daughter has worn a Rip-It mask since she started playing softball. Last summer, she was on the mound pitching in a 10U all-star game. Unusual league rules that don't allow for walks mean the opposing coach comes in and slow pitches to the batter for the remaining strike count. The batter hit a screaming line drive right back at the mound from 33 feet away, Because my daughter had not actually pitched the ball, she was standing still and unable to react in time. The ball hit with a sickening thud directly above her left eye. It hit with enough force that the mask padding across her forehead totally compressed and the ball STILL had enough velocity to ricochet off her head and into the outfield. It was the worst thing I have ever had to witness as a sports parent or a coach. To be safe, we took her to the E.R. She had a nasty goose egg, a small scratch, and a heckuva story, but that was it. No concussion, no fracture. That Rip-It mask saved her from a catastrophic head injury. She went on to pitch for her her team in the state all-star tournament.
My daughter is a Pitcher on a 10U team called Yosemite Blaze. She was pulled up to pitch in a 12U tournament last weekend in Central CA. We purchased a Rip-It face mask for her last year and hands down this is the best purchase I have ever made.
This past Sunday, our team had two outs against the opponent in a semi-final bracket of the tournament we were in when my daughter who pitches about 48 mph as an 11 year old, delivered a pitch that got drove right up the middle and straight into her facemask! The impact was hard enough to actually take her mask off. As this all played out, my daughter took the hit and seeing the ball drop a few feet away from her after impact, ran to the ball and threw the batter out at 1st base for the 3rd out.
As a parent, my heart sank as I saw the scenario lay out. I was immediately relieved to see she did not miss a step throwing the runner out - which was a sign to me she was OK. She has some bruising under her chin and on the bridge of her nose from the mask pulling up and catching her but had that ball hit her square in the face without the mask, we would have been a whole lot worse off.
I just wanted to tell you I am a fan and have pushed your product to every player I come across. Had it not been for the mask, we would have been in the ER. I am so thankful!
The umpire called my husband and I over and confirmed that was the best investment we could have made. Thank you!
I've used the RIP-IT fielders mask for 6 years now, and the visibility, price point and comfort make it the best fielder's mask in the market.
I like the padding that you can take out because they get hot and sweaty so you can wash them. I also like that it's not plastic so I feel more secure on the field.
