Switching to half visor
 
Right now, I have a full shield (Itech) on my Easton Stealth S9. I just ordered an Oakley Pro Aviator visor to put on instead of the full shield.

Did anybody have real problems mounting the visor onto their helmet?

Oh, and I went to the dentist yesterday to get fitted for a legit mouthguard... It was like $225... :facepalm:

It took me a little putting on a visor for the first time, just make sure you are using the right length spacers for the screws should tell ya in the instructions which for your type of helmet. Also....on the mouthguard thing gees man, thats a lottttttttttt. Ive heard they are expensive but man I wonder how much more protection they provide for that kind of price. Any chance that was just the total for the entire appointment and mouthguard? Or just mouthguard by itself

It was just for the mouthguard itself... I know, $225 for a mouthguard is insane.

i have an 8k helmet with an itech straight cut visor and it was a real ***** getting it on. i had to stretch the visor to fit the mounting holes. i thought i was going to crack the visor. once i got it on with the spacers it just took some readjusting, nice combo though

So there's a very little chance of it fitting on easily?

I just want to make sure so I don't return it if I can't get it mounted right away.

Oh, and do the spacers come with the visor?

it might fit on easy for your helmet, but for me it too a lot of careful bending to fit it. and yea the spacers should come with the visor.

The 8k is a pretty wide helmet, it's probably going to be easier on an easton.

As someone who just had 7 teeth pulled, 4 wisdoms and three that were broken with a puck, 225 isn't bad when compared to the 1600 bucks to take them all out and the 3,000 for the 3 implants.

Some helmets work better with some visors. I have a vector 10 and it was a major pain with the Itech aviator but the Oakley straight cut was super simple.

no offense, but wow, that was stupid.

shockdoctor dna mouthguard for 20 bucks does the same thing. if you got money to throw around like that you should have gotten an s17 helmet.

You didnt pay 1600 because of hockey though so its kinda irrelevant. Most of that came from the wisdoms. You should only payed about 70-100 $ a tooth . Mouthguard wont always protect your teeth from getting knocked out. Everyone i play with only wears them for concussions really. I never got into mouth guards personally, sounded pretty dumb when i was trying to talk shizz.

I paid 600ish to replace 2 teeth then got the 3rd for free 2 months later, but i can take mine out so they dont get broke again. Didnt really even hurt that bad for a day or two and even then it wasnt really any worse then having teeth pulled once the nova wears off. On the plus side of having no teeth is no one wants to line up against you :naughty:

Anyway back to the op:

LOL! thats crazy! :laugh:
