100% agree. I just played my first full game Tuesday with a half-shield visor. The difference is absolutely huge between a cage and the visor. The light weight feel, the clear vision, and lack of a chin cup...

I did however get high sticked to the visor, right infront of my eye. So at least I know it works as advertised... haha

I looked at a combo-cage, and it just didn't make sense. If you don't like the bars but want full protection, get a fishbowl.
