Most guys buy equipment because it fits good, but given the choice between two equally fitting pieces of equipment why not go with the one you like more. If that's a tinted visor, so be it. I've noticed a lot of guys won't buy the X100 bauer visor with the chrome but most of the world juniors that wear a visor do wear it. If the logic is those guys are extremely talented then no one should be using a totalone stick or skates or any high priced equipment.

Sorry for the rant, just a huge pet peeve of mine. To the OP, if it helps with the post-concussion symptoms, by all means you should wear it. I've worn one before and occasionally switch from tinted to clear and I don't notice a big difference
It's not only about gear, also about how they play, virtually every guy I've seen play with yellow laces, tinted/mirrored visor (there's actually a real bender in my league who's gear is exactly like ovi's, before he switched to bauer ) are poor players who sit/hover @ the oppositions blueline looking for the breakaway pass. If someone's trying to stand out from the team & look like an egocentric star, it says a lot about their personality.
