The RBK 7K is a good mask but the buckles in the back will start to pop right off during games when you receive impact on the head, just a heads up for ya.
Also, in regards to the mask, I don't mean to be rude but, Dear OP
DO NOT BUY THE NME 5!!!!
With goalie masks, the number 1 factor is fit, so find the helmet that fits you best, if nothing fits you at the store (like me, with a giant head) you might have to go the custom route. The number 2 factor is the material of the mask. Do NOT buy anything that is only made out of plastic. You want a mask with at least some sort of Fiberglass or Kevlar/Aramid in it. The lowest end Bauer mask you should be wearing is an NME7. If you buy a NME 5 you'd be looking at concussions for sure unless you are playing with 11 year olds.
Really? I was looking into the new nme 5 NOT the 3, the fit on me is very good and the five is not plastic like the 3. need to find out more about this.
