Haha, there's no stopping it! Let me fire it up: "Your personal preference is wrong and mine is right!"

If you're looking to be swayed away from switching, you probably shouldn't do it; You don't have to dig too hard on this forum to find horror stories. If go out there with a visor and you have reservations about it, it will have a negative effect on your play.

My advice is to gradually try new things to see what you are comfortable with. When I first switched, I got one of the giant, Dany Heatley-style Oakely Aviator visors. I played with that for a season and wanted a little better airflow, so I switched to an Oakley Pro-Modified Aviator; I think Jagr is sporting that one right now. To me that was the best of both worlds, good protection and a streamlined design. After a year or two, I moved to a Oakely Small Straight, which is the one most NHL guys use (Crosby is probably the most notable). That's still where I'm at and I've had a couple of those.

If you try something you don't like, I think most guys on here would agree that lightly used visors are very easy to sell.
