I actually dont mind cages.
I normally play with a half shield because I like to take my helmet off on the bench and towel off, much easier with a halfie.
a good, boxy cage with nice vision painted white on the inside is fine though.
Of course, I go through phases where I dont play with anything but a mouth piece. Its all how I feel on that given day.
I use both a cage and a half shield. I prefer wearing the half shield but I just don't trust some players in my lower league and at pick-up so I wear the full cage. If you are playing with people who are responsible with their sticks then I see no reason to switch from a half shield. If you are really want to switch I've used the same bauer 3000 cage for the last 6 years..I hear good things about Itech cages as well.
