Best cages for vision.

I have posted before about my problem with seeing out of the cage, then I went to a full face Itech and it kept giving me other issues. I have been in a league and I was playing for a while without anything, but I finally decided to put my cage back on.

What cage do you guys recommend for good vision that you are playing with? I know a lot of people use that Tru Vision and some cages have thinner bars. I want to make sure I buy the correct one this time.

Thank you.

just go with what feels the most comfortable to you as there's really no right or wrong choice.

I went from a cheep Itech to a easton s17 cage and There are little things I like about the s17 but all in all no big life changing things to it.

The one thing I like most about the s17 cage is that it's not black. The sliver, gray mat finnish helps in seeing the puck.

That is my whole experience with the two different cages I have used in the last 4 years.

I would think something not black would be best for vision. Can't say for sure though - I have been using a 1/2 visor since high school (20+ years), and could never wear a cage again. Mind you, I do have a scar near each eye to show how important a cage can be - one cost me 7 stitches on my eyelid. These were from a puck with a visor on.

I thought I heard that silver coloured cages provide the best vision.

the bauer 9500 basically just disapears once you start playing.

I have my inside painted white. Do you think silver would be better?

will you get chirped for a silver cage.



also, is there a difference in safety between choosing a helmet+cage combo (a cage that comes with the helmet), or a helmet and a separate cage.

No, they're fairly common.

the cage/helmet combos are just generally cheaper than buying a helmet then buying a cage. You will find (mostly) that if itsa a bauer helmet, they are going to have bauer cages, if you buy seperate, you can buy whatever brand helmet (diff companies, diff fit) and whatever brand cage you want
