first time head gear

Postby jake Mon Dec 04, 2006 4:24 pm

hey i'm looking to buy my first helmet, and as i know i'm going to be shelling out over a hundred quid i was wondering if there was a particular model to go for?
i've been told that the chrome grill is an essentual 8) but apart from that im not sure. I play D if that makes any sort of difference!?

cheers guys.

hi jake i think you can look no furter than a CCM helmet or a Cooper ice hockey helmet rrp £70 a lot cheaper and lighter than a CPX. I have seen a lot of defenders in the northern premiership wearing these

Yeah but there are loads of cooper helmets on e-bay currently at prices ranging from £1 to £5. Bargain in my opinion!

I'd recommend a cpx definitely, I've just got one and it's brilliant. They are light, comfy (when worn in) and look darned cool.
It's worth getting one as long as you are going to be playing for a while and your head isn't going to change size dramatically... If you get a cooper for 5-70 pounds then chances are you'll have to buy a cpx anyway in a few weeks / years when it breaks or peer pressure prevails, so why not save the extra and go straight to a cpx?
Just my 2 cents :D

Great thanks! You should come and join us! We've just lost our goalie to teacher training!!

Maybe we should start a thread to sponsor you - to remove the CCM and upgarde you to a CPX!

The special edition pink one!

You can buy a Hot Pink CPX from www.lacrosseunlimited.com

They are not the limited editions but, if you really want pink, that is where to go.
*Look at all these teams and numbers*
