Thanks for the input all.
Keep the suggestions coming.
Taken by our own Nichole G.
RBK8K. Best helmet. Ever.
CCM with a cage. Can't remember the model number though.
Itech 1000....also, no cage and yes I have taken a stick to the face. Had a large amount of stiches on face and inside of mouth. Thank GOD for my mouthpiece. I AlWAYS wear my mouthpiece. I also know the consequences of not wearing a shield or cage. So far I have been lucky, i am sure but that is the way i like it.
when i got it, i didn't have much of a choice. but if i were to get a new one now, i would probably get the 6k. fits about the same w/o the useless dial for my head and is cheaper too.
