What is your helmet of choice?
I go through a new helmet practically every season. I've used CCM and Bauer helmets, but the biggest problem I am having is finding one that is wide enough. Apparently my cranium is over-sized.
Anyone else have this problem? If so, which helmet manufacturer would you recommend?
Has anyone used the new Cascade ice hockey helmets?

I have a Bauer 8000 that is like the pro stock model and I too have a fairly large dome. Fits me fine, but I got the largest model they have. I also have a CCM 1052 which at times can be large on my head and move around, but I guess that is the style for those (not moving around in an unsafe way either)

Off the top of my head I believe I use a bauer 5500 with a oakley half shield.

I'm a member of the over-sized cranium club, too. Always have trouble finding hats that fit, and helmets that are big enough, especially in the width - most of them seem to just go longer in the larger sizes. Then I picked up a Rbk 8k. The dial adjustment is specifically for the width, and it works great. My size L can go way longer and wider than I'd ever need. I recommend it highly for the melon-heads out there.

CCM 492 with a full cage.
I have a huge head as well. The Large used to fit me great, but then I took a real bad hit to the front of the cage, and now it's a little tight. Kind of says something about the amount of protection you get, I guess.

I think Ive got a Bauer 1000 now. whatever the helmet lindros wore his entire career is.
Before that, CCM 652.
I'd like to get another of those. timeless classic.
