Default Fighting Head Gear

Hi Guys,
wanting to get a new headguard, going for a nose protector this time as I have lots of important stuff on over the xmas period and couldnt possibly risk a crooked beak.
Ive heard some mixed reviews re: facebar gear
any ways after guttingly missing out on the nylon full face reyes on ebay. I have come across this

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

if anyone has had the chance to use one of these. Please can you provide me with some feedback. Im based in the uk, im not actually buying from that ebay site, thats just so you guys know what im reffering to.

Many Thanks

Yeah a bit heavy. But the trade off is that it does offer superior protection...so yeah I would get it unless you save a few morr bucks and get the reyes

Thanks for the info buddy. I can get the fighting one for 90.
Maybe the heavy thing may help me move my head quicker without one on / with a competion open face guard

This is the headgear I use.

It's terrific. As has already been said, it takes a little bit to get used to the greater size and weight, but it provides what you are looking for in spades.

My homeboy at my gym copped the same one and stopped using it after 2 sessions cus he felt it was too big and bulky. I have to admit his head was a huge target that was hard to miss.

where do you guys in the states get your equipment from? I mean websites?
its cheaper for me to buy it online and have it shipped than go to the shops or online here. thanks
