Default Headguard Help

In need of a new head-guard for sparring r, not to sure whether to get a full face or an open face head-guard. I know the full face head-guards have less vision ad the open have have less protection just not sure wat to go for! Tried a full face on at my gym and couldn't see anywhere near as good as a open face head guard.

I have been looking at the Top Ten head-guards made of bay-flex, either looking to get an open face one or one with cheek protectors but am worried that the cheek protectors will obstruct my vision.

i have no way of trying these on as im ordering online so any help with my will be appreciated

Cheek protectors shouldn't obstruct your visions much as full face. I doubt you'll be looking down when boxing. But that being said I feel most comfortable I n open face , even though it means I feel impact of punches more. It kinda keeps me in my toes

I think the top tens are great if they can fit your head . People usually love it or hate it. Head down the store in Es*** to try for yourself. Might as well since you're investing and might be stuck with ur choice for a long time
