Default Pitching masks

I currently wear a ripit defense mask when pitching. I'm moving up to a tourney team and am thinking about upgrading to a helmet/mask. I've been looking at both worth and cascade lacrosse helmets. I will be pitching in e ball. I imagine that there will be a lot more middle shots than what I'm used to in league. Any advise is appreciated. I doubt this is a unique thread, but in my search in the newbie threads I came up with nothing. Sorry if I am wasting your time.

I know of only 1 guy locally who wears a full helmet when he pitches. When he ordered it last fall(?), I think he said he was getting a Worth. It looks similar to the Worth lacrosse helmet, but I don't know if that's what he got.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

Worth Pitching
Lacrosse Helmet
Goalie Mask
I have had all three and all are great.
I also have the poor mans version of the Rip-It. That works fine. I have taken some shots and am still around to talk about it
EBAY or PLay it again sports is your friend

I really like the worth that looks like a hockey goalie style catcher mask. I’d get something that covers my entire head.

I actually won a worth mask/helmet in a raffle yesterday so the decision was made easy.

I don't tend to turn my head either but I'm going to be playing up from my normal e-comp league competition. I'd rather feel a little safer. Thanks guys

Seriously? Your considering buying one and then you win one! Usually that goes in reverse order. Congrats and smart to do. It'll actually make you a better pitcher you watch.
