Well I'm using a Bauer/Cooper 3000 with a Itech HLC half shield. The padding in the helmet are getting hard and yellowed and a couple pieces have fallen out. I hot glued them once and it all fell back out after a couple games. Any suggestions on what to do or should I get a new helmet(tempted to since I got tax returns ) Don't want to spend a ton of money since I'm in college and playing in a semi-casual league. Saw a good deal on a Bauer 5000, but anyone had experience with trying to fit a Itech HLC shield on it? It's the one with the vents on top. I heard Jofa was good for ventilation, cept I couldn't find one...kinda phased out like Itech ones are.
