    What cage should I get 9900 cage or the 11K . i slightly prefer vision in 9900 and its lighter i like both chin straps but I think the 9900 could absorb lots of sweat and bacteria and where down what do you think?

    Bauer 9900 is a fantastic cage. Best one I have owned, and I have owned the Jofa 480 cage which is often mentioned as one of the best cages as well.

    It does seem a little shorter than other cages I have owned, but not enough to be dangerous.

    9900 here as well and I really like it. light, comfortable chin cup, and good vision. I do agree with it being a bit on the short side. The chin cup has to be all the way at the bottom for it to fit me.

    I put it on a Bauer 5100 helmet I believe it is. Best helmet/cage combo I've ever had.

    Could someone explain what "adding hang" is for the benefit of the over-30 and non-hockey-lifer crowd?

    Thanks!

    You look extremely awesome and get a +5 to your dangle abilities.

    How does one "add hang" to a cage? I switched helmets and the chin cup is too high now. Don't want to buy a new one and could live with it but if there's a way to drop it a bit with some hardware that would be nice.

    Personally, I have an Oakley cage/visor facemask that is tremendous for quality vision. If good vision is your main focus, try a half visor/half cage facemask. After the first couple of skates you'll adjust and won't look back!
