I know!! When I reviewed the Masuri E LINE Steel Helmet I explained my reasoning behind not adding the StemGuard, but subsequently I asked around and the consensus was to get one, if I didn’t find it too uncomfortable.
Having decided to get one I wanted a yellow one, but after extensive research I found out that they stopped making them in any colour other than black in 2019 although many sites INCUDING Masuri still advertise them in yellow which is a tad frustrating – well it was to me!
Kudos again to Elite Lids for both price and service (delivery time).
The Sten Guard fitting instructions are clear, but read carefully. Mine came with the clips inserted so didn’t need to remove any foam, but they had put them in the wrong way round. No big issue but checking upfront will save you some head scratching!
I was not sure what to expect really but they are light, they fit well, but they seem a little more flimsy than I was expecting. This is not an issue as they patently do the job, but I wasn’t really expecting so much movement.
Comfort wise no issues for me, but as I have said several times, I have a pretty upright stance so there is no rubbing on the neck, in fact I can’t feel it at all.
Of course you have no choice: if you have a Masuri helmet you will have to have a Masuri Stem Guard and they only do one – did I mention they no longer do it in yellow? – so factor that into your helmet decision.
Manufactures Product Description
The StemGuard attaches to existing Masuri VS or OS2 helmets with moulded clips and has been designed to give batsman free movement while playing.
This new innovation by Masuri combines an impact modified TPU honeycomb with military grade crush foam in order to maximise impact absorption, giving players confidence when batting.
It comes with interchangeable centre straps, so that the size of the guard can be adjusted accordingly ensuring a comfortable fit.
