I'm running mask check at the All Cals in San Luis Obispo right now. I was brought a JL mask...one of the older ones with the triangular cheek plates. One of the plates is present with all three rivets....the other one is totally gone, but the glue appears to be holding the material down sufficiently. Because the plate itself is missing, there's no empty rivel hole to catch a blade....there are small holes in the fabric for the rivets, but I don't think they'll catch a blade (Plus, it's on the off side) Should I pass this one, or hold it and tell the fencer to get a replacement? I'm holding it right now. And BTW....if I ever needed a reason to push my atatus as a certified armorer....it was today. They were not going to run a mask check...IN CALIFORNIA?? Not at an even I'M working....I insisted, ran the check myself....and then found an Absolute mask with a broken tongue....they would've been allowed to slide if I hadn't pushed for the check. It's fixable....but it should've never happened at all.
