Schutt Sports Review

The following is a paid review:

In today’s day and age of new and improved equipment, a company has developed a new item on football helmets that is getting noticed by players and is garnering solid reviews across the gridiron. Both Pro and college players are starting to use the Schutt ION 4D helmet. Why? The helmet has on it is a faceguard that is actually on the helmet shell, not attached to it, as well as the faceguard has shock absorbing “Energy Wedges” that take away the force of impacts to the faceguard during those hard hitting matchups on field across the country.

Players like Brandon Jacobs, Amani Toomer, David Diehl, Shawn O’Hara, have all started to use the helmet, and there are 11 top college programs that are active in wearing the helmet, including Virgina, Syracuse, and Penn State.As compared to older versions of faceguards, this new model is stronger than other faceguards. Plus it lasts longer than other, older versions of current faceguards that are still worn by numerous players today.

Add to that the fact that the helmet uses a new type of cushioning material known as SKYDEX, the padding in the helmet is much better than the old traditional padding. The SKYDEX2 is yet another type of cushioning that the helmet can use that outperforms traditional foam in every aspect of helmet performance. Another positive about the helmet is that the The ION 4D is easy to wear, and once you take it out of the box, it fits right away without having to break the helmet in. The shell of the helmet is designed to be smaller in appearance to make it more appealing.
