Here's What People Are Saying

I ordered one of BHSC previous model shields online from a major hockey store for my son. It was the last BHS in stock. It arrived with a broken visor. While I submitted my claim to that hockey store I contacted BHSC to see if they had any replacement visors as I really wanted one for my son as I'd heard good things. I was fully prepared to buy the replacement visor as it wasn't BHSC fault the visor was broken as it was the store or shipping company's fault. Well, Bill called back directly and through that call and a series of texts he confirmed the condition of the shield, got my son's face/head measurements, and sent me a new youth model shield for free! He didn't even ask for the one I purchased so I was still able to return it! I couldn't have asked for better customer service and my son loves his shield! Thank you Bill and BHSC!

I called one Saturday or Sunday morning around 8:45A Eastern Time, fully expecting to get an answering machine listing their hours of operation... I was floored when the owner himself answered. I got my question answered and I placed an order within the hour! Great mask that has never fogged up! Even better customer service!

Thanks Bill for the new Zero Plus Junior mask! My son absolutely loves it. He has always worn the AVH-2 mask but since trying this one he will never go back. The visor is much more crisp and he zero issues with any type of fogging. He likes the chrome cage as it tends to blend in with the ice. He has even said that it feels like he is just wearing a visor and not a full shield. The shield fits his CCM helmet without any issues. Awesome product that I would highly recommend!!

I have always enjoyed the a bubble but the fog would hinder my play. Once I received this mask I immediately fell in love with it, considering it has no fog and unlimited vision on the ice.

I have bought 2 masks and a replacement shield from this company over the years. Not only do I find their products to be outstanding but the customer service is top notch. I previously had the older senior mask with the clear plastic cage. I really liked it but it finally failed after a good hard punch to the head in mens league. Since it was discontinued I purchased the Zero 1. At first i felt that the shield part was too small and I was looking down through the cage part a lot. But after playing with it for a while I really like it. The design also seems to be teaching me to keep my head up more.

I gave this a try after struggling with the full cage but not wanting to go back to just a half shield. It is the perfect compromise that gives you full face protection and great visibility. I have had absolutely no fogging issues like I did with the half shield at times. I would recommend it to anyone looking for maximum protection and good visibility!

To start...I don't play ice hockey...and I don't live in a cold climate. I play roller hockey (rink hockey) in North Queensland, Australia...I'm a goalkeeper. Our goalies play differently to ice hockey in that we are lower, this means our helmets, and visors, do get hit by the ball. I have the Elite faceshield...fantastic! With the shape of the shield the ball sort of skims off, minor scratches just polish off with a cloth, doesn't fog, and combined with good helmet can take a hit! I love it, and recommend it to other roller hockey keepers using other clear face shields...this product is far superior!

I would like to leave a massive shout out to Avision Ahead for developing the best mask/visor ever ! My son (13 now) has been playing with this visor for nearly 3 years and it NEVER FOGS UP like other masks he's tried ..they are scratch resistant and have an absolute superb clearness to them. He will probably never wear anything else since he maximized his performance on the ice by wearing Avision! It is a massive difference wearing THIS visor vs the "other brands" ! No fog sprays or cloths during the games..no scratches altering the clearness and air flow is optimal ! He is one happy customer for nearly 3 years and is about to spill his "secret" on why he's been playing so well! � If you see the game better it's easier to score!!!

The best shield you can buy. This shield does not fog or scratch. I have owned the Avision for three years with no scratches in adult league. Next, I will be buying a junior shield for my nine year old.Edward, Colorado Springs.

The first shield I've owned that does not fog! I use the 20/20 half shield and could not be more satisfied with the product. I've generally spent almost twice as much for an inferior product. I'm thankful to have found Avision Ahead!

The Pro X half visor is a very good value for the clarity, quality, and protection it offers. Each time I hit the ice I'm confident knowing that it will keep me safe; it doesn't hurt that it looks great as well.

React Faster. Make Better Decisions on the Ice.

IMG_1396

Our shields offer visual clarity for your brain to react faster and allow you better decision making at the speed of hockey.

Sports performance depends largely on your ability to see and react quickly to objects such as a hockey puck being passed to you and your reaction time to respond one or two moves ahead.

How fast you see the game around you from player to objects when your eyes are fully masked changes how the information to the brain is processed and by all tests a player wearing a mask covering their eyes slows the brain and decision making.  Having total visual clarity at speeds of hockey is paramount to playing your best.  This visual input stimulates your brain to direct an appropriate physical response, such as picking at spot on net to shoot the puck or access all the players in the contest and decide what you will do with the puck next.   A simple test is looking though a full cage and then slowly raise it up till you see clearly.  Your brain will immediately change and your vision instantly improves your decision making without bars covering your eyes.    You are buying a cage with a lens so your vision will be at optimum performance and your decision making superior.
