As I was making my regular perusal through Ebay looking at lacrosse equipment, I stumbled upon something incredibly different. The price was the first thing that caught me off guard being that this item was not up for auction, but the price set to buy it now for $419.99. I clicked on the link to discover the shiniest piece of headwear I have ever laid my eyes upon.
Totally chromed orange helmet, complete with orange facemask, blue chin, and blue vents. At first, I was slightly taken aback by the photo that I saw. However, the more that I look at it, the more that I enjoy it. I think it is one of the best looking helmets that I have ever seen. The only unfortunate thing is that, in my opinion, you better be the best player out on whatever field you are playing on when you are wearing this helmet.
Nonetheless, I followed a link at the bottom of the posting that took me to Chromelax.com. Basically, the service is that the customer sends Chromelax their gear (stick heads, shafts, helmets, goalie throat protector) and they will apply their signature coating to it in order to chrome your gear. They offer black, gold, green, orange, blue, orange, pink, purple, red, and silver as the colors that they can apply.
They can also do up to 4 color fades and also can throw text on your lacrosse head as well. The finished product looks absolutely great, but the only drawback is that the cost to Chrome a head is $50-60. The company is in PA and boasts a 1-2 week turnaround on the orders. What do you think? Are you already sending your gear to them or still not sold on chrome? Are you purchasing a helmet for $419.99??
