Period of
Product Use:
More than 5 years
More than 5 years
Products Used:
JT WhipperSnapper (the good ol' snapper.... :D)!
Marker Setup: BE Rainmaker, gutted & capped the stock reg, replaced it with a PMI-Pure Energy inline. 1499 board (Select fire.) Derilin bolt, NitroDuck MaxFLO reg/cradle with 68ci/4500psi TuffSkin bottle.
Strengths: The JT Airstream is the 'modern' and 'updated' version of the venerable JT Whippersnapper (circa 1989.) If you're old enough to remember the Snapper, then you're old enough to remember the NSG. In any case, it provides adaquate eye/mouth protection. Conforms to ASTM standards (SO YOU KNOW ITS SAFE ENOUGH!)
Weaknesses: Unfortunately, the thick foam rubber sideguards are too soft to be of any real protective value. The goggles are large enough, but mouth protection is iffy. Definately not for folks who scream when hit.
Conclusion: Buyer beware. Most cases you can buy these gogs for under $10 used, but I would save up and buy a different entry-level gog system. BUT if you want for nothing but nostalgia, go ahead and buy buy buy!
6 out of 10
