    96' DP general consensus

    While in Singapore I was able to find 2 DP 96's, what is the general consensus among TDH members about this particular helmet. At only $35-40 I think that it is something that I should not turn down. Thoughts, opinions, comments?

    It's the 2nd best regular DP. A decent helmet.

    Yeah, I've got a 96 DP, and it cost me $75, so I'd say you got a deal. It's decent, and it's WAY better than a 97 DP.

    I have a 96 DP that I converted into a jango and I LOVE it! I think it has great flare and an overall good shape. Now if it were only a MSH!

    Yeah, I agree...the flare is better than the 95 and 97 versions, and it looks even better if you widen the helmet to add some additional flare.

    And true, it is a bit smaller, but so am I, and the size is just right for us little hunters.

    My current bucket is a 96 as well. Although I'm not totally satisfied with it, it is a pretty decent bucket! For $35, I would probably consider that a pretty nice deal. It all depends on what you want.

    You really can't beat that price. I've got a '96 myself and have used it for several years now. I really like the overall shape but I'm getting more and more disappointed with the size. I paid $60 for mine about 5 years ago at a Halloween shop in the mall so you're really getting a good deal.

    Buy both, convert both and sell one on Ebay and make up your money back and more.
