I've found a Don Post '96/97 Boba bucket on Ebay and wondered if DP's are any good? I have a Rubies Jango but need more affordable helmets for a fan film I'm working on (see: http://forums.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=6202 for further details).

Well is it a 96 or 97, because the difference in the two is great. IN 97 they started making there helmets out of rotocaste latex instead of Vinyl, IT is also smaller and warped alot more.
If your doing a movie I'd say either look for a 95, 96 DP, or a fiberglass model. Those DP's on average go for around 100 bucks with a little more you can have a glass helmet that is easier to work with.
Rubies are 47-60.

Don't quote me on it... but it looks like a '97 to me... they are considered the worst of the DP series.

The helmet is a 97.. and according to that particular ebay seller there are no noted differences in the don post helmets, best avoided
