    Sep 14, 2006, 3:38 PM - How strong are your magnets? :) #1

    Ever since I saw a post about using magnets to hold the ear cap on, I've wanted to do it (not that I have an amazing helmet, or anything, as it is a DP '96, but more because its fun to have all the bells and whistles you can). This past week, I installed some. Here's the results, and yes the magnets are holding up the helmet.

    Those look pretty good. Only problem I have with magnets is that my has got quite a few electronics, and magnets can damge them.

    My magnets can bench their own body weight. Oh and also what kind of magnets would I use if I wanted to hold my armor on with magnets?

    as long as there rare earth magnets then your all good but I would use magnets that are .25 inch rather then the thinner ones.
