    Apr 22, 2006, 4:01 PM - most affordable helmet #1

    Hey all, I also posted this thread in the jango forum, but it applies to boba also. I am looking for the best helmet under or around 100$...either boba or jango would do fine (looking for jango, but could alter). Any info would be great. Thanks

    i could be wrong, but i think the only ones in that range are the rubies. maybe an older don post, but i don't know what those go for these days.

    Finding a quality cheap bucket is quite difficult... But I do see some Australian buckets on ebay that are around $100 for a fully painted bucket. My GML bought one, it's pretty cool, but the paintjob isn't quite canon, you could just redo it yourself.

    If that price shocks you, this might not be the best hobby for you, but you don't always need the best! I've seen some beautiful work come out of a $50 vinyl helmet. I'd say start small, and then build up as you progress.

    Don Post 95/96 most easy to find, and the cheapest, also you can make them look super good. They sell all the time for under 100

    Though the Don Posts and Rubies are cheaper, the accuracy is off. Couple that together with the difficulty of working with a vinyl bucket versus fiberglass...you may want to save your money and get a M_S, JD, or BKBT from someone here.
