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
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.
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.
