Resin Helmets - how do they stand up?

Hiya fellas,
How many resin helmets are there out there? I was thinking about doing some amatuer casting with a DP 95 that I just bought but was wondering if resin was strong enough.

Aren't they prone to cracking?

The MH helmet is made out of Resin and it is very Durable. I dropped in on the floor once and nothing happened.

I think it all depends on what kind of resin. A lot of it is prone to shattering, but the MH is made of urethane resin and looks solid.

Does depend on the type of resin. I had a Manofwarstudios helmet and it was a good solid resin - I also dropped mine and it just bounced :eek:

I fiberglassed my MH on the inside just to be safe, but it is pretty much overkill, the resin is as sturdy as DP viynl.

I dropped my MH and it cracked right by the eye area at the visor, but that's probably because the visor had been cut out and the new one wasn't installed yet. It was a pretty easy fix and I think ended up just adding to the overall battle damage.

I believe its actually made from a urethane foam resin which mixes air into the plastic leaving it somewhat more fragile than a regular urethane. This would also explain the light weight of the helmet. A great bucket nevertheless, but still be cautious and don't get to over confident when doing the visor and so fourth...
