The NME Senior certified cat eye cage fits perfectly on the junior NME masks. I know because I have one fitted on my son's mask. The certified cat eye is just that - certified. It is approved for use in all leagues. It is NOT illegal. You will NOT be kicked out. There will be NO penalty. Just make sure you use the certified cage and not the UNcertified cage.

No, I would not recommend a cateye cage for any goalie under the age of 18. It is illegal, you can get a penalty and kicked out of the game.

Question
NME3 vs NME5?
Comparing the 2 masks and I think they are very simular if not identical with weight, sizing and styling with the only difference being the inside foam. What levels would be approiate for what mask. I would never risk my sons injury for a few more dollars, however I do not want to over buy either and spend the additioal money when not necessary.

Thanks

A couple of considerations:
1) The NME 3 comes in a youth size, the NME 5's smallest size is JR (your son's age is listed as 6-12 - don't know where he'd fall in the sizing of this mask).
2) The LD & HD foams used in the NME 5 offer better protection than that regular EPP foam of the NME 3. If your son is at an advanced level, then the NME 5 may be a better choice.
3) The NME 5 has a flat bar cage (better vision) and the NME 3 has the traditional rounded bar cage.
In the end, both masks are good for the younger guys. If your son is around 12'ish and he's facing some pretty good slapshots at an advanced level, then I'd go with the NME 5.
Feel free to call me tomorrow (anywhere between 8am-5pm CST) and I'll be happy to talk this out with you a little more if you'd like.

The NME5 comes standard with the certified flat bar cage only. However, you can purchase separate "NME" branded replacement cages which will fit this mask, including a certified cat eye and a non-certified cat eye. Links to those items are below:

Question
NME5 question
I'm in the market to buy a new mask for my 8 year old son. I want something that will give him the best protection and will last, I can't understand why the NME3 is so much cheaper in price is there that much of a quality difference? He is moving from youth so it will need to last a little bit.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Yes - there is a big difference in both shell quality and foam quality between the NME3 and NME5. Though both shells are made of polycarbonate, the shell of the NME5 is somewhat thicker. Additionally, the NME5 comes with a dual density liner - a harder foam against the shell, and a softer foam on top of that (at the contact points of the foam to the head).

The most important thing is to insure that the mask fits the head snugly and properly. I've attached a video link to this post to show you exactly how the mask should fit. Even the best mask, if not fit properly, can cause injuries.

Question
NME 5 sizing
Looking at the NME 5 for my 8 year old who already has a 22" head circumference. If i go with the senior instead of junior, since the low size on senior is 22", is the mask still going to be snug around the face and chin to fit properly or will the junior provide a better fit here despite being at the upper range of the head circumference? I worry that the senior might be more open around the face or is there not much difference here? Have no local option to try one on as the few pro shops don't stock goalie gear.

Thanks.

Based on experience, the SR will not fit your son's head properly. It may fit okay around the forehead, but the face opening and the overall length will be much too big.
