I had been wanting a new shield and had been doing research on what would be best. My brother had gotten a metal shield and I really liked it, but the design options from this company just didn’t fit what I was looking for. Then I cam across Taylors Tins and was blown away with the beauty and options they had. I contacted them told them what I wanted and they sent me custom concept art for my shield! This was not some drop down menu this was a personalized custom shield for me! I thought it looked great but was blown away once it actually got delivered to me.
First it came in a custom made piece of fire hose with Taylors Tins buttons sewn on, this to me is a special touch that sets this product apart from the rest of the pack. Then the shield itself is awesome! The mounting it actually pretty easy
It really was as simple as in the video, I will admit it was intimidating a bit because if you mess up it could be ruined, however a very basic use of a drill and this will be zero issue.
I was waiting to catch a fire before I wrote the review because even though I know the tests these things go through, performance on the actual fire ground is always the great equalizer. Just as advertised I have had this helmet in 4 fires to date and it has held up under conditions that I know would have damaged leather shields.
I can not say enough good things about this product and the company itself make sure you check out the website (link above) and their Facebook page. They are also on Instagram (taylorstins). If you are in the market for a new shield then give these a go, as they say stop burning up leather fronts and start wearing Taylors Tins!
Make sure you spend 1 hour in the gym, 1 hour in the library, and one hour doing hands on training everyday.
As usual thanks for reading, spread the word, and STAY SAFE but aggressive.
