    Default Shield for phenix tl-2

    Got a phenix tl-2 helmet for christmas and it should be in soon. My question is I just got myself a new shield about one month ago. It is a 6 1/4 New York shield with insert. The holes were made to fit my cairns 1044. Can I use this shield on the phenix tl-2? I don't mind making a new set of holes.

    It more than likely will not be wide enough. The TL-2 takes a wide body shield. When I got my TL-2 the shield from my 1044 would not fit it. The same shield fits my N6A fine though.

    That's what I thought as well, but if you look at the firestore shield builder, they make available the exact same shield for the 1044 and the phenix. It's a 6 1/4 ny shield with insert. Just mine had holes punched in it when shipped. The phenix has no holes.

    why don't you try it and see if you can get it to fit?

    In the event it does work you will have two sets of holes in your shield. A new one is $38. Throw the old one on the shelf.

    Been there, done that, it didn't work.
