    Thumbs up

    Fireman4949 is right. I just bought six TL2s for our department from HandTub Junction. Dave will take good care of you! Thanks to all who posted on this thread, you helped make our decision on the Phenix!

    Default Great Thread!

    This thread has great information...exactly what this forum is designed to do. I have been thinking about getting a leather helmet and originally had thought about getting a Cairns. After reading this thread and getting info on a Cairns thread I posted, I have decided to go with a Phenix. I too, have contacted Handtub junction to get pricing and ask questions...GREAT customer service, even though I told them it would be a little while before I order. Thanks for all the info.
    The success of a fire department depends on the willingness of its members to put aside their differences and work for the benefit of the dept/community.

    Does anyone have any info on the older (1998-ish) Phenix leathers? I need a couple parts and apparently they don't make anything for those anymore...

    I'm buying my TL-2 in the next week, however, i also wondered about painting them. Mine will be black, but if I do get promoted, is it alright to repaint it, and would i go about it the same way as a Cairns helmet?

    Does this Phenix look different than anyone else's. I think the filigree on this is way different than mine. Does Phenix use different filligree's? His also looks more shiny. Check it out, it is on ebay:

    I guess I am not the only ones that surfs ebay everyday. I was hoping nobody would notice the helmet until I found out more info on it from the seller.

    Yes it is much different than any Phenix that I have ever seen. I have emailed the seller to get more info on the helmet and hopefully some better pictures of the manufacture label and the rear brim. I will keep this post updated as to what I find out. I will probably bid on the helmet if in fact it is a "real" Phenix.

    I believe that they do. Check out the custom job they put on ours in Fairfax County. The embossing is the same as the center of the patch.

    Thanks for that. I did not know they did custom work like that. That is really nice. Mine has a 9/11 and W6 stamp in the filligree.

    So I got my TL-2 today and I could not be happier I don't know what the hell took me so long to get one. Now I know what I have been missing out on the last 8 years. I can truly say I will never were another helmet besides a leather again.

    No kidding!

    A free helmet every now and then would suffice.
