We hope this email finds you well and l thought we’d contact you now that the squash calendar is underway again with a packed session ahead.
Morgan is absolutely delighted with the variety of coloured bands you sent for her i-Mask – she’s been showing them off and the other squash kids were totally impressed with the range. in terms of the new sweat bands – they seem to be a big hit, easy to clean totally absorbent and very comfortable to wear compared to their predecessor.
Hi Max, here is my story.
I first started wearing an I-Mask as soon as I started squash. My coach gave one to me and I looked at it and had no idea what it was. My first thoughts were, “ Oh, I’m going to look so retarded in this.” My coach decided to make me flick my nose because I wouldn’t stop complaining. This made me even more confused; I had no idea why he was getting me to flick my nose. He then explained to me that this is what it feels like if you got hit by the ball. Only problem is I have a high pain tolerance.
I soon noticed that it was definitely better than wearing glasses. I saw my first ever squash collision at Friday night Junior Comp. One of the girls who was wearing an I-Mask got hit in the visor by her opponents back swing and the visor just popped out and fell off. I then thought that if she had of been wearing glasses there could have been a serious injury.
I now promote wearing I-Masks to all our younger, up and coming juniors in particular speaking to the parents about all the positives and its great seeing them on the court wearing an I-Mask. At this stage I have no intentions of changing to glasses, it is too risky and asking for a serious eye injury.
Just to let you know, I only knew about your product after watching the Discovery Channel show on your product. Just to let you know, once I have had someone break a racquet hitting my face but the visor took the blow, and saved my face.
Hi Max, June and the I-Mask Team,
Thank-you sincerely for your invaluable support.
We proudly wear and promote I-Mask at all times on and off the court. Our Junior Squash Program members all understand the importance of wearing your companies leading Protective Eyewear product, while having fun on the court.
Next year will see a new name for our squash to Mildura Squash. All programs will continue to be developed by Paul and Nathen.
We look forward to our valuable partnership in the New Year.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to All.
Paul & Nathen Takacs
A pleasure to talk to you earlier. As mentioned, I believe that each and every player should be mandated to wear your product. It is brilliant and the protection it offers is invaluable. I have a friend who is an eye surgeon at St Vincents here in Mlb and she has told me of some of the most horrific incidents with eye injuries on the squash court.
Anyway, back to the point…..
My Imask has a split at the rivets caused by a big hit. It is less than 1 year old. I appreciate your offer to replace it.
In addition to the replacement one, I would like to purchase another one too. I am happy to transfer the funds to your account. Please either call me or email.
The mask I have now is black.
Thanks again for your attention.

Here are a few words for a testimonial.
“When I first started playing squash I got hit accidentally in the face
with a racket. My parents suggested I wear an i-Mask. After putting it on, I
felt completely safe and was able to return to the court.”

Although there are many different styles of protective eyewear for squash on the market, most of which I have assessed for performance as a member of the Squash Australia Protective Eyewear Committee, no protective eyewear on the market today comes close to the performance and protection of i-MASK protective eyewear. In all peripheral vision tests that I have conducted, i-MASK Protective Eyewear far surpasses the performance of any other eyewear – especially any eyewear with nose “bridges”. As a coach of players with present and future professional careers in Squash, I can only recommend i-MASK Protective Eyewear for their and other player’s use.”

Max thank you for the quick reply, I am a very strong supporter of your product and have used it for a little over a year and would not wear anything else for eye protection and safety. The address at the end of my email is correct, in fact we communicated a little over a year ago concerning the sweat bands used in the mask. Being retired and able to play racquetball three or four time a week with a bunch of very good players the I-Mask is an essential piece of my equipment.
You have a very good product and one that every racquet player should use! Thank you for the replacement, I’ll pass that on to my fellow racquetball playing friends. Finding a person and (or) company who’s business model is based on integrity and product quality is harder to find now days.
Sincerely and thank you,
I’ve been playing racquet ball for years and though I had had a few close calls almost getting hit in the face by the ball, I could not find eye protective wear that was comfortable. I sweat a lot during athletics and every pair of eye glasses I tried for protection (and I tried several different styles) would fog up as soon as I got hot so much so that I could not play competitively while wearing them. Then about a year and a half ago I caught the follow through swing of my opponent’s racquet directly in the face; my nose was broken and required surgery. Now desperate to find eye, and face, protection my wife searched the web and found I-Mask! I was immediately interested in the unique design. After emailing back and forth with their representative a couple of times I ordered an I-Mask and I’ve been thrilled with it. The thing I like most about it is how lightweight it is; it doesn’t inhibit my vision or movement of my head despite the extremely face-paced environment on the court. Perhaps even better my problems with sweat and fog are gone; the shield is positioned such that air easily passes between it and my face helping to keep me cool and removing the potential fogging problem I had with all other protective eyewear. I play several times a week and have been hit by the ball more than once directly on the shield or on some part of the I-Mask several times without injury. This is a fabulous product and a must have for athletes playing court racquet sports, especially sweaty ones!
I’ve been promoting I-Mask all the time by wearing it everytime I play in tournaments, training, coaching lessons, fixtures even when I am training by myself or having a hit with Mum and Dad.
I also get mum to sew the patches on my squash shirts, especially my rep shirts.
I like I-Mask because it’s the only eyewear that also protects my mouth and nose, it never falls off and the colours are really cool.
Do the kids in Mayalsia wear I-Mask?
Thank you Max I will look out for the items in the mail and thank you again for your help…………..Jason
