My old optivisor was 35 years old and just barely holding together.
Yes, it’s a one owner optivisor and I’m really that old. It was a
gift from my father on my 16th birthday when I was taking my first
silversmith course. So I splurged and bought a new one at an after
Christmas sale at my local rock shop. And have not been happy since.
My list of complaints are as follows:
Too small. When I use a sweat sponge I cannot get it to fit
comfortably around my 7 BE melon (head) without giving myself a
Too difficult to move up and down smoothly. I can’t seem to get
the cheaper plastic adjustment knobs to a happy medium for moving the
visor up and down like my old one.
Lost the adjustment knobs (See the above problem) from having
them too loose to get the visor to move up and down without giving me
a neck sprain.
Has any optivisor users found any solutions for the above problem?
I’m not looking for any referrals to having my head shrunk, thank
If not what is a viable replacement?
I was sorry to see optivisor had cheapened the construction on a
product that has served me so well for 35 years.
