There are three
basic levels of quality in regards to wrestling masks - pro,
semi-pro and commercial.
quality masks are the masks the wrestlers use in the ring. They are
created to hold up during ring use and abuse. They normally have
double-stitching with liners to give seams extra support. The
materials used tend to be of heavier and highest quality. Stitching
on the face patterns are tight and consistent. Pro masks also are
custom-fitted for the wearer.
masks look very similar to pro quality masks but usually are single
stitched at the seams with lighter weight fabrics. The face pattern
stitching tends to be a little less consistent, but pretty good.
These masks tend to be made in standard sizes and are intended for
fan use. If you want a very good looking mask for less cost than pro
quality masks then this is the choice I would recommend.
Commercial masks tend to be the bottom line choice. They are usually
made from cheap materials with a foam lining. Stitching overall
varies from mediocre to poor and face patterns usually are sloppier
than pro and semi-pro. These masks are made in mass quantities and
are the ones most commonly sold at lucha libre shows.
