The bucket effect from a full face helmet would be huge.
(From experience, I disagree - especially if we're taking about a wire grille, which has negligible water drag.)

No complaints here for either helmet. The wire grille of #1 has effectively no drag in the water; and I haven't had the sensation of #2 'pulling' on my neck in a wipeout.

The more the stuff you have around your head the more chances to get the line caught on something you cant see...

You are playing with fire here but each to his own I guess.

Put it this way, I sprained my ankle. Simple injury. No worries, right?

Well, got the DVT, on blood thinners, and my kidneys failed...
