When I buy helmets, I buy what offers the MOST protection AND fits me the best. For the life of me, I can't find a Bell helmet that will fit properly. The last Shoei I had left sore spots on my melon after a 6 hour ride. I wound up with an Arai VX Pro. Best lid I've ever used because it fits my head. It's that simple.

I'm glad to see you retired the old helnet after testing it. Most people don't realize one good thump to the helmet could damage the inside of the helmet but still look ok on the outside.
Once the inside is broken, it's just a little better than not wearing one at all.
If I ring my bell on a get off, that helmet hits the shelf for good. Better safe than sorry.
I also agree that the best helmet for you is the one that fits the best and is the most comfortable. Try on a lot! Most manufactures make helmets with different shell shapes for different heads.
