Thanks very much guys. I wanted to try them all, but found a Shoei X-14, Bell Star and AGV Corsa all on sale so ordered those three. Measuring eye ports, the AGV had the widest (top to bottom) opening by about 2mm. The X-14 and Star measured equally. I had the most "upward" visibility with the AGV, but apparently you can adjust the padding in the X-14 to adjust the view up 4 degrees. I didn't try that as, of the three, it happened to be the loosest on my head - the other two had a tighter "race fit". In the end I got the AGV because, for me, I could see the best and it fit my head best. The other two were really nice helmets. I didn't weigh them, but just holding them I couldn't feel a material difference. Thanks again for all the input. Too bad there's not some database of objective information about helmet specs.
