Review: Just last month my old JT Nforcer gave out on me. The lense needed to be changed, but in the process of getting the s.o.b. out, I scratched up the lense pretty bad. The lense that I had in my Nforcer is the same lense that are in Proflexes. The lense wasn't that great. It was thermal but it still fogged on me and I found that it scratched very easily. Also, if it does scratch you might as well buy a new mask because it is impossible to remove.

The Morph simply made sense for me. It has the highest "credible" rating on pbreview. The two masks in front of it simply don't have enough reviews to make their rating count. When I recieved my Morph in the mail last month, I was very satisfied. Let me tell you why it is such a good mask and why it is better than all the others.

The V-force Morph fits nice and snug on your head, wrapping around the back of it and sitting firmly on your cheek bones. The foam is very nice, a little bit too thick for my taste but still really comfortable. Most of the mask's weight rests on the bone just below your eyes. It isnt very uncomfortable; it just takes some getting used to. You dont even feel anything other than the strap on the back of your head, a bit of the soft ear pieces and a slight pressure just bellow your eyes. When you breathe, your breath doesn't bounce off the mask back at your face like on JT masks. Instead, the large venting and distance the mask sits from your face allows the air to cool off quickly and dispell through the mask. This is one of the nicest features of this mask. It almost gets rid of the clammy cramped feeling you get with most masks. It is very easy to forget that you have the Morph on when you are in a game.

The vision is absolutely incredible. The lense on this thing is mammoth, many times larger than the JT lenses ( I compared the two side by side). Even though the lense sits really far from your face, it is still large enough to wrap all the way around to the sides of your eyes, past where you can see when you are looking straight forward. When you don't have the visor on your view is completely unobstructed when you look up. Also, there are large eye wells in the mask right below each eye which allow you to see the ground just infront of your feet when your head is in a neutral position. This is extremely helpful when running. The only part of the mask you can see when it is on is a small ridge around the lower rim. This is a stark contrast to JT lenses which impeded your vision far more.

The price on this mask is great and I would also like to mention that it is impossible to fog. The only thing I would have to say I don't like about it is that it is heavy in comparison to the Proflex and that the "fit" of the mask is slightly off. It seems that too much of this weight is placed right below your eyes which seems like it could get cumbersome. However, the thick foam there makes up for that.

I know nothing deserves a 10 unless it is perfect but I have to give this mask a 10 to compete with the other masks that are recieving 10's.
Conclusion: I would buy it if you are looking for a mask in this price range. It certainly was the right choice for me and I am glad that I didn't buy a JT mask again. It will improve my game a ton and I am looking forward to playing with it soon. This mask makes paintball so much more fun. Why not drop 63 dollars on it and buy it?
-if you liked my review be sure to say that it was helpful. Then I won't feel like a complete looser for writing such a huge review on a mask.
