Products Used:
I used to use a green V-Force Armor (not the rental version). This mask was good for a beginner like myself at the time.
Marker Setup: I own (use) the following marker with the following upgrades/accessories:

Gun: Silver Tippmann 98 Custom.
Barrel (other than stock barrel): Black 14-inch Smart Parts Tear Drop barrel.
Loader/hopper: Blue Viewloader 12 volt Revolution loader (has an X-Board in it). with a View Loader Talkin' Timer (sound-activated).
Special trigger: Response trigger (I own the stock trigger on my gun with the response trigger installed; it is a single-trigger with the response system in it.).
Air source: 20 ounce CO2 tank with a blue thread protector.

Other upgrades/ accessories that are not in use on this gun are a Flatline barrel and a double trigger.

Even though it is not a marker, I have no where else to list what mask I have. I own a blue 2004 Dye Invision mask.
Strengths: - Comfortable.
- Thermal.
- GREAT ventilation.
- Good-looking.
- Great color.
- Outstanding sound when you communicate with it.
Weaknesses: - Changing the lense.
Review: The Dye Invision is a great mask. In the 4 times I have played with it so far, it has performed outstandingly. It never fogs up, I can breathe through it well, and when I talk through it, my teammates can hear me clearly. Like ANY mask, the lens will blur if sweat drips in it (obviously). But, just clean it out with water, and blot out the water bubbles/ spots with a soft cloth, and you're good to go! This mask is perfect for any paintballer!


Did I mention that you can see so clearly through it?
Conclusion: This mask is excellent. My friend, who is a skilled paintballer, owns a V-Force Profiler, which has an average price of $90. I tried it on. It's a little bit better than the Invision, because it has a wider range of view. Besides that, it's the same as the Invision. The V-Force Profiler is the only mask that is better than the Invision. I never had to, but changing the lens on the Invision is a pain (according to sources). Just get your local paintball shop to do it for you, and that obstacle has been tackled.
For some people, however, price is an issue. This is an expensive mask (the average price is around $80). But, you do get what you pay for. It's worth it to save your money for a while until you have enough to purchase this mask. It is great. Clear lens, thermal, good range of view, good looking, and comfortable. Not to mention, it is made by Dye, one of the best paintball companies in existance (in my opinion). What more could you want from a mask? A mask like this deserves a great rating. Keep up the good work, Dye, you're getting a 10/10 (100%, which is an "A" in these circumstances)!
