JT Radar (single then thermal lense)
some Brass Eagle POS
PMI Piranha BLVF Electronic Trigger Frame Marker, with 32 Deg Expansion chamber, and SmartParts 14 inch Progressive Barrel
Wide field of view, soft, nicely wraps around your eyes.
Lack of any protection past the ears, fogs up in extreme heat, thermal lense cracks.
I got this mask just cause it looked cool and cost was 21 bucks!! First game i played was 5 hours of light rain and temps 65 ~ 75 deg F, after applying extra antifog spray no fog, no problem. It is very confortable, and for those who feel that the JT Elite style is too tight and squeezes your temples too much, this might be a mask for you. When playing in high heat the mask will fog a bit, but ur generic bough on the field anti fog will take care of that. Never got shot in the face so i donno how well the soft rubber will work, but prolly way better than having paintball splinter in your face like on regular masks with too big holes in front! I know i was bleeding in the JT Radar i have more than one from that.... Side and top protection is good, I like that mask and keep using it cause over all it preforms as well as JT and Z-Leader for about 25 bucks less... plus you can't beat the field of view!
UPDATE, I fitted the mask with thermal photochromatic lense from Kingman, always after 4 - 6 games of wearing the thermal lense whould crack down the middle... this is not too good if it cracks on you during the game, for one paint can get in between the layers, 2 it can not be enough and let the ball pass in direct hit.
For the price, the mask has wikked features, it is confortable, nice wraps around your face, its light, and stas put, deep nose cut ( for those with bigger than avreage noses, yeah I'm pointing at you greek boy!) I reccomend this mask for any begginer, intermediate, and even an occasional tournament player, there are mask for 150 bucks there... but do you really want to spend so much on it? It works, done! There is the issue with cracking thermal lense, I still like this mask but the brittle thermal lense makes me look elsewhere for a better mask.
