Products Used:
brASS seagull 1st and worst, Spectra flex 7 IZE (New mask to replace nVader) and Scott Badboy, Comfortable but fugly and with no forehead protection.
Marker Setup: AGD automag classic, 32* precision barrel, 47 ci 3k nitro, Flex 7, and lots o' other goodies.
Strengths: Cheap, Good lense and visor, takes accessories
Weaknesses: Foam, ventilation, fogs a little
Review: strengths: It is very inexpensive (around $20-25 at your local proshop), It takes all Elite/ whipper accessories, it's lense is much easier to replace than with the Spectra, the visor actually deflects hits which makes it both aesthetically and functionally positive, and the lense is clear.

Weaknesses: The foam is quite rough and uncomfortable, and the single lense that comes on the regular model fogs, though not horribly. Lastly the ventellation is slightly below average and the vent holes are small (the ones right above the eyes on the goggle frame)

Solutions: to fix the rough foam, I took some Wetex foam (buy it from proshops) and custom fit it to the mask. Buy a thermal lense or combat vision to stop the fogging (it will NEVER fog again) Cut the holes a tiny bit lager on the goggle frame (same area where you stick the visor) to make it vent better (let hot, moist air rise and cool dry air sink)
This will make this a very comfortable and functional mask if you are creative and on a tight budget.
Conclusion: If you would rather have money to play than have a really excellent mask then ths is the mask for you. I give it an 8 because it should come stock with the upgrades i made. If you have time and are creative and are on a tight budget like I was before I got my Flex 7 then this is the mask for you
