Review: This was the first mask I ever owned...cosequently, I didn't treat it right, and had to replace the lens after about 4 months of use...this is where the biggest drawback came into play, because if you think the mask is hard to find, try finding replacement lenses. I ended up changing masks, but I still look back on this one a little too fondly. The FOV is so large that you really can forget you're wearing it (which is where the large profile can create the biggest problem; you have to be concious of how far this thing sticks out from your face or you'll constantly be hitting crap). It's hard plastic mask construction and huge lens surface makes even miracle bounces impossible (and the large profile makes it a huge target). The lens retaining method is simple and can be tough to remove occasionally (especially if it's greasy), but it works well and is still easier than most high-end masks.This mask is extremely durable; the foam is glued-on well, the hard construction keeps you from getting thumped through the mask by face shots. The side protection seemed lacking at first, but through all of my use with it, it was satisfactory.
Conclusion: My biggest issue was the masks rarity. But as far as design and construction, I can dismiss most of the flaws as tournament-player nit-picking. This is a very good mask for the price. It performs well, and I never wanted to change. If you play woodsball and rec ball, This is the only mask I would recommend.
