Products Used:
Dye invision I3 - almost the same - I like the Dye a little better
Marker Setup: autococker prostock 04 with cp dropfoward, oricle bolt, and an all american barrel, viewloader egg 2, 68/4500 dye throttle

Smart parts ion egg 2, and 68/4500 dye throttle
Strengths: Flex
No fog
Almost everything
Weaknesses: Wider profile than dye I3
Don't like the look as much as the I3
Review: Well the man at the shop told me that the only [real] differences betweenthe proto and the I3 was that the Proto is better for big headed people (they were the same price at my store). I was luckly enough to try both before I baught one (i know the man real well). they performed very similer, almost identical, both had, a lot of bounce, no fog, great vision, excelent venting, and a tight profile. I have an average head, so the proto was a little wider than it needed to be for me. Both masks are good, and either will work, but you need to try them both on, and see what feel better for you. if you have a big head, then get the proto, because it is bigger, but if you have a small or normal head, get the dye. I got more mask hits with the proto, becasue it is wider, but not enough to make a difference. I like the way the I3 fits on my face better, which is why, in the end I got the I3. the only down side of the I3 is changing the lense is hard, but it gets easier after you do it a couple of times, and learn what to do. the Proto is very easy to change the lenses. you just turn the tabs, and out they come, however it can me a little hard to put the lense back in, but it is still pretty easy. Get either, becasue they are almost the same (both the best I have ever used), and the only real way to decide is how it fits your own face.
Conclusion: This mask is amazing, and no mater if you get the I3 or the PRoto, you will be happy. they are almost the same mask, so try both on, and make a decision. This mask wasn't perfect for me, but is came pretty close. IF you are looking for a new mask, and have the money buy this one, or an I3, you won't regret it!

A couple things...

Please clarify on the contradiction "...I got more mask hits with the proto, becasue it is wider, but not enough to make a difference..."

Also, from the sounds of it, you don't actually own this mask, why are you reviewing a mask you tried for an extremely short period of time (effectively never tried it). The problem is you have absolutely no base of experience to be providing a review on it.
