72/45 carbon fiber tank
The first day that i wore these i got a bounce off the side of the bottom. I love this mask. It's so comfortable, stylish, and you get the best field of vision.
Pros- Great field of vision- this mask has the best field of vision that i have ever used, it's easy to look around and you can see everything. You can see almost as much as when you have no mask on at all and defiantly beats all other masks in this area.
Light- This mask is so light, you hardly notice that it's on at all. As soon as you pick it up you can tell that this is one of, if not the lightest mask on the market. When you take out the lens you can also see that the lens on it's own makes up the majority of the weight of this mask.
Comfortable- this mask has great foam surrounding the lens. The soft ears provide even more.
Soft Ears- The soft ears provide comfort for your sensitive little ears, and a little bounce too! The soft ears help keep your profile small by wrapping around your head and sense their soft it provides a little bounce to help you stay in the game longer.
Easy To Take Apart- With the design of the lens, and how it's held in, you can take out the lens, strap, and soft ears in seconds. All you have to do is take out these small little clips and then the empire symbol disk and out comes your lens and strap. This is great because it allows you to completely clean your lens and mask in between games.
No Fog- I love these lenses because i haven't't had this thing fog up even the slightest bit sense i have had them. Thermal, and even the vforce profiler fogged up on me a little every once a while, but the Events haven't let me down once.
Bounce Factor- The soft material on the bottom of this mask and the soft ears make it allot harder for a paintball to break. I have had many paintballs bounce off this mask. It's great. the way that they designed this mask makes it so that if the paintball hits the side of the front piece it will simply follow the mask and bounce off. The soft ears also get bounces all the time, simply because their, well, soft.
Low Profile- This mask is so small. It follows the shape of your face, and makes you slightly harder to see while your snap shooting.
CONS- The soft ears- This is hard to explain, the soft ears sometimes get pulled off the mask, i mean their still on the strap, but when you take off the mask it can slip towards the back of the mask. This is easy to fix and doesn't expose or come off your head while your wearing it. Another think that some people don't like about the ears is that it exposes a little part of your ear lobe on the bottom, this dosn't bother me and hasn't't hurt any worse for me but i've heard complaints from others.
Easy to loose pieces- This will also be hard to explain to those who don't already have this mask. The way that the lens is held on is by the Empire logo things on the sides, the empire thing goes through the lens, mask, and strap. The way that you take it off is by swiveling the strap up and pulling out the empire thing. There are two Little pieces that lock down the strap and preventing the strap from going up and those are generally hard to keep track of when you take them out.
(I had to think hard to come up with these cons so don't take them to seriously....wow my head hurts)
Over all I recommend this mask to all tourney and serious players. For the average rec ball player this mask may be too pricey at around 100, but for the serious player i defiantly suggest you get this. You'll be happy you did. The Pros defiantly outweigh the Cons.
