Review: Alright, I've only actually played with this mask twice. I was getting VERY tired with my X-Ray mask, so I went on the look-out for a low-priced mask that came with a thermal lense and a fan. I was going to buy the Pro Flex then add the fan, but it was too expensive, then I found this.

--------------
| Strengths |
--------------

+ This mask COMES with a built-in fan, no more spending an additional $70 on a fan to go with a mask.
+ The 20/20 allows you to see with your peripheral vision.
+ My glasses fit snugly inside, and don't fog because of the fan.
+ Thermal lense.
+ I find that the PCS is comfortable. The foam isn't scratchy and doesn't irrate the skin.
+ When you adjust the strap to fit your head, it will stay that way. It hasn't loosened and hasn't felt unsecure.
+ The lense is easy to remove.
+ You get it all for $75.00 Canadian, but Camouflage costs $20.00 more at my shop.
+ I feel safer with this on as compared to my X-Ray.

= Both a strength and a weakness -- Many ventilation slits -- The mask is BREATHABLE. Thank god.

- Camouflage would of costed me an extra $20.00.
- It isn't the BEST mask out there, but it's good for the price.

= Both a strength and a weakness -- Many ventilation slits -- you make taste paint a bit easier. It's not a problem, but I figured it might be an aquired taste for some people. Just suck it up if you don't like it, well actually spit it out :-).
Conclusion: Ahh, what to say. I love this mask. It's amazing for under $80.00. I wouldn't recommend it for a serious tourny player because there are other masks out there that would suit you a little better because this mask does have a slightly large profile. If you play woods, or speedball at a non-tourny level, go for it. Buy this mask if you want a comfortable, fog-free, safe mask.

No, I didn't know they used this mask. I didn't think any professional teams would use it.. not because it isn't good but because it's still not the best thing out there.
