Review: I loved this mask and have been playing with it for about 5 trips out to the paintball but now I am planning on investing on a new mask that would protect me much better. This sunday I got shot in the face from about 8 feel away and the paintball "bent" the soft part of the facemask back and the ball broke right on my mouth. My lower and upper lip started bleeding right away and i got a mouthful of paint from it mixed with blood. -_- I'm fed up with eating paint all the time with this mask. The holes are way too big and there are too many of them. The paint flies right through and onto your face. Another thing that I dont like about this mask is that it doesnt protect your jaw and ears. I've gotten hit in both those places before and it hurt badddd. This mask isnt very low profile either. It looks kind of silly from the side. The mask sticks out in front of your face. The chin straps are worthless too.
Conclusion: This mask is pretty expensive for a mask that doesn't protect you very well.

He doesn't like balls in his face.... very understandable. Most nice speedball masks are like that? Really cause I thought profilers, e-vents, and invisions protected 10x better.

I 100% agree about getting hurt with this mask. I would never have spent the money and honestly, I should have been warned about this mask by the pro shop. Very dissapointed in this mask and am going to rate this mask once i am done complaining here. I have used other field masks and when I got popped in the face part of the mask, my lips and mouth were splattered with paint, but no pain, swelling, or bleeding. I am tossing my mask and getting somethng a little more sturdy around the jaw line. Beware.

...you realize what sets that mask apart from everyother, is the bounce ability it has... that would be why pros use this maks instead of the flex-8...

it's next to impossible to get a shot on this mask from further than 20 feet if you're playing right (besides the lenses obviously)...

if you play paintball, get this mask, it's the best mask in the world by far... but on the other hand, if you play woodsball, dont get it... you're jus gonna complain about getting hurt lol

People like you bummerangs7 call yourselves "pros". The "pros" need to put away their massive ego (not the gun dum bum) and think about what your saying. The paintball mask was created for safety am I wrong? If you take away the safety what was the paintball mask made for... nothing! I have seen many people have bounces on profilers and even vents but dont worry because when you walk off the feild with a bloody lip you can just remind yourself about how "pro" you are.

tippy fan, ill admit im no pro, but what you said is retarted, real tournament players dont care about a little bit of pain, you get a mask for pretty much everything except that, comfort, breathability, bounce factor, etc., i would rather buy a really good mask that just covers the bare essenmtials (ie eyes, face) than a shi tty mask that covers your whole head.

tippy, eamo, I think you guys miss the bummerangs point. He says if you play speedball, you donīt need so good protection and seek comfortability, if you play woodsball, it is going to hurt, because there is much more close engagements in scenario plays (f.e. inside buildings)...
