Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month
Paintball
Experience:
3 months
Similar
Products Used:
Rental ones, whatever those are.
Elite nVADER Mask (looks cool, but does not perform as well as the JT Spectra)
Marker Setup: Double pistols as primaries.
Being my first and second gun, the Core ZX pistols are both stock with no upgrades.
(Awaiting the quick caps)
2 Core leg holsters.
Strengths: Thermal lens? No fogging.
Strap has rubber grip
Very good peripheral vision
Comfortable
Weaknesses: Ugly looking
Visor is always off center
Worst foam insert ever!
Review: WHY IT"S GOOD:
- Does this thing really have a thermal lens? I got a pretty good deal then. $20.50 for this mask used from ebay shipped to me. It doesn't fog, so maybe it does have a thermal lens.
- Got shot straight in the face (left eye) and i barely felt anything.
- Sometimes I really do forget that I'm wearing a mask when I put this thing on.
- It's got some ghetto rubbery stuff on the back band to keep it from sliding off your head.

WHY IT SUCKS:
- Foam insert is horrible. Some guy did a review that said the foam drenched like a sponge in water when you sweat. And boy was he right. It's completely nasty!
- Am I the only one that thinks this thing is completely ugly? If it were black, I think Luke Skywalker would have pulled his sword ring on me.
- Paint always gets stuck under the eyepiece. (Dried paint is sitting there now as I write this review....yuck)
- I wish the mask covered more of the chin. It seems like the mask cuts short and should be a bit longer to provide more coverage.
Conclusion: Functions as its supposed to, but that darn foam insert is just plain yucky. I'm rating it an 8 b/c the foam really gets on my nerves and it'll get on yours too. But i still recommend it b/c the price is good even for a new one and it's thermal and comfortable.
Rating:
8 out of 10
