Review: I wont bore you with the whole story of the pro shop and crap. Fact, it snows where I live. Snow=fog so I got these. For the price (65) I got a tinted lens with it and I have gotten every penny back in return. Pretty sweet for me at least.
:Sturdy: This mask is all interlocked with the lens so that when you get bunkered from 2 feet and get hit 12 times in the face, the knowledge that your mask wont shatter or crack is a good thing.
:No FOG: The key to this is to take care of your mask. When the little booklet thing says 'dont rub the inside of the lens,' you should listen u dumba**. The first thing a person does when their mask is dirty is rub their grubby, paint filled fingers on the lens. When you go to wash it with water or whatever, and you rub the inside with paper or a cloth, this rubs off the anti fog coating that is on it. The easiest way to keep your lens clean, even after getting gogged(dotted, domed,w/e) is to run the lens and mask under running WATER. Dont rub off the droplets, just wave your mask around holding the chin portion so that the majority of the water comes off. This has worked for me the whole time I've had this mask.
:lens variety: I have 3 lenses, a smoke to blue, a clear (stock), and a Dytanium Ocean (mirrored blue) lens. Multiple lenses are useful for playing in different weather, indoor/outdoor, and just whenever. On a scale of 0 to 10(0=total darkness, 10=staring at the sun) I find the Dytanium is good for 4 to 9 in lighting, the smoke for 7-9 (outdoor), and the clear lens for anything under 4 (indoor, night play).
:Small: The size of this thing is rediculous. So freakin tiny. Barely covers my chin so i cut out the chin strap that comes attached and twisted the tabs forward. Neways, I got shot in the jaw 4 times the first day, all seperate games. The vents in the front prevent fog cuz there are so many of them, but getting shot there, all the paint goes the other way. P.S. Marbalizer tastes the worst of all paints :P
:lens frame:( This is the biggest drawback to all Invisions, the lens frame. This hard rubber is so tight against the lens that your thumbs will bleed in attempt to get it off the first time. I've found that holding the lens under running water while attempting to get the lens out helps a little. I decided to just buy a frame for each lens I have (3) which are only 20 bucks so its a worth while trade off of $40 instead of bleeding thumbs.
Conclusion: I enjoy owning this mask because everyone else has a profiler. Plus, I got a few spikes from a bracelet to make it stand out even more and scare some of the other players. I'd give this a ten but the lens is such a pain that it gets a nine. If it was like the Proto axis, itd be a ten but the axis is just plain ugly.
9 out of 10
