Review: I had just finished doing a custom camo job on my JT-flex 8 mask. I ordered an olive color ghille skin to mask the lens glare. I was dissapointed in that the "olive" really looked more of a light green w/ a lot of white contrast. In addition the material itself was very shiny, almost as shiny as the cleaned lens itself. I pushed through that and took the time to install the skin as directed. I even let the lens sit undisturbed for a week before playing with it. True it looks very much like your looking through your screen door, which I did not feel would be a problem. I promptly changed my mind once out playing with it. All I play is woods ball, I'm usually the point guy or a forward recon type. This often means being sneaky, but at the same time some pretty quick movement when prompted. All of us wear camo, some of us have this down to match the seasons here in Western Montana. With that being said, I found it even tougher to pick out my shots on people with the skin on the lens. Then the inevitable happened, I took a head shot right to the lens... and... the ball tore a hole in the skin about the size of a half-dolar. I surgically excised the fragment, and attempted to clean the mask... what a pain that was. I never did get the ball residue off it or out of the little holes. At the end of the day, after being home and attempting to finally clean the remaining ball residue, I removed and tossed the remnants of it
Conclusion: Save your bucks, buy some loose fine netting from your archery hunting shop and drape it loosely in front of the mask. Wont shine, easily replaceable, adds depth, cheap.
