Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month
1 year
Products Used:
JT Headshield-Comfort, weight, bouncability cannot compare
Kingman Java mask-LOL!
Flex 8-Good mask, a little less comfy to me, and I don't like the looks as much
Profilers-Look way better IMO, but not as comfy, and way more expensive ($90 at my shop, these were $75)
Marker Setup: Nothing at the moment.
Strengths: Comfy, bounces, agg, customizeable, field of vision, NO FOG!
Weaknesses: THE EARS! They extend above the strap and look dumb.
Review: So I needed a new mask. The JT Headshield was making me look like a n00b, and way big, heavy, didn't get any bounces, and fogged a lot. I also had my Kingman Java mask and that thing hurt a lot, got some bounces, but fogged a lot. I used a BE mask for one game, thing fell off and I immediately curled up and protected my face and we had to stop the game. These, now these are just pure gold (literally, mine are like a gold color). They're very comfortable. I had tried my friend's Profilers in a game before, they were very comfy, had a great field of vision, and were very light, and looked better IMO. The thing that sealed the deal with these is that they were my second choice, felt so good and light that I wouldn't know they were there if it wasn't for the glare off of the lense, and they almost fit me perfectly from the factory without any adjustment. I also had my friend shoot at me from about 30 feet away, five times. Three of them bounced when they hit the mouth piece, which is great. You can also put new lenses, goggles, straps, a whole lot of stuff on. They also refuse to fog, I rode around town on my bike for about an hour to test this (yes, I looked stupid as hell, but I had to test them) and no fogging whatsoever. I only have one complaint and that is THE STUPID FRIGGEN' EARS! God, what was JT smoking when they made these? The ears extend over the strap, and are ugly. I'm not pretty in any mask really, but these just make it look horrible! I feel sexier in my Headfield and Java mask with these ears. If I can find some new ones ears that don't extend over the strap, or if there's any way I can mod them without damaging the structural integrity of the mask (I noticed that the strap may fall out easier), comment this review, or shoot me a PM.

So I cut the ears, they look great, and feel no different. They cut very easy, but the blade I was using to cut them was kinda worn, so use a very sharp new blade. Make sure you pay attention when you cut them too, I almost FUBAR'ed the left ear.
Conclusion: These masks r0xz0r teh one one one one!1!1!!!1 Very comfortable, great looks, agg, and never fog. If Profilers were a little more comfortable, I would have them, but they're not, so I bought these. These two are the best masks really, you just need to decide which looks you like better. The Filers win on looks, but lose on good feeling for me. If JT made the ears not so tall, the mask would be a perfect 10, but these ears, and my shops crappy pricing pissed me off, so I'm sadly going to have to give it an 8. If I can get the ears off, I will up it to a 10.
