Tippmann armor mask, Jt Nvader, Proto Switch EL, Java V-type
Spyder vs1 with a 14" razzor barrel, eVlution 3 hopper, and a check it slip on feedneck.
No Chin Strap
So far I've used this mask three times and I am really impressed. I bought mine for 30$ at my local pro shop which is pretty cheap. This is the best mask I've used so far. I used a proto switch EL for about 9 months untill the foam on it started chipping. I like this mask more than the proto switch EL. First off the lens is massive. I can see as much out of this mask as I can when I'm not wearing a mask at all. The lens also doesn't scratch very much. I have maybe 1-2 small scratches on the lens and I've used it three times (woodsball and speedball). It's also really protective. It's durable and doesn't feel like a flimsy piece of garbage when you put it on your like the V-type goggles (if you've ever used V-types you know what I'm talking about). This mask also NEVER FOGS. I've tried to make it fog and it doesn't. I wore this in 90 degree weather and intentionally blew on it and it won't fog. It's also really comfortable. If you wear it long enough you forget you're wearing a mask. It also looks really good. It makes you look like a veteran and people think you really know paintball when you have it on. The foam on it is awesome. It has a kind of rubbery foam. It really keeps the sweat out of your lens and doesn't chip away after long use. The lens is also easy to change. All you have to do is flip up a switch on each side and the lens pops right out. The only thing that bothered me is that there is no chin strap. It's really not a negative its more of a personal preference.
If you're just starting paintball I strongly recommend it. If you've been playing for 10 years and are in tournaments and are looking for a cheap reliable mask pick it up. This mask can easily stand up to any higher end mask.
