Products Used:
Basic JT masks, other bargain BE masks, and Raven Nuvis system. Many other masks out there uncomfortable or too small, particularly with someone wearing glasses. The Raven system is nice, but somewhat expensive.
Marker Setup: Several different markers for both rec and speedball play.
Strengths: The 280 degree vision is huge, and allows you to look wihtou moving your head. There are multiple after market lenses including smoke and yellow tints. Poeple that wear glasses will enjoy the room inside the mask, and at one time very few other masks out there allowed that kind of room. The price used to also be very good for the market, but other brands are very similar in some cases now.
Weaknesses: It's kind of bubbly and bothers some people who are used to lower profile masks. It carries the BE name, which automatically turns a lot of status seeking people off. At one point there was an issue with lenses cracking from multiple hits, but BE offered free replacement lenses and the problem has been corrected. While my lens didn't fog, my glasses underneath often did if air got trapped on cold winter days. The anti-fog coating tends to peel off after repeated cleaning, and the method of removing the lens is a pain in the you- know -what without a tool of some kind. Multiple removals of the lens cracekd one of my tabs, but it still works just fine.
Conclusion: At the time of purchase this was a good fit for me considering I was new to playing, wore glasses, and had a limited budget for playing. Over time the market has seen more reasonably priced masks that allow players a variety of choices in terms of size and style. More popular brands have made their name by producing quality masks over time and if I had to buy one today I would look elsewhere besides BE.
