Unregistered User Monday, May 13th, 2002
Period of
Product Use:
1 year
More than 5 years
Products Used:
Vent Predator; JT masks
Marker Setup: Tippmann 98 with Full Boar Rear Cocking and Dye Boomstick barrel
Strengths: Great field of view
No fog on the lens
Not a big dollar expenditure
Lenses are VERY THICK - much thicker than "flat" lenses on competing products
Looks cool, sort of. If you want a distinctive "motorcycle helmet" look, this is the mask for you.
Lenses are 15 bucks
Weaknesses: No neck protection - I bought some rubber stair riser protector material, cut it down, laced it onto the mask, people can't even tell I put it on.
Lenses are very stiff, which means they crack, especially from the tabs on the outside.
Bad rep of BE - everything else they sell is not much good
"Big head" syndrome... you may get teased
Hard lens and face mask means lots of breaks on the mask - oh well but no pain
Lens scratches easily, but Lexan always scratches easily. The "bug" shape of the lens makes it more likely to get a scratch because it sticks out.
Glare onthe round lens is pretty bad, but you can wear sunglasses underneath... how cool is that?
Conclusion: A great mask overall. Not quite as comfy as my beloved old Vents Predator, but what a view! To those who say it breaks or scratches easily, I say: take care of your mask, dufus! You need a goggle bag or box, and you need to remove all paint from the lens as soon as you get off the field. Never push your head through scratchy branches, and you'll be all right. Possibly the only great thing Brass Eagle has ever made.
