More than 5 years
Products Used:
All other JT masks, Scott's, PMI's
Marker Setup: 68 Automag Classic, 12v Rev, J&J 12" ceramic, chrome Intelliframe, chrome Taso on/off drop, WGP foregrip Reg, Phase 2 Venturi Bolt, Rear Velocity, Pure Energy 68-3k nitro.
Strengths: It offers the same protection of any other spectra mask. Structurally speaking. If you are into the flashy colors, you'll like it. The clear panels are actually clear as opposed to translucent like everyone else's "clear" masks. Very Low profile.
Weaknesses: First off, looks are an issue. If you are a bigger player than "Shorty" from Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom", you are going to look like a GOON. Let's talk coverage. The chin exposure for larger players is a joke. JT could have put a little more down there without sacrificing any low profile attributes. Don't tell me to "suck it up" either. I could care less about getting hit in the chin, if I didn't have to clean the entire mask out afterward. It's not about being a pantywaist anymore, it's about the mask being a pain in the butt. If you have a large melon, don't expect to feel very ventilated. Ever seen the Alien movie? Yeah, now you know what I'm talking about. The visor is all but useless. This mask screams "GIMMICK" and is no better by any means than any other spectra mask. Ear dials? Give me a break.
Conclusion: I work in a paintball proshop, and have more than five years in the sport. I have not seen a more blatant gimmick since the Ram Rod barrel. Get the Flex-7. Proteus isn't worth the extra $40 by any means.
