fallout11 Friday, December 27th, 2002
Period of
Product Use:
4 years
Paintball
Experience:
More than 5 years
Similar
Products Used:
Other old JT masks,
V-force Morph
Marker Setup: Old ghetto automag classic, benchmark frame, stickies, PMI drop forward, Kapp foregrip and extender, ricochet AK loader, russian made Kobra point sight on custom sight rail, 68 cu HPA, velocity adjuster, and variety of barrels.
Strengths: Doesn't fog up easily (with thermal lens, an absolute necessity here in the south)
Roomy, great for adults, big heads, and guys with glasses (me on all 3 counts)
Comfortable to wear all day long
Good protection, pretty stiff, holds its shape well,
Rugged and no-nonsense
The foam lasts forever
It's cheap, now (but not when I bought mine)
Rubber lower half is very sturdy
Comes with a removable visor
Nice wide strap, stays in place on head
Weaknesses: It's a big and ugly
Like most JT masks, it is difficult to remove lens for cleaning
Field of vision is not a great as many newer masks (but still greater than that of my glasses!)
It's a really old design (early 90's), so you look 'dated'
Not flashy
Much too big for small kids/teens
Balls break on the rubber, they don't bounce off
Conclusion: This is a pretty old design now, and was the forefather of the JT Spectra line of masks. Even so, it's rugged, well made, and was one of the better masks around a few years ago, which is one reason it's still on the market, and it shares many traits with it's later JT cousins. For people with large heads (adults) and/or those who wear glasses, it's one of the better masks around, even today, and is nearly impossible to fog. At $30 or so, with thermal lenses, it's also a great deal, especially compared to many of the cruddy masks around (BE, for instance). I've definitely gotten my money's worth out of mine, and I've worn it for more than 4 years (having just recently replaced it with the V-force morph).
