Products Used:
Assorted JT masks
Marker Setup: 2k3 Autococker, 12v Rev, 14" Dye Ultralite, and powered by a 68ci MaxFlo
Strengths: It's light, tight, small, and flexible. It's well-molded and in no way fragile. Great range of vision and clarity. No fogging, nomatter how out of shape you are. Balls literally bounce right off of it (except when they pop on the lens, of course). Relatively uncommon and looks really good. Overall coverage is fine, and it protects well (impact shock is spread fairly evenly). Great ventilation. Extraordinarily comfortable; almost feels like there's nothing there!
Weaknesses: It really is kind of a pain to clean, unless you take the lens off. If you don't, you'll wreak havoc on the thermal lens. Also, make sure to take a moment between games to wipe the paint off the lens thoroughly. Otherwise, it'll actually start to mess up the outside coating (it's wierd.) The stock lens isn't as nice in quality construction as the replacement lenses. Glasses fit under the mask, but only just barely, and will put slight pressure on the bridge of the nose (no big deal, but I've worn masks in which this doesn't happen at all). If you want neck protection, get a neck protector.
Conclusion: It's an inexpensive mask, but it's easily one of the best I've worn. It hugs the face, provides a low profile, and protects relatively well. I highly recommend getting a replacement lens right off the bat; ideally a tinted one. Visors inherently cut down visibility, and this mask has really superior field of vision. The tinted lens will add immeasurable utility, and besides, it'll look even better.

It's a really great mask, and it's disposably inexpensive. I'd recommend it over any mask on the market, to literally anybody. Now if somebody would just invent a little LCD that sits inside the lens and tells me stuff...
