Strengths: A lot is good about this mask. The flexibility of the entire mask makes it great, especially for balls that bounce. I was running, and my opponett nailed me in the side of the head, right in the lower flexible part. I thought I was out, and started wiping my hand on the side of the mask to make sure I could feel the paint. Well I couldn't so I called for a paint check, I was clean!! So, balls really do bounce off this bad boy. As in all thermal masks, the no fog is great, and this one works just fine. The visor reduces glare, so that helps in blending in with the rest of the woods (if you play woods). I've taken 3 shots in the stock lens, and it still is in good condition. I really feel I should replace the lens though, because I don't want it to give on a shot, and break through. Maybe I just worry too much...
Weaknesses: Uhh...I would say the MSRP Price. I found mine online for sale at about $55. If you can find it online for cheaper, then I would say get this mask. But the Spectra is a good alternative, if you can't afford it. The differnce is that the Spectra has a hard, plastic lower half of the mask, while the Flex-7 has a rubber (I think) bottom. One thing I noticed while playing my first game with this mask (it was a long one, and I sprinted a lot), was that the mask did fog a little. I tightened it (a little struggle with that...) and found the problem disapperaed. Maybe it's just because the games are shorter and not so hard, but it doesn't fog anymore.
Conclusion: I would reccommend this mask to everyone. If you can afford it, get it. This is a high quality mask, I think the only downside of it, is the price. That's why I'm gonna give it a 9. If you are starting out in paintball, your most important purcahse is your mask. It doesn't matter how nice your gun is, how long your barrel is, how cool you look. If you can't see where you are going/shooting, nothin else matters.
