Price vs. performance
Hard to fog
Softer guards (more pain)
Some paint seepage
This is my mask which I currently use. I have a larger head that most of my friends and I've tried thier masks for a bit, but none has the comfort level of the Morph. The soft panels and front guard are good for deflecting/bouncing angled shots (more so than a rigid one) and the fit up with my glasses make this my mask of choice. If you asking what does he mean about a wider face and glasses fit, I have 52-22 frames and those with glasses know what I mean. If you have a narrower face I'd recommend the Shield. The only reasons I chose this over a Proteus II was 1) Price, and 2) Larger Profile.
The Proteus II fits just as well as the Morph for comfort , but the lower profile exposed my lower jaw line. I've been hit in the chin by paintballs while talking with the Morph and can only imagine how much worse the Proteus could have been. Another reason I bought the Morph is that it can mount the chin strap and neck guards of the V-Force Shield. I not that I say it is hard to fog. Many masks claim to be fog free, blah blah. The Morph has better anti fog than most I've used/seen, but I've fogged it slightly on my times out near the end of a full 7-8 hour day of play, but I'd prolly fog a Proteus w/fan too after that time. And of course the superb field of view has to mentioned. After a full day of taking several shots to the head I find a small bit of paint may seep around the lens edges but never has this been anything but minimal.
A 10 has to basically make me drool over the product, but this mask does what it is supposed to very very well. The cost and optional accessories combined with the performancemake this mask a great buy for anyone. Just remember to try on the masks before you buy to test the feel and fit.
9 out of 10
