I'd go for the switch. But personally, get the Axis, they look cooler and they are lighter.

I would match all of your gear and go with an Axis or Switch FS. There's nothing wrong with Proto masks these days. They just don't have the stupid agg factor.

since when did paintball become some fashion statement? who cares if your equipment matches or not... only materialistic, immature noobs would give a crap about such a menial thing as brand matching. . . (unless of course you're sponsored and are are bound to wear a certain type of gear). But judging by your question I'm guessing that's not the case. Go with the one that YOU like better. All masks are going to protect your face/eyes. But you need to go to your pro shop, try on a few, see what is more comfortable to you. Comfortable foam is a must to me. Which is why I use a proflex. JT's foam has not been matched by anyone and the only other mask to even come close to it is the Invision i3. So the choice is up to you... and screw what anyone else thinks about your gear. Including me.
