I borrowed my friends Flex 7 because my nvader got screwed up for some reason (LONG story) Anyway at the field this baby was AWESOME. IT was really confortable and didnt fog up during the whole game. It mixed in with the woods great.
I have had this mask ever since I started playing and it still kicks ass. Over 5 years of wear and tear and it is still going strong.
-from a long standing company
-lots of lens options
-lots of switchable set-ups ear plates, face plates, cross-wind fan, straps,etc.
-excellent feild of vision
-not heavy or cumbersome
-can be a pain to clean paint and stuff out of the little grooves
-can be a pain in the fingers switching lenses till you get used to how to do it right
Come on, the Flex 7 and its close cousin the Spectra have been around since the beginning. This is an awesome mask and will do what it needs to do. 5 years of hardcore play hasn't stopped mine yet.
Red Sypder Shutter with PMI 6-stage expansion chamber and equations designs multi. switch barrel
1. Almost never fogs
2. lots of color choices and good looking choices too
3. lots of venting
4. paintballs whipe real easy off of goggles
5. lots of cushion
6. keeps you warm and keeps out the rain
7. easily tightened and loosend
8. good thick shell and has a comfortable distance from your face
9. real good ear protection
1. fogs up every once and a while but the fog is gone just as quick as it came usually
2. kind of heavy and all the weight sits on your nose, but if you tighten it up and keep the band low it will keep the weight on the bridge of your nose
3. if you get shot in the mask most of the paint will spray inside because of all of the vents, but it's all washable so it dosen't matter.
4. not very much neck protection
This is an extremely good mask for the money. I know it says it is $96 in the front but I have never seen it anywhere for that much. I bought mine at a shop in town for $56 and usually they're a little expensive. By my opinion if you intend to enjoy paintballing you must have a good mask, all the hassles just aren't worth saving the money, and I have to pay for everything with my own money so i know what its like to have a product now or no product for a few months. Just get a good mask even if you only go once a year.
Definitely get bounces off the mask..visor and face part. Really liked the wide field of vision. I have a vortex fan and had 100%% ZERO fogging even though I wear glasses. My JT X-Fire had Thermal lens also had fan but I would still get a small amount of fogging.. Plus improved field if vision. Fits around eyes much better as once I had a paintball hit in my mouth with the X-Fires and got a small amount of spray into the eye area. Feel much safer withe the Spectra goggles.
Not cheap. Others mention the difficulty in getting goggles out and putting in fan. Doesn't bother me as it just means that the mask will not come apart when you are banging around on the field.
I really like this mask and would reccommend to anyone. Visor blocked the sun, great vision plus paint bounces off the mask. Buy it and you will be happy. It imay not be cheap but I would not mess around with my eyes after getting spayed from a mouth hit on the mask of the X-Fires. Comfortable, snug fit around eyes.
This mask is awesome. It looks cool, it's comfortable, and it has never fogged on me. I looked at every other mask out there, including the JT Proteus, Dye Invision, and V-Force Morph, and I chose the Flex-7. I have since tried out both the Proteus and Morph, and I'm still happy that I chose Flexies.
Changing out the lens absolutely SUCKS!!!! I thought that everyone who complained about this must just be wussies, but unfortunately, they were right. I love this mask, but I can't write enough about how much I hate taking out and/or putting in the lens.
I also think that the visor becomes misshapen too easily, but that's a pretty minor thing.
Don't get this mask if you want to change lenses. If you want different lenses, buy different masks (that's what I did!).
The foam on the goggles is like the softest pillow you ever felt. I got these things today and right now I am walking around the house with these things on.It has great protection all around but misses a little around the chin and neck area, but hey thats why they have neck protectors! Plus it has the flexy bottom part that sort of creates bounces.
( Don't pay attention to this part) It's a little bit wide but thats nothing to complain about. I wish that it had a built in neck protector like the V-Force but then again thats why they have neck protectors.
The greatest part is the fit of the mask itself. I've got a pretty good sized head, nothing like Fred Flintstone or anything, but.......... anyhow, it does fit very nicely. Snug around the eyes and the rubber coating on the headband helps it stay in place. The lens is vertually imposible to fog up. Even when you breathe directly on the lens, the moisture goes away in tenths of a second. Really a great product, I would recommend it to anyone.
Nothing at all. I picked mine up for $40 and it was money very well spent
Get this mask. It's lightweight, comfortable, affordable, durable, looks nice and fits very well.
Very comfy foam. The sticky glue on the strap really keeps it on small or large heads. Looks very cool, especially with the soft ear foam.
The foam wears out if you really rub it and wash it too much, but only after a year or more... it then leaves black rings around your eyes. The lenses are not that hard to take off, if you follow the directions and you see someone do it.
Get this mask... it is very nice and around this time look around for a cheap one around 40$
