It does what it is supposed to, protect your head.
You will need to buy a thermal lense.
Great beginner mask. It is cheap and has great protection. Make sure you buy a thermal lense. The lenses are a pain to change. Newer masks have quick change lenses. Anyone elses review about the soft rubber not protecting well, has never gotten shot there. I have had many shots in the rubber "skirt" and have yet to have been hurt by the skirt or the paintball.
Like I said great beginner mask if you get a thermal lense. I would probably buy a newer mask like a VForce for the updated features.
This is an ugly, crazyly down graded flex7 with no spectra lense.
A-5 with cyclone feeder upgrade, evil spyder 2 A-5 barrel adaptor, Proteam intruder expasion chamber, double trigger, JAVA 12 oz. tank, and freak junior w/ xtra inserts.
Covers everything. Sort of a flex 7 bottom half. Cheap.
Its long, ugly, and doesn't have a spectra lense.
It covers up everything from your forhead to your neck. But this also makes it by far the uglyest mask i've ever seen. Its too tall, tight on your face, and the retarded looking non spectra lense makes you look like a noob. The lense is too small, and pretty hard to see out of. It does still cover all of your face and neck. Maybe if you want a lot of protection this would be good, but other than that, this mask is pretty crap.
You can get this thing for dirt cheap... get it if your a noob. Other than that, by a flex 7 or protius.
brass eagle xact mask, brass eagle xterminator, jt spectra 260
viewloader genesis surge df, smart parts freak jr barrel, pure energy 68ci, x-board revvy and a custom drop forward
basically the exact same as the brass eagle xterminator, except smaller
comes in olive and black
good price for a high quality mask
comes with a visor to keep the sun out of your eyes
very comfortable under extreme heat and cold
doesn't come with a tinted lense
nothing else is really the matter. the lense actually isn't a bad, i just think that all masks should come with a tinted lense.
this is a great mask, it is lightweight, fits great and is very comfortable. just b/c it doesn't have a big brand name like dye, it doesn't mean that it isn't good. the price is very reasonable and it is very durable. it's pretty easy to clean and is very easy to disassemble.
buy this mask, especially if you are new to the sport or you don't have a lot of money to spend. they are selling for around $20 US on most online internet stores. if you want it cheaper than that, try ebay.
Spyder Shutter /w 12 volt X board revvy, 14 inch Dye Xcel Barrel, and 47/3000 ACI Bulldog Nitrogen Tank
Damn nice mask fairly comfortable and decent protection. Have used the same mask for 4 years bought it and used it every single time I went to play.
Needs a Thermal Lens nothing is worse than having your mask fog up..Also The clips that pull down on the lens tend to pressure crack the len's if you are one of those players who really move around. And Im not sure if its the mask design or if its just crappy luck but I've gone through 4 len's they keep cracking right in half, and yeah we do chrony our guns =P
A lot cheaper now than what it was when I bought it a very nice mask that will last you for quite a while. Just now after all this time mine is getting crappy the mask is actually starting to lose its shape heheh. Plus some of the new maks are more comfortable and have a wider field of vision. But I am very happy with the Xfire.
Old ghetto automag classic, benchmark frame, stickies, PMI drop forward, Kapp foregrip and extender, ricochet AK loader, russian made Kobra point sight on custom sight rail, 68 cu HPA, velocity adjuster, and variety of barrels.
Doesn't fog up easily (with thermal lens, an absolute necessity here in the south)
Roomy, great for adults, big heads, and guys with glasses (me on all 3 counts)
Comfortable to wear all day long
Good protection, pretty stiff, holds its shape well,
Rugged and no-nonsense
The foam lasts forever
It's cheap, now (but not when I bought mine)
Rubber lower half is very sturdy
Comes with a removable visor
Nice wide strap, stays in place on head
It's a big and ugly
Like most JT masks, it is difficult to remove lens for cleaning
Field of vision is not a great as many newer masks (but still greater than that of my glasses!)
It's a really old design (early 90's), so you look 'dated'
Much too big for small kids/teens
Balls break on the rubber, they don't bounce off
This is a pretty old design now, and was the forefather of the JT Spectra line of masks. Even so, it's rugged, well made, and was one of the better masks around a few years ago, which is one reason it's still on the market, and it shares many traits with it's later JT cousins. For people with large heads (adults) and/or those who wear glasses, it's one of the better masks around, even today, and is nearly impossible to fog. At $30 or so, with thermal lenses, it's also a great deal, especially compared to many of the cruddy masks around (BE, for instance). I've definitely gotten my money's worth out of mine, and I've worn it for more than 4 years (having just recently replaced it with the V-force morph).
-It's camoflauge a little bit
-It's pretty comfortable
Where to start...
-Having a mask that fogs up 5 minutes into a game can ruin a whole day of paintball. This is what you'll get with this mask. IT FOGS EVERY 5 MINUTES. So annoying...
-Hard to clean. The front lenses are very hard to take off.
-Venalation is bad! You'll sweat like a pig in this thing.
-After awhile, the foam padding starts to rip.
I got this mask in the package with my gun. I guess it's good for the price but, actually, no it isn't. Even if the mask is cheap, fogged up lenses can ruin a day of paintball so spend the extra 20 bucks and get a good thermal one. I've tried anti-fog and that only last a little while.
