This is the new VForce mask. It comes in Black, Green, Yellow, Orange, White, Blue and Red. Unlike most masks the nose area is made out of pliable rubber(the black section or colored section). As with most of the VForce mask, the Profiler offers a very wide range of vision without being to bulky. It infact hugs tightly to almost any size head, thus the name Profiler. It most definatly is the "World's Fastest Mask". The ease of removing the lens is incredible, you could possibly remove it in around 5 seconds if you were in a rush to clean the lens between games efficiently. VForce is a trusted name in paintball for its optical superiority and field of vision.

The VForce Profiler Mask is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used. Check out the Places to Buy links below for places to purchase it new.
I've used a lot of different masks over the years, mostly in the JT and Scott lines. First mask I owned was a JT Whippersnapper. None compare to this product.

Price may be out of range for some players
I've been playing for quite awhile now - my first mask was a JT whippersnapper, and those of us that remember those know how much mask technology has changed since then. So when it came time for me to upgrade my mask, I went looking for what was considered to be one of the better ones out there (that way, I wouldn't have to upgrade for a few years - not all of us have the money to keep buying the newest items year after year.) For me, it came down to this and the Dye Invision, and after talking to my younger brother a bit I decided to pick up this mask instead.
I couldn't be more pleased with it. The Vforce Profiler has an excellent profile (hugging my face tightly), and it's soft-body construction is capable of deflecting hits. The lens provides an excellent unobstructed field-of-vision, is easy to remove for cleaning, and is extremely difficult to fog over (I was playing in a light rain, and where other people couldn't see due to their lenses fogging over I was just fine, even while wearing eyeglasses.
About the only thing this mask has against it is it's price, and I feel even that isn't too much to pay for what you're getting here.
Final recommendation: this mask is definitely worth the money you put into it.

DOES NOT FOG!!
DOES NOT FOG!!!
Foam not removable
Be prepared to eat paint
Big foreheads/chin may be exposed
First time out with the mask I got gogged. 3rd run of the day and I ate paint, no fat lip tho. 4th I was hit up high but was deflected by the Visor, nice!!
Visors are easy to install, even a caveman can do it. Same for removing the Lense, you just have to read instructions or watch a youtube video.
I didn't test to see how easy/hard it was to hear my voice with the mask on, thats what signals are used for.
Playing in 85+ degree weather, the mask did not fog up.
*UPDATE* Played on a rain day, the mask did not fog up. ~72 degrees out
I'll update again if I get to play on a cold or snow day.
I took care of my paint-eating habit by covering my face with a bandanna.
To clean, I just removed the lense (easy as hell) and sprayed the mask with a hose. The only problem and downside to the mask is that the foam doesn't come off so I try my best not to get it dirty or wet, just pat dry and you're finished. I wish V-Force made it possible to replace the foam and remove it while you clean. This feature is available in their new Grillz mask but it's ugly as hell.
I went with this mask because of the style, easy to clean, and fact that it DOES NOT FOG up at all. You can take care of the weaknesses by wearing a bandanna and hat but you have to deal with aging foam.
Rate is a 9 since the Foam is not removable/replaceable.

Comfort with prescription glasses!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Field of vision
They do fog a little
The profiler mask is great. The single biggest reason i say that is for the comfort it gives you while wearing glasses. All the other masks i have used, i've had to cut or somehow modify so i could wear my glasses. Besides that the mask has great FOV and the quick change lense system is great for cleaning the lense in between games. The anti-fog is great but i personally have installed a fan system to make sure my day isn't spent wiping my lense all the time.
Like i said, if you wear glasses, this is a very comfortable mask. i'll give this mask a 9 just for that, but with the FOV and ease of lense change it really earns the 9!!!

Looks so cool, Nice vision range, very bounce prone, more in body.
These goggles were my cristmas money. But they were worth it. They look cool and they feel so comfy except the very back near the ears, but a beanie will take car of that. Of coure no body likes the pricing, but hey they are worth it. The lens were hard to get out at first because i didnt know they literally meant use you thumbnail. They dont fog and i can talk really nice with them on. There is no muffling whatsoever. They are designed for bounce and it works. THey are hard enought for protection, bbut soft enough for bounce.

Feels like there is comfortable distance between eyes and the lens.
Hard to put back on the lens without getting finger prints on it.
Well I thought since I was going to be a hard core baller, I might as well get a sweet mask. So I tryed on the Profiler first, and never tried another. Once I heard the features like the anti-fog and the super easy, quick cleaning, I was sold. It is suck a great mask, it was well worth every one of the $95 bucks (canadian) I paid for it.
I can even wear my aviators underneath it, it's so roomy!
Truly amazing mask, a must have.

Fits very well
None very close to perfect.
Ive currently owned my profiler for 3 years and i have to say im very pleases with it i had some fogging in very cold weather(and dont forget to add the snow). it works great in the summer 99% of the time theres no fogging. The bounce factor that works great ive had a few bounces in my time, and voice its so unrestricted works great(especailly for playing all the positions).
Over all this is a very very good product it blows just about anything out of the water i reccomend this to just about anyone or everyone. so aka get it!

Price(If you wanna complain bout price), Notthing else
This mask is great, I had used invisions before and so far i like the profiler more, It is costly but still a great mask even with the price. Also It keeps it at a nice fit, also their is a good color selection. The bounce on the front is really nice and also the lens removal and the visors were nice. I can hear and the lens doesnt fog up.
For most people i would say that you should buy the mask. Since masks are one of the most important things if you dont have the cash right away save up for it. Also it works great and better then any other mask in my opinion. It also makes sock hats look good.

The looks, very comfortable, soft rubber in some places to promote bounces
For some players the price and no neck protection
I love this mask!!!! I played with it today for the first time today and didn't take any hits so i don't know about the bounce factor, but this mask rocks. It never fogged (i live in hot and humid south louisiana 70* december day). It's well ventilated, lightweight, awesome field of vision. I thought it didnt get any better than my Proteus, but i was wrong.
I say if $$$ is not a factor for you and you are considering buying this mask...... go for it......you wont regret it.
