My X-fire lens broke a couple weeks after first getting it so I decided that I would not waste any more money on that mask and so I borrowed my friends Spectra. I must say, it's an excellent mask. The Thermal lens works great and the visor is perfect. My x-fire had some problem with the padding or the strap or something. But it never fit on there correctly. This mask has a much better fit and doesn't squeeze my head the way a X-fire did.
Almost a perfect mask. I've tested and used better but this mask is definatly in the top 4 masks. Would recomend this to anyone who needs a new mask or wants something that's functional and comfortable.
This mask never fogs up on me unless it's raining when we play. Now we don't play in the rain because your gun isn't accurate, your masks will fog up.It's no fun. This mask is my favorite mask besides the Proteus and Scott Strike. It's only fogged up once....when it was raining. It protects your face really well. I've took many hits all over my mask and it's yet to crack anywhere. This is one great mask.
The perfect mask for anybody. Kinda cheap and very durable. Also, JT made it....their masks are always good.
Good Sight Line
Lense is really hard to take off when cleaning
This is a great mask to get for beginners up to tourney players. The thermal thing will allow rec ballers who play in long games to not worry. Tourney players may want to get the Flex 7 or Proteus, but if your just starting off in the tourney play and you have this mask dont worry about upgrading right away. Well worth your money. But when I am trying to clean the mask I have a really hard time with trying to clean the lense. Its not a big problem though.
GO buy this mask if your considering it. GO buy this mask if your a beginner in the sport. Go buy this mask if you got a big game to play. Go buy this mask if you like JT USA. GO BUY THIS MASK!
Overall a good mask. I got them as my first mask and have not had any problems with them so far.
They don't fog too much, but fog more than vforce systems do. They are cheap though.
I'm on my 3rd set of lenses, and replacement lenses are inexpensive.
The lenses are hard to take out for cleaning and replacement, you will hurt your fingers, but other than that, a nice goggle system.
good goggle system, pretty cheap usually around $35-$40, no problems yet ;)

I bought this with great expectations and was immediately disappointed. It looks great and the olive matches my camo. It is lightweight and comfortable and almost completely useless for me due to the fogging.
The lens is difficult to change.
It fogged on the first day and on every other day I used it. I solved the problem by installing a jt fan. However, even then I had to soup up the fan to accept 2 AA batteries. The souped up fan barely keeps the fog off and is loud.
I wear glasses and they hit the lens. I broke a pair of glasses.
It has a low profile, but does not provide as much protection as other masks.
Looks good but fogs, doesn’t cover your face as much as other masks, doesn't work well with glasses. Lens is hard to change. The lens is not as clear as V-Force systems. I recommend a v-force morph or v-force shield.
I love my Spectra mask. The softears make it almost natural. The only complaint I have is the gap between the visor and the mask there is no head protection. Hurts like hell when a ball finds the sweet spot. Wouldl ike to get mirrored lenses, Thermal System works good. Solid Mask
Solid Mask for the money. Softears make them very comfortable.
Hard, tough, doesn't fog at all, well only in rain. Great mask.
Fogs in rain.
This mask is great for beginners or pros. Never fogs, unless lens is wet. DO NOT use fog resistant cleaner on a fog-proof mask. This mask fits anybody. I never have any problems out of this mask. This mask has a hard body. I like flimsy bodies but this suits me. Try this mask out. You won't regret it.
BUY THIS FREAK'N MASK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BUY IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU WON'T BE SORRY!!!!!!!!!!!
Full face protection
Able to breath when wearing
I can't really think of any
I've used this mask for over 2 years and I've never had a problem with it. The difference between a JT mask and one made by say, Brass Eagle, is day and night. It's very comfortable, sits off of your ear so your hearing is barely obstructed, easy to see out of, and with a thermal lens it rarely fogs up even in the summer heat.
I would recommend this product to anyone in need of a good mask. Although, why do I have to type more words when my first sentence covered the point exceptionally well.
Durable, Nice Foam on goggles, comfortable, won't fog with thermal lens, pretty cheap.
Hard plastic means no bounces, hard to remove the lens... I think that's it...
I love this mask! I got it about a year ago to replace my old PMI mask that came with my 1st marker (Piranha). Huge difference! The foam on it doesn't make your face feel funny after a few hours, the thermal lens keeps the fog down, the whole thing is so comfortable. It also has this sticky gel stuff on the back strap to keep it from moving around. My only complaint is that paint won't bounce off the hard lower mask, they'll break and spray paint in your mouth. I want to upgrade mine with a Flex-7 lower mask, then it'll be perfect for me. Plus, I bought mine for about $30, so anyone can afford one.
The only bad thing on this mask is it sucks to take out the lens, but it's the same on all other masks anyway and I think that's better than having my lens fall during play.
This mask is great. It has everything someone looks for in a mask, and it's cheap. The most important piece of equipment in paintball is a good mask, so if you're getting into the game, buy this mask!

Before I got this mask, I had a BE delux that came with my first gun, a tiger shark. Goodness, that was one AWEFUL mask. truly awefule.
Spyder 2000 200 rd. hopper 2 12 oz Co2 tanks AN ELBOW-plastic,durable,strong,holds my hopper(lol) bottom line. CP barrel
No fog doesnt hurt to get hit in face easy cleaning very protective NO FOG!!!!
On mine the nub that holds the visor to the top of the mask broke.
Well well well
I was using my BE delux, and i decided i needed an upgrade. Boy did I ever. This mask is awesome. its inexpensive, non fogging, and very comftrobal. My one problem, when the mask came, the visor and the mask were unconnected. You had to do it yourself. I stupidly broke of the nub in the front so it doesnt work 100%. but that is a very very very very minor thing. Oh, make sure you head is wide enough, cuz the first time I used it, my head was a little too thin, and it fogged a bit. But we just played for the first time this year, absolutly no problem whatsoever. It also fits with glasses, important because I have them.
For the price and quality, none match. buy please. it will serve you well.
