I got my mask from actionvilllage for only $40. It is awsome. I've played with it 8 times already and I haven't fogged. It is supper flexable and looks awsome. Although it hasn't happened to me I heard you can easily catch a ball in the lip. I still love my mask anyway. Get Olive drap just incase you play an occasional woodsball game instead of speedball and airball.

Awesome mask. Flex mouth makes balls just deflect off. Would say that 90 percent of shots to flexible part have bounced. Fits very well. Has never fogged on me. Can put on of those lil fans in it. I think it looks cool. Comes in madd colors. The only bad thing about it is that it is kinda hard to take apart to put new lens in
Phantom - RF, undercocking, bottomline.
TASO Sniper II - WWA pump kit, Edge barrel kit, humpback slider.
2k3 Black Magic - Axis hinge, ergo reg, bomb, tickler, ANS ram, CCM bolt + feedneck.
Cheap and effective. No fog, excellent coverage and comfort.
This is the best mask available at this price, hands down. A Flex-7 with a thermal lense outperforms anything in its price range. I'm serious, nothing even comes close. The only difference between the Flex-7 and the more expensive Pro-Flex is the lack of soft foam ears. I can't say that I have much faith in those, as just recently a guy at a field nearby had his eardrum blown out when he bunkered someone. Hard ears work great for me.
The most important part of a mask is the lense. If you can't see, at all times, despite whatever inclement weather, the mask has failed you. The Flex-7's thermal Spectra lense NEVER fogs. V-force lenses only have a anti-fog coating that eventually rubs off during cleaning. The Spectra lens uses a physical design to stop fog. Two seperate panes of plastic; one strong outer layer and a thinner inner layer are divided at the edges by foam. Fog is most often caused because of a difference in temperature between the inside of the mask lens and the outside. The foam in the Flex-7 evenly manages temperature, so that there is a buffer between the inside and outside. As for durability, Spectra lenses have at least five times the lifespan of the V-force lenses that I've seen.
The foam on newer 'Flexes is very thick and very comfortable. It also comes with a chin strap, which I never really used. Nice touch, though, if you're worried about your mask coming off. The lower soft portion of the mask is actually quite effective at producing bounces at medium ranges. Although it can come back and slap you when you are hit in the face, I have never actually received a welt because of it.
If you need a mask for life, and don't want to break the bank, this is the one. I won't wear anything else.

Proto Switch FS...I don't like Proto goggles because of these stupid things.

I had a pair of Proto Switch FS goggles that would fog...all the time...and so I bought these things after reding a bunch of reviews on this site.
They are great goggles. They are extremely light weight compared to a lot of other goggles out there. The lens is very easy to care for. You don't have to worry about scratching the inside. I have had absolutely zero problems with fogging since I bought them.
If you want Pro Flexes but also don't like getting hit in the ears with paintballs, buy these goggles.
This is a good mask. You can find them all over at very inexpensive prices. You will like them a lot if you get them.

Can flex back and take impact to mouth
When I got this mask I was so happy. I ordered it online and was hoping it would fit good having never tried it on before. The mask is comfortable on me and a few of my friends tried it and now own them ( one has a very large head ). The field of vision is a huge plus. I have been out on some of the most humid days and never had it completely fog to where I couldn't see. But compare that to most and you will not see better. The flexable bottom is a feature i really like. Although it will flex back if shot right and you will take the impact to the mouth. Not really that bad unless someone just shot you in full auto. The flex also gives you a bounce factor.
I love this mask. This will probley be it for me only replacement lenes from here on out.
I have 2 Rodeos 1 for me, 1 for my wife. Both have....

Lens is hard to fog up
Face mask is flexable
Foam around goggle is comming apart
(just due to wear and tear tho)
I've used these goggles every time I've played since I got them. There the best goggle/mask system I've tried. The lens is hard to fog up but I can get it to fog once in awhile.(only when I Rambo from one side of a huge woods ball field to the other) My beavertail on my gun scratched my lens alittle. But that's not the manufactures fault, its mine the lens isnt impervious to sharp aluminum ( stupid beavertail). My foam is coming apart around the goggle but that's just cause my mask is old. I paid like 70bucks for mine which I think was a good buy for me.
If your tired of playing with crappy goggles that fog up alot, buy the flex-7. Its a good goggle system that wont let you down! The flexable mask is awsome for tucking!
Tippmann 98 custom w/ 16 inch smart parts barrel for wood games.
I got 2 lenses with I purchased mine
Foam comes off ear pieces
Lenses are hard to take out/in
I like the style, and it seems easy to find replacement lenses online, or in paintball stores.
What I don't like is how hard it is to take off/put in the lenses. I almost break a sweat trying to get them back together; with out breaking something.
When you take a paintball to the goggles you have to take the lens out and that to me would be the reason I would never purchase anymore lenses for mine. I am now looking for a goggle system with a quick release lens, to me that should be a deciding factor in a goggle choice.
anti-fog lenses are great
reflecting lenses look awesome
but when it comes to cleaning, taking it apart and putting it together it is a pain, this is the only reason I am looking for a new goggle system. I am going to give it a 7 because it still is a good goggle.
Most compfy mask ever.
You can get tinted/reflective lenses.
Honestly, there arent any serious flaws with this mask.
Firstly, in six months of using all kinds of different Flex 7's, none of them fog. I use a blue-tinted lense one to ref with, my eyes cannot be seen, which gives me an advantage over the players. Today i used a standard olivedrab green colored one, and it worked just as good. They simply dont fog, period. I have tried to get mine to fog by breathing on the inside, it just wont give :] they do everything masks are supposed to do, and very compforably, it's loosely compfy, yet still fit and secure. It's an excellent mask; worth every penny.
Great product from JT, i was and still am impressed. I didnt know masks could be this compfy.
Diablo Mongoose (I use the LCD version that puts out 20 a sec, not the wimpy LED one that does 13 a sec)
20 ounce CO2 tank
EGG hopper with a Z-board
14 inch J&J Full Tilt Ceramic barrel
It's made by JT and balls bounce off the lower mask.
I can't find any and that counts as a problem.
I started out useing a Brass Eagle mask (Biggest mistake of my life) and got ticked off at it because it fogged so much I ran into the same tree branch twice within 45 seconds. After I got ticked off at that mask, I bought this one. It's the third best paintball related choice in my life. It only follows starting to play paintball and getting my friends involved.
First game I ever played with this thing, first time I got shot, I got hit in the rubber area. I reach my hand up to check if it bounced or not. It did. That one incident made the whole thing worth it.
This is a great product, period, end of story, byby, see ya later.

Various Brass Eagle masks,I have to say,this is a good mask.
Brass Eagle Afterburner,Dye 12' Ultralite,4 Stage Expansion Chamber w/ Macroline Set up,VL Pro Series Delrin bolt,Blade Trigger with reworked trigger springs,VL Orion drop with on/off, Extreme Rage Overdrive Hopper,PMI Pure Energy 3000 PSI HPA tank w/ JT Tank cover
No Stupid anti fog film,you can SPRAY IT CLEAN WITH WATER!
The Rubber flex part actually gets you bounces.
Allthough it is comfy,foam head lining wears quicker than rubber.
This is a great mask,definatly worth the 40 bucks I spent for it,I am very happy with this mask. No more anti fog film that peels and ruins your vision more so than when it did fog. The air flow and breathing is only surpassed by JT masks with fans,or the JT ProFlex.
An excellent buy,if you're an intermediate,or for that matter,a pro,this mask is a perfect buy. So,what are you waiting for?
