Hard to remove lense
This currently my main mask - infact i have 2 and possibly enough parts to make more. I love them cos they are light weight, great field of view and millions of colours accessories etc and i love the soft grill. However when our Empire Events arrive, it wont be my main mask.
The lense is hard to change altho I can do it in 5 mins now. The 05 google is designed different and uses a slightly softer material making it easy as to remove the lense + the JT barrel plug is designed to remove the lense too
Great mask, survived the times and pro's are still using it.
I got this mask for $37 and i am very happy with it. i got home a little bit ago after playing for 3 hours, it didn't fog once. I had the mask on the whole time too even between games because it is so light and comfortable that it didn't bother me at all.
I could see every thing with this mask. My friend was using a Profiler and i switch maskes with him one game just to see how the mask was. the profiler is really good and i think my Flex 7 had pretty much the same vision as the profiler.
I was trying to get my lens out to clean it and it took me 15 min to get half of it out. i gave up and tried putting them back in , took another 15 min. so i just cleaned it when it was in the mask. but the more you take it out and in the easier it gets my friend can get his out in like 5 min or less.
This mask is really good, buy this mask if you don't want to spend the $90+ for a profiler.
its only about $50 or less like i said i got mine for $37. I give it a nine because the lens is ridiculous to get out.

A-5 with flatline, egrip, T-6 stock, 20 oz CO2 coil/remote BSA 42mm red dot sight
Allows Me To Aim With My Sight
When I first tried it on it was so light. compared to my Nvader it was a feather. The foam was unimaginably comfortable compared to my X-ray and my Nvader. The Nvader sucked, it was heavy and uncomfortable. The flexible part of the mask allowed me to get my face close to my gun and AIM for the first time with my iron sights and my dot sight. Changing the lense is easy once you get used to it. I think it is a great mask.
-Light weight and comfortable
-Flexing lower part of mask
-Field of vision
I havent had any problems with it.
I just bought this mask alittle over a week ago and just used it for my first time the other day. I was very impressed. I ws using a old beat up PMI mask. It was awful...it ws so bulky and uncomfortable. My Flex is a huge improvement. I hardly notice im wearing it since its so light and comfortable. The flexing lower part of the mask is also great. It protects well and actually will cause some mask hits to bounce. The field of vision is great, it doesnt obstruct your view of the field in anyway. Mine came with a thermal lense so fogging is not an issue. Overall i think its a great mask. It performs great and looks great too. If your in the market for a good msk pick one up. ( I got mine for about 40 bucks)
This is a very lightweight mask with good vision and easy to just flip on .
Not as much protection as other masks
I purchased my Flex 7 when I first started paintballing last year.. I liked the mask and never had any complaints except it did fog up on occasion even with the thermal lens. I decided this year to purchase a Dye Invision.. They have a little better vision out of them than the JT, But I soon learned that they were too heavy, hard to put on and no better. So I sold it , bought a fan and went back to the JT Flex 7.
This is a great light weight mask as long as you dont mind a little less protection than other masks.

Easy to clean
You can get bounces
Never really fogs up
Lenses are hard to take out
First of all, this is the most comfortable mask I've ever worn. The mask has foam around the ears, this makes it more comfortable to me at least. My friend got a couple of bounces off of the bottom of the mask. My old mask used to fog up alot, but this mask has only fogged up once on me, But it was a rainy humid day so I can understand why. I got a vortex fan II and goggleskinz on my mask, the goggleskinz make your mask look even better than it already does and adds a bit of intimidation to your new look.
This is the best mask I have ever tried. It's really comfortable and the price isin't that bad either. I would recommend to everyone. My friend tried mine and liked it better than his mask and bought this one.

Good field of vision
Difficult to change lens.
I was a marshall for a year and started off wearing a Vforce shield mask, but then aquired the Flex 7 through my boss and never went back to the Vforce.
They are the most comfortable goggles i have ever worn, and would still be comfortable 7 oclock at night after a 10 hour shift at the paintball park.
Steaming up is an issue for me due to wearing glasses, but these goggles have never steamed up on me.
They are also relatively easy to disassemble for cleaning, except the lense which can be a pain.
This product is an allrounder which can be used in all situations with great competency.
If you want a good cheap goggle system, buy this.
Super light, mouth guard lets your voice to be heard compaird to other masks.
Soft spots like ears(aouch) and mouth. hard to clean.
When i first picked up the flex i was amazed. it was so light i couldnt belive it. i played a couple of games with it, it was very comfy and very light helped me look and move faster. it even let me have a comfy feel with my tank on my shoulder. i was suprised untill i got shot on the lens and the ear peice. dam did it hurt on the ear!
so i get home and try to clean the lens and found it to be a hard job since paint get in between the lens and te frame and runs out whenever it feels like or evrytime it gets pressed in.
For the price of the mask the weight and flexibility and design id give it a 10. but for the soft spots and the cleaning ill have to give it an 8.
Rental Masks. Non were very good. They all fogged.
My paintball experience has been streched out over 3 years. But I bought this mask when I bough my gun.

It is kinda hard to see down with your perrifial vision
USABILITY OF THE LENSES:
I was a little spectical of getting the lenses because I had read some reviews that said that it was extremely dificult to remove the lenses from the mask. I was very happy to find that this idea throughout the reviews is wrong. It is very easy to remove and put the leses back in so long as you follow the directions. If you didn't, I understand how it would be nearly imposible to put them back in.
Because of the rumor one of the first things I did was see how difficult it was to remove the lenses. So I opened up the instruction book and took a look. I read the directions and tested it out on the first device that held he lense in. "Very easy" I thought. So I tried removing some more. Still very easy.
Later, after I played, I cleaned the mask the way JT recomends. By removing the lense and cleaning out all the paint. The entire mask can easily be disasembled in about a 1 min and 30 seconds. Next, I had to put the mask back together. This was a little more difficult but with practice it should be very easy. It took me about 10 to 15 min to completley reassemble the mask. (That includes putting hte lenses back in and reattaching the goggles to the mask.) So I don't think it would be that bad. If you have to dissasemble them at the field (very unlikely) you will only miss maybe a game. with some time to spare. The hardest part to dissasmble and reassemble is the nose. I will post any tricks I figure out.
LENSES: Outstanding! that is the best word I can think to describ them. If you breath on the lenses on the outside the will fog on the outside but very quickly clear up. However, you cannot get the lenses to fog on the inside. you can breath on them and they will not fog. I have also realized that I am a heavy breather. NO FOG!!! These is the thermal lenses that I am talking about. I don't know if JT offers a non-thermal one.
There is a little bit of glare on the lenses. But I have not cleaned them or been goged wth them yet. So I am guessing the glare will go away.
STRAP: The strap to hold it on you head is very comfortable and easy to use.
Comfort: The comfort is excelant. Somtimes you need to get it situated right but overal it is very comfortable.
I have a fairly narrow head. because of this, the mask seems to be a bit big.
You can't just look down with your eyes. you have to look with your head. However, the side visibility is excellant.
There are two screws that hold the hear guards to the bottom portion of the mask. Make sure that those are tight before you play. After I cleaned mine I found a screw on the ground so I picked it up and put it on my desk. Later I was looking at my mask and noticed that a screw was missing. Sure enough, it was the screw that I had picked up. This can be prevented if you retighten them every time you completely clean them.
I would recommend this product to anyone. The best part about it is that IT DOES NOT FOG! Granted the mask is not perfect. But what is? I havn't had a chance to test out the Flex part yet. I am guessing that it would be good to ware a neck gaurd though because I don't know how a ball could break on the Flex part.
I want to give hte product a ten to keep the mask at it's good overall rating. But, nothing is perfect and I am sure that there are better masks out there. However, this is certainly a good mask, for a good price, with good quality. so I am going to have to give it a nine.

No breaks on lower face
If you get a top color other than black, the bottom rubber is always black
I bought this mask a couple weeks ago and i loved it. i put it on and it was very comfortable. i liked the gogglere bag it came too. i went out and played with it. as the game went on i was in a gunfight at about five yards with a guy. i felt something hit me in the chin. so im like "crap" i almost called myself out when i realized, oh i have a flex. so i felt the mask down where i got hit and it wasnt slimy. it didnt break. it was great so i was able to proceed to buker that guy.
later that day i got gogged in the lenses. when you get hit in other masks you have to wipe it off but it smears all over and you cant see as well. when i got gogged in this mask, within 5 minutes of gettting gogged, the paint had beaded on the lens and rooole off so i didnt even have to clean it.
great product. 10 out of 10
Ive used almost all goggles oput there and i reccomend this one for anyone who playes paintball
