-balls bounce easily
-good range of vision
-it fogs up a bit
-real hard to clean
well i bought this mask quite used from a local field cause it was dirt cheap and i needed a mask to get reduced prices (last piece of base equip) and this 1 works just fine for me. i have had to invest in a couple hot glue sticks because of the foam falling off and the lens is really really hard to get out. if you breathe through your mouth on mine the air is trapped inside and it makes ur face really hot, so breathing through your nose is an invaluable skill with this mask. the fact that it does not have a visor is kind of a pain when playing outdoor cause u can get some major glare but a cheap hat fixes this. all in all this is a good starter mask and almost all its problems can b easily fixed with either hot glue or a cheap hat.
i would recomed this mask to beginners just starting paintball who have some $$ for a quick mask to use only for a short time. i would probably recomend getting a jt flex 7 or jt proflex because it's just a better mask with better goggles. because it has lasted me quite a few games without too much hassle it gets an 8 from me.

Gem on the Fore head falls off easily but can be fixed
This is an Excelent mask definitly buy this mask it is very uncomon which will make you look unusual and it is the most comfortable mask I have ever worn. The entire mask is so flexible one on my friends shot me for time in the mask and they all bounced because the rubber just absorbed the paintball and shot it back out. The thermal lens is nearly imposible to fog as I have tried to fog it and it just won't fog. The one problem I have encountered is that the gem on the forehead that says SKUL falls off very easily but it isn't any thing a little super glue can't fix.
Definitly buy this mask I have tried on almost every tourney mask out there and this one is the most comfortable and also the cheapest. Definitly buy it if you get the chance.

you can breathe well in it
foam comes off.
lense scratches easier than most
I got this mask for 20. It is good but the lense would scrath if a little branch hit it. And also the foam started to come off which you can just hot glue it back. but i decided to bring it back to the store and im going to try the nforcer gogles by JT
its okay. but i would buy a better mask. for a few extra dollars. i will give it a 4 because its not that bad. i mean it works. but its not all that great

It's light, tight, small, and flexible. It's well-molded and in no way fragile. Great range of vision and clarity. No fogging, nomatter how out of shape you are. Balls literally bounce right off of it (except when they pop on the lens, of course). Relatively uncommon and looks really good. Overall coverage is fine, and it protects well (impact shock is spread fairly evenly). Great ventilation. Extraordinarily comfortable; almost feels like there's nothing there!
It really is kind of a pain to clean, unless you take the lens off. If you don't, you'll wreak havoc on the thermal lens. Also, make sure to take a moment between games to wipe the paint off the lens thoroughly. Otherwise, it'll actually start to mess up the outside coating (it's wierd.) The stock lens isn't as nice in quality construction as the replacement lenses. Glasses fit under the mask, but only just barely, and will put slight pressure on the bridge of the nose (no big deal, but I've worn masks in which this doesn't happen at all). If you want neck protection, get a neck protector.
It's an inexpensive mask, but it's easily one of the best I've worn. It hugs the face, provides a low profile, and protects relatively well. I highly recommend getting a replacement lens right off the bat; ideally a tinted one. Visors inherently cut down visibility, and this mask has really superior field of vision. The tinted lens will add immeasurable utility, and besides, it'll look even better.
It's a really great mask, and it's disposably inexpensive. I'd recommend it over any mask on the market, to literally anybody. Now if somebody would just invent a little LCD that sits inside the lens and tells me stuff...
Very Comfortable, not too snug and doesn't smash your face! Doesn't Fog up and sits comfortable! it's not that hot, i mean it has alot of air holes!
It feels kinna soft, i haven't been shot in da face but i don't think that this will protect u much! doesn't come with a visor, i had to add my own! once i put my visor on it wouldn't stay in on the sides so i used shoe goo to hold it on!
I don't really care about safety but i guess that this is a good mask, i'd probably just buy wat evers expensive or wat ever got the best rating! so if u like this just buy it!
Tight, small, fits very nicely, bounces paint off, only had breaks on lens, can find new lens's. Like guy on the first page sed ¿down/up? can use other lens's for it. Great price, light weight too. And for the GRAND FINALLY, it just look Mad Cool. everyone should agree.
Might not be enough protection for WIMPS. But in Paintball, who are wimps? We all go out and shoot balls of paint at each other at 300 FPS. I beleive there are no wimps in Paintball, maybe the people that go to the rental fields for the first time, or maybe Jocks who exadurate the size of their small welt to their girlfriend so they get some. Well back to the point, not much in this department!
Very good mask, for the price you cant go wrong.

1. nothing breaks on the mask itsself (just the lens)
2. looks awesome
3. great price
4. kinda unique (i'm the only person at my home field that has one)
5. extremely flexible
1. the foam DOES fall off, but that's nothing a little hot glue can't fix (-1)
2. replacement lenses* are hard to find and it doesn't have its own visor**
3. i was really looking forward to the chinstrap and headstrap that diablo promised
i've used this mask for a while and i love it. i would recommend it to any tourney player and serious rec player but it migh be too painful for n00bs.

stays tight to your face - small target, many bounces, looks bad ass
no visor, can't replace lense, thermal lense is peeling off (fogging between two lenses) Does not deflect paint away from face, tends to direct all hits into your mouth actually, big hassle to clean especially around the edge of lens, foam comes off, and no upgrades for it. For $50 you can find a better mask but for 30 as it is now @ some sites it's probabyl pretty worth it.
Cool looking mask but it doesn't have a long life and you can't replace the lens. Hard to clean and not worth $50 which is what I payed for it over a year ago. It's probably not a bad deal for 30
This mask is very comfortable. Looks great and doesn;t cost a whole lot. This mask is great for tunny players. Once worked in the balls will bounce right off the mask :). it Doesn;t fog up. Lense is very easy to get off for cleaning purposes.
this mask is not for new players who are afiard of pain. It doesn't cover your neck. Other then that this is no problems with this mask
Buy this mask if ur a turnny player, trust me its a great mask and its cheap too.
I'm a big diablo supporter so i would say get this mask or use nothinig :) j/k
