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.

- Soft Rubber Forehead
- Soft Rubber Visor
- Soft Rubber Face and Mouth Vents
- AntiFog and AntiScratch Lens
- No Slip Straps
The VForce Profiler Mask is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
JT Reaper (best lense change system ever)

Aimpoint Red Dot Sight
Me getting the V-Force Profiler is totally the result of peer pressure. I often see all the pro-players using either Dye stuff or the V-Force stuff. Since I don't quite like how the mouth part of Dye masks sticks out (plus the fact that I can't afford Dye stuff), I purchased the V-Force Profiler during a sale.
The V-Force Profiler is very good looking mask, plus it is very light compare to my JT-Reaper. The soft rubber may also get me a few bounce or so, however since I haven't get a facefull yet, I will not confirm this rumor.
One of the problem I have with the Profiler is the fact that the lense change producedure is relative tedious. I have to unbuckle two straps, slide two tabs out, and gently pop the lens out. I often worry that I may snap the lens in half when I am popping it or our back it.
The V-Force Profiler is a good mask, but it is not the ultimate paintball mask.

AMAZING vision, comfortable, great ear protection, and great construction.
No forehead protection(bought it knowing this).
If you have the money this is easily the greatest mask. It has a great lense with great vision. It is super comfortable. It is a very low profile mask. Has very flexible ears for those ear shots, they should just bounce. I don't like the look of it with any of the visors. But overall the greatest mask I have ever seen or worn.
I would recomend this mask to anyone who is just starting out, or any professional player. Greatest mask EVER!

Comfortable, easy, fast cleaning, colors.
I got this mask for christmas and I wanted to wait to go to the feild to write a review. This mask rocks, its feild of vision is as far as your eye can swivel in your head. The options of colors are impressive, and cleaning is super easy(pop, pop snap, your done!). This thing never fogs and I was outside wearing it in -15 degree weather, and it never even thought about fogging. It hugs even my small head and the mouth protecter actually holds after an impact instead of other masks that flop back and sting you in the face.
JT masks. No comparison here as the Vforce is a much better priduct in every sense.
-Smart Parts Ion: Firebolt, DOP Reg, Smart Parts QEV, 32 deg Drop Forward, Freak Barrel kit.
-Tippmann 98c: expansion chamber, HPA, polished internals/
-Plenty of lenses to choose from
Price, but Ebay solves that.
This is a comfortable mask with great visibility and very good quality foam.
It never fogs up on me even in high humidity condiitons. Works well with bill and forhead protector as well. I found two, used, on E-bay for $25 each. WHAT A DEAL! Easy to clean and the lens is a snap to remove.
Buy it and be satisfied with everything it has to offer!

This mask is excellent. Very comftable and lightweight. I've played in very humid condition and I can tell the ANTI FOG is great. If you have a big head maybe your chin may exposed a little, but no big deal. Suggest you try it. Super fast to clean between games.
For me It has been a great change. ANTI FOG ANTI FOG........ANTI FOG. Love this mask. You wont be dissapointed.

I have had this mask for 2-3 years now. I got it when it first came out and I have absolutley loved it until now. Usually when I play paintball its no more than an hour or so on average.
The mask has never fogged on me while playing for short periods of time, its very comfortable, EXCELLANT vision, and its just so comfortable. The looks on the mask are very good too, thats always an important feature besides safety and functionality. After playing in all weather conditions for this mask has never fogged.... until now... read on.
I was recently at the Tippmann World Challenge in Michigan where all the Tippmann owners take on all the other brand guns in the world. This was a HUGE two day event with over 2000 people. Their were 2 games each day each game lasting 3 hours. This is where the cons come into place with this mask, for this event was its final test, and IMO it failed. The weather was 75 with about 70% humidity both days. Towards the end of the first game on the first day it started to fog a little, thats weird it never did that before, no biggie though. It went 3 hours without fogging so I didnt think twice. The second game a few hours later the mask started to fog like crazy 20 minutes into the game. I couldnt see a thing! The last thing you want your mask to do is fog up when your stuck behind a barrier at the bottom of a hill with 300 people shooting down at you. I had to call myself out dozens of times throughout the day just because of my vision problems. This had never happened until now, so after the day was over I went over to the VForce trailer (they were the primary sponsor besides tippmann) and I bought a new lens thinking my old one was just worn out. On the second day I had the same exact problems with the new lens.
The mask has poor ventilation in the front. It keeps all the heat from your mouth in your mask so your mask condensates all over the inside eventually making its way to your lens and condensating/ fogging it up. it gets really disgusting after a while and you have to take your mask off, wash off your lens, dry everything off and air dry a little bit, because if there is any moisture this mask with condensate. Now when your at a major event, this is the last thing you want to do because its extremely time consuming. I never had a problem with this mask but it had never truley been tested until now, and I am very dissapointed. I even took the whole mask to the VForce trailer and talked to the guy there, thinking maybe my mask was defective and didnt have the proper ventiliation, because 90% of the people there had this mask and the people I asked didnt have this problem. I get to the trailer and simply ask the guy if this is supposed to do this and he replies with this: "Im sick of you people blaming our masks for you sweating too much, theres nothing wrong with my product, theres something wrong with you" those were his exact words, which tells me a lot of people there had my problem. and for the record: I do not swear a lot. I am very athletic and sweating isnt something I do alot of without doing hardcore body building or running a marathon. I even had a head wrap and a bandana around my forehead to act as a sweat band.
I dont know about the grillz, I have heard good things, but after a God aweful condensating/ fogging problem, and a serious lack of customer service from VForce, this mask just about ruined the coolest paintball weekend of my life. Im currently looking at the 08 Dye I3 pros with the thermal lens, but I will NOT be going back to what I thought was my trusty profiler.
I would not recommend this product unfortunatly. If your really into paintball and you play for long periods of time, I would not get this mask. Unless you dont mind using the last of your water to splash over the inside of the lens every 5 minutes, then you might like this mask. But if your a casual paintballer who doesnt play for more than an hour at a time, this is a good mask. Especially for the price, I paid $90 when it first came out.
I'm giving it a 5 because its just average. When you need it the most, its too busy condensating on the inside to be useful
Paint sometimes gets under the lens
Well, i started using the JT proflex that my cosin gave me for a present. It was a good mask but it tended to atract the paintballs and i used to get alot of jawbone slap when i was hit. So my parents said I could get a new birthday present. So I got a profiler. One of the best gogles ive ever used. The first thing I noticed was how slim it looks. Much more pleasing to look at than my proflex. The second thing was how good it looks as well. So i go out onto the field and chuck on my mask and whoa! The difference in my feild of vision was astounding. I could see about 25% more than i could with the proflex and about 15% more than the Dye I3 pro (my mates got one)
After about 3 club days i get hit in the lens and a little dribbles under. So i take it home and find the lens removal a snap. Besides the fact that the clip are a little hard to pull off at first, it was easy. Easy to put out and in. My mate has never taken apart his I3 Pro because its just way to complicated.
With fog, i have had no trouble foging what so ever. Ive played in many different weather conditions and had a big ZERO with fog. Again, sometimes my mates I3 pro gets a little fog.
I recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a good, pro level mask at a good price. 9.75

I used this mask on a hot summer day and I got NO FOG! really this mask is a must for any paintballer. Even though it's a little bit more expensive than most masks, it's still fairly affordable and it is definitely worth it. The quick change lens system is great! takes about thirty seconds to a minute to change out the lens, but that's with cleaning it and taking all the paint off, about ten to twenty seconds without cleaning.
overall a great product! very easy to clean and fairly affordable. I will definitely recommend this to a friend

When new lens is slightly difficult to change IMHO
Ive had this mask bout 1.5-2 years now and i seem to keep coming back to it. I have the all black one so it goes with any color scheme or uniform. I keep getting or buying new mask but i eventually will wear my profilers again it seems. The biggest thing i like bought them is that with the forehead guard attached my forehead is pretty much completely covered. I have a big head lol and a semi high forehead so most mask leave some of my forehead exposed and i hate that. This mask doesnt and its comfortable and looks good.
If your looking for a great mask and dont want to or cant afford a new Grill or any other top dollar high end mask get a profiler you can find them for like 60 or under these days.

I bought mine off PbNation for $10. Of course, there were some flaws. It didn't have any ears and was a little dirty. So I bought some expensive a** $20 i3 soft ears (they cost twice as much as the mask!). Takin out the crappy strap the dude gave me was a pain. Takin the lens out was easy. VForce always has made their masks the easiest to clean. All it you had to do was lift and pull the tabs out. I replaced the strap and lens with my morph's. I put the sexy leopard ears on and cleaned up the mask a little. When I first played with them people thought they looked cool. They worked great on the field and are now my main mask. All I spent was $30 and an hour to make my sh*ty mask a bad a** one.
