Fogs like no other unless you are using anti-fog stuff of somesort.
I got this mask with my gun so i figured why buy another one? Well after using it i saw why. They fog horribly. Even when i played indoor they fogged. Infact, i had to call myself out a couple of times because i could literally only see about 10-20 feet infront of me. These were comfy though, alot more comfy than other masks in my opinion. They are light too. But whats the point of a nice comfy mask if they fog within 2 minutes so badly that you would just be wasting ammo playing with them? Well knowing i couldn't yet afford a new mask i went out and bought some anti fog spray. This helped a bit, but they still fogged. They just didn't fog as fast as before. After a few games of applying anti fog after EVERY game, they didn't fog one bit during the games i played after, even outdoor. Slowly but surely, they were builing up some resistance. They aren't horrible now, but dont ever buy them if you play games that last longer than 3-4 minutes. (most people do)
Dont buy them. Infact dont even use them if you have an alternate option (unless your alternates really suck bad). The only reason im using them is because i got them with my gun and i have antifog. If you MUST use them, just have antifog handy and you should be OK.
JT Alpha Elite - way better for the same price
JT Spectra - much better, but price is a concern
PMI Razzor 14" barrel
PMI 200 round standard hopper
Pure Energy 20 oz CO2 tank
and of course - java v-type
- Rubber material promotes bounces, not breaks on the mask
-Foam is itchy
-Not much coverage below upper chin
When I bought this mask ,y previous one had just been stolen - thanks mystery quadder! - so I was not to worried about quality, or looks, I was more worried about getting back into the game as soon as possible, so I bought the cheapest mask at my local pro-shop. Now don't get me wrong, it was a great price, I just didn't realize what I could get for the same price. And so I bought this, and this is where it began:
- The so-called "anti-fog" coating wears off fast, and left me running in circles, shooting at what moved (which was usually a tree in the wind).
- The foam; itchy, weak, uncomfortable. It peeled off in little time, again, causing my mask to move, and fall down, no matter how tight I made it.
- The coverage is minimal, the mask is quite small, and while that does make it more mobile, it leaves a large area between the upper chin and neck open. Call me a wuss if you want, but I really don't care.
I will say this for the mask: The faceshield is made of rubber, so instead of broken balls splattering paint into your mouth, the ball merely bounces off, leaving you in the game to go get the scumbag who shot you in the face. haha =)
I would recommend this mask to anyone who is an occassional player who is not looking to make that crucial bunker slide, take out the last guy, hang the flag, and get the girl.

Kingman E-99 Avant paintball gun, 1 16oz CO2 tank, 1 12oz CO2 tank, metal feedneck with thumbscrew hopper adaptor, revolution hopper with X-board installed and a kingman antichop delrin bolt
Dual treated ant-fog lens, 190 degree field of view, flexible lower part
Bad ear protection, wear hat backwards and feels fine and dosent move around
This is a great mask for a beginner, and a itermediate player because it is cheap and looks great.
This mask has all the great features as a 60 to 100 dollar mask for a lot cheaper, it is light weight and feels great on ur face, with the flexible lower mask part u can modife the mask.(i will have a pic up as soon as i get my camera)it makes it look cooler and tighter to the face.
The only 1 problem that i have with the mask is the ear piece but wear a hat backwards and it fixes is right up.
Get this mask if u dont want to spend money on a mask and u can modife it to make it look better(ill have a pic soon) this mask is great
Spyder TLX (Moded) I Tippmann A-5
ACB I Flatline Barrel
On/off 20 oz
Looks freakin cool
Fogs under 65 degrees
Foam is itchy as a mofo
Ears are unprotected
Got these free with my tlx and use them for woodsball because i dont wanna scratch up my profilers(<3). They work great in warm weather, but in temperatures under about 65 degrees they like to fog up really bad.
I dunno what the foam is made out of but the crap is itchy, but the fit of the mask makes up for it.
Ear protection is what i hate the most abut these googles, gotten shot in the ear 3 times since ive had these and it took about an hour to get all the midnight paint out of my ear.
Overall great goggles for the price i recommend them because they are better then 70% of the goggles out there and u can pick up a pair for 20 bucks
20 oz SP on/off co2
Fenix E-frame [modded]
-Bounce (Read conclusion)
-Soft Plastic mouth
-Lense scratches really easily
-Plain out weird, look at review.
Cons: The plastic is very loose everywhere. Like the place where things connect. It's not anything big, but it gets kinda annoying. Also the soft plastic mouthpiece is risky because it might penetrate or roll down and get your neck/throat.
Pros: It's cheap and protects you.
Netural: I don't know about fogging too much, it might be that I didn't take care of it too well, but that's just me. My lense are all scratched up from one time use. (I used paper towels to clean on field =P.)
If you don't want to spend too much, get it. I'd rather get something else, but I guess paintballs can bounce. I got shot once through the crack between my visor and mask, right on my forehead, and it bounced well, lol. Maybe it hit my mask, but I don't know. The soft plastic might help bounces. Might. I'd rather get a nVader or nForcer or something else, though.
Chipley J2 with eblade halo hopper 70/4500 tank
Back up TippmannA-5 with flatline and E-grip dropforward
Scratches, Fogs up ,Cheap foam around eyes peel.
I bought this for Ispent all my money into the guns and upgrades it was cheap. You get what you paid for!, but ive seen worse.
Cons: during matches the mast will fog up on you during heavy breathing, scatches easy, and foam on lens tends to peel.
Pros: it is light and afordable will recomend for its price bracket.
It's good for beginners, better than most jt mask , best mask for the price bracket. but like i said you get what you paid for. if we were to compare it in its price bracket i would say 8.5/10 but compared to all mask 5
JT Radar (single then thermal lense)
some Brass Eagle POS
PMI Piranha BLVF Electronic Trigger Frame Marker, with 32 Deg Expansion chamber, and SmartParts 14 inch Progressive Barrel
Wide field of view, soft, nicely wraps around your eyes.
Lack of any protection past the ears, fogs up in extreme heat, thermal lense cracks.
I got this mask just cause it looked cool and cost was 21 bucks!! First game i played was 5 hours of light rain and temps 65 ~ 75 deg F, after applying extra antifog spray no fog, no problem. It is very confortable, and for those who feel that the JT Elite style is too tight and squeezes your temples too much, this might be a mask for you. When playing in high heat the mask will fog a bit, but ur generic bough on the field anti fog will take care of that. Never got shot in the face so i donno how well the soft rubber will work, but prolly way better than having paintball splinter in your face like on regular masks with too big holes in front! I know i was bleeding in the JT Radar i have more than one from that.... Side and top protection is good, I like that mask and keep using it cause over all it preforms as well as JT and Z-Leader for about 25 bucks less... plus you can't beat the field of view!
UPDATE, I fitted the mask with thermal photochromatic lense from Kingman, always after 4 - 6 games of wearing the thermal lense whould crack down the middle... this is not too good if it cracks on you during the game, for one paint can get in between the layers, 2 it can not be enough and let the ball pass in direct hit.
For the price, the mask has wikked features, it is confortable, nice wraps around your face, its light, and stas put, deep nose cut ( for those with bigger than avreage noses, yeah I'm pointing at you greek boy!) I reccomend this mask for any begginer, intermediate, and even an occasional tournament player, there are mask for 150 bucks there... but do you really want to spend so much on it? It works, done! There is the issue with cracking thermal lense, I still like this mask but the brittle thermal lense makes me look elsewhere for a better mask.

black matte B2K3 w/ yellow highlights, evo 2 , 32*drop , and system x w/ centerflag reg tanks

Can probely bounce balls
Foam kinda itchy to me.
I tryed out this mask at my proshop just so i could help people asking about it
It was pretty nice for the money $26. The rubber part feels like it can bounce balls and looks kool but i havent tryed it yet.
the only bad thing and might only affect me is the foam but easily replacable.
Descent mask for a great price.
Buy it if you need an extra mask or a new one.
