Paint always breaks on contact, hot, fogs up, and is itchy.
This is a good mask if ur looking for somwthing cheap. But i never have had a paintball bounce off of it since it is all plastic.This mask also has good neck protection so dont worry about getting hit in the neck. I reccomend the Jt proflex for a cheaper price and if you wanna spend more get the dye invision.
Bad mask i reccommend the dye invision or Jt Proflex.
Piranha BL VF G3, all stock except 14" Progressive Barrel
Good neck coverage
Added forehead coverage
Does not stay tightened
This mask came with my marker and serves its purpose. My first game out I got hit in the mask and I ate some paint (not to mention the paint went through the slots on it and into my eyes.... ouch). I run about 50% of the time and it did not fog up very much. The foam is a little itchy but you don't notice once you get into the game.
This is a good Starter mask however I plan to upgrade to something a little more comfortable. It serves its purpose but i'm sure there are better out there. Great for someone who isnt sure how much they will play. I'd give it a 7.5 but they dont have 1/2 steps
Protects head and face well. I've never ate paint with it on.
Fogs during warm ,humid conditions. Lenses are tough to get out. Hard plastic.
This is a cheap basic mask. It is comfortable but very annoying when it fogs up. This hard mask does protect you well .I drilled extra holes in this mask for more ventilation and it still fogs up. If this mask didn't fog so much I would recommend it. But I can not. Not worth it unless you play in temps. 60 degrees or less. This was my first mask because I didn't want to spend much money but a mistake cuz a good mask is very important in paintballing. If ya can't see ya can't shoot.
Buy it if you paint ball on cool days and you're cheap. Other wise spend an extra 40-50$ more for a decent mask.

Good Field of View
Good Beginner Mask
Visor Gets In the way
Not Glasses Friendly
This mask is perfect for beginners but gets extremely uncomortable after about 5mins of play. it gets hot and fogs up. The visor blocks the field of view, so i took mine off. i also modified the foam so my glasses would fit. The good things are that you can see everything.
If you're experienced don't buy this. If you're a ginner then buy it.

These masks are really good and cheap! PMI stuff kicks butt so these masks are good. I shouldnt complian that they fog since i did notice that they didnt have thermal lenses. Get this mask its cheap and good! And u can get thermal spray for masks! So go get this mask!
I broke the lens on my spectra, so i used a friends x-ray for a while till i got a new lens. I liked it but not that much. It fit over my glasses well so that was great. The only bad thing was it had a kinda high profile so i too a few hits to the forehead that would have normally bounced, but other than that it was cool.
Ok, I work at a Paintball field here in brazil called Speedball ( www.speedballfield.com.br) and over there we rent these PMI Xray googles and the Piranha´s R6.
I usualy use a Jt Proflex cuz I am a ref, but two days ago I went to play a quick game and I decided to use one of those X-ray googles.
First of all. It fogs like anything else I´ve seen, right before the start it is already fogging ( and it was not a cold day ), that is one of its worst downsides.
The other one and the one who scared me was that during the game a guy hit me right between the mask and the googles, on the left down corner of the lenses, the thing is... the pait went trought it and hit my left eye... Omg.. that stinged alot
, I tought i was blind or something, lucky it was only paint.
Result, Pain... and Pink Left contact lenses ( Lucky i was wearing them)
Swear... I am never using this googles again.. they really suck.. ill borrow my friends invision =P
It is simple, it sux, dont buy it, its a waste of money, save a bit mre and buy something good, like the invision. The googles are the most important gear u can buy, How the hell do u expect to have the best marker in the world and hit something if u have ur googles fogged.
So buy something descent.

PMI Ext Pro 2K3(black)
Evil driver barrel(silver)
12oz Co2 on/off and a/s
12 volt revy or a Richochet AK
good protection and the price
field of view, and thermal doesnt work the best
Well, I bought this mask because it was cheap and it looked good. I got the thermal but rental thermals worked better lol. Anyways on a colder day with less heat it is great(less fogging). It also has great protection, solid plastic and it can bend to a certain degree.I would recommend it the newbies who are just starting out.
Good for newbies, but more experienced need better
This mask i got in a starter pack when i first started playing and im glad i chose this one. It is actually very comfortable. The only thing that suks is that its about a 2 inch gap between your chin and the mask, its pretty floppy. After a while the mask starts to come loose and you have to stop and tighten it.
a good mask but its no competition mask......its pretty cheap too.
