smart parts linear barrell 16"
Its cheap, reliable(most of the time) and sturdy
It fogs up like crazy.
Well i was browsing good ol' ebay for a new mask to replace my old one after i sold my 98c and the mask to my brother. Well anyway, i find this cheap vforce mask on ebay. and i say "what the heck, it might be decent" i was right. this is a great mask which is reliable but can fog up like crazy at the worst times
great mask, i would recommend it. You get a pretty big bang for you buck.

doesn't fog easily
in green you look like kermit the frog
this mask was a good beginner mask. It doen't fog very easily and is very comfortable. I wish that my proto switch el had the same foam that this one does. I seems to almost form to your face. Traded this mask with my brother for some crappy java mask. This mask was better. The mask is so big also. Didn't like the fact either that I looked like a frog when I wore it.
Good mask for money, but I would recommend a proto switch el over it any day for the money. I would give it a 6.5 if that was a number, but since it isn't I'll give it a 7.

Not good looking
lens are bad
Basically these are standard rental goggles. Santa Clara Paintball uses them. They're not very cool, but they do the job. THis is why I don't see why people buy $100 dollar masks when all you need a mask to do is to keep your face protected. Is it because it's frome Dye??? Just buy a normal mask and save your $$$.
This is a pretty cool mask, does it's job, and don't buy $100 goggles.

It protects yo face and eyes!
Slid/wobbled a little when running
I got this mask when i was just starting out and it was perfect for me. I wear glasses when i play n the foam made it a little bit of a tight fit but i got used to it very fast and never even noticed the tight fit [wit glasses on] anymore, there realy isint alot of foam but its pretty comfortable. I had to wear a hat wit this cause even with it adjusted it would slide or wobble when i ran. The visibility is excelent and similiar to my echo 20/20 lense, the lense only foggd once on me also. If you like to use visors youll have to glue it on cause mine falls off every 5 min when i used it. Lets see with this mask ive been shot in the ear, right under the lense and on the lense. On the ear shot it hurt like a |3i7ch and stung for a good while so i would try to put some foam there. The shot under the lense i didnt even no about till i took off the mask cause theres no way to have felt that shot. And on the lense i agian didnt notice and just thought my lense was fogging up till i realy payd attention to it.
Id say one of the best cheap masks there are for new-experienced players only real problem is theres no foam on the ears and visor barley stays on

Was spyder electra ACS w/ egg2 (lazy too look at ups.)
Now nothing so far. Just waiting for the money.
Not rubber and lences fog up sometimes
They fog up sometimes but they do the job. If they were rubber they would be that much better. Get some anti fog stuff. They dont exactly form to your face but it protects quite abit. They dont look the coolest but whatever. Tighten the strap pretty tight because they can easilly fall off.

Gets the job done
Easy to change lense and maintain
Not overly comfortable
Paint will break on this wherever it hits
This mask is designed as an entry mask and thats exactly what it is, not much more. For the price it is good, and for beginners one of my favorite beginner masks out there to be honest, I used it for over a year, and now my brother has it so if you maintain it well it will last. It is not overly comfortable and overtime you will notice it starting to slide around on your face, also the foam begins to fall off quite easily...making them useless and uncomfortable. Changing the lense is one of the easier things to do however and this is one major thing I look for on masks. Paint will not hit this and not break, it is all solid, so if your looking for something along those lines that will encourage bounces...wont happen with this mask.
This is a decent beginner mask, but only decent. If you've played paintball a while get something better simple as that. For the price it isnt that bad however.
Tippmann 98C w/ stock, 50-round Hopper, 20-oz. tank with remote hose
Flatline or stock barrel depending on the game.
Sturdy, scratch resistant., good FOV,
Easy to clean, lens removal is extremely simple
Lens fogs up, design makes it difficult to use a stock
For its price, this is an excellent mask. Its sturdy constructioon gives you some confidence about its ability to stop a paintball (I got shot in the ear with an older, flexible-plastic mask: ouch!). The lens only fogs up when the temperature is below 60-65*F. At that point, even running will fog it up. But during the summer, it performs well, and the FOV is pretty clear. The major downside is that the solid design makes it impossible to use the sights on my Tippmann when I have my M-4-style stock attached.
Its a good mask for the job. Its not a pro piece of equipment, but it is excellent for the price.

I think that This Mask is light, cheap and a good mask for beginers and I guess it is an over all good mask so yeah it's fine buy it I didn't think It was good enough so I decided to buy the dye invision so that it matches the gun I have versus the 98 custom I did have
Lens pops out in 2 seconds (literally)
Poor peripher vision. You really need to keep your eyes open.
I love this mask. Light weight, and very durable. Excellent quality lens. The only scratches I get are when I get hit o the lens while it's dirty. I don't think any lens can hold up to that.
There is little protection on the chin and neck, so be prepared to take some paint there once in awhile.
I can't comment on it's anti-fog ability since I only trust myself cleaning it with anti-fog spray anyhow. Since the day I've purchased it, I have always used it. And I've never had a problem with it fogging. Most likely due to the spray.
It's peripher vision lacks. But I put up with it, and keep my head and eyes busy scanning the field. It's light so it's not like that's a chore. Though it would be an asset if the peripher vision was better.
This is my favorite mask, and I'll always stick with -Force Armor. I don't think it gets any better than this one.
It gets loose after a while after wearing.(A long time)
After having this mask for a quite a beat its taken a beating from me. But id have to say i really do like the mask. I dont need all the fancy electro thermal crap.(Flame say away) It is very comfortable and id have to say the only thing that is a weakness is that the strap loosens up a bit after a while. other then that its a great mask.
Get it. Dosent matter if youve been playing 10000000years. its a good mask for like $20?
