View Full Version : Full Face Masks - need advice
07-07-2003, 10:57 PM
With all the talk of engagement limits, face shots, chipped teeth, hot guns, etc., I'm starting to consider a full paintball-style face mask. My first few games were with some Paulson goggles and they fogged really bad towards the end of the day (should have read the Newbie FAQ about chemical anti-fogging stuff)
Anyhow - this site looks like it has good prices and selection. Any comments good or bad about the retailer?
I'm also very interested in the JT Vortex fan listed on this page. Does it work?
I'd like a mask that allows me to shoulder and aim my AEG with minimal interference. Would that be the Flex-7?
Thanks in advance for any advice.

I would suggest www.paintballpx.com I ordered from them, and it was absolutely great prices and service for me.
Mask wise, the lowest I would go is a thermal lense - the type that has 2 layers with foam between the 2 lenses to help keep from fogging.

I use JT nVaders. Check out out the review I did on the new Team Two website.

Myself and a couple other Strikers use the Vforce Morph mask. It's more expensive than some of the others, but it has definite benefits. The lense is virtually fog proof, its easy to wear glasses underneath it (if you need to) and the lense is almost perfectly clear (and distortion free). Check out the review here: http://www.f4og.com/op21.html :)
eBay has the V-Force Morph face masks listed for $60 and $80
Those the right type that you have HardLock?
If so, I'd invest the money...I cant see anything.

I would avoid PMI masks, as I question their lens quality.
The Diablo Skul mask is flexible and low cost, mine was 19.99 works great, very little fog, excellent breathablity.

PMI masks work just fine, when i first started i used the mask, got goggled repeatedly by both airsoft and paintballs and today they'd even hold up perfectly. Only problem is they fog pretty easy, as do most lowe quality masks.

Yes, the 2nd one you have listed there is like ones we use. The first one is same except it has mirrored lenses which are not exactly the best camo :D

Thanks for the input.
I found this as I searched for recommendations on a paintball-type full face mask:
Gave a lot of perspectives on the gear (albeit from pb'ers)
*runs away and places order on item*...oh wait, i dont have any money.
Man i hope my next paycheck is big...
I agree with the morph mask from Hardlock.
And for/against mask,
If you are pretty it will keep you that way,
if you are ugly no one else will have to see you.
So someone wins either way.
