Cons: lenses scratch easily, fog issues
First, don't ever use Plexxus on Grillz lenses.

I loved my Grillz. They look great, feel great, etc. You can hear, speak and breath easily in them. I used them for two seasons and really liked them.

The only problems I ever had was that the lenses scratched very easily and had to be replaced often. The lenses became difficult to find after a while, also. They also aren't thermal lenses and so they fog more easily.



Disclaimer: When I used Grillz I was playing for a team sponsored by DXS. Since then I've played on a team sponsored by Empire and have used E-vents. This does not affect my review, but you can feel free to believe me or not.

I loved my Grillz. It was one of the best mask I have ever owned. They looked great and were extremely comfortable. Cover my forhead pretty good and all around good protection. They ended up tearing after a while. Not really sure how it happened so I can't really just blame it on the mask. This is a all around awesome mask and I would definetely consider buying another!

These are probably my favorite goggle system. I love how durable the lenses are (never seen one crack) and I like the looks of them. Only problem is sometimes when getting shot straight infront of the mouth, the shell/paint will come through and cut/welt you. This also happens in other masks, but I noticed that the grills had less protection than others.

I have had my Grillz for about a month now and they are by far the most comfortable, lightest, and most performing mask I have owned. Its also a good thing that they come with a goggle bag I wear glasses and with my old mask, it was very uncomfortable. But with the Grillz, I dont even notice them. They dont press against your face or anything and dont bend them. So the first time using them, I was very happy to get a bounce on the rubber part of the mask. And even in muggy conditions, only my glasses fogged up and not the grillz. Some say they dont like how there is not much protection for the neck. Well my suggestion is to stop getting shot in the face. I dont see any major inprotected spots. One thing that I think amazes me the most is cleaning and disassembly. I can take the entire mask apart and put it back together in under a minute. I gave it a 4 for value becuase I dont think any mask should cost this much.

ok first off, some people like to say that the lens gets scratched easily... that isn't true... what happens is that they are only supposed to put a layer of thermacure (the stuff that makes them "thermal" lenses) on the inside, but they put one on the outside also, so eventually the layer on the outside peels of... all you need to do is (this may sound stupid) but scratch off the scratch... it comes right off and it looks brand new... this is a great set of goggles! if you are looking into buying these definately doit! i used to wear proflex's and these totally blow them away!

Background Info:
The only mask I used before I bought a set of V-Force Grillz was the stock Tippmann mask that comes in the "Tippmann 98C Power Pack." I had decided that that mask just didn't cut it, and I needed something that performed much better. I did some research, and decided to buy the V-Force Grillz. Although I use E-Vents now, I do not regret buying the grillz and using them. The Grillz are great masks, and you get what you pay for.

Looks:
Some people say you look like a "bug" or an alien of some sort when you put it on, but most love the agressive styling of the Grillz. A lot of the newer, higher end masks are starting to have a more "agressive" style to them. When I used Grillz, I used Reverse Green/Black Grillz (Pretty much Olive Drab/Black) with an amber lens. I must say it looked good.

Comfort:
Although I prefer my E-Vents, they are both Extremely comfortable masks. It is really personal preference. If you are thinking about buying either, I recommend you try them both on first and figure out for yourself. Either way, they are both awesome masks, but as I said, it is all personal preference.

Field Of Vision:
A good field of vision, not the best, but still an excellent field of vision (as it should be with all high-end masks).

Ventilation:
Good ventilation, I wouldn't ask for more, but wouldn't take less. If you are breathing really hard, you can feel it but despite this, the mask still doesn't fog. Overall, I say ventilation is all around pretty good.

Lens Changing/Maintenance:
Extremely easy to change the lens. The E-Vents are just as easy, but you don't do it in the same way. The removable foam is also an excellent idea, and allows you to quickly change out sweaty foam between games. The only flaw I have HEARD of, but NOT EXPERIENCED with this mask is that it will tear near the strap (near the back of the mask). I used mine for over a year without this problem though.

Recommendation:
I definitely recommend this mask. It is an excellent choice, and you definitely get your moneys worth. Although, if you are considering a new mask, I recommend you try out a few. I am happy I switched to the E-Vents, and I would say try a few out before you buy one, because they perform very well, but you may find you like one more than another.

Pros: Comfort, vision, looks.
Cons: Lens removal not as easy as Profilers.
I had owned 2 Profilers in the past, sold both then regretted ever getting rid of them. But this time i wanted to try VForce's newer mask, to see if the mask is worth being a step above the Profiler.

Well the answer is yes & no.

Comfort & weight is just about the same. Grill has more bouncy parts. The mouth & jawline area are cut way different, to add to the aggressive look, which is good & bad - looks awesome but doesn't look slimming like the Profiler, although the Grill looking bigger hasn't caused me any problems on the field (not like i get shot more in the face or anything).

When i first got these, i still wore glasses. They didn't fit as well around glasses as the Profiler but in their defense my glasses were pretty wide. The face foam is split on the edges, as if to allow for the arms of glasses. Great attention to detail, even if my wide glasses caused me problems.

The Grill lens is shorter (vertically) than the Profiler lens but seems to be just as wide so peripheral vision remains the same. Not many people need to look straight up & down on the field, anyway.

My only gripe is changing the lens. To remove it, you have to remove the goggle strap, since it has clips that retain the lens clips (kinda like lens clip clips). They aren't easy to take out (yet). But once the clips are out, it just pops out. Easier than changing flex lenses but not as easy as the Profiler - they shouldn't have changed that.

tl;dr - looks & feels great but budget players should opt for the Profiler.
