Question Question with Event masks

(I read all reviews in Mask Reviews
I m gonna buy Event or Dye I3 soon.. and im just wondering how u guys play with Event and other mask.. cause Event and most of mask doesnt have a headshield ...

I dont like mask with no headshield cause i got hit on my head 3 times when i FIRST played paintbal 2years ago..

Also I saw Event mask Carbon Fiber one and it was 20 dollar expensive..and whats the difference?

So... do you think Event mask would be better than Dye I3 ??

also go to But by head shield do you mean full head coverage? If so then the I3 doesn't either. There is a brow shield and visor.

I love my Events.

If you mean full head coverage like the picture above then the flex-8 is your only choice. But if you are talking about forehead, then the events brow shield covers the forehead. But it's not that bad, last time i played i took 2 shots on the top of the head and it didn't hurt a lot.

I find that ever since I have started wearing a beanie my head has hurt a lot less. The only problem with them is now it is too hot to wear them.

That being said, neither one really covers your full face. The E-Vents will probably cover more because of the brow shield. As shown above the only mask with a full head coverage that you would want to wear are the JT Flex 8s. I'd advise you to stray away from that idea though.
