Every time a complaint is brought up about these mask a rep is there to question and hammer the person who didn't like it. Has it ever occurred to you that they just don't like it? Players have given you plenty of feedback about making something softer, something that covers the jawline more, ect..every time these things are brought up, these sponsored goonies come around and troll the person suggesting this. Look, we get it, you are sponsored by them and have to say every thing nice about them. All in all, your input is very biased, so quit posting it.
but on the same note, those that do post about how they like the mask get all the flak from those of you that are too agg to wear this mask. since this thread is for NON sponsored teams/players reviews, i'm going to throw mine in as well.
i have worn masks from every manufacture on the market for the past 16yrs. from the JT whippersnappers and JT softs, to the e-vents and grillz. i've worn soft masks like the proflex, profiler, etc, and while the "bounce factor" is a great theory, it doesn't hold any water for most people. i cannot recall ever taking a bounce on any of the soft masks, on a couple occasions i took a full on shot to the face on my profilers, and ended up wearing all the paint, with none on the outside. i originally thought that the save phace masks would be bulky and heavy, where others have small profiles and are really light.
after receiving and trying on my save phace mask, i must say that i was completely impressed with the look, feel and weight of the mask. the profile is really tight, the field of vision is amazing, and the overall comfort of the mask is off the wall. the jaw line swells inward a little bit, but that's a minor discomfort, and something that i've gotten over in the past couple of weeks. i play with this mask every saturday and sunday, and it's quickly become one of my favorite pieces of gear. as far as the bounces on the save phace masks go, yeah, there won't be any. now skips on the other hand, tons of them off the forehead piece, the ear pieces, even off the front of the mask (i had my head turned the other way).
Jerry, Paul, and all the other Save Phace staff; you guys are doing an awesome think with these masks, keep up the good work! this mask is truly amazing. if given the chance to do it over again, i'd still buy it.
