This is obviously true^

However just to add some insight, when I took my girlfriend out to play I let her use my I4's (which fit on her head great) and she loved them because they sat really close to her face, and were nice and tight. She didn't like my proflex's because of all the opposite reasons, she wouldn't even use them on the field.

If your girl is going to go out and play with you, let her choose a mask she likes. She can't have fun if she's worried about her mask the whole time

If you have a moderately skinny face, go with the i4s. Just go to your local shop and try on a pair and see how they feel - that's really the best way to go about this. I have a pair of Gray Tiger i4s and love them. They fit snug, stay on my face, are super light, and the visibility/audibility is great. It literally almost feels like you're not wearing a mask. Good luck.

I am not a fan of the I4s because my jawline sits lower then the mask....so i will get pieced up in my jaw which feels bad.
I LOVE the eflex though.
Profits = hard to hear out of (atleast for me)
I suggest going to a shop and have her try out a few pairs.

Oh shoot, sorry about that. Disregard my last statement then lol. Try some different masks on and maybe even see if someone will let you play a game in them. That's the best way to tell what you'll like.

I just bought i4's, my cousin WAS gonna buy them too, but his jaw line drops out of the mask when he talks, so he decided not to buy it.

As a few others said, go to the proshop and try them different masks on, hopefully you can check it out in a mirror or get a sales person to give his/her opinion.

but yeah, i4's are very comfy to wear. BUT if your jaw/face gets exposed from talking or not talking, then don't get them cause it defeats the purpose of a face mask if it doesn't cover you.

My wife uses a Proflex. Not that she wouldn't try something else, but she wanted purple, and that was the only mask i could find w/ purple parts. Now if she played more, maybe she'd want something different.

My gf found the profits to be more comfy because of the double strap(she was able to put each. Strap around her ponytail)

I4's good for small heads. Profit is better for medium sized one, Eflext larger heads...I have medium size head, but I own I4's the lower coverage is minimal, with my Jaw bone slightly showing, but chances are low I get hit there, and I have to push my ears in a bit. Profits iare super comfy on ears, but heat up fast and breathing is harder than both I4's and flex family masks. Ive owned I4's Profits, proflex, pro axis, I3's, events, Grillz JT flex 8's etc. and now I use e-flex and I4's(cam for woods ball)...hope this helps.

I didnt want to state things in terms of sex fitment, because some girls got big heads too.

PS you can double strap eflexes and proflexes and I think to a certain extent the I4's to but I have not tried.

Like everyone has said, it depends on the person.

My mom prefers the Grill or the Proflex over i4s while my (ex) girlfriend preferred my i4s.

Try them all on her. For most people I'd give them a JT spectra. Same thing as the flex but wont get any face slap when they get beaned in the mouth portion of the mask. The light weight is what makes it comfortable. No heavy rubber and thick poop hanging off your face.

But really all that matters is comfort so just throw the mask on and have them shake their head around and see what works. If you do this at a local shop and they actually have all of the masks you want to try, buy it from them. It may cost 15 bucks more but it will keep those poor guys in business.

I3s toe would be a perfect route to go. They sit just a little lower than the i4s and arent HUGE. It's all personally preference but that's what I prefer.
