I've tried on both Vio models, and I usually run an E-flex as my main. The Extend is similar to the E-flex in that it gives you more breathability and is suited more for larger faces. I'm going with the Extend as my backup mask in the Virtue deal
The Contour is closer to the Dye i4 in terms of size, definitely smaller and closer to the face (at least on mine). I think it's definitely geared more towards those with smaller heads.
Try on the masks if you can before you buy one, everyone's heads are shaped differently.
That was one of my suspicions but I wasn't sure when Virtue started to produce these masks.
Since I'm a beginner in this sport I started to research as much as I can to buy the best entry level gear. This post (and this forum) are the most useful source of information that I've found.
I've ordered the Extend + Spire 200 + extra chromatic lens in the Virtue deal as well. However, I can't try on any mask except the rental ones since there aren't any paintball shop nearby (the package ships to Paraguay in South America). I'm almost sure the masks provided on the field are single lens and I wanted to invest in a good mask, I hope I made a good choice
Thanks for your comments, the Dye i4 would be my first choice if it wasn't for the deal
I keep going on my research on tanks and after that I'll go for the marker B)
