Mask advice!

Looking for a new mask. I tried the eflexes and wasn't a fan.they just didn't fit right.
My two choices are proflexes and i4s. The only thing I'm worried about with the proflexes is the lack of protection I've heard about. The problem with the i4s is the price. (I'm on a budget)
So what do you guys think?

I think that you should either man up and get the Pro flexes or cough up and get the i4s.

Basically it's this, more possible pain or more money?

I would say the problem with the i4's is lack of protection and high price. Unless you have a head the size of a newborn child then your face will hang out of the i4's especially when yelling.

White ones are pretty hard to find. They make limited runs at Huntington beach (or at least they used to. Not sure if they do now). You can find them on here, but they tend to cost some money.

As for the lack of protection, (hope you didn't hear that from Mike Phillips from the "other site"), you can always get Vents or old Dye Invision ears to put on it. They're a bit wider, and fit on with little modification.

i wouldn't go on a budget with a mask. that is one of the most important things in paintball, safety. and your eyeballz.

i would go i4's personally. i love mine. proflexes i didn't like because of the wide profile.

go to a store an try them out each, or at your local field.

flex's are nice cuz you can customize the hell out of them.

each person will tell you differently about masks, because each person has their own opinion.
