I liked it. Like any new piece of paintball gear it took a little getting used to. There is a fair amount of padding in the ears and it is all on the inside of the mask, hard to see from the pictures, so it feels like your ears are more protected then your face is, haha.

The padding in the ears makes it a little harder to hear but as soon as we started playing our first game and the paintballs were wizzing past my head I could hear fine. The vision was great and all together I think the mask was pretty well done. It will be in the ear section that I think most people will have to get used to.

As for comparing it to any thing...I am not sure. With looks you could say its a Grill/IR4 hybrid look, but I think it is pretty unique. I did not get a rundown on how to change the len's so I do not no how that works.

All in all I think it is a soild new mask system for paintball

Thanks for the review!
Will you guys be switching over to this, or staying with the VForce masks? Nice job in Phoenix.

That would depend on what your looking for as final result? Practice really should not be fun . You should push yourself, sometimes doing things that are mundain and boring. But will pay off in time. Perfect practice makes perect. Just shooting your gun doesn't do it. Playing event are fun based on all that hard work at practice. So we are at the chick or the egg. If your playing for fun play the tourny don't worry about the finnish and enjoy the freinds you spent the day with. Just my thoughts?

The new breed of Aftershock shouldn't be compared to the OG's. It was a completely different game when B, DLove, Bruno, Dirt and Poopie played. I think it's safe to say they did not relish playing X-ball in comparison to the more ninja or run-down-their throats paintball back in the day. Back then, one of those superstars could make the game-winning move to result in a title. Today, a game winning move will win you a point. Add to that the coaching that negates many superstar moves and how many more points (games) they have to play to get to the podium.

It would be like comparing Michael Jordan to Lebron. Like basketball, there's a lot more talent in the upper echelon of paintball today, making it harder. These guys are younger and more athletic, and have to play against teams built the exact same way. Lebron, and the current Shock will win their championships. They have made moves and acquired some talent that knows what it is like to win at Race To. In short time, they will gel. And then...they will create their own brand of paintball, their own legacy.
