Event-venting mod?

Any one else think that its kinda hard to breath in your events?
does anyone know of any mods to help this from happening?

i have been thinking about it and thought maybe it would be okay to leave the vertical rubber along the front and dremel off the horizontal plastic from the back. so you end up with the parts marked in red gone. more breathing space.



if anyones tried this please let me know.
if not im probably going to do it anyway so ill fill you in when its done.

Maybe it would also help if you cut out every other little vent thing on the black part surrounding the mouth. Like the little pieces of plastic that go across.

PSP is the only one sto have that rule and something that small they wont notice. Most reffs dont enforce it unless its major like a soft eared profiler or something.

Yup, even thought it is not that greatly enforced you can still get penalties from it. If I recall a player got a penalty for having the plastic on a pro flex flipped up.

If it works though it would be a good idea.

Actually, I don't think that taking that area off will affect your breathing much. But if you could some how add vents along the sides, much like almost every other mask out there, that would help greatly.

Should make it easier to make some good cuts in the mask to allow for more venting.

It will slice right through the plastic. People do that to the Ion bodies all the time to remove all the crap on them. Since you don't have a dremel this is the next best solution that I could think of. Good luck.
