What's your favorite mask?

I can't really decide what mask to buy. I'm looking at I4's, Proto Axis', Grillz, or I3's. I don't want a flex or e-vents.

Suggestions? Any other masks I should consider?

Thanks

My favorites would be the Axis Pro and the Flexs. Neither really take precedence over the other.

One thing to consider is that masks are totally preference. Someone may find a certain mask total garbage while another person loves it.

ProFlex > all the above - Since you asked for my opinion. Also, buy the one that fits your head and playing style the best.

I currently have a Proto Switch, Axis Pro, and e-vent, I'll probably be getting a Grill next week.

All I can really say is to pay a visit to you nearest paintball store and try them on. I made the mistake of buying my Protos before actually trying them on. The Protos dont fit me that well around the nose(and i3s), the feel kinda heavy and restrict my breathing through the nose. The e-vents and Grillz dont feel heavy on my nose.

IMO Grillz are some pretty bad *** looking masks lol

I've tried on the I3 & I4, owned a Grill & played a game in an Axis and i still prefer Proflex over all of them.

But it's probably the most personal preference you'll ever come across in regards to paintball gear. The only other gear that's more "intimate" with your body would be slider shorts.

Love me some i4's. Best soft ears, best field of view. actually fit well around my face where the foam is(something jt's never have) are the lightest, and of course best style out of the box. Masks are all personal preferance anyway...get what fits you the best
