When I got the "skips" i would hear a "WANG!" sound and feel the hit on the mask. I took cover each time and asked for a paint check. Each time I got a "your clean" followed by my "No way!" and then I would reach up and feel for paint. Sure enough, I was clean. I initially thought the whole 'Skip" thing was marketing hoopla and wanted the mask for the MultiCam pattern regardless. There is no way i anticipated getting any skips off this hard plastic mask. Four in in one weekend though is a little hard to ignore. I could not tell you if my other masks (E-vents, profiler and Grill) would have had the same success. All I can say is SP's claim of an occasional skip is substantiated in my eyes.
skips? you mean ball bounces
and there is no 08 Ion
i believe its called the Ion XE now
