Do you guys allow people to play with flex bottoms flipped?

Hey i know this is kinda odd and specific but im noticing a trend at the field of people flipping the bottom of their flex's which exposes the lower lip , so should it be allowed or not?

As a ref,out of cousins paintball, in staten island newyork, At the local field yes i have seen alot of people like that. When on the field,it actully is allowed. Its not the safest things to do, but is allowed. And I will tell you why,its basically like a self taught thing. You should know if u have them up or down,And a teamamte should tell you, they cover majority of the room, but deffly still leaves space for a sucker punch shot. Alot of people leave it up for alouder communication, So they can scream louder on the field. Hope that explains it a little.

The wearing of goggles is mandatory and all insurance companies insist that all safety equipment is worn as intended by the manufacturer.

So if you are at any event that has valid insurance............ you must play with the goggles flipped down.

We always try to tell people before the game starts to put it down but if we see a player during the game we would pull them.

NPPL = not allowed

Players must not alter safety equipment from manufacturers' design. Some guys might let it go but you're not going to lose teeth on my field...

Honestly i do it when i play so im not going to yell at some one when im reffing to put it down. if they want to risk splitting a lip then by all means go ahead. hell i know some older guys that play with ONLY the lens frames( and lenses of course) from a set of JT spectras

you might get away with this at a shanty field or in the woods but no event is going to allow it. it's unsafe (let's not forget that it looks stupid too)
I have no problem communicating through a proper mask, no need to duckbill my bottoms to do so. if your team can't hear you - speak louder

I suggest they don't, but if they want to take that chance it's their decision.
