Flex/i4s/Grillz

Decided to get a new mask. I need something that doesn't necessarily touch my tank and molds my face properly whenever I'm aiming.

I would recommend going into a shop and trying a bunch of masks on because everyone's face/head will be different. That being said I own a pair of grills and flex's and have no complaints about either. I just decide which one to wear depending on what tint I want or what color ribbon I am given to wear.
If you find your tank is too close to your mask you could also try moving the tank around with a drop forward or reg extender as well.

Thanks. My mask sticks out a bit from the bottom.


i4s fit my face well and the Grillz do too. Just curious about the flex.

Definitely find somewhere to try them on. Personally, I have switched to Vios. Similar profile to I4's but a little more coverage on the ears and cheek area for me. Super comfortable!

I find the flex sticks out a bit more than grills but it isn't like a huge difference

Agree, I wear flexes personally but both the Vio Contour and Extend feel pretty comfortable on my face as well. The i4's feel a little small.

Flex's are nice, but they do run a little longer in the jawline area so you might have some space issues. Try them on and see what works.

I wear a flex, i have a pretty long face and it offers good coverage for me. The i4 way to much of my face hangs out an uncomfortable amount actually. Profilers and grillz are both very nice on the face and offer good protection, don't have any experience with the Vios but i would like to personally check them out they seem very nice.

HDR lenses are the best out there right now for clarity.
