Diesel and Revo should have some of the new Grill 2.0's to play in at World Cup and there should be a sample pair to check out at the GI booth that is selling paint.

Production Grill 2.0 masks should be available in black in limited quantities well before the holidays.

Same thought after seeing the ad. Its going to take quite the mask to top the Unite.

Just speculation but, I've noticed that depends on how the brand views the product. If GI views the EVS as a higher end mask than the new grill, then they would want impact to keep wearing them and promoting the more premium product since they seem to be the top team.

Or all of that is completely wrong and it's new grills for everyone lol

Impact seems to be pretty set on the EVS, or at least they don't mix and match like some teams seem to do.

The larger vent holes look nice. I wonder how the soft ears are. If they are around $100 I might pickup a pair.

Probably could do them for false advertising if you ordered them and the product turned up clearly called Grill, as they always have been.

Is that what happened? I used to love those old single pane lenses. They never fogged on me and cleaning them was simple, fast, and easy. Literally hold it under the cold water tap and shake them off and you're done. I hate cleaning my dual pane lenses. I can't just pour water on them, I have to be careful with a paper towel.

I thought they changed to dual pane because of industry pressure. Everybody else was selling dual pane as if it was unarguably better and most of the people I knew bought into it.

I still don't understand the Grill. I tried one on once and hated the narrow lens. I much preferred my Profiler back then, and eventually moved to an i4.

The vision on the lens is excellent. Contrary to what your brain tells you when viewing a product, you don't actually need a fishbowl of a lens to achieve a good field of view.

The expensive foam/frame replacement, breathability and some ear comfort (for some) were the main complaints/gripes you hear about the goggle. It sounds like those have all been fixed going forward, so it should be a home run.

Edit: Just saw the ears are a two-piece system now...Not a big fan of this. I was hoping the "soft ear" was just a softer rubber used on the ears that was still molded to the mask.

Seems like they straightened out the concave formed mouth-, nose parts. Same for the vent-holes and mask contours.

But really, this is a nice update of a classic. Like a few other goggle systems (JT's Spectra system and VForce's Profiler in particular), this one's been around a long time without too much updating for a good reason. When something works, keep it working!

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
