Dodgy masks fron China

Hey everyone!

I made a video testing these dodgy "Paintball" masks that are for sale on Wish etc. Also a reminder to get a new lens for your legit mask on a regular basis.

Let me know what you think of the video

Gimme a sub or comment while you are there and share the video to prevent people making the mistake of using these at your local site.

^ behold the no-nonsense critical commentary that drives members of this community to take the time to create content and value.

OP, thanks for taking the time - have you compared the lenses side by side out of curiosity? Any observations? How many shots did it take in your estimation before full lens failure?

Not questioning, the results speak for themselves i'm just curious for more objective data to further prove your thesis.

Cheers for the "mostly" positive comments guys

Full lens failure on the FMA2 was about 5 shots
I could go back over the footage and count the hits... but I ain't got time for that

How would I, as a responsible player, or field staff be able to tell if here is a mask like this being used, so that it can be properly dealt with?

Great comparison. I was surprised that the old gills lens cracked but like you said it didn't shatter like the FM's did.

If I were to buy one of these, it absolutely would NOT be for paintball. But, that being said, any idea if an I4/5 lens would fit the mask?

Great video, it is interesting that the first Grill cracked but did not fall out or break into a lot of pieces. You would most likely be able to see the crack start and discard the lens before it completely failed.

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.
