Therma lens is always better than a coating or other anti-fog systems. I like the I-3pro.

Proto has some really nice masks, I haved owned the Proto Axis for just about 3 years now.

______________________-

I feel like some people just dont get this:

The best way to stop fogging is for your mask to FIT your face. It doesnt matter what mask costs what or how many vents it has, It doesnt matter if it has a anti-fog coating, two lenses or three. THE biggest factor in reducing fogging is the fit the mask provides for your face.

You can have a 30$ rental mask, if it correctly fits your face, it wont fog.
You can have a 120$ mask with thermal coating super fog resistant, vent enchanced, forehead flow, nasel passageway vents... If your cheeks are to chubby or your nose is kinda small it will fog becuase you open gaps up in other places.
_______________________________________

What does this mean?
TRY ON as many masks as you can.
most stores wont allow you to try on the masks, although some will. your best bet is to go to a field and ask someone in the staging area if you can try on thier mask. 90% of paintballers today would LOVE to talk about thier equipment and how it works for them. I have asked people If I can try barrels on my marker in the chrono area. I have asked to hold other people's markers. I have asked If I can shoot a few rounds from thier marker in the Chrono area. ( tryed this with the T8 and the TPX, both owners actually tryed each others markers. (TPX guy now wants T8 guy's marker lol.) I have asked to see how other people hoppers look on my marker.

as long as your not intrusive and your intentions are good. you'll have your answer.

really? the seal if broken on mine and no matter how much i tighten it it still won't stay nice and snug, my mask can be pushed up and down, just not to the point of health issues.

I have the i3 and a vforce profiler. I really want a grillz because I have heard they are great. I am a woodsballer though so I like my profiler the best. NO FOGGING!
Always looking for cheap Tippmanns and Tippmann upgrades. What do you have? PM me! Don't be shy!


I also do custom paint jobs-digi camo, tiger stripe, snow/urban camo and desert camo.

Profiler fogs on me.

What can I say...I am a hot head I guess.

If the Fle8 worked for you at one time...then you should consider staying in that line...ProFlex...or even some of the newer JT oprtions.
You already know they fit your face and work well.

Without trying on other options it become a gamble if it will work for you.
Like myself...Grills simply do not work for me...my nose actually hits the body of the mask and my entire jawline shows.
Dye Masks are just not comfortable...to me.
Profilers fog when i play.

I have had good experience with JT's and Empire/Invert.
The new Empire E-vent is a very nice mask and the Invert offers better rec player protection with the sam fit and lens as the Event.

As mentioned befor me...try before you by...we can not stress this option more!

i have a JT Spectra...it's not high end...but it's affordable and with the thermal lense you'll be fog-free!
