A mask doesn't seem to represent the sport well, but I'm gonna have to go with Flex's.

Well JT has been around for a while, usually when you go to walmart and buy some sort of brass eagle marker package a cheap little JT mask is included, that and JT masks are readily available at most walmart stores.. thats where my friend got his JT mask, i eventually got the same mask, but i got it at action village since they have different types of lens and other accessories. my helmet camera goggle mount fits PERFECT on the mask strap, but to ensure it wont slide off i added some 3M dual locking strips to the goggle mount and on the mask, it it is going NO WHERE!

I would take a pic of my mask right now but all my camera equipment is in bags cause im leaving in a few minutes to go to a friends house and do the review on this holster..
here is the mask from action village

JT masks are pretty easy on the wallet, and most come with thermal lens, so if you are a budget baller (like most of us are in these times) this is a great mask that will give you good service.

oh and after reading Mehphisto's post, JT does have the flex series as well..

The Flex..as already stated...JT has been around for ages, and they are still a high end mask producer

Their attempts to replace the proflex haven't been so great. They need to improve the proflex design, not try and get rid of it.

They just need to put a better way to change the lenses on the flexes. Other than that I can't think of much to change.

This would be nice

They have tried to shrink down the wide profile, this hasn't worked.
I think people like the proflex for two reasons
1. It breathes well and is very comfortable
2. You can smoke a cigarette while playing

I've seen that mask everywhere, so it seems like it represents the sport pretty well. Very iconic as a universally recognized paintball mask.

Should definitely be rap4, definitely says a lot about how paintball is a non-violent sport and wishes to distance itself from actual war.

Pro flex for sure. You can demonstrate how goggles started off as just the goggles, then evolved into the the full face protection we have today.

Agreed on all counts - the pro flex.

JT's been around long enough to show some evolution of the sport.

I don't use them because lens changes are a pain and I like to remove my lens after every day where I take a mask shot to clean it properly, but I have to admit that it is the icon of paintball.
