Looking to buy a new mask. Wondering what everyone's opinion is.
Need a mask that will allow me to sight down my marker when using a red dot/scope (about to invest in First Strike for my T9) so in other words the lower the profile and the more flexible, the better.

Never used E vents, but my grill was one of my favorite masks I have ever owned. Super comfy, and never fogged.

For using a sight. Try a Flex. They work great. Otherwise, my Grill works well for looking down red dots.

Well the vents are going to be the smaller of the two...But not As flexible as some of the others... vents are slender and flexible on the sides of your chin. Mine have never fogged and I play in Louisiana heat lol. I shoot my ion kinda tilted to look down the barrel and I can put it right up to my face and the mask gives way when I want to go closer. They are also intimidating :happy:

To who? Four year olds with a complex about masks?

in a grills vs e vent the only thing to do is see if you can try both on. I have owned both, started with the e vent then traded for a grill. The grill is great, but your chin feels very exposed. the e vents are good but i didn't think there was enough ventilation in the mouth. another mask to consider is the i4. it won't flex but it is one of the smallest masks on the market

I forgot all about the i4 when I was replying and I agree with you they definintly are really small

i use to have the grillz but for this season i decided to go with the events. the grillz are awesome. i never had any problems with fogging whatso ever even onthe crazy humid days they were good to go. the lens is a bit small though and they kinda stick out off your face. they dont feel like there right up against your face, so its just personal preference for fitment. only one visor.
events, love them! huge lens, great fitment lil closer to the face i think, not as close as i4's but pretty close. the new soft ears are really nice, the older ones i heard tore like crazy and were just junk. comes with 2 visors, which is a plus baseball cap style and just a reg. vertical style, both of which are nice if you like the whole visor bit, my thoughts, double up on a head band :rolleyes:
try them both on and see what you think.

Events are. hard, ugly, less vision.

Grills are hawt, comfy, soft, flexible, badbutt, great vision.
