Profilers, found at Actionvillage, *all pics now of me other than mirrored lenses*

Got them for $68, i know what your thinking right now,
"Oh my good golly gosh, why would i spend that much just for a mask"
well lets go over the most important things in paintball
#1. your mask, without it you cant play,

need I go farther?

"ok so i need a mask but why this one"

The Vforce Profilers are arguably one of the the best masks out there. In my opinion they are the best.

Pro's-
#1. if you've ever tryed any Vforce products they are grade "A" nothing better. these goggles are no exeption, there lenses are mached by none.
#1.5 Vforce is soo good they give you two great options for visors, a visor and bounce promoter. they also include a microfiber bag to place your goggles in.
#2. Periphial Vison, If you've ever worn any mask it seems to block your vission at say the temples. this mask has 99% unobstructed view. the only area that might be considered obstructed was the nose because the foam sticks out alittle.
(i dont know if you know how far your eye can look, but that is about as far as you eye will go, you almost cannot tell where the lense ends when your in it.)

#3. Comfort, Very comfortable. I play in your face style of dagger, i need goggles that keep up. these mach, they retain sweat and stay gripped to my face without an annoying chin strap.
#4. Ease of cleaning, very simple, just dont use anything that will scratch the lense, and then dump watter on the rest of the mask
#5. changeing lenses, i have the Proto swich El, its compareable to that. in a diffrent way though, they are slightly difficult the first time you do it,
#6. Bounce, while some masks like the Proflex have a wide area of bounce i was not disapointed by the Profiler. it has a middle section that is verry apt to get you bounces along with flexable ears that i have gotten bounces on also.
#7. Low profiler (speaks for itslef)
#8. looks, these things, in my oppinion, look really really good!
*not myn*
Posted Image
#9. Fogging, all Vforces already come with unmached supperiour anti-fog lenses so this is a no contest, infact ignore this, if your getting the Profiler you never have to worry about foggage.
#10. audio quality. some masks you cant hear a thing and you get an "echoy" feeling like your talking to yourself. the Profiler has good vents near the mouth that angle backwards so that the sound escapes easyer, so you can be heard around the whole feild.

Con's
#1. Price, i really dont think that $68 for never haveing to buy another mask, never haveing to worry about fogging is a worthy "Con" but all the same....
#2. Some people dont like how low of a profiler it is, like it doesnt protect your neck, i dont notice, i dont care, if you want neck protection get a neck protector.
Posted Image
Notice how your chin might get hit when yelling, i dont mind, i like it
#3. Big lenses, that means if you get shot in the goggles, you proabably got hit in the lense,
#4. Not a big problem with me but some complain that when you yell or yawn you could get hit in the mouth, or chin, at full extention of my jaw it would be hard but here's a pic.
Posted Image
i give this mask a 9/10 (because it cant aim for you :) )
The only other goggles that compare- Proflex, E-vents, Proto Axis (or I3)
if you dont have a profiler, well what do you have then?
Im open to questions about this great product!

i know what you mean,

i was looking at this mask or the Flex 8 (when it first came out) and i was going to get it and right as i hit pay now, they said it was out of stock,
so i think it was fate that i got the Profiler,
i think god was saying "GET THE PROFILER YOU......",

or it was just luck :) , im glad i got the Profiler!,

Oh for comparison, MUCH bigger view than the Proflex

The Profiler is sweet but the V-Force Armor mask is junk. I agree with everything else though. Wish I could afford the Profiler. Stupid empty wallet. :P

Same here. I had an Armor, but switched ti a JT X-fire because I didn't have much money and it came in Olive drab, but I wish I had saved that little bit more and got a Profiler.

I ordered the profilers a while ago and it is very reassuring that this is a quality product.But it's backordered so I've been waiting for about 12 days now <_<

I just bought my profilers off of actionvillage.com not too long ago and finally got to take them out today. Long past when my old JT's would have fogged up these amazing goggles were still crystal clear. Any sniper MUST be able to see whats going on. I would definetely reccomend buying them. BTW, i got the "reverse color" green and black ones. :D There so cool.

While I don't own a pair personally (I have the VForce Sheild, which is a Profiler with a larger mask), but have worn these a few times when friends weren't playing. I must say, if I didn't have the Shield, I'd be getting these. I second everything PBGhost said in his first post, including the smaller size (Which is a con for my big head :o ).

They are comfortable, WILL NOT FOG (I used them in 75% humidity, 85 Degree weather 24 Hour game....no fog...ever).

If you've been wearing a $20 mask and fogging, BUY THESE! YOU WILL LOVE YOURSELF LONG TIME!

9/10
-1 For smaller size (I like the bigger mask, so this is just one mans small opinion)

it was made for begginers a cheap alternative to get into the sport, (i own two, makeing me twice the noob!) and they have good coverage.

I played when it was raining like crazy (in about one minute all my clothes were completely soaked) no fog even then. It was a pretty short game though....

Good review. I am thinking of getting one of these for myself. I have a lot of wants, but not so much a lot of money. When I do get a new mask I m going to consider this type. Thanks for the review, I read it over carefully and it seems like a very good mask, possibly the best you can buy.

I am not too sold on the masks deflection though, because the only two times I have hit somebody in the mask who had one, the paint broke. That is only two times though, and 1 deflection out of 10 would be pretty good in my book. I will report back if things on tht front change at all.....

Yeah I have a Profiler and I love it. While playing today I had someone tell me they tried to get one straight from vforce and they discontinued them. I know you can still buy them from other places but that sucks if they quit making them. Anyone heard of this?

I love my Profilers, easily the best paintball investment I ever made, wouldn't play without em' (well I would, but I wouldn't like it). I've always had problems with EXTREAM fogging playing paintball, I sweat a lot so that's probably why, but these things won't fog at all no matter how hard or long I play. If you have the cash to burn do yourself a favor and buy these, they work amazingly well and look good too =)
