Personally, I find JT profelexes to be one of the least safe masks in paintball. I am not saying that they wont protect you but compared to the other brands you mentioned, the proflexes offer the least amount of protection.

Watch mikes mask show.

It really depends on your head size, but I use a vForce Grill, and I love it for the ventilation and ease of cleaning. If you get one however, I suggest wearing the visor at all times, getting shot in the forehead repeatedly without one isn't much fun... Also, don't bend/stretch/deform the mask frame, as we've had issues with lenses sometimes falling out because the deformed frame no longer holds the lens properly (Thankfully, no accidents have occured thus far). The Grill is a great mask, as long as you take good care of it - but really, you should be doing that with all your gear, shouldn't you? :)
