whatever is most comfortable. don't skimp on it though it's the most important piece of equipment

Save up for a mask. No one should half a** on a mask as you WILL regret it. For a smaller face, go check out dye i4's. Bigger face, sly profits are good. Those are just size suggestions but you could use either no matter what. A lot is just personal preference.

I understand your situation. If you HAVE to buy a cheap mask get these they are a great mask for the price and overall, I think they are as good as some of the more expensive mask.

Do not spend less than 50 dollars. Go somewhere that you can try something on if at all possible.

Well I'd rather be comfortable enough not to have the urge to take my mask off during a game. This way I might not have quite as nice of paintball gun right away but I still got two eyes! Lol
I suggest profexes if your on a budget. I wouldn't suggest buying used. Like everyone else said don't skimp.

Spend the most money on a mask and essentially equipment. Make sure you look for visibility, breath-ability, comfort and of course style. Make sure to get the mask you like. It boggles my mind people buy something for cheap and it either breaks or they don't like it and then they go out and buy something else for cheap rather then just buying the "expensive" thing the first time around. Always buy the best, or atleast the best of what you can buy.

My friend uses a Profiler. He says it's a very good mask. At it's price, $25 cheaper than most masks.. If you have abit of a bigger head, I'd actually just tool around on ANSgear all the time. They have Daily Sales and you could really get a good deal on a mask there.

I personally have used the E-Vent and the Profit. I enjoy both. I love my Profit to death, but the Profiler is a good Budget Baller mask.

empire vidar and vforce profilers are both really good masks and even cheaper one would be the vforce pro vantage or sly anex7

sounds like wayne brady is gonna have to choke a bitch.

dye I4s, sly profits, grillz, or e-flex. seriously even if you dont have a lot of cash having a great mask is critical.
