Hello guys!

I'm new here in the forum and found out through all the videos about paintball that Mike shares.
I've learned a lot about the sport, despite playing once a month here in my town.

Because I want to improve in paintball I need to start buying some good equipments, because I only
have access to rented equipments with very low quality. Think abou a mask that fogs more than a mirror
in a hot bath... ehehehe

First of all I want to tell that I live in Brazil and paintball is not much widespread, but has some
speedball fields for practice.

So I came through this post to ask for the help from all paintball player about which mask should I buy,
because I need to know this for sure before paying for the shipment and any taxes on it that my country's
government will charge. I think a mask between $40 and $70 is a good amount to start.

I thought these mask below and i'd like to know what do you think i should buy. Sure you can suggest others
maks that are not on the list, but will be great if you can keep the range of price that I mentioned before.

- V-Force Vantage Pro Mask: Found for $ 42.95
- Proto Switch FS Thermal Paintball Mask: Found for $ 49.95
- JT ProFlex Thermal Paintball Mask: Found for $ 62.95
- JT Flex 8 Full Coverage Paintball Mask: Found for $ 67.95

Thank you in advance to everyone who can help.

Best regards!

ps: sorry anything with my English.

I would personally get the JT ProFlex with the thermal lens but any one of those would be great besides the Flex 8.

The JT proflexes are a great mask.They are only $50 on ANSgear,but I don't know if they ship to brazil.What I would personally suggest you do is get a list of gear you want to purchase(mask,tank,and hopper)and then buying it all to possibly reduce shipping/customs fees/taxes.

I would personally go with the proflex. I love mine and they hold up, and no fog!

Thank you for the help guys!

I'll follow you advice and buy the JT ProFlex.

To be honest i would go with the "- JT ProFlex Thermal Paintball Mask" i have used them before and it had nice comfort and looked nice. That's my opinion on it.
