I am 13 years old 6' tall and weigh 120 pounds and I'm having a hard time deciding which would be a better choice I'm not big I'm around normal shape and size for height.

Jt Proflexes. They breath the best and are the most customizable. I love mine and they are cheaper also....

It is kind of hard to hear out of Profits. You can cut a little foam from where your ear hole sits on the foam and it will help a lot.

I'll probably get the profits and my friend was wondering to he is 5' 5" 13 years old and weighs 150 pounds hes kinda big chest up what would be good for him?

And are the default lenses that are darker above and clear on bottom good lenses for paintball in Texas weather?

It really all depends on your face shape. You must try them out your self because each mask fits differently. For example, i wear i4s because they fit nice and i have a small face. Sly profits don't breath well from what ive heard and condensation occurs in the mouth area.

Yah i like the look of the i4s and all, i was looking at the cubix cyan i4s and adding a mirror lense are the mirror lense good for bright texas weather?

Yea I have a pair of i4s and just last week I got a ball in the chin! Haha it really doesn't hurt that bad though! Plus I don't care what anyone says i4s look way better than Profits.

The i4's and the SLy both have the chin issue sadly. If you want more chin protection, Proflex or Profiler.

Yes a mirror lense would be perfect. You won't have the sun in your eyes that much and your gonna have swag on the field.

I love my i4's and mirror lens.
Even though my chin sticks out a little when I talk, I never get shot there.

i have the collectors edition I4's and while the gold mirror is cool it will scratch and wear extremely easily with use. and no, it's not going to give you swag. it's just a nice looking "show off" piece of equipment.

Sly Profits are bad because:
- they're overpriced
- hard to breathe in them
- they are heavy for a modern mask (you can actually feel them pulling down on your face)
- they don't offer much protection (getting shot in the jaw is common while wearing profits)
- the foam wears out fast (my foam is crazy glued in place)
- they're hot, very very hot, unless your playing in the snow it will be uncomfortable
- its hard to hear when your wearing profits, many times people have bunkered me because i couldn't hear them coming
- Fogging, slys fog worse then my $40 invert helix did

so yeah, i suggest you do not waste your time with sly profits.
E-Vents, I4's, Proflex / E-flex, Grillz, etc. anything but sly profits.
hope that helped
