[quote name='fatmike' post='555631' date='Aug 2 2009, 12:38 PM']what upgrades can i get for my viewloader high voltage?[/quote]

Not familiar with the loader, sorry.

The High Voltage is a gun. Very beggining gun. It takes Spyder thread barrels, but aside from that you can't do much to it.

No, I'm pretty sure the youngest is 12 at OSG and even then you have another year ahead of you.

From what I know about the mask, they are good enough. Thermal lens is a big plus in any mask. As to being able to breathe, it does not look to be any worse than the Events, especially the ZN's. About the same amount of porting for breathing. Two local shops sell them, one shop told me that they are crap, and when they do finally sell out of them, they will never order them again. The other shop said that they are okay, but also said that they will not order any more of them in when they do finally sell out of them.

I do have a problem with the representatives for the company that were posting on PbN (When they had their own forum). They would say some of the more BS crap that I have ever seen, and their sponsored players would back them up, 100%. I can't remember everything that they said, but one thread comes to mind. I watched it in earnest, as my business partner posted in it a bit. It went like this:

Save Phace rep tells a story about how he went to a recent NPPL or PSP tournament (Not Cup, either of them) and had been talking to some paintball rep who said something to the effect of: "Most, if not all, of the paintballs used in America, and specifically at this tournament, came from overseas." Said rep never did inform anyone of who this paintball rep was, or even posted in the thread again after his initial outrageous post.

Yes, the sponsored players were backing this up completely, finding companies over in Taiwan, China, Vietnam, or whatever other Asian country that they could find, that claimed to make paintballs, and maybe even sell them. This had gone on for a few pages until my partner stepped in. He not only quoted from companies like ProCaps, RPS, and one other, where they made their paintballs (Like Clearwater, FL, or up in Canada in the case of ProCaps), but he linked to where he got the information. The sponsored players tried to argue with him, but they knew that they were in a losing battle, and finally gave up.

It's because of this kind of stupidity and desire to stir things up, that I don't care for Save Phace as a company. When I was in Michigan, Indiana, and Illinois about a month ago, I decided to stop in to a Bass Pro Shops, since it was one of the big advertisers listed with the Save Phace company website. I looked around, and could not find a Save Phace mask, paintball or otherwise (They started making them for bass boat fishermen, ATV riders, and claim for military forces stationed overseas), anywhere.

Personally, I think that you can find a better mask than a Save Phace, bounce crap or not.

Wow. Thanks. I think I'll get one then see if it's worth it. I mean why not. Thanks everybody for your input and putting up with my noobiness.

I'm not worried about fogging seeing as im getting a thermal lens. I also hate bouncing. I just want to know how hard it is to breathe in them.

Waaiiitt?You play tourny paintball and you hate bouncing?Have you EVER played in a tourny before?

Yes I have played tournament. I just don't think bounces are fair.
I would also be getting it for 50$ with thermal lens.
