100% agree. Masks are completely preference. It would be like a man telling a woman which shoe is best. He wouldn't know about girls shoes so he goes with Mens shoes. Stupid! So I would say go to a paintball pro shop or something and try both on if they have them, then decide for yourself. And if they don't have both of them, go to some place like ANSgear; look at the items, scroll down to the reviews and then compare reviews. That is the best thing to do in my opinion. Another thing you can do is go to your local paintball field and just ask people that have them what the like about them. Most people here are biased because they own the masks they are vouching for. Which is completely normal, for instance I would probably tell you to buy the Profits because I have them. Then I would tell you hy you should buy them. You would think oh that's a great mask I'' buy that one. But then, another guy will come in and say to buy the i4's and tell you why to buy them. SO you see it's all preference. Comfors, breathability, vision, fogging, those kind of things are what I would look for in a mask.
I have a crapy VS2 that a friend gave me. 12 oz co2, Shake and shoot loader, VForce Profilers, and a vest the has a 2+1 on the back. I will be upgrading my Spyder then selling/trading for a blitz. Have a 49/45 on the way, same with Invert Too, nXe elevation pod pack, and JT Team Series Tournament Pants. When I go with my friend I can use his Ego7 and Ninja 68/45 and Rotor. He has a DM9 with same tank same loader.
