People at my field understand Refs arent targets. I flip the bottom back down when I run to do a paint check then it goes right back up.

I wouldnt play in I4's either. My favorite mask to play in was Grillz. Wish I never got rid of mine. Flex's for reffing/non playing field activities, Grillz for playing.

The ones at my field did too, but me and my friend still got shot more as refs it seems, probably cause we'd get shot more than once per game as opposed to an elimination. Still some of my worst hits have been reffing, like to the back of the neck....

This thread has made me reconsider getting flex bottoms though, i don't want to flip them up, and getting slapped in the lip doesn't sound fun.

Flexs are great masks. I highly suggest them. You can yell perfectly fine with them down. Most of it is the agg effect.

"the agg effect" I've yet to find a decent flex video on YouTube that doesn't have the flex in all kinds of wacky color combinations.

I'm more concerned about the mask hitting you in the lip and stuff. Is it bad, or just more inconvenient?

I do it out of habit....back in Day,,,,I'm showing my age,The cocking rod used to hit it sometime's,,,,I even cut my OG JTs Hard mask in 1'2 down middle so cocking rod didnt smack...As newer rubber bottoms came out we used to fold,,,Also when we used to play in tour they used to take 4 teams out for round robin play during brackets an staging are was right off feild in woods,,We had to keep googles on so we folded so no fogging would happen...Plus guys found they could smoke in pits ..

Its not as bad as it sounds. Most of the time i get bounces off of my mask. Last night I got 4 bounces in one game.

I may look into them then. I've wanted them for a while, but i haven't been able to find a set of lowers with an olive nose. Maybe i'll have to make a WTB here...
