there are two masks that I would recommend to you for something that you can get for cheap.

Dye I4's are extremely small, they may not even cover your chin.

So I would recommend either the e-flex or grillz.
The grillz being the cheaper out of the two, I liked these things about it:
Compact
Good material, fairly strong
Simple lens and mouthguard removal
Good foam
Breathing ability

What I didn't like:
sound projection
Tight feel

Next is the eflex, here's what I liked:
Good sound projection
extremely simple lens and mouthguard removal
easy to find lens
breathing ability
Very open feeling

What I didn't like:
The price

So it's really up to what feels comfortable for you. I went with the eflex because it felt good.

There is a thread floating around that shows how to mod vforce grill visors to fit an i4. Looks pretty badass when done.

I've tried both. I own a spectra and it barely covers my face. Like others have said, the I4 is itty bitty and you could see my jaw and chin easily. I went with a grill for the size and it gives me great coverage. Plus it has a visor if you are into that sort of thing.

My issue with the Grillz was the dip in the front. I always walked off with a horn gorwing from my hairline because innevitably a shot would sneak in.


The Flex 8 is still out there and readily available, those have a HUGE lower portion that extends wider and lower than most on the market. Maybe an E-Flex for better lens with a swapped out Flex 8 Bottom?

^I agree. Forehead shots suck. That's a weakness of all masks I've used though.

I've used almost every popular mask in the last 5 years.

I played one game in a pair of i4s. My friend was saying they're great blah blah blah, so tight, etc. I said "my chin hangs out and if I talk I could literally get shot in in the mouth". Thankfully I didn't but I did take one square on the chin and that was enough for me.

I just ended up selling my EFlex because the black "ring" for the thermal lens. I am picking up some Profits to give a try. I want to like them so bad but the lack of hearing in the older ones scares me away.

At the same time I am going back to a Flex 7. No matter the mask and how well it worked I am always back to my Flex. It's just the go to mask all the time. Very RARELY fogs, it's comfortable, and

I will say that the Grill is the second on my list of masks that I would recommend. Now that they're re-released them there are more lens at places that had stopped carrying them.

The Proto Axis Pros are also a great mask.

I use JT flex 8's right now but will be switching to a V-force Profiler eventually. The Profiler with a dual lens works great especially with fans and it has a visor too. Only thing that sucks about the profiler is you have to dish out extra money for the dual lens...i think it should come with it for around $75.

Try before you buy if at all possible


.02
SLY ProFit
Fits my chin jawline ok
a little low on the forehead (personally this causes the foam to seat a bit better)
but that is what they make bounce caps etc etc for
