My echo 20/20s have been worn pretty hard.
I rarely seem to have trouble with fogging and I usually leave the fan turned off since the buzzing is too loud.
I had a pair of 20/20s with a hard mask and the fan got really quiet once I took it apart and made sure any plastic burs were plucked off the parts, and replaced the battery. After that I lost the hard bottom ones, and picked up the new pair with soft mask.

So far this new pair would be near perfect if I just tinker with the fan like I did with my last pair. but I've been a bit lazy.
One thing I liked about the soft bottoms is they seem to bounce more shots.
The down side is the tinted lenses mean I need to pull out my spare JT's for night play.

Yeah, just depends on how badly. Even though I'm a major sweat hog, the only time my mask (JT Thermal) has ever really badly fogged was in winter play with sub freezing temps. Otherwise they have treated me well.

I have yet to have fog issues with the thermal lenses on my Avatars, and I sweat enough to have killed the antifog on 2 single pane lenses. I personally have no intention to ever buy a mask that doesn't have thermal lenses as an option.

Does anybody have recommendations for a smaller mask? I'm still pretty young, and so most masks are extremely oversized for me. For example, I got a JT mask a long time ago(don't remember the name), and it made me look like a bobble head, and the strap was way too big. I had to wrap the strap around a lego wheel I had lying around for it to fit, and even then it would keep on sliding off. I hated it. I was looking at the save phace mask, since a lot of adults say it's too small for them.

The other alternative would be to try a JT Elite mask...just make sure you get thermal lenses.

anything with a good quality thermal lense is a good choice. Go with what you like the styling and pricing of. I bring several masks with me to the field, i have owned a lot of masks and besides some of my big headedness causing comfort issues i have been impressed with all my "higher end" masks.

I realy like the proflex masks, but JT lenses are a paing to get the lense out of until the frames are good and broken in, as well as your fingertips. i also realy like Grillz they are very comfy, and lense removal is easy, the profilers are the same way.

I just try to replace the lenses ofter, like once a year and as long as i stick with getting new lenses regularly, i never have a fog issue. Usualy sweat is the issue, but i cnahge masks a lot.
