If you’ve never been hit in the face with a paintball you’ll never value the protection a great paintball mask offers you. The sting of the paintball hitting your face is something you won’t forget lightly, neither is the pain of having to exit the game while you were still enjoying it.
Today, I want to review one of the best paintball masks on the market. One I know you will fall in love with due its rugged fierce looks and its practicality on the field.
It’s called the V-Force Grill and it has featured in many world tournaments and even helped a few teams clinch the title.
If you are on the hunt for a paintball mask that has a very good field of view, handles fogging very well, and is light and comfortable, then you are definitely looking for the V-Force Grill. But then I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s take this review step by step so that you can fully appreciate this wonderful (and intimidating) paintball mask for what it truly is.
When it comes to paintball masks, very few manage to offer the protection and value that the V-Force Grill does. Let’s take a closer look at it, shall we?
If there is one factor that is important in a paintball mask, it’s how it looks – especially from your opponents point of view. The best paintball masks have an element of intimidation, and the V-Force Grill measures up very well in that department.
If you are looking for the fear factor, you’ll definitely find it in the V-Force Grill.
But just because it’s an intimidating paintball mask doesn’t disqualify it from the good looks competition because it does look good, very good. The V-Force Grill is a very well designed mask and definitely built to match with high-quality materials that make it a very durable mask.
For its good and yet intimidating looks, the V-Force Grill earns a 5/5 rating from me. It definitely has the wow factor.
Because it is made from high-quality materials, especially the foam, the V-Force Grill is a very comfortable paintball mask, one of the best in the comfort departments if I may say so. The V-Force will feel so natural you’ll even forget that you are wearing a mask, the lightweight materials (soft composite plastic) make sure of that. Even after wearing it for a long time, it won’t make your face feel dull and heavy as is the case with other paintball masks.
Because it’s such a comfortable mask that doesn’t put any strain on your face, the V-Force grill earns itself a 5/5 in my books. This is one paintball mask you really need to consider adding to your equipment.
When it comes to vision, the V-Force Grill outshines many paintball masks on the market. Featuring a large lens with a very wide angle of view, it gives you the ability to see everything around you without having to turn your head. This gives you a great tactical advantage as many paintball masks have poor views and most players have to turn their bodies in order to be able to take in the entire scene of the game. This puts you at a disadvantage as you become a clear target.
When wearing the V-Force Grill in a game, it gives you a pleasurable experience as it is very easy to breathe in it. And when you sweat, the foam quickly sucks in the sweat, making you feel as fresh as you did when you stepped into the game.
And because the lens are thermal lenses, they don’t cloud up even in humid and wet conditions – no need to worry about losing your vision due to fogging as long as you are donning the V-Force Grill paintball mask.
And the best part of the V-Force Grill is the fact that changing out the lens is very simple and takes less than a minute, making them a game-saving unit when the heat of the battle is on and you need a fresh set of lenses in your paintball mask. This is one area in which many other paintball masks fall flat on their face as they don’t have an efficient swop-out mechanism like the V-Force Grill. If there is one factor that should move you to get the V-Force Grill, it is this one.
Because the V-Force delivers when it comes to giving you the best possible experience a paintball mask can give, it scores another 5/5.
Another great feature of the V-Force Grill is the ease of customization. Each part of the V-Force Grill can swopped out for another and you have a wide selection of colored thermal lenses to choose from. And as I already said, swopping the lenses is a very easy job that won’t take you more than a minute. Customizing the V-Force Grill is so easy you can change your look mid game as you can easily replace your foam padding, your lens, your strap, and even the foam on your ears.
If that is not a bonus, I don’t know what is. The ease of customization means you can create a different mask whenever you want to, and in my books, that definitely warrants a 5/5 score.
The V-Force Grill has a menacing front grill that serves more purpose than just creating a fierce looking paintball mask. The grill is a great ventilation feature that allows for free flow of air so as to make it easy for you to breathe and to keep the temperature in the mask moderately low. With superb ventilation like this, the game may as well go on and on as you won’t have any problems breathing.
The ventilation also allows for great acoustics within the mask. No echoes or ringing in your ears when you shout. Sound travels well in and out of the mask, meaning you will hear clearly and when you speak, your voice won’t be muffled at all – it will be loud and clear.
For its great ventilation that doubles as a menacing look, the V-Force Grill earns another 5/5.
Now comes the big question concerning paintball masks – the protection question. The V-Force Grill gives you the best protection hands down. The combination of semi-rigid and softer rubber used to make the V-Force are the best materials to offer complete protection from the sting of a paintball when it is properly placed smack in the middle of your face. Not only does the V-Force protect you from stinging paintballs, but the soft rubber also encourages paintballs to bounce off without exploding, giving you a chance to remain in the game.
Although the V-Force has a small profile, it must not be dismissed as inadequate protection as it covers the entire face, especially with the visor in place. The visor is meant to protect from the sun’s rays and from the rain but in many instances, it has also provided extra protection from paintballs.
With the V-Force Grill, you have the confidence to play your game to the best of your abilities knowing that you are well covered, and for that, the V-Force Grill gets a 5/5 for protection.
Another big factor that determines the rating of anything is whether it offers value for money. We all want our purchases to give us value for our hard earned money, no matter what the purchase may be. The same stands for paintball masks. I’m sure you don’t want a paintball mask that will fall apart on you after only a few months of use. And that is where the V-Force Grill will make you smile.
The V-Force Grill masks come with a limited one-year warranty. This means you have the liberty to try out the mask for a whole year and work out any issues you may have with it. Because this mask is well made and that from durable materials you probably won’t have any problems with it. This is truly a value for money mask, and truth be told, it will definitely prove its worth on the battlefield.
It’s not easy finding a deal as good as this one, especially as you only have to spend $99.95 to protect your face with this fabulous paintball mask that is the V-Force Grill.
Value for money? Definitely. The V-Force is worth every penny you spend on it, whether the initial purchase or any other add-ons you may want to purchase to enhance its looks and practicality. Though the V-Force Grill may be pricier than other paintball masks on the market, consider the value that it adds to your game. Because of the value factor, the V-Force gets a well-deserved 5/5.
I hope by now you have seen that the V-Force Grill is a great investment towards a successful paintball career. This versatile mask not only gives you more than adequate protection but it also makes you look awesome on the paintball field. That alone gives you the confidence to play the best game of your life every time you step out into the field. This is truly an all-round paintball mask that does not disappoint in the least.
