Did not see a section for masks. I found this site, and did not see any negative reviews, other than for the cheaper masks. I plan on getting the Carbon Fiber upgrade, with the polycarbonate lens.

here is a link, tell me what you guys think. If any of you have had experience using CBA masks, let me know. I have a great mask right now, but this one is just cool.

With the caveat that I've been out of the scene for a while, I'd be pretty damned hesitant to be buying a paintball mask from some guy in Thailand  I've never heard of. The lenses in your mask have pretty stringent safety standard they have to meet. I imagine that those are not enforced in some guys Thai basement.

I thought that too. If the lenses are polycarbonate as advetrtised, then they would be more impact resistant than standard masks, as poly is used in ballistic eyewear and can withstand an impact up to 600fps.

I would be willing to bet that you would be disappointed in the field of view with those at the price you would be paying. Even if I had the money to spend, I wouldn't spend it on that. I'd put my money to more useful things or paint.

Standard mask lenses ARE polycarbonate. What's more, they're required to meet ASTM standards for impact resistance. So, no, they would not be more impact resistant than standard masks.

What flavour lead based paint do they come in?  They look nice, a little scary for me.

You'd certainly strike fear into the hearts of your opponents with those things on.. 
See you on the field!

From the pics, those just scream insufficient venting/fogging problems.
