3 Tips for New Paintball Goggles | Paintball Mask
[Mark] No, like you said just something small, stay as far to the outside edge as possible.
[Mark] So it doesn't end up in your line of sight and be super careful.
100%. Extremely careful. All you're doing, if you absolutely have to use a tool and you don't wanna take the lens completely out to do you know what I just did here with this one, be extremely careful. Start very small until you can get a little edge and then pull it off with your hand.
[Mark] And I'd recommend take the lens out anyway 'cause it's good to know how to do it on your goggle.
100%. So that would be a recommendation. Take the lens out if you absolutely don't know how, you think you can't use a tool but be extremely careful.
[Mark] I've only see the Bunker King's one 'cause that one's almost clear.
This one. Yeah, this is a Virtue VIO Ascend here and you guys can obviously see that, that small square, yeah, square shouldn't be there. You know there's something on the inside of the goggle almost every single manufacturer depending on what goggle you have, they have a protective film on it. So just make sure that you have that taken off before you go out to play. Like I said, we do receive a lot of phone calls about that. Lens is scratch it's bubbly, blah, blah, blah, make sure 100% to peel the film off. And while speaking of that, Mark, maybe zoom in, I don't know, this area, that area, whatever works better. Make sure you are never touching the double layered foam. We've also had people that wanna appeal this entire inner parameter out. Yeah. That's the Dual Pane thermal lens. You don't wanna do that. So I would highly recommend not that, just make sure you've got enough to get that protective film taken off. I brought this one out too, Mark, just so we could show them. This one is the Dye i5 lens. So this one also has, once I get it out of here, a protective film. It might not look like it 'cause it's not as clear or not as foggy or bubbly as this one was. But Mark, from your point of view does that look like there's a film on there?
Not really. Okay guys, there is a film on here. So like I said, this one's clear. Start from the top edge and you wanna go very carefully and you're gonna peel that film off. So I'm not gonna take this one all the way off, but yes take it off. Make sure you guys can see out there on the field.
[Mark] And if you're having trouble with one side, just stop and flip it, go from the other angle. Because sometimes it's heat sealed to the lens.
True. And you just gotta be careful once again, guys these lenses are expensive so it's not something you wanna just hack and scratch at. You might have to look once, twice maybe even three times to make sure it's not on there. Or you can catch just the top corner to get it off. Number two, lenses. Going back to that, we'll throw that one back out there. This one, you guys got a brand new goggle, got the film off. We've already crossed that path. If you guys are in sunny areas I mean Texas, California, Florida, stuff like that. You might wanna go with like a tinted lens something like this just to keep the sun a little bit of that extra sun out of your eyes. You guys are in places like us here in Michigan, you might wanna get an HD lens or a clear lens. 'Cause we're not always super sunny here so I would recommend depending on the area where you guys are playing there's lenses all across the board, clear, HD, mirrored, smoked. If you wanna keep cool you wanna look classy and stylish. You get some of the mirrored looking stuff here. So getting a proper lens for your style of play or where you normally play at is extremely important. 'Cause I've been in areas, holy smokes. It's really dark if I'm going down in the woods or something let's get an HD lens. Let's brighten things up. Yellow lens will also do the same. If you're playing on like a cloudy day throw a clear lens in there. If you're playing on a super sunny day use one of the fancier mirrored lenses or smoked if that helps you out. Lastly, number three would highly recommend. You've already purchased your expensive goggle, lenses setups. Get yourself a protective case. These cases are not that expensive. They can hold extra parts in the front and they will also keep your expensive goggle from getting smashed, getting scratched. You're gonna want a protective case. This one is the goggle case. It's gonna fit that. If you guys do have extra lenses here this one is meant to be a lens case strictly only. Hold extra clips maybe some extra straps upfront and then you can actually obviously, store multiple lenses on the inside of the case. It does come with protective microfiber layers in here. So you wanna store two, three, four lenses in here. Just make sure you have a barrier with these separate cloths and layers on the inside. That's just a real quick video on the top three things we would recommend when you bought yourself a brand new goggle. First off, you gotta be able to see out of it, take the film out. Second off, change the lenses up to your style if you need to do that. And lastly, get yourself a nice case to keep them protected. Mark, would you like to have any closing thoughts?

[Mark] I do have a question from the YouTube. So let me just pull it up again.
[Mark] Lyfted_image wants to know what kind of barrel upgrades should he get for his m3s.
So the m3 barrel upgrades? I mean, I don't know if you're trying to stick with Dye or trying to head on over to like a Freak XL Autococker Threaded system but I would recommend that. In general, not gonna say Freak or Dye or whatever just make sure you have the correct backed bore size for whatever paint you're shooting in your area. Whether it be a six-eight-one, six-eight-four, six-eight-seven. Make sure you're shooting paint that fits that back bore size. That's the most important.
[Mark] There you go. You got a question, leave it in the comments below and maybe we'll pick you randomly otherwise we'll see you.
