IMHO simply the best mask for playing is the Technisub Falco



Low profile with fantastic field of view all most at 170 degree's wide.

What's your fave and why?

Technisub Sphera




Ups:
It has great peripheral vision, is light on the face and very hydrodynamic through the water.
Think they are relatively cheap --- 12 to 15 range I think

Downs:
The lens is curved and takes a little getting used to (ok when used to it though)
The lenses are easily popped out (too easily and is a nuisence if happens as is fidley to reset.
The mask frame is also thin and therefore fragile, especially on the outer side walls - many players who use this mask have these walls snapped - it is easily remedied with insulating tape and this actually helps firm up the walls whilst maintaining the overall light ans flexible structure these masks have.

info just for contemplations

... IMHO, dont use the spheras.

not if you value your face. they offer no protection from kicks, or pucks in the face, and often the puck or a heel will drive the light mask frame into your face causing bad cuts.

perfect recipe for lots of black eyes and scars.

cheerio.

oh, instead, use anything low volume with wide angle of vision, with fixed clips, nothing fancy that will break, and if you can, buy a webbing mask strap. made of nylon, like seatbelts. otherwise mask comes off heaps.
