Default full scuba face mask

does anyone dive with one? a freind of mine does but he is the only one i know of. i really like the idea of it and was wondering if hes the only one. if you do, what brands do you dive and what are the pros/cons of it. what brands does MBT sell also. i will most likely mail mine to them.

I have two types of full face masks (FFMs), an OTS Guardian and a Kirby Morgan SuperMask.

Since a FFM limits your visual field and can be a hassle to deal with in the water, I only dive a FFM when I need to be able to communicate with the boat or a buddy during a dive. So I end up using a FFM for search and rescue tasks and deep diving (over 300' deep). I use the OTS Aquacom communications gear, and can recommend the same setup.

My buddies at the EPA recommended the Guardian, as they use them at work. When I need to use a FFM and will be diving open circuit (regular SCUBA) I use the Guardian. I use the SuperMask when diving a closed circuit rebreather.

I use the ocean reef neptune and I love it. The only con is the limited field of vision.

I have an Aga (interspiro) and they are great. Has the space for coms. Could actually be for sale if someone wanted it.

I have used the guardian and the aga. I like the aga better but the guardian is a good mask for the money. I think they finally worked out all the bugs. Had a few recalls several years ago.
