Hey I was going to buy a mask and I was wondering which I should buy from. Both look great but I want to know whats really the better company to buy from.

Shipping is 10 times faster, they have better customer service, they have more and different selections, they are cheaper, and their quality is better. Shane and its yes I have both and am much happier with CFX! Shane this time.

We have gone over this many times, both companies offer great, durable products that will only enhance your event. CFX has a product that is geared for a scene in a Haunt where as SPFX is the mask that you could wear to commit a crime, get caught on video and still get away with it.

I would also like to comment on SPFX customer service, I have called numerous times and have Never had a problem speaking directly with Rusty.

CFX has introduced a mask that is matched with Dark Raven Studios Vine Creatures witch will create a great scene at Haunts this season.

SPFX is the Originator of the silicone higend mask. Rusty has continued to bring a product that blurs the lines of what you are seeing and is now introducing Chompers for your teeth to bring the mask more to life.

Hope this helps...

Seeing both up close yesterday at Netherworld, I'd have to say they both look really impressive. The SPFX mask looked really large and the actor in it was a little hard to understand because the mask gave him a "muttered lisp". They had wayyy more CFX masked creatures floating around and must I say, they were amazing! The "doll face" mask was really cool and the actress was GREAT. I've never been more convinced to try silicone masks then after seeing them up close. I'm going to buy CFX for our haunt next season!!

Yeah I was looking at both and SPFX looks great but they look like they may be a tad big. The CFX did look a bit tighter on the face. Im probably going to get a custom IMP mask from CFX to look more like a vampire. I really did like the imp mask. Very dynamic on what you can make out of it

Just got my CFX Imp this morning, and it is great. It is very easy to put on and take off, it is light weight, and it is comfortable to wear. Even though I have a very small neck and a big head, it fits me great, no bunching up, no extra space in the head and nothing poking me in the eyes. The movenment is great and very realistic. It has nose and ear holes, and the inside of the mask is smooth with all of the reinforcements being inside of the silicone. The paint job is not as detailed as SPFX, however I will be using it to walk around at night, and inside my attraction, so in my case this isnt really an issue. It looks great, feels great, and I cant wait to get this thing into action!

Nice! I was also debating on either buying whipstitch or imp... I dont know... So many to pick its frustrating! Does anyone have a whip stitch or meatbag? Pics would be nice of somone wearing it

The Imp is much more versatile, and would fit in to many different themes. The whipstich and the meatbag mask are great, but the imp fits in almost anywhere!

Yeah your right, I dont care for the yellow so much, The flesh color really adds dynamic ideas to it :)

Here are some pics of me in front of the famous Hawthorne Hotel in downtown Salem Ma tonight at the Haunted Happenings kick off parade in my new CFX Imp Mask. I took about 100 pictures with people at the parade, one lady even asked me to hold her baby so she could snap a photo! I am really happy with this mask. Its really great!

Yeah thats a nice costume, I was thinking of getting a flesh colored Imp with blood splattered all over the face, I was going to wear a leather jacket with a blood stained T and use a Screamline Sledgehammer, Kind of morph my own character, A psychotic demon of some sort :D
