    Have you checked the opacity setting of the layer?

    Yup i sure have. they are set to 100%
    and yet it still is there.....

    Could it be the brush setting? when i use the brush to work on the mask its like its only removing 80%

    you are using Colour: 000000 aren't you, anything other than complete black will also cause this.
