Biggest problem here, lack of soft ears but you can mod them.

Other than that, its a flex, its ftw.

I have a large head and wear glasses fit fine. One small nit pick is whenever you are wearing a smoked lens, the holes from the frames reflect on to your lens. Slightly annoying but wear a visor will make it better.

JT Paintball Flex 8 I liked them, but didn't dig the hard ears and the area around the chin is too slim. When I had a beard, it would get in the way and stick out from the bottom of the mask... Kinda comical

Pros: Fit, Vision, NO FOG
Cons: Price, lense change
I've had a flex 8 since they were released, and one has always remained in my gear bag. It's a great loaner mask, or an easy mask to grab in between matches when you don't have time to clean off the one you were wearing last.

Pros:
Light Weight
Good Vision
They never fog because they use Spectra lenses
Easy Clean up

Cons:
They were originally priced pretty high, but now you can get one sub $50, which makes them a pretty good investment.
The biggest con is changing the lenses. If you've never changed them before, it can be a pain.

Overall, it's a good investment and something worth keeping around for yourself or a buddy.

8/10

Better then the flex 7's if u dont want a ball hitting your face bc the flex 8 is not flexable like the 7. The looks are really good. The ear pads are hard so your ears start to hurt if you wear them for a long period and it doesnt really cover your whole ear so your bottom of your ear sticks out a little, also the vents for air are kinda small, so i noticed on a hot day when u play 2 games in a row its a little hard to breathe so i usually lift the mask a little to get some more air. But besides that its great. I wear a bandana for sweat and a baseball hat to cover the top of my head and the mask fit really well. The chin straps are annoying but i just cut them off, after abt a year the straps arn't holding so well but thats with all masks but when i first got them they fit snug

JT Paintball Flex 8 it is and will always be a great mask, its just tough to find ears for it if you break them, best to buy a whole new mask

This mask has its ups and downs compared to the Flex 7. The appearance of the mask is much better! The profile of the bottoms are slimmer but they are harder therefore you get less bounces. The mask does not have soft ears like the Flex 7 unless you cut the mask and put them on yourself. This mask breathes easily and is just as comfortable if not more than the Flex 7. I modded my mask to have soft ears and I like it MORE than my Flex 7 just because of it's appearance.
