I believe they are. Probably just production prototypes they are wearing.

so far all ive seen is the white on the ears. Unless my eyes are playing tricks on me, bc even the ones at West point today looked white.

Not sure if you have been following the news, but there was no empire booth at the event. Only the players had these on them. They were not for sale, a couple people asked.

A little much for a mask?? Are you for real? The mask is hands down the most important piece of gear you wear when ballin'. I would pay top dollar for a mask that is comfortable, good vision/breathability. I will pay a premium to protect my vision. If $110 is to rich for you then you should just get the $20 Wal-Mart mask.

I think you blew that a bit out of proportion.

To me there is no such thing as paying too much for eye protection. I mean that is what keeps your face protected. One shouldn't be cheap when choosing goggles.

they were at the west point game... they had two pair, a green one and a black one. i tried them on, they felt good. not as keen on the looks of them in person, but i think the og flex bottoms would fix that. the foam was more like pro-flex foam than event foam. very nice. and they breath so much better than the event. definitely psyched to get my hands on these once the pre-orders start dropping. VP of empire sales was there, he said that they set the release date for june 1, but that they should be shipping the first pre-orders to customers mid may, so long as the shipments get delivered to the US on time and make it through customs easily.

the e-flex bottoms felt cheaper and looked kinda ugly on the mask.

the black ones had black and grey ear pieces. not white. i doubt they will come with white earpieces.

Anyone know if the soft ears are interchangeable between the new and old masks? Cause that is the main reason I would want one of these, to get rid of the old foam pieces of junk.

The proflex, grill, and profiler are all top of the line, comfortable, stylish, and offer top notch protection. They are all under 80 dollars. 110 is excessive. Don't be so dramatic.

And I will probably still buy a pair as long as they dont look like crap in person. I wish they would just sell the frame. I'm switching that ugly bottom out for a flex bottom as soon as I get mine.

proflex - crappy ear pieces, slower/harder lens change system, lens isnt as wide if im not mistaken

profiler/grill - you'll need to drop another $25 on a dual pane lens, ears aren't as comfortable, plus the breathing/voice projection on the eflex (and regular flex) is probably better.

and it's pretty close in price to the sly profit/i4, so imo $110 isn't that unreasonable compared to the competitors

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
