proflex comes with a dual pane lens. I'm sorry if the proflex has some features you arent crazy about. That doesn't make it a compromise on protection.

I'm glad someone mentioned dual pane Vforce lenses though. It was my understanding that Vforce had some sort of coating that prevented fogging? Now I'm seeing dual pane lenses for sale? I've owned 5 or 6 vforce masks, I currently still have 2. Always had a single pane lens, never had a single one fog, and I play in Florida/Bama/Mississippi/Georgia

If $109 is too much wait for the black Friday sale.

All I want is the frame and lens.

I think itd be smart on empires part to sell the pieces. Even if frames were 60 or 70. Id much rather just buy that then the full price on the mask, when I want to use my old bottoms anyway.

You're getting one of the best lens designs in the industry, with one of the best most popular masks with backward computability. Why would you not be willing to pay that price? I4s are $100+? They are all over the place. I have a few of them. You will save your money in one season buy not having to buy lenses all the time. There are plenty of masks that are over priced but this is not one. I just want more color choices or at least be able to mix and match with the new design bottoms.

well, for one, I dont need the ugly bottoms. I said the FRAME for 60-70, not the whole mask.

I don't own an I4. I've never paid 100+ for a mask. I have 4 flexes, an I3 pro, a grill, and a profiler. If I want an awesome quick change lens system I have my Vforce masks. If I want style and comfort, I have my flexes. I'll save money by wearing what I have. What do you mean not having to buy lenses all the time? I've been using the same lens in my flex for 3 years or more. What mask are you using now that requires you to change the lens constantly?

Double Strap Eflex the new way

I have a way to double strap the events / eflex with a design i came up with. When I make a final production piece I will take photos so you all can drool.
This design allows you to see the whole strap all the way around so it will go over the soft ear or new eflex ear piece.

FYI when i started playing we only had goggles. no face plates or ear protection. So please haters, stop crying.

You can just shove a second strap in the vertical slots where the current strap is

Yea i know ive been doing that since 06 when we were sponsered by national and empire. That is sort of common knowledge. This new way has a plastic piece that will hold the second strap. This strap, now read carefully, will be visible all around the entire strap allowing you to see all of the artwork and such, much better. With the old way of doing this you only see about 3" in the back. It will now go over the ear pieces. I hope this clarifies things for you.

Ugly to me. I know flex lenses are a pain in the *** but thats why i got two sets of frames for my clear and smoke lense. Good idea though but just not for me.

It'd be amazing if I could buy just the frame so I could mix and match with a bunch of stuff to make really ugly masks that people on nation would flame... Like an eflex frame with boat bottoms.. proteus bottoms.. Spectra hard bottoms.

(ANSgear prices 4/16, rounded down to make you look smarter)
Proflex price as of today - $62 x 4 = $248
Cheapest vforce mask - $20
Dye i3 - $89

Total - $357

And if you bought all these used, they would have at least been $100 if they were in a set, or around $200. (Again, with prices shown on the BST on here and other forums.)

And if you read the manuals, lenses that are under constant damages (IE, getting planted in the face over and over, as well as cleaned with a high alcoholic cleaner, scratched the hell out of, ect...) should be changed around 3 times a year.

Thanks for being one of those guys who bring PBN down.


That being said, where are all the pictures? I would have assume HUNDREDs would have been out by now. There are only a handful on the nation and Facebook. And vids on them yet?

Yeah. A few proshops are saying early may for a tester/review samples, but I was hoping someone had some sort of hands on look to it, that was also willing to show it.

Agree, I have a pair blue Proflexes that are utterly unusable frame/foam/ear/strapwise. The foam is sticky and gross and coming off, the strap is stretched to hell and unsafe and the ears are tearing. Being able to get just the top half would be nice to get my flexes back up and running, especially with quick change lenses and nicer ears.

...Although not if it's $70 like someone quoted. I have Grillz and a set of i4s I don't need my flexes THAT badly.

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.
