Question Need help understanding paintball mask frames

Ok I have a JT Elite Raptor... I always see different JT frames on the BST forums... If I want to swap out my frames for another frame instead of the lens, does it have to be a JT Raptor frame? Or all JT frames different? I'm really confused

Buy Flexes. ANS gear has them for $55, and you can mix and match the colors of everything from a selection of parts for that price. I didnt bother looking up "JT Elite Raptor" but I feel like they arent quality...a mask isnt someplace to save a dollar. its your vision it protects.


If you can afford it, the new E-flex just dropped recently.

It looks like they use the Elite lens.

I would invest in a higher quality mask. Once you use one that is higher end you will never look back. Definitely money well spent.

The 2 lines are the spectra lens (off the proflex and the like) and the elite lens (off the mid-low end masks). You would need an elite lens and they are (or at least were) made in thermals. Either way, as has been recommended, just upgrade to a mask with the spectra lens system.

I don't believe so. I think they are completely different lines. I could be wrong though.

No Elite will not work with proflex/spectra lines. Elite are not mid/bottom, they were/are the same level as Spectra, just older tech. Back before Spectras came out the Elite was the top of the line - I used (and still have) my X-fire, which is an Elite goggle with a mask that looks just like the Flex7 (proflex with hard ears). Spectra have larger lenses for more peripheral vision. Elite lenses are still out there, and they made single pane, thermal, amber, mirrored, gradient, blue, and yellow.

The suggestion above was to get a proflex instead of spending time lens searching, or frame searching. I have only ever seen Elite frames in Green and Black. If you decide to go Proflex/Flex7 buy new. The used prices are ridiculously close to new. There is also the new Empire Flex which has the Empire lens system on the Flex7 mask.
