Eflex and Flex8 together without modifying the hard ears

I'll start by admitting, I never owned or really liked Flex8s. But after seeing how cool Sonny Lopez from the Hitmen looked rocking his old school Flex8 in the woods, I decided I wanted one since I've been playing some woods events again. Only problem is, I prefer the Event lenses and I hated the camo Flex8s. They were very woodland and a little silly looking. I just wanted something dirt colored that looked rugged.

Then, when I looked them up, Sonny's goggles even didn't really look how I remembered them. Here's a pic of Sonny wearing his (kneeling) from PbNation's Facebook.



So I roughed up a set of Flex8s just to make the camo look less goofy. Then I was really surprised to see how well they fit on a set of stock Eflexes. No cutting. No modifying. Took 2 minutes to install.



I want a darker strap and possibly some different Empire jewels to finish it out now.

It might be the angle, but looks like those bottoms have been 'cut' to remove the forehead protector. I like the distressed look of the camo bottoms.

Also those green jewels would look great on my e-Flex!

Cutting off the forehead protector is just part of taking it out of the package to be honest. I didn't even think to count that part.

You can see it on the picture of Sonny. It is a plastic piece that is above the goggle frame that protects your forehead. It is often removed though.

I never use forehead protectors either. That's what I have a headband for.

Those are some boss goggles, John.

I guess it really has been a while! I miss my Flex8's

But, good find! I actually liked the Flex8 hard ears myself as well, but I have flat ears, I guess.
