thermal line in e flex lens annoy u?

is it just me or do the thermal lenses screw up your vision? I got a pair of e flexes to try. Always used grills and you cant see the thermal line. When I have the e flexes on it factors into my vision. Love the mask though. I can breathe much better out of it.

anyone else had that issue?

Yep same here, I tried on a pair of events last year and noticed the problem with them. Eflexes (same lense) are the same way for me. I decided to just stick with my proflexes.

See I did not have the issue with the events, and honestly you're the first person I have heard have that issue. This really became noticeable with the proflex line but if you toss a lens wrap on it the issue is less noticeable.

I noticed that its not blocking my view. Its the same as my grills but its just the extra clear on the other sides of the line around the nose that just makes it seem like its getting in the way. Ordered some lens trim now. Pretty sure that will help.

Just wanted to make sure I wasnt the only one that didnt like that. Its fine looking way downfield though

Never noticed it with events, but i do with my eflex. Haven't played a game with em yet, though.

Many folks say getting those lens sticker wraps solves the problem - by eliminating the ability to see out along the outer edges of the lens, you trick your brain into ignoring the thermal lining.

Paintballer187 makes em, and can also make custom ones. I'm gonna play this weekend, see if the lining bugs me. If so, i'm getting the lens wrap.

already ordered the red blood checker ones for the red e flex. As you said, its that little hint of light on the other side that makes me think its messing up my FOV. Esp when i look left or right

once your playing and into the game, it doesnt really affect you (at least in my opinion...but if its messing with you that much, their are lense wraps for less than 4 dollars...the KM ones are cheap, and mine broke within 1 direct hit...use planet eclipsle ones

It doesn't bother me at all, I don't notice it, but I do love my grills, they are still my favorite mask. I am used to wearing glasses though, so I look past a black line every day lol

Yeah it really bugs me too. Especially since the Eflex sit so far from your face.
Another reason for me to stick with proflexes.

Finally used the eflex in-game a couple weekends ago. While standing around, i still noticed the foam - during the games, i didn't notice at all.

I've still got some custom pb187 lens trim on the way, but now that's just gonna be for looks.
