Flex questions

Hey would it be cheaper to buy a flex piece by piece or just buy a new one?


cause i need a new mask and ive allways wanted a flex but everyone is always just selling parts and when their selling the full mask its almost as much as a new one

If you find the parts cheap enough, yeah it could potentially be cheaper than buying a new one.

ANSgear.com is selling them for $45-$60 (Plus shipping and handling mind you).

Currently Proflex's are only available in black, red, blue, and yellow

Proflex Revolution is available in black and white/black.

Any other colors or configurations will be made up of EPS colors/parts. Those parts would have to be purchased seperately or from a site that sells them preassembled.

Like paradox & josh said, shopping around for parts, even buying used parts, is a great way to get a cheap flex assembled. Lots of people sell like new parts for cheap, provided their not rare like limited edition straps, HB parts, etc.

Warped has a good # of pre-built flexes but the price of $89 makes me woozy. I just bought an all pink flex of a dude locally for $30, it just needs a lens. It's practically brand new, he got it in a big package deal & was selling off the stuff he didn't want.

Rare, or not rare makes no difference on the field.
Just get a cheap plain colored flex in good condition.

Personally, if you spend more than $100 on a mask you're a tool, but if you spend less than $25 you're an idiot. Mind you the spending less than $25 is directed at crappy masks like a Vforce Armor, or JT Radar.
Masks are made for one reason: Protect eyes, ears, mouth and nose. So get a quality mask, but don't waste money on useless "rare" parts that serve no purpose on the field.

Cool, and cool that the condition of the strap (band?) is listed. Strap prices can vary a LOT but standard straps are pretty cheap.

Typically most flexes are in good condition but i always insist on confirming at least the condition of the foam.

a paintball gun is designed to shoot paintballs at 300 fps, so is everyone who buys a gun over $200 a tool?

A person who spend the money and behave "agg" because they bought expensive or rare gears are tools....

Otherwise I have no issue with what they buy as it is their money (or parents' money)
