Theres a chance I might need to change my lens every time I go out and play depending on the weather..... And yes, it is definitely enough of a PITA to make a difference. We all can't live in places where it's pretty and sunny out every time we play. I'm not crying about it, I'm simply saying why deal with it if you don't have to.

The new Proflex foam is identical to the Eflex foam. The old stuff is different.

Unless you have spare cash to throw around, proflex. I have an e-flex and sometimes I get a little jealous that other players have pretty much the same function and comfort in a mask, minus ease of lens removal, for half the cost.

But the ease... the ease...

As some others have mentioned. Some people may have to change their lenses every time they play if they go night/day indoor/outdoor.

Maybe I have clumsy fingers, but every proflex lens change has taken at least 5 painful minutes.

Another bonus is that the eflex lens is easier to clean, since there's no frame blocking the edges.

I'll see if my buddy brings his new LE proflex, it's foam is just like my eflex. Whereas on my old proflex the foam odd more dense.

Interesting. Coolio.

Changing lenses on my flex takes me under a minute when I'm not rushing. Peel it off, shuv it back on. I change my lens based on the field I am playing at. If I go to a scalding hot nightmare speedball field I wear the mirror, if its a well covered wooded field, it will be a clear lens. I'd rather have a quick change lens, but not at the cost of any comfort whatsoever.

since you have Events already, I would say Events because the lens transfers. And as many have stated the lens change is much easier.

This is true. If you still have 2-3 lenses from your events, that probably offsets the price completely. Then you're just comparing features.
