Proflex lens smoke or mirror darkness

Hello, I need to buy a lens for my proflexs and I want to know which one is lighter in darkness? Are they darker than the mirror i4s? Because I don't like how i4 mirrors are so dark.

Smoke is lighter or darker than the mirror (silver) lens? For proflexs

Mirror lenses are pretty much the darkest, they are both a smoke tint + a mirror coating on top of that.

Smoke will be lighter.

Mirrors get really dark, like to the point of being unusable on overcast days or playing indoors. Definitely go smoke.

Smoke hands down. Mirrors are useless on cloudy dark days. You can get away with it with the smokes.

I have a smoked lens on my proflex and played at an indoor field last week. The lighting was decent, but I was having issues seeing paint coming at me (the paint found my forehead just fine )... I have no issues playing outside though. I can see just fine and don't get the glare from the sun.

Mirror is definitely darker, but smoke is still pretty dark for an indoor playing environment, at least for me.

Yeah. I always choose what lens I use based on where I am going to play. Sure your dark lens might look cooler but nothing looks less cool than getting shot in the face.
