Arrow Cutting the Vents on a SLY Profit

Is it worth it?

I'm not worried about resale or how to do it. I'm more concerned with whether the breathing is actually better.

For those that have done it: Does it allow for a noticeably significant amount of air to escape when breathing out, when compared to uncut?

I've cut mine and they perform better. not extremely. but it does make a difference. if you cut them clean enough people will still pay $60 - $70 if you took care of them. I will put some pics up of what I did, and you can be the judge of if you think it is worth it or not.

Don't do it. Just ditch the mask. I'd rather have a different mask with the ability to breathe rather than keep my current mask and mod the vents. That's just unsafe.

This. Just a bad idea to cut a mask. Try trading them for a proflex or eflex. You'll never have trouble breathing again lol
