Which means either the mirror scratches way to easily or somebody was over shooting a tad. This got me thinking though, why not have a protective film that you can place on your mask. Similar to the ones you put on your phone to keep it from scratching. Just a clear plastic that can be easily applied and removed that doesn't affect how the lens performs. It works great on my phone, keeps the screen nice and clean and free from scratches. When it gets to banged up I have a replacement film waiting to take its place. Maybe these are already out, and if they are please feel free to point me in their direction, but I feel like it wouldnt be a hard thing to make/implement.
The problem is not the mirrored lens. It seems to be with eflex lenses in general.
Two weekends ago i had an indoor tourney and purchased a new clear
lens for my eflex that morning. Chrono limit was 280 & so most were shooting 260-270s so they wouldnt receive hot gun penalties. Everyone was chronoed walking on the field.
Our first game i was playing back corner & was shot all the way across the field by my mirror. i go wipe my lens with a clean microfiber & notice a circle right where i was hit. the coating seemed to be peeling off the lens.
I hope they solve this issue
