If y'all could make a version of that frame that would work with OG bottoms/ears they'd fly off the shelf.

It's a new goggle that's really not backwards compatible.

The most popular and comfortable goggle system in the world now comes with an all new Pro- Change frame system and is no longer the most popular and comfortable goggle system in the world.

I think that is a bit of an error in design choice. There is such a massive secondary market surrounding the Flex that has been built for over 20 years. To make am updated design that does not utilize this entire market is a bad call I think. I will order a few of these but I wish I could also utilize my old parts with this much much better frame design option. Either way, Happy to see the JT brand being put back to a better image again instead of being the beginners brand it become under GI. They are back to supporting top level teams and making new products. Would love to see something creative and new in terms of a mask from them though other than just continuing to ride the Proflex.

The ProFlex is still alive and well with plans for new goggles, both private label and factory, to be released. Again, the X, is a whole new system that will have it's own parts to be used for accessorizing. This will build a new market.

Be that as it may, the Flex is still a wonderful goggle...so long as you don't have one of the cheap lenses. I only stopped using my Flexes when they made the lenses suck. Now that they've started making good lenses again, they should be a great option again.

People said that about the Eflex but I rarely to never saw people use those with a Proflex facemask.

I actually did that for a little bit, but only because it's what I had laying around. The Proflex frame/ears didn't sit as well with the Eflex lowers though.

If the frames didn't look so bulky/cheap and were thinner, I would pick these up

Can't find anywhere that talks about straps and compatibility/how they attach. I mean, I'm going to look up the manual in a minute but seems something to mention in the marketing.

I shoved a Proflex strap into one at World Cup. It was a tight fit but it worked.

And I'd like a white or a gray frame as well. That would work on an otherwise all black mask.

Where are you buying these lenses? And how recently did they switch to "good" lenses? I am asking because I purchased a lens and a LE Proflex recently and both lenses fog horribly. My scratched up smoke lens from 2005 has never fogged.

I'm just looking for a good retailer to buy these famed "good" lenses! Thanks

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
