I like them and the price is good too. Let's see what color options become available.

Profilers 2.0 coming when???

Am I the only one that just latched onto the Profilers and never moved on? I've tried many masks since then: E-Vents, VIOs, Dye's, even Grills and I just have never found on that I like better than a dual-strap modded Profiler. If they would update the profiler with some soft ears and maybe a less rigid frame for the face shield, it would be the ultimate mask, I would throw my money at them.

I have caught more bounces off of my Profiler lense than any other mask I've tried. No joke, I would frequently feel a round hit my face and be able to tell you by feel that I know it bounced. Those Profiler/Morph lenses are sick.

Though I hate the dual pane thermal lenses in them, and wish they would just go back to the "thermal treated" single pane lenses. I never had a non-thermal lens fog on a profiler in even the most humid weather in a ravine in Oklahoma D-Day in 98 degree heat. I still will pay extra money to places just to get the single pane lenses.

Tl;dr: PLEASE VFORCE just give us an updated PROFILER!!!

The profiler and the i5 are the only masks left with a lens without a stupid border around it...it's x-ball people why TF doesn't anyone call this BS out... no one cares about quick change this and soft ears that. Wipe your mask while it's still on your face and walk back on the field...profilers or nothing…seriously mask companies fix yourselves

I recall a quick conversation I had with Slowiak once where he said he was trying to get Profiler-Pro (soft ears and softer mold) made for some time, but it never went very far in planning/prod.

bah... I'll probably grab one.

I can print TPU now, so might make my own deflector/peak(stubby) combo for it.

I've never been partial to Vforce masks but always respected the brand. I like what they've done with the Grill 2.0.

Whenever I see a pair of the thermo-cured single panes pop up online somwhere I snatch them up. The single pane thermo-cured lenses are SOOOO much better than the junk thermal dual pane that they went to. And they resist fog better too...I have single panes that lasted YEARS....and the dual panes eventually just end up with paint all in-between them, not pro-flex bad...but still annoying.....BRING BACK THE OG LENSES!!!!

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.
