Received the mask today. Definitely looks lighter than the original rendered image but not as light as the prototype they posted months earlier. I like it!

Didn't receive the free yellow lenses, anyone else not get those?

My UPS guy drives a Camry. My USPS packages usually come in a Ford Expedition.

Regarding the extra lenses, I was told theyd ship separately.

I talked to the Fight Club guy on FB messenger. Was told that a few people had got notifications with the wrong tracking from JT.

Got mine Friday. Its a lot lighter then the original photo not my flavor. Ended up flipping it on ebay. Hope my snow camo one comes in soon. They way they did the bottoms and ears It looks like its going to be more durable then the crappy Boston E-flex remakes. Still can't get the foam placement right on the new frames. Any word on when we get the extra lens? Or should we just be happy we got a mask at this point?

I am pretty sure it is the first JT Flex (not Empire) with printing on the flexible bottom.

100%

I saw a pair of these last weekend in person. What a bait and switch on the photo to the final product. It went from like a dark woodland style to a desert camo lol. I would be angry if I bought these and they showed up like this

If anyone has seen their jerseys you would have seen this coming. It's a loud pattern but i think it looks better than the pictures.

I'm just happy that "others" have the ability to design a mask and bring it to fruition. Especially these camo patterns and dipped masks.

I don’t think the pattern looks bad. The matching frame bottoms and ears look good. It’s just not as dark as I thought it was going to be. The strap is super cool to.

Got mine, definitely brighter than the original picture but I really like it. I also didn't get the extra lense.

No one will get the extra lens with their goggle. The bonus clear (or possibly yellow) Fight Club lens will come later.

Who it their right mind thinks its OK to look to the right and all your left eye sees is the nose bridge of the goggle frame. Everytime I try on a new pair of goggles today it makes me think of the movie The Jerk and how his invention the opto-grab made people crossed eyed and he got sued. Thank's JT for ruining the fit of just about every other goggle out there. JT Lifer!! My motto is make a great paintball product and everyone will buy it. The great thing about not being sponsored is no one can tell me I have to wear a POS goggle that restricts my vision or use a POS loader that pops open everytime it gets shoot on the side. Most products come out saying they are getting something right other manufactures got wrong but this time its all backwards. JT got it right the first time and everyone else just screwed it up. I'm was hoping JT would come out with other colors. This is a great start.
couldn't agree more. Things aren't made nearly as well as they were, and these newer masks make no sense. Proflex has the best FOV out there. I love my OG E-Vents and old grill, but proflex has had it right from day one. My old Empire Reloader B is to date the best hopper I've owned.

Have you owned anything made after 2008? Almost every loader created after that is 100X better than a Reloader B.

I totally get the love for the proflex, but literally any modern loader in major rotation (HK, Virtue, DYE) will outperform older loaders from back in the day due to how the game has evolved. Even in a world where we'd be shooting 20+ balls per second, a loader that has durable construction and is soft on paint and offers tool-less design is probably going to keep you on the field longer.

Huh? How were old loaders harder on paint? Pros and everyone else shot way better paint in the mid 2000s and never had issue with maxed out Halo Bs, Eggs, and Vlocitys.

I didn't expect that to be such a controversial comment haha. So definitely agree that back-in-the-day paint was way better, or maybe just bigger and heavier so it flew a lot better, but the older force-fed hoppers would definitely put a lot more tension on the ball in order to feed that fast. Maybe this is just me and having a lot of broken paint in my loader back in the day though?

Have you ever worn an EVS? Or even a Profiler? Both have much better vision than a proflex and much easier lens to change too. Your hopper comment is just dumb. Like others said, literally every hopper made since that era has been better, even the Valken loaders are better.

Buddy, did you just say paint was bigger and heavier so it flew better? Really? And you probably broke a ton of paint from playing with a mostly empty hopper or diving/sliding incorrectly. Your right, force feed does put more tension on the balls, but definitely not enough to break them. If that was the case, Dye's R2 wouldn't be as popular as it is.

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.
