Is the assumption that they'll never make it in a different color than black, or did they say that somewhere?

The biggest concern for me is the large amount of folks complaining about the lenses. Anyone bought lenses recently that can say whether or not they’re still junk?

Pretty sure Nick confirmed awhile back that new lens are coming, but won't be until "late Spring" like the release of these "new" goggles. Or maybe that was the other Proflex colors thread.

There's a Nick Slowiak post somewhere stating that GI/JT has a new vendor making lenses. Not sure if those are hitting shelves yet, but I'm hoping they're an improvement.

That's good to hear, thanks for the heads up. Hopefully we'll get some confirmation sooner or later...

I bought a new pair of GI lenses over the summer. Lightly cleaned them with a soft paper towel. The lense literally disintegrated. Good to hear they’re changing vendors.
GI customer service was excellent though.

The new lens are out. The packaging is no different than the old lens. How do you tell that you have a new lens then? The is a number below the top tab and the main lens. That number is the way to identify what mold lens you have. Going to need a magnifying lens or phone with decent zoom to see/read that number. Does JT advertise this info? Not that I’ve seen, you just get “talk to your local shop” Well, my local shop said they haven’t heard anything from JT either.

Some great PR right there.

More like the tab, top center, just above where the main lens starts. Read more easily from the rear or how the lens would be looked through installed. Super tiny and hard to read

Hahahaha this is true, but some Millennials are in their 30s and went through this too. Personally I blame Donald Trump, clearly his fault

I think it's the frame that makes it quick-change, and would use the same old Spectra lens.

Kinda.

It's still the Spectra lens, but they had to get a new supplier as the previous one was pure crap. Like maybe 1 use per lens.

Did anything happen with this? Are they offering a free lens to those of us who bought multiple of the **** ones and got one or two used from them?

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.
