The proflex was largely unchanged for 20 years. Why ruin a good thing? I understand the lens (with the newer frame they came out with after the original) would take 2 minutes to change instead of 15 seconds but come on... Those look awful.

If I remember well, I have seen this look few monthes ago on the backplan of a picture ...

The quick change system is a really good idea but that bottom and ears are not the best choices

Where was the demand for a new pro-flex? More parts availability, sure. Better quality lenses, absolutely. Yes, the pro-flex has lost market share to goggles that have an easier lens replacement system but GI already has the Profiler, Grillz, EVS, and E-Flex as high end goggles that offer a quick change lens feature. I just don't see the need for this goggle.

It does bring up some questions. Will this replace the old pro-flex? Or will they offer both styles? Will they still be manufacturing parts for the old style pro-flexes? Does this mean that lenses will be more widely available?

It looks just like the old Proflex except without the detachable ears, I don't understand the hate. They honestly ruined the flex when they made the e-flex, that thing was a giant helmet and looked goofy. Great for dudes with giant head/faces but ruined the profile and sleekness of the flex. Imo the flex is timeless just release new parts like they used to with straps, frames, bottoms colorways etc.

Also, I'm wondering if this only one model option of the flex since they just released new colorways with the hard ears. They were marketing those as the new flex for 2019.

This is more like a Flex 8 than a Proflex. How could they get rid of the soft ears? Even the rubber ears on the latest Proflex are caca.

Is the foam still just glued back in or do we have a change-in option similar to the Grill?

I might pick up a pair of these now that I would need a new bottom for my flex anyways. The chin-strap-oppression has finally arrived to Norway.

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.
