The Vents series lenses used to be phenomenal. Over the last few years, I've personally had seal failures in every lens I picked up, to the point where I had to move my entire family to another platform. We all wore something from the platform, from the Helix, a set of Avatars that became a backup pair, up through the E-Vent and E-Flex. They're all sitting unused now, because I haven't been able to get good lenses for a few years. Don't know what changed, but it was noticeable.

From what Nick Slowiak was saying, the JT lenses are now made on a new line that really upped the quality control. It might be enough to persuade me to give them a shot.

received mine last week and used both Saturday and Sunday and think they're great! I like the slimmer look compared to the classic wide flexes.

Has anyone tries them with glasses? The old flexes did not work for me when I had my glasses on.

Got mine last week as well, I really like this as a refresh to the system. The foam is a little still at first but it becomes more comfortable quickly, the gloss on the lens frame was a little scratched up coming out of the box so I hope the up the quality control there. If you don’t have any flex’s and are interested in trying a pair, I think this is the best way.

any idea when they are going to put out new proflex colors? not a fan of the red/grey, and the proflex x appears to only be in black/black. I miss the red/black/grey proflex from ~5 years ago.

Those are the sizes that were made based on the previous OG pant. They're big. I'm not sure how that will be addressed in the future.

Just got mine and wasn’t impressed with it. The lens would fog when I was testing it. The straps also don’t stay in place in conjunction with the mask.

Tried on a pair yesterday. Why does the bottom piece of foam not come glued all the way? The corners are left sticking up and it causes a hot spot just trying it on, let alone playing a whole day. Was pumped, but Iím going to have to pass

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.
