opinion on goggles

so, i have jt proflexes. they are great goggles, and i love them, but they get boring. so boring in fact, that i painted them. I painted pinstripes on the bottom on the flex. It was working well, until i put a clear coat on it. the clear coat seemed to weaken the paint. I put hte paint on a pod, let it dry, and there was no chipping. I dropped my mask, and half of the pinstripes came off (no cool). so i decided to take off the rest of the pinstripes. after i took it off, the plastic was scratched up from the knife i used to take off the paint (not the best idea lol)

so, heres where i need help.
i bought new frames for my goggles, so i have 2 frames, 2 lenses, 2 straps, 1 pair of soft ears, and 1 bottom. should i buy a new bottom, and another pair of soft ears and have 2 goggles, and keep them both? or should i sell them both and buy Empire e vents.

orrrrrrrrrrrrrrr should i just buy e vents, and try to sell my proflexes along with the extras i have?


yaeh, its all kinad confusing, get over it Laughing

if you like the proflexes then id say fix the other and keep the other as a loaner if a friend wants a new mask or something.

but those e vents are pretty sweet, a guy at the field got one, they come with 2 lenses, why they cost so much. its so comfy and so light.

I'd say build the 2 flexes and keep them. You could use them both or use one and loan one. Whatever one you like less you could try your hand at modding on.

I'd say go for some vents.

The vents come with 2 lenses, but isn't the second lense a clear single lense(non thermal)?

They are both thermal, like anti-fog, ones just clear and ones smoke.

actually i thought one was thermal one wasn't...

anyways, i'm not sure what i'm going to do. i might buy a cocker off of ebay (its a crappy cocker made by rex, fortunately, it has a cool anno, and i can repalce most of the parts with what i have in my tool box). the cocker is only 100 bucks, so a working cocker for 100 bucks it pretty good... i also might make it into a pump. so i might have to put my urge to buy goggles on hold.

Avatars or Flex 8s.

ewwwwwwww flex 8's are sooo ugly. my field owner has one. they don't even have soft ears.

Soft ears are overrated.

But hey, it's a matter of opinion.
