if you want to wait I may have a Grey Profiler SE for sale soon. As soon as I can test out the grillz

If you cant I say the Profilers. The lenses are great and super easy to change out. I love my Pro flex's also, but changing the lenses is a task and when you are done your finger tips hurt

i got a brand new dye invision for $40 on eBay! but it's a pain in the butt to change the lense and it doesn't protect you neck at all (but you could get a neck protector), but other than that it's pretty awesome. i'd say go with a dye invision (if you don't mind you fingers sore from trying to take off the lense)

I like Proflex's and Profilers the best. I can't wait to see the new VForce Grillz. I basicly agree with everything Timmyshooter said up there. I do however notice a difference with the two lenses. If you are in light that shines into your goggles and reflects on your skin, you can see your eyeballs in the Profilers spherical lense. But its easy to see past it, just sort of creepy sometimes. Haha.

The fact that you can swap lenses with ease, and clean them so quickly is the biggest + for the profiler for me. That and the way it looks. E-vents look cool, but I've never tried one on. The Proflex is great for the price.

My advice, try them all on, see wich one is best for you, and then deside.

Try each of these on:
Dye I3
VForce Profiler
JT Proflex
Empire E-Vents
Proto Axis

If you wait for a bit, you'll be able to try on the new VForce Grillz as well.

I'd go with trying them on first. Personally, after having Profilers, I wouldn't ever go to having double lenses or lenses that are in a gasket like the Invisions are ever again. I love my Profilers!

I've never owned proflexes, although I've tried them on a few times and just couldn't get used to them. All my friends that have them like them though!

I was never much for going out and buying the latest greatest in masks. It's kinda like running shoes to me - you find a brand that works great for you, stick with them.

I'd recommend these -

1. Profilers/proflexes
2. Events - never had them, but I hear they are very similar to Profilers
3. Try them on first, then try everything in the shop on. Then try taking the lenses out. Base your decision on comfort, stability and ease in cleaning.

I've got invisions and there great. But then again thats pretty much the only goggles i've had besides the cheap mask that came with the start up kit way back when I first got my marker.

But remember your gonna be wearing the mask every single time you play. So get something that is gonna protect your eyes and that is comfertable. The best thing to do is like everyone else said and just go to a shop and try on all different types until you find the perfect one for you.

I have some invisions, and stated before, they are a pain to take apart. Other than that, I think they are a great mask, but I may be getting a new mask soon...

Profiler are awesome, but I got rid of it to get a Flex 8, which is also awesome. The foam on the flex8 is a little thicker and comfortable (to me.)

so now (imo) flex8 > profiler
