Review: I've been using Plexus for years, as it has been in my and my buddies' kit bags at most of our outings.

Strengths:

Even Spray: The can puts an even spray of the liquid on your goggles, and it's easy to avoid spraying all over your entire mask or kit.

Weaknesses:

Needs Microcloth: Like every other solution out there, you need a microcloth or other fine, non-abrasive cloth to clean the lens. Otherwise, the solution will streak and leave itself and paintball oil behind.

vs. Water or Squeegee: In my experience, and through testing, I have not found Plexus to be much better than water or a squeegee; the result is the same. I have noticed that there is less of the filmy residue of paintball oil left after using Plexus, but it's not a huge difference, and is barely noticeable when you get going on the field. A good squeegee generally takes both the paint AND the residue off, as does a microcloth.
Conclusion: A good squeegee and a small spray bottle of water is your best, most economical lens cleaner. I can't justify the money on Plexus when I have to use a squeegee with it anyway. It's not a bad product, it just doesn't justify it's cost.
