Products Used:
Besides rental masks, the first mask I owned was the JT Elite nVader goggles. Compared to the Pro-Flex, it doesn't compare at all. The nVader is big, cumbersome and heavy where the Pro-Flex is light, easy to see with and easy to move your head around in and as it is named, flexible.
Marker Setup: 2004 WGP Pro Stock (Blue)
CP 2-Piece (Silver and Blue)
Check-It Products Unimount (Silver and Blue)
Macroline System (Blue)
eVLution II Hopper (Clear)
Dye Stickies (Blue)
ANS X2 Inline Regulator (Silver and Blue)
Regulator Angle Module (Silver)
Strengths: 1. Lightweight
2. Flexibility
3. Thermal Lenses
4. Price
5. Upgradability/Accessoriety
Weaknesses: 1. Soft Ears
2. Chin Strap
Review: Although the selection of masks I have used is limited, I know I will use this mask for a long time. After much research, I decided on buying the JT Flex-7 goggles. I bought them and waited for their arrival, anxiously. When I got them, they were not the JT Flex-7 goggles, but instead the 2005 JT Pro-Flex goggles. I can't complain considering I saved approximately $20.00. I love the mouth guard, it is really flexible rubber and nice. The goggles are very nice and thermal. The visor is retractable which is also nice. The goggles also come with a great goggle bag, a plus I didn't know about! As for upgradability, there are a lot of things you can buy for this mask. I also love its accessoriety, in that you can change the masks colors and you can buy awesome straps (currently sporting the Bengal strap). The downside is limited and overshadowed by the upside. I don't like the soft ear protectors. Although I have never been hit in the ear, I fear the day it will eventually happen and I pray for nothing more than fice minutes on the sideline. The other downside is the chin strap. It seems these are common palce for goggles these days, but with the little clip, it is really hard to unbuckle with my gloves on. I like to rest the goggles on my head allowing my face to breath in between matches and in order to do that, I need to unbuckle the chin strap which requires removing the gloves which is an unnecessary hastle. If you take the chin strap off, you void the warrant and liability, something I wouldn't risk doing.
Conclusion: I recommend this product. It brings the high quality, pro level goggles down to earth and won't burn a hole in your wallet like its rivals, the Dye Invisions and the VForce Profiler. I give this product a nine because of the soft ears and chin strap.
