A pro's choice from the start, this new system incorporates the world's best selling goggle; the Spectra™ with our world-famous soft ear protection. The state-of-the-art Pro-Flex® mask provides superior face protection using JT®'s unique insert molding technology. This gives the player a rigid upper mask for ultimate protection with a soft lower to conform and move. Add the 7visor®: and our infamous thermal lens and you've got a winning combo. Performance, comfort and versatility - now available in all the hottest colors to make sure your team looks as good as it plays.
The JT Proflex Mask is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
I've used a Proto Switch E.L. Anti Fog Single, it tended to fog A LOT, although it was a mask that felt tight to the face, it was hard to communicate which I prefer in my JT Pro Flex Googles. Granted the Proto's were used. I had also previously used some camo googles from a friend and they were bulky compared to the JT Pro Flex googles, as well as poor with communication and were fairly hot to wear.
Light easy communication low fog quick to clean easy to customize and good 270 view
Only 1 I found was the earpieces which both tore but easily replaceable.
After wearing these googles to the field quiet some time and getting in some good battles I would say these have been my favorite googles I've come across. They are light weight, have yet to fog on me, and are easy to break down, replace parts, and customize. As I said earlier the only down side I've found were that I was a little rough on the soft ear pieces and they tore after a couple uses. Luckily they're easily replaceable and cheap to replace. I've heard the comments on the water between the dual lenses, and I've only experienced that briefly at home when doing heavy cleaning on my gear. Other than that no problems on the field and they give me a great field of focus.
They're a favorite google at my local field and I would definitely recommend them to anyone searching for a great google system.

Good view, good breathing, no fogs
so for strenghts - this mask has any strenght you can imagine - it is light, it is comfy, it has great field of view, no fogs and breathing is easy, fair price - in this respect like the older classical Spectra (maybe this one felt a bit more comfortable, but aven´t used the old model for a while to really compare).
These may be reasons for lots of people to buy. For me on the first place is PROTECTION. This is why I buy mask, I want to be 100% sure I do not suffer meaningless injury during play. Protection in this case is WEAK.
Firstly, the old Spectra pain, not much of a coverage, from side and neck is uncovered. But not so big deal if u use hat, helmet and scarf or neck protector, whatever. Big breathing holes used to allow paint inside mask when direct front hit, sometimes u could feel sting. Acceptable.
Secondly (but most importantly) the new rubber face protection lack evn the "acceptable" level of old Spectra protection. So - if you get hit in your face, prepare itœ gonna hurt. I believe it is ok, when you play against people with correct fps set and fragile pro paintballs. But I play mostly woodsball, and sometimes with ppl I don´t know their weapon setup, also tough shell paintballs are mostly used. So I have experience that when I lend this mask for one play, I got hit from approx 10meters into chin - and it hurt. Next time a friend of mine wearing this got hit from 5 meters (we palyed inside building) and GOT INJURED his mouth (torn lips, bleeding hard). From that time on I played last games with fear and this will decrease your performance. Yes, I know, you can object it might be shooters fault due to big fps and whatever, but you never know what will happen on the field.
Did my friend have a lemon? I don´t care, I can accept a fail on anything else, but not on a mask.
So, no, thanks, I will keep my old Spectra as a backup mask, using V-Shield and not gonna "upgrade" this time.
If u play X-ball and know your opponents, proflex might be an option for you, just avoid being shot from flank. (add +3 to Rating)
If u r into woodsball, using hard shell paintballs, CO2, playing indoor scenarios (very close encounters most likely) - DEFINETELY not buy this, you will not be well protected. If u still like the other advanteges, try to look for old Spectra, it´s nearly the same but with better protection.

Bounces off the bottoms. cool, abd very confertable
I had a events for about 1 month and got tired of them, so i bought the Proflex, these masks are so costomizable! With a black frames, smoke lense, and red bottoms mine look great. I have gottom a few bounces on the bottoms. They are really cool. the soft ears are a little high but not a big problem, they sometimes get the lobe of the ear. The visor kind of looks stupid on them. breathing is not a problem with these masks
These are the best looking, and best perfomance around.

ok so i got my proflex a few months ago and i FINALLY got to play last weekend. i hav an eps red bandana frame on mine (freakin sick!). anyway i went to my feild and played a few games. this mask feels soooooo light on your face. i hav a grill and an event and its lighter than both those. i live in arizona so its always really hot. needless to say i was sweating like crazy. the foam on my proflex held up very nicely and felt very good even when drenched in sweat. unforunatly i didnt get to see how bouncy the flex is because i was gogged only once and it was right above the flex! crap! oh well. still a great mask and definatly worth every penny. i wish i knew about the proflex before i bought my grill because i wouldve bought the proflex 1st!
i just got in a new proflex that i built off of actionvillge.

I would recommend this mask to all players! if you have $100 you want to spend on a mask you should buy the proflex. youll get the best mask on the market and youll save $35!
i want to give this mask a 9.5 but that rounds up to 10 so why not?

This was my first mask after using the field masks.
eVLution III hopper
balls bounce off mask, Never fogs, Lightweight
A little short for my face
This is a great mask for anyone. It never fogs (it's never fogged once in the fifteen or twenty times I've played). Sometimes though when the paintballs hit the mask's lense it's a little bit hard to get the residue off so it looks like fog- if you don't already, I'd reccommend bringing plenty of paper towels.
I take so many bounces off the side of this thing- it's amazing. Out of the many times I've been hit in the mask, only two or three balls have broken. I find that to be pretty impressive.
My only problem with this mask is that twice I have been charging forwards and been hit in the neck. The ball got up under my mask somehow and it was probably the most painful paintball hit yet. My mask wasn't really riding up on my head, it's just too short for me. That's a slight problem but if you just don't get hit in the neck, don't worry about it. It'll give you some cool welts to show your friends anyways :)

Cp Reg and Barrel (2 piece)
Easy disassembly and reassembly
Profile is a little bit big on the sides of the face
Minor ear protection
This is an awesome mask. It weighs very little, and can be easily taken apart. ( It takes me around 10 minutes TOP to take apart, clean, dry, and put back apart). You can breath awesomely, and the bottom half is super flexible. In terms of bounces, these goggles bounce more than any other that I have tried. Along with that, it only costs $60!
However, when I got hit in the ear, it did sting a little bit...but nothing to put me out of the game. Also, the front profile is a little bit large, and can be big on some people. The chin strap can also be a little bit annoying.
Honestly, you can't go wrong with these goggles. I would take them any day over: Protos, Dyes, and MAYBE even profilers or Vents.
This mask is pretty nice it is fairly comfortable and it has many diffrent lense options such as clear,smoke,mirrors,tint,etc. The lense can be a bit of a hassle to change but not as hard compared to I3 pros. Dureing a game I was playing and a paintball hit the flex part of my mask which obviously is flexible and the paintball was able to push the flex part and was able to use that flex part to hit me in the mouth. (the ball didn't break) Somehow it ended up cutting my mouth and leaving a scratch but it was not that bad. besides that this mask is very good
I would recomend this product because it is well worth it's price and is very suitable for people that want a mask with more flexability/comfort

Soft ears break easily
A bit too flexable (jaw slap)
Ive used this mask for about 3 years and they were my first high end pair of goggles. They are very light ( i dont know exact weight) and i have had many bounces. Also they have yet to fog. I think there is almost every colour (if you upgrade) and they sit very securely. the only cons to the mask are the soft ears break kind of easily and theres alot of jaw slap if you get hit in the soft area of the mask.
Im giving these goggles an 8 out of 10 because they have almost no problems except the soft ears which i think they couldve made a bit stronger.
In my opinion, looks sort of ugly.
Lens removal can be difficult.
Very ventilated. You can wear it in extreme heat, and you still won't get hot like when wearing some other masks.
One of the main reasons I bought the mask. It has great thermal lens. It definately will not fog on you. I believe fog resistance is one of the most important features a paintballer can have in his gear. If you can't see, then you are basically eliminated from the game.
It is definately not as heavy as some other masks.
One of the best features in the product. I can wear the mask all day, and never need to take it off between games. It's that comfortable.
In my opinion, it does lack protection in the ears.
I have no doubt that this is the best mask on the market. With extreme comfort, great thermal lens, and superb ventilation, I believe it well deserves a 10/10.
