Thinking about getting a new mask at some point. I was going to get the pro axis but noticed lenses are hard to get if you can get them anymore. Right now I have the profilers, had them for about 2-3 years. I know it's important to try the mask on first which I plan on doing so i know how much protection I'll have. Just wondering in order out of the 3 which one is best as far as breathable, hearing ability, fog prevention, and comfortable. This way I'll go by the lists and when I try them on I'll go down the list to see which fits me best. Smart right? lol I have sensitive skin too so soft foam would be nice.

On a side not some of them have white which I might get. Or the purple haze grill :D regardless I wear a techpb scenario jersey and black pants lol. But does the white on masks stain easily?

(I would say I4's but I've tried them on in the past and think they're too small. Plus if I out them as an option everyone will have them at number 1.

ansgear has proto axis lense in stock as we speak.The proto axis pro takes the same lense as the EL and FS

Stay away from i3s, they are hands down the worst lens I've ever had to change, I've never used a Profit but I've heard nothing but bad things about breathability, E-vents are a pretty good mask, quick lens removal, I have an E-vent I've used for some time, thinking I'll be using the proflex this year though. The Grill is a great mask, foam comes out so its super easy to clean, has good coverage and decent breathability, only peeve for me is the stock lenses are single pane, so if you want a dual pane lens you've gotta spend the extra.

Of those choices I would say the Grill or E-vent will be your best bet in my opinion.

If you are stuck, try them on and see what fits best. I have the grills and love them to death, but the events and e flexes, which seem great on paper, didnt fit my face well. All masks fit a little different.

Profits are comfy but, the mask is like a pillow. It kinda suffacates your face when you use it, well at least when I used it.

Girlfriend loves her Profits due to the comfyness and I love the Eflexs because of the foam and the lightness, as well as the freedom I feel I have.

Just wait, get a grill, or get any of the other E-Flex.
