people can rupture their ear drums by getting bunkered and shot in the ear... BUT That's a Risk many many Proflex owners know and are willing to take the risk... it rarely happens but it CAN happen. I personally don't like a mask that doesn't cover the Ears.... but if you looking for a mask that is like wearing a Space Marine Helmet for protection the Profits are like wearing a pillow around your head.

I believe the bottoms on the eflex are a bit stiffer than the proflex too (could just be me, but they feel that way), and the foam is different.

Only "advantage" I can say eflexes have over proflexes are the easy lens switch. It gets easier with flexes when you get some practice. I refuse to wear eflexes because they feel funky on my face; the new foam is a lot stiffer than original JT foam. The whole ear thing, you can always put empire/dye ears on a flex and call it a day. Have used flexes for years now and probably won't use any other mask unless I have to.

I've always used either events or avatars since they came out. But i just bought some proflexs out of just basically money I had to blow. I love them. I don't ever want to use anything else. Unless I rupture my eardrum of course. Lol

You could always take the E-Vents ears and put them on the Flex. Bassfisher just made a tutorial the other day on this site.

Nicer ears. Firmer foam. Better lenses and quick change system for them. If you prefer it, the eflex also has less flared out bottoms, and more of a smaller, sleeker look. The E-Flex pretty much made the ProFlex obsolete as long as price isn't concerned, and even then, there are other masks that put purchasing the ProFlex in question.

They both use the same foam, and the bottoms are nearly identical. The differences are more convenience than anything. The differences are:

1. the E-flex bottoms are curved in slightly so thy don't stick out as much as proflexes.

2. They use the E-vent lens system, which is easier to take apart than Spectra frames.

3. They use a somewhat modified E-vent ears, which are higher quality and offer more protection than stock proflex ears.

4. the E-flex is reverse compatible with all proflex bottoms.

Basically, it has E-vent ears and lenses, and proflex bottoms and foam. A great combo, if you ask me.

They don't use the same foam. It's similar, actually very similar, but not the same. The E-Flex foam feels firmer, while the ProFlex foam feels a bit...not firm...for lack of better wording. But they both feel very soft. The ProFlex does feel softer, but the E-Flex foam feels more sturdy.

Apparently, Simon disagrees. Go to 0:45 and 2:15. They are the same foam, fact.

Put flexes on and then put an eflex on and tell me you don't feel a difference. I hate the feel of eflexes and will always stick to my original flexes.

Have you felt it? They say its spectra foam, but its actually improved spectra foam. Its not the same, but its the same concept and degree of quality. Go to a store and feel it. They feel different.

I own both, and have owned many a Spectra frame. They are so similar that it doesn't even matter to argue about it.

^True. If a mask feels adequate for you, and fits your expectations, then more power to you for your preferences allowing you to save money!

Trying both of them on, I agree. But the only thing that I did not like about the proflex was lack of ear protection without a modification. Other than that I love the weight on the Proflex better than the E-flex.
