Tons of people buy the cheap 20 dollar rental mask too and think it is great. It doesn't make them right. The only way the Proflex is even safe is if you mod the ears. A mask that doesn't even cover up the whole ear is just not good. Anyone who tries to argue the ears on the Proflex are anything but bad is just wrong.

I've been shot in the ears multiple times with my Proflex. I have suffered no hearing damage.

You're lucky we are communicating over text, tall.

And poopfairy, are you really trying to ridicule people who customize things to their liking? You must be new to earth or something, because everybody customizes everything always. Deal with it. And they don't always spend $1,000 on a mask, a lot of those guys just sit on old parts until the value appreciates enough to make $1,000.

They can make a good amount of money on old mask parts. How's that for intelligence?

I see where they're coming from, though. Just because you haven't suffered any hearing damage doesn't someone else hasn't or won't in the future. I see where you're coming from, too. I guess if you have a smaller head and the proflex wraps around further or your ears are smaller or more forward, maybe the ear protection is more adequate. One thing I've learned is that these are all opinions. Until you get one on your head and decide for yourself, this all means jack. I don't see what the point in arguing over this. It's all in what works best for each individual. I personally chose against the proflex but it covered my ears fine. It was the nose foam that pushed against my glasses and made them sit crooked on my face. It was comfy, I just couldn't see worth a crap.

Speaking of crap, we're crapping on OC's thread and none of this helps n00bs.

Yea but I found a couple of these in my first week and they really helped. For however long it's here, it may still help.

I'm looking into it but it looks like my exam for contact is gonna be expensive because I have an astigmatism in my right eye and apparently everyone charges extra for that.

It's here for those who want them. Also, given my trait that I rarely form topics, it's easily accessible for me as reference, as I forget some good points when giving advice.

Yeah, I can see where you're coming from value wise, with selling the old parts in the future. My philosophy on purchasing items has always been buy for me, not you, so that's where I'm a little off on keeping old parts. ( on a side note, I find buying used masks disgusting) & in all honesty, I fail to see the point in customizing things period. Maybe I'm weird for this, maybe I'm the only smart person on the planet. Either way, I don't know. What's important here, to the original discussion, is that I would not reccomend proflexes to newer players, due to the safety issue I've witnessed firsthand.

Go with Carbon fiber tanks. This means nothing that's X/3000.


Broseph, as far as tanks go....They can come in the 3000's and be carbon fiber.....I used to own a 68/3000 Pure Energy before my 68/5000 Evil...

This is true. But x/5000 tanks are no longer in the industry because practically no fields fill above 4500 psi. The idea behind getting a Carbon Fibur 68/4500 is the resale is very high as opposed to 68/3000 and 48/3000. Also, they hold more air and are more comfortable.

I thought the 3000s were fiberglass, instead of carbon fiber.

Nope, they are either aluminum or steel.

I'm not talking about modern 3000s. I am fairly certain there were Fiberglass 3000s back in the day.

Yeah they were both. They were fiberglass originally, and then they switched over to carbon fiber later on. Btw this is all before 4500psi were available, and they still have them used in hydro, and would be a better starter tank than a 48/3000 for around the same weight and price.....Also 5000psi tanks are not around anymore due to the need, but they can be fillled to 5000psi if the field were to have boosters at their fill station....Besides I got mine for $55 with new hydro, and they are great conversation pieces.
