If wanting new and under 325 I would say Extcy and JT Proflex. That or if you like the Sly Profits they are on sale on ANS right now for 75 which with the Extcy would put you right at 325. That being said I would look used for the marker and get a new mask, but I understand if having problems with a marker and you want to buy new now.
This except proflexes. They have horrible ear protection, and a super hard to change lense. I'm surprised the ASTM approved them.
The lens isn't even that hard to change. I do agree that the stock soft ears leave a lot to be desired as far as protection, but they are still capable of doing the job. But, questioning why ASTM approved them is just absurd.
Also, I'd say the quoted recommendation is sound. If you must replace your mini, which you should just learn how to properly maintain it, then I would suggest an eXTCy. If the Proflex isn't your style, try taking a look at a Proto Pro Axis or V-force Profilers.
