Title says it all. I've tried both on. Both fit great. I'm leaning toward the Grillz solely because of its smaller pricetag. But I can afford both so here I am.

I have the grill and love it. If the only thing stopping you is price, then go ahead and get the cheaper one.

Keep in mind youll want to get a dual pane lens for the Grill so thats an extra $25.

V force has the thermal bake technology so dead on that dual pane is not required. I've rarely fogged using my grill with the single pane thermal baked lens... I can't say the same for my eflex, it's almost totally shit

I would personally go for the Grillz, simply because I like Vforce masks, even their basic masks are actually decent. They also don't seem to fog like other masks, since it seems to fit your face fine I would go with the Grillz because they're cheaper, will most likely have less of a tendency to fog, and Vforce is simply one of the best paintball mask companies.

You don't need a thermal lenses for a good mask. If it doesn't fog then there is no point in replacing it

Yeah try playing in rain, high humidity or cold weather with the single pane lens and ser how well it resists fogging. Also the coating will wear off over time.

Ditto

 

The thermocured lens on my grill works perfectly indoors, but if I go outdoors then it will start to fog up a little. Keep in mind that it is still a great lens by itself. As long as you don't play super long rounds outdoors you should be fine.

 

If you do go outdoors quite a bit I would recommend the thermocured AND dual pane grill lens. I got one for Christmas and I have yet to try it out, but the thermocured lens performed quite well so the dual pane one should have zero issues.

I have never had any issues with fogging or fitting with my Eflex. The Eflex is a great mask, but some prefer the Grills over them. Try them on, don't look at the price. Whats good for you is good for you, regardless of how much the mask cost.

Waits for glue to start shifting...

I have never had a pair of eflex that didn't fog or have foam shifting issues. Compounded with soft ear separation, and the occasional lock tab lost.

Yea the eflex is kinda a crappy mask to deal with. Like these days I wear my i4 for practice and recball, and proflex at tournaments. Not to mention my new grill-flex hasn't been completed yet

A buddy of mine has grillz and the 2 issues he's had have been 1) the soft ears falling out and 2) the lenses fogging up. I'd rather go with the e-flexes, the only thing I don't like about the eflexes is the look to be 100% honest.

You've had bad luck with your eflex then. I nor anyone at my field has had any problems with theirs. I've had mine since it came out and it's been working great.

I've had mine since it came out too. And it was replaced once already and all it does is sit on my workbench.

I've even tried selling it for $50 and nobody even wanted them lol

Do you live in a humid area?  

 

I've zero problems with my E-flex.  No fog, no foam concerns.  Only mask that will cover my big ass head.

Ascetically speaking, I'd go for the Grillz. Not just because of the "furrowed brow" look, but I don't like the bottoms on the E-Flex, they look flimsy.
