Proflex/Profiler Fog. Thermal VS Heavy Anti-Fog coating?
Posted 17 January 2008 - 08:14 PM
I understand the JT Proflex has a thermal lens, and is said to be the most fog resistant mask in the world. However... I put way too much value into looks. At my local proshop the only Proflex colors they have is blue, red, and black. Being a woodsballer, I would have to get black. This, and a few other factors, caused me to look into the Profiler. From what I understand, it has a heavy anti-fog coating that will come off eventually. Therefore, I think as far as fogging goes, a Proflex would be better.
To be honest, I would absolutely love to get a olive-drab Profiler. However, I am worried that the mask will eventually fog on me constantly every game, and I will have wished I got a Proflex. Is the fogging difference significant between the Proflex and Profiler? Also, could I buy a thermal lens for the Profiler, and would it be anything like JT lens?

It is really nice to have a thermal lens though. If you ever play in more extreme conditions, single pane lenses can fog no matter how fresh the coating is. If it's possible, just order the Proflex online. Or order them through the pro-shop Then you can choose exactly what colors/combinations of colors you want, even olive drab. You can even choose what parts are hard plastic/soft. I personally like the Flex 7, basically a Proflex with hard ear pieces. It's nice to have the secure feeling of knowing your lens will never fog with a thermal lens.

Thinking about it some more, I realize that a reliable thermal lens is more important than looks. I'll go to my proshop, try on some masks, but I think that a black Proflex would be the better option. Who knows, perhaps I'll even paint it myself.

You gas up the marker, put on the gloves, strap on the mask, and walk onto the field.. it doesn't matter that you failed a test, that your girlfriend broke up with you last night, or that you got a ticket on the way there...your world is right for the next couple hours, this is your heaven on earth... live it... love it..
