Well im stupid...I was taking the strap off of my recently aquired proflex (my friend got me one as a gift) because i have to wash all fabric related items for reasons i wont disclose and well...i tore one of my soft ears near the top...im gonna use what little glue is left in my hot glue gun and hope it holds but if not does anyone else have any suggestions to fixing them? or have a spare pair you would be willing to send me?

Is it right next to where the strap goes? If so, it shouldnt be a problem, even if you fix it. The strap will hold the soft ear down anyway.

There are many people that actually purposely cut part of the soft ear so they can easily remove their strap.

Right near the top of where the strap goes yea. Are you positive? Kinda makes me doubt JT, he spent 60 bux on it and the soft ear tore that easily.

It's just a foam bit, really doesn't make a difference to the mask.

I'm thinking about picking up another proflex. My store has a pile of black ones.

Yeah, that is not going to be a problem. If you are really that worried about it though, you can always get new ears, they are cheap. That is if you are not happy with how your repair job is.

ide just make a new pair.....just get some craft foam, use rubber cement to glue 2 pieces together, sandwich between some books to dry for 24 hrs, use existing ear as a template and trace onto foam.....cut out and enjoy. total cost = ~ $ 2 for several ears...
