I ditched my Profilers for the new E-vents version. I have glasses and loved the Profilers for that. I, too, got sick of waiting for the thermal lenses to restock. I've been extremely happy using the E-vents with my glasses.

Dunno if that helps you, though.

EDIT:

These are the ones I bought:

My big Head

I wear a 7 5/8 fitted hat so I know I carry a Melon. I happen to like my proto switch mask. Even better than that is an Olive green JT mask (think it is a flex) but not sure, It is comfortable and doesn't rub on my ears.

I wear 7 1/2 hat, and agreed the proto masks are pretty awesome. I use an axis pro. I believe it shares the same lens system with the switch. Super easy lens changes, never fogs ever, and good comfortable coverage for larger heads

1. Where do you live that you can't get those? My local shop has them in stock right now.

2. What's wrong with the thermocured lenses? I've had a Profiler since 2006 with the thermocured lenses and I've never had a fogging issue. I also have a huge head.

I'm in the Chicago area. I found one gold mirrored lens at a local store. I also found a few silver mirrored lenses on ebay. All the big online paintball stores do not have any in stock.

I agree that the thermocured lenses are pretty good. But they aren't perfect. You have to be careful how you clean them. And the anti-fog protection does wear off in time.

That's a shame they don't have them in stock. I can get clear/tint at my local store already.

In 6 years I still have the original thermocure with no problems. I'd say if you like the Profiler just be patient.

Re: Vforce Thermals

I have a pair in yellow. I was literally able to wear them for 3 days of play before the inner lens separated from the foam.

They were excellent before then, now they're pretty much the biggest disappointment ever. I need to try to contact CS. I had to put it off b/c I was moving across the country.

I haven't ever had a problem with Vforce thermals. I used my profiler every weekend for a month when I had it. I ended up selling the mask though. I'm curious as to how they work with the Grill.
