I used them another day after what was mentioned above...again, flawless performance. It was miserably hot and humid and they did great.

I am telling you, it is the best $25-$30 you will spend for the Grill.

The batteries on my Habervision fan went dead. I didn't notice.

Been using them on my profilers with zero issues all season. The clarity is really unmatched. I've always loved the profiler lenses for lack of distortion, and this double pane deal just is icing on the cake. I haven't used any anti-fog since I bought them.

I was told in June that the lense will be going back to a single pane. The single pane is the 'original' lense that they used for Grills when first produced. The factory that was producing the more current lenses was in China, but now will be in canada. They felt going back to the original single pane produced by the original factory (which is/was in canada) results in a lense that doesnt fog. Even though it's single pane, and will not technically be 'thermal'. If this makes any sence.

I'd be willing to bet the decision was made because of issues with the dual panes.

I loved the thermals on my profiler, they were absolutely perfect until the lenses began to separate after the fourth day of play.

Pretty disappointing IMO and replacements (yellow) are nonexistant.

I have noticed no issues with mine separating and actually, this is the first I have read of this. Very disappointing. If JT can do it properly, then why can't VForce? If I can't get thermal lens for it in the future, then I will switch masks.

Yeah that's where I'm at. I had to put the old stock clear lens back in last time I played. Total bummer really. Now its a matter of trying to decide which to try next. I'm leaning towards the new Eflex but I'll wait for the price to come down.

It bums me out b/c I like the profiler design. I've been using it in one form or another since the mid '90s (Brass Eagle Maxx Vision). I fell in love with the yellow thermal lens. Its too bad it was such a short affair.

It is too bad, I hadn't even seen dual panes for the Profiler's yet, and I'm still waiting for an E-Flex with my name on it at the local shop.

If it wasn't for my glasses I'd still be using my Grill

Tried that once. My eyes hate em. I was actually debating trying that again so I don't have to fight the e-flexes to keep my glasses on

Damn, hadn't heard about any separating :| I've been looking for work all summer so I have only been paintballing once, and had got to use my thermal once late last year... my mom moved my stuff over the winter, however, and masks ended up on the bottom of the gear "pile" -__-

So, when I went to rinse off my masks, the Profiler and it's used-once lens got half full of water! I let them dry out, but I haven't field tested to see if they fog (because I'd have to order online to get new ones)...

I better grab one or two soon! :|
