I have 2012 and 2013 EG2s and both did not have them. From the pic you posted, it looks like you wear them inside the helmet. If you wear them on the outside of the helmet, they do slip a little. Not a big problem, but having the silicone strip help with the slipping when you have the goggles off on top of the helmet.

i use the EG2's 90% of the time. it makes my gf nuts cause the oakley goggles in the front left were custom made and cost like $240 and i hardly ever wear em.. but the EG2's are just unmatched in field of vision and comfort IMHO.

the splices are the newest addition and theyre actually really comfortable and the lenses are AMAZING for low light
This is a great post. I ride EG2s and have been thinking of switching but now I might not bother.

Kinda want to try those Anon M1 goggles with Magne-Tech. We'll see.

I have a bronze chrome, which is just too dark for me unless the sun is absolutely blinding. I wear yellow/chrome 97% of the time. Thinking of getting blue/chrome next.

My fire iridium have a few scratches but you can't notice it when wearing them. The yellow are noticeable when wearing but I don't give a shit.... New lenses with my discount locally are $20.....

Argo, which lens do you find the most versatile? I have bronze chrome which I never use -> too dark.

I use yellow chrome for pretty much everything, but looking for something that handles bluebird a little better.

One lens to rule them all?

I don't think there really is a one lens to rule all but if I had to choose one, it would be Orange.

I use Silver Bronze Chrome for bluebird days and Orange for all others except night riding.

I've gotta say the best lens on all of them is the HI Persimmon lens in the Splices ... But I hate when people can see my eyes so I use them sparingly lol . Also, I'm in oakley fanatic and firmly believe their actual lens tech is the best

I was hoping you had the Dye T1 goggles in there. I don't seem to see them. You whole collection is now void

*joking* but seriously though I am looking to see how the T1's are

Well I can give you SOME insight into Dye. I played paintball at a very high level for a long time before hanging up my gear, and my last pair of goggles were the Dye I4's ... Dye makes the highest quality products in paintball IMHO, and I've heard nothing but good things about both the T1 and CLK's.. The problem I've found with most stores around here is that since they are new to snow sports and don't offer an entry level goggle, people aren't quick to buy 160$+ goggles by them when Smith and Oakley are right next to them.. Therefore not alot of stores are stocking them around here. I can't speak for the peripheral vision on them, but Dye has incredible quality, a really really good design team and I don't believe for a second that they'd put a pair of goggles on the market that couldn't compete with the best out there.
Ill probably snag a pair next season when I have some extra cash ... I like the easily changeable lenses and I've always supported Dye gear

What makes one hang up their gun on their paintball career?

I honestly just got burnt out.. It's a big commitment for not alot of payout. I'd accomplished pretty much everything I'd wanted to accomplish. I finally got to the point where the politics involved , the expenses and the bs just weren't worth it to me. Nowadays I'd rather compete against myself and nature.. I loved paintball, made some of my best friends through it, travelled all over the country. I just lost the passion that kept me going through the bullshit. Once sponsors and free gear and handouts get involved, it stops being fun and starts being a business. Just wasn't for me .
That's one thing I love about snowboarding.. The pureness of it. Ill never be a pro rider.. Ill never be sponsored . I'm okay with that. I compete against my own limits, I go at my own pace, and I love every second of it .
I will admit I have some great memories though .

I actually use the i4s now though in the avi I am using my Grill. Its my love for the i4s that have me wanting to try Dye's snowboard goggles. I keep a close watch to Ebay for deals on brand new pairs though the specific ones I want haven't gone up yet.

Paintball is not very profitable for a person if played as a profession. For most people, even if you were a pro, you would still have to have some second job if your truly wanted to live comfortably. There are a number of pros who work within the industry for the added income.
I've been playing for 11 years now and at what I would say is an advanced level. But for some of the same reasons East告de said, I stay away from the political side of things which come along with tourny play and instead just play rec for the enjoyment of playing. I have a crew of dudes with me that all like to roadtrip and look for the best places to play with the best comp rec play can provide.
