With the red flag situation in unadilla, nice time to talk about vision with the bad weather.

Wich roll off goggles do u like?
I think the airbrake roll off system doesn't work well..
It will stay stuck or the film will roll of by itself. Do like the long rolls on them.

100%?
Prospect?

I'm an Oakley guy, but Scott roll offs have always worked best for me.

Used roll offs for a long time, the Oakleys are terrible.
Best ones I have used were Scott ones which had lots of tiny 'bobbles' on the lens to stop the film sticking. I used them at a beach race, had water running down both sides of the film and still no problems

I run xc and most of the guys that do use roll offs, honestly the best pair of roll offs Ive ever had were dragon mdx's. Ive had almost all of them, the only wants I want to try are the 100% forecast as the film is 2x as wide as usual. The same with the airbrakes. The scott's used to have a dimpled lens and it worked fantastic to keep the lens from sticking, a year ago I bought a pair of scott hustle roll offs and after pulling the cord a few times theyd jam up. Garbage quality for a $85 pair of goggles. The new scotts have this rectangle piece of film that keeps the film from sticking, that in my opinion sucks. The film sliding over the lens in the middle where theres no support build up a bit of static charge and keep the rolloff film stuck to the lens like glue. What I have done is take a thumb tack on from the inside of the goggle make my own little dimples.

Yeah? You guys like those dimpled lenses? I bought then in error once and sent them back. They looked crazy to see through to me. Can't the little wiper keep water out or a few pulls clear it up?

remember the EFS? electric ones. How about when guys would put fishing line across the lens to keep them from sticking. I seemed to always have an issue, but at least you weren't out of tearoffs..
