I used to use one, & they work pretty good. Never had it plug up to where I could'nt pull it. Biggest problem was that the lens would scratch up pretty quickly, & the replacement lenses are kind of expensive.

i was told by one guy he tried a machine once with a roll of tear offs, and when it got low they put lines on the tear off so when you almost ran out all of a sudden there were little lines all over your view.
those speedstac 7 tear off i think is the name look pretty good, but pricy. i just use the cheap regular tearoffs and look though the haze.

I've seen a couple of guy's try them, they worked ok, but scratched up after a while, but it was funny to see them trailing 10 foot of used roll fapping around, trailing thier car!

I have run one for yrs now, the trick to not scratching the back shield is to cut that portion of the shield out. Lets you see more clear & the film doesn't touch your main shield either. The one I've been using is one I made from an electric one. Just bought a new manual one for a new helmet for next yr.
