Ofna foams are much better than prolines. Prolines break down before half the tread gone.

I use OFNA foams in all my Pro-line tires. The Pro-line don't seem to hold up as long. I typically will wear out the foam before I do the rubber at most of the tracks I race at. A foam in good condition is just as important as a tire tread.
