    Picked up another set of X Metall XX's. The non-24K part is significantly different than my other ones.

    Have these been changed or is there just this much discrepancy between colors???

    Thanks for your help.

    The top pair looks a lot smoother as well. I'd say generational differences.

    Looks like the top 1 is a later generation.

    I believe the top one either is Gen 2 with serial or Gen 3 without serial and the bottom part is Gen 1. They change the finish on the plasma orbitals because of some problems on fading upon using it from time to time And plasma Gen 1 fades that is why they change it to a smoother finish. There are more metal head experts here that can chime in on the details.

    The top one is definitely Gen 3. the bottom one is Gen one or two. list the serial number and It will tell you which one it is.
    Early Juliet and Gen 1 tio2 have the same bone colored finish.

    I have three of them and this is normal
