    While cruising eBay for some spare parts for the wife's e wires I noticed that there were a lot if other designs. Specifically the a and c's.


    What were the differences with these shades?

    A wires were from the late 90s I got mine in 98, C wires original were the first titanium I think, E wires were similar to A but had a more balanced oval lens.

    O-Review will give you the best info.

    Thanks guys. I dug through o review before posting this. I was kind looking for fit and how they compared to each other.


    I found the differences between the tightrope, the whisker and splinter her

    But didn't finduch on the a c e as some would say one model was large and others would say that model is small.

    I have an A and an E-2.1 The A has curved ear stems with only the back ends of the stems touching my head, the E2.1 have a straighter ear stem more like traditional glasses, with a spring hinge. I thought they were more comfortable with the spring hinge.
