    Seems like the carbon / ruby colorway has been most popular. It's the one that first caught my eye, but with everybody getting that one it'll be pretty common. And I think the all-black frame is a little boring...

    While the plasma/fire one looks pretty cool, but the clear o-matter parts don't provide as much contrast, looks better with the dark o-matter like in the XRaw. So...

    Before:

    After:

    And there you have it. The first (AFAIK) XRaw clone, one that I can wear without any fear. And a carbon/ruby that stands out (for better or worse) from the pack.

    And being just a simple parts swap, I can always put them back to OEM if I want to.

    I do like the color combo on the clone better for sure, the other I'd say is a toss up. Very nice!

    like washi wrote - i don't like the clear parts.
    either swapping like kronin did or a painting job and the pair looks so much better. . .

    I think Oakley should kill the clear O Matter pieces on these new x metals and just put them out in black. It looks better on every frame.

    Am I right in thinking that the darker O Matter bits are translucent @kronin323 ?

    The ones pictures here are translucent. The ones that shipped with the Raw model were completely opaque black. The same is true for the Plasma/Sapphire Badman.
