    So I've been thinking of adding the Polished Carbon frame to by X-metal pairs and heard there are some issue with the consistency of the color/finish across the frame.
    I have a friend in the UK who has had multiple pairs but could only find a couple of pairs that looked consistent across the frame
    I never heard or knew about this.
    Any pointers (sorry no pics to offer to show off the flaws)?
    Thanks in advance Folks!!

    My polished carbon XS is fine but it's the only one I can comment on.

    It often seems like on this forum that "want" and "need" are treated the same... ;)

    Personally I prefer regular carbon. I have that on a few frames. Aside from being a fingerprint magnet, I think the polished carbon looks more like plastic.
