    Thinking of going with Radars for my next frame. I want some XL Blades, but the lens choices are pretty slim.

    If I buy an XL frame, is there anywhere to get a standard sized nose piece to be able to swap in Range lenses? Or vice versa?

    Also, does anyone have an XL and a Range lens that can compare them size-wise? Wondering if the XL is that much taller, or if they just sit different with the frame higher on the face due to the longer nose piece.

    I don't think you can from others here I think you may just have to find someone with a crap pair or buy two

    I figured that might be the case. I saw someone on here a while back posting a frame they put together with an XL nose on their standard frame, but they obviously had an example of both frames to work with.

    Right now I'm debating getting a Range in Jet Black and adding a G26 lens, or going with the XL in polished black/G26 and adding a different XL lens like +Red.

    What I want is a matte black frame with Range or XL lenses, but matte is only available in Pitch unless I can track down someone to get an SI Radar in Range through.

    Alright, so anyone have Range and XL that can compare them for me?

    If you are after a XL nose piece, I have a retina burn one I'd swap for a standard one

    I don't own any Radars currently. Weighing my options as to the best course of action to acquire what I'm seeking with as little investment as possible.

    Ok, I'll do a comparison photo between the radar path and XL lenses, dont have range lenses, but it will still help I hope
