    I lost my Xmetals in the lake this weekend and was wondering if I could take a magnet and possibly find them?

    You need carbon steel or iron for them to be magnetic. There may be some in there (X-Metal is an alloy of 6 metals or something), but it's mostly titanium, which is non-magnetic.

    Thats what I thought. Guess I need to find someone to sell me a pair of x squared now. Those were my favorite sunglasses.

    That's lame... I once lost a pair of Juliets for a few years :headbang:

    I guess its 'too soon' for jokes about them being not being so 'hydrophobic' anymore?

    Unfortunately no, any titanium alloy or within this group of metals are none magnetic.

    Newbie here. If the lenses are hydrophobic, will the water continue to repel even under water?
