    So after handling several X metals for the past month, most of them came with very trashed lenses, I kept a couple and decided to the a fun video where I can test how much punishment they can take. I've got a set of OEM Fire Iridium polarized which are scratched to hell, and a set of aftermarket (should I say their name, its not one of the forum sponsors) Irish Green color which I got free on a deal (they suck, they just darken everything and visibility is horrible) this way we can compare Oakley durability vs a Aftermaket product. I've only got 2 tests in mind, so I need your help wth other ideas, I don't know how much the lenses will last, but I'll try everything I can until they are literally in pieces. So what's on those crazy minds? Let me know!

    Test 1: Run Over with car (I think this has happened to other people with frames, I'll try the lenses alone)
    Test 2: Hammer
    Test 3: Dropping from a certain height?
    Test 4: ???
    Test 5: ???

    ps. Don't own a gun, so I can shoot them. My brother is a chemist so we might get somewhere there. I'll do stupid tests as long as I don't get hurt

    I don't know if it is legal to have one in Mexico, my guess is not, but I might ask for an airsoft or BB gun

    I have no idea how that works, but I honestly don't care. Don't need a gun really, lived here my entire life and I've never got mugged so I can't complain.
    Now back to topic, shooting them will obviously destroy them, so we need something more plausible to happen, dropping them from the stairs/Balcony, running over them with the car, the hammer hit would compare to something like getting hit in the face by a golf ball or something. I could torch 'em, but that be the end of it

    Lay them on a concrete block and drop another on it, from a predetermined height

    In that case I could end with a lovely bonfire, and if the survive that, then the concrete block while playing "Damn it feels good to be a gangsta". You know, just to keep the office space flow going :cool-20:
