    I went on somewhat of a buying spree recently. There are many good reasons to get a new pair of glasses.
    "I have been looking for these for ever"
    "but it was such a good deal"
    Or the combo…
    "How can I pass on that deal, I have been looking for those forever"
    I had my share of all of those over the last month (or so).
    I found a last gen X-metal/Ruby Juliet in the good deal category with a X-metal vault included.

    I tracked down a Crater in great shape that fell into the looking for forever crowd. It wasn't too bad of a deal either…

    I forgot another category. I came across a Romeo with a perfect frame and pretty good lenses.
    "Why not?!?"

    I thought I was done for a while, but then the combo… I couldn't refuse a deal on a Titanium Romeo with the second gen shiny finish and very nice lenses. No spider cracks. This thing is awesome!

    That's a great buying spree, and all those rationalizations are perfectly valid. Especially when combined.

    I did have another one as well...I questioned whether I could call it a full set without a Crater. If you don't have a hammerstem Juliet, could you really say you had every frame...:idk:
    Way too easy to justify!:D

    Thank you. I had only seen pictures of a 2nd gen Titanium R1 and jumped at the chance to get one. It matches my 2nd gen Juliet perfectly... Now for a Plasma R1...:crazypilot:(or two) :behindsofa:

    Wow. That's a hell of a spree. Very nice pickups man. I like the crater especially. ;)

    Me too! I bought my first Mars to have one of every style. I've said quite a few times, I don't like round lenses. Then the strangest thing happened... I started to like them. Then the Crater became an object of my desire and found its way into my collection. Thank you
