    Hey All,

    Still fairly new to the forum and learning about all things X-Metal after having mine for 15 years or so. Looking to get as close to OEM as possible and know they are hard to come by for my R1s, Juliets, and so on. Wondering what we think about in general of the replacement options out there. So far I think the companies out there offering such lenses are Revant, Fuse, and Linegear.

    I ordered a set of Linegear lenses but am getting quite frustrated as it seems to be stuck in customs for a quite a while now. I also hear there's some fellows here who custom cut lenses from larger lenses, who might those folks be?

    Thanks for all the help, sorry for all the noob questions...

    yo bro... linegear is the best for aftermarket lenses... but its better to get custom cut lenses from Original oakley donors... you have @InfiniteHero ... @xmetalmaniac ... @MachineHead among others ... for your lenses... for your pairs you could do tune ups (tighten up loss nose bridges) from @THE X-MAN !

    Hey guys
    Do the guys that cut the lenses from donor lenses just cut them with a dremel or something like it?
    Sorry being a "newbe" im just curious :confused:
    Also are big tacos the only lenses to cut juliets from?
    Cheers
