    Hi everyone. Please need some help or explanation, What is the difference of Penny polished and titanium frame? I mean to say, what kind of metal are this two? Are they the same Titanium alloy? Thank you in advance for the answer...

    Yes, they are the same Ti alloy metal, just finished differently. The polished finish is shiny while the Ti finish is more muted.

    Juliets rather than Pennys but the same thing holds true - http://www.oakleyforum.com/threads/the-9-oem-juliet-frame-finishes.45047/

    The alloy is the same but the finish used varies. The Penny doesn't have as many finishes as the Juliet though, just copper (which the Juliet doesn't have, although some have plated Juliets with real copper), polished, titanium and x-metal. There is some debate over whether a TiO2 Penny was actually released or not.

    Got both....the titanium finish looks better. IMHO...the polished looks somewhat fake. But....I bought a poloshed MM watch so it matches. Especially once I get the chrome polar iridium lenses put it. Bling bling!!

    But yeah....I like the X-Metal, than the titanium, than the polished. Having the X-Man do a Penny and Juliet frame for me in Ceracote black (with 24K polar iridium lenses)....those will look nice!!

    I've seen/heard of discoloration in early plasma and Ti finishes, and degradation/flaking in others, but not with polished AFAIK...
