    I was just looking at pictures, and noticed a big difference in the ruby lenses in 2 X Squareds I've owned. I guess if you're lucky you can still get a good "batch". Anyone want to look at their pairs and see what kind of shade they have?

    Here is the pair I ended up trading off...notice it looks more like fire...

    It varies wildly. I had a set of XS Rubies some time ago that were just short of being Positive Red in color and others that, as you say, look like Fire.

    Jive...yes, I took a pair of XS earsocks put them next to the Juliet earsocks and trimmed an equal amount of both ends with a super sharp razor blade.

    Hm? Item # 170767554710

    Looks good, but "Gen 1" and Hydrophobic?

    I'm not paying $145 for those.

    wow, didn't think that joining this community would be expensive LOL. after a few days of being a member here, I already caught the metal bug LOL, so got a pair of XS x-metal/Ruby on the way. Hopefully they will be a good batch of ruby and not a fruby :)
