    I just received some new ruby lenses from Ausoakley and they look Awesome!!!

    My dilemma is this:

    * I like ( no LOVE) the "outside" look of ruby's ... always have ...its what attracted me to X-Metals in the first place ... but the lens tint is SO boring

    * My Fire Iridiums are older, tiny scratches and not as 'cool' looking as the Ruby's but the lens tint is so awesome to drive in...

    Thoughts?

    (TBH i've thought of finding a cheap set of lenses of Fire Iridium to stick in my Flaks or Split's to i can have the best of all worlds ... still looking)

    I'm a big fan of original but what matters most is what you are happier with. I would go with the function part of your statement as the deciding factor where you clearly mentioned that the tint is great for you with driving. In this case I would say it's better to feel good than to look good.

    Fire Irid is great for driving on overcast days ... but i dont find the frames the greatest, coverage is a little lacking sometimes ... but Juliets are Juliets ... ;)
