    Disappointment - image.jpg So I know I'm going to get a ton of hate. But I must share, I have loved Oakley o matter frames as far back as I wore sunglasses. But never had an xmetal, so I bought a pair. They were exactly as the seller described no fault on his end at all. I just do not like them at all! The fit the weight the feel... Is anyone else in the same boat here?

    The problems you noted are exactly why I love them. The weight, fit, feel...

    My first pair of Juliet's were handed to me BNIB by a friend more then 15 years ago, I wore half jackets all the time. So I was not fond of them at all, I sold them for $200 and I kick myself for doing that. They were polished with ice iridium. I guess it was the hammer stem that k didn't care for. Damn I wish I kept them.

    Try giving them a chance. You may regret letting them go.

    I always wore O Matter when I first heard about Oakley and joined. My first pair of x metals were Juliets also. Back then I did not like the way they felt. I thought they were too small. I quickly sold them. Now I have grown to appreciate the material, design and customizability. X Metals will grow on you.

    One thing about Oakley collecting is most of us go thru stages... Xmetal, sports frames, casual frames . After a few years your taste in things alway change!! When you get sick of your o-matter it good have something to switch too. I say keep them a few months and see if they grow on you!! If not you can alway trade them for some dope limited edition o-matter pair!!

    I've owned almost all, sold them all, not a real fan.

    I can appreciate them, but I'm not a collector of the metal.
