    Curious if anyone tried any of the following in any frame, especially an x metal: g30 black, vr50 gold, light positive red, vr28 blue?

    Just seeking an unusual lens color for a future project. Thanks in advance.

    For some reason, @Carrera1963 comes to mind. I could be wrong though.

    I have tried quite a wide range of lenses, some outside the norm, including most of those bases above but not the specific iridium applications listed. No experience of light +red, but intrigued to hear what you think.

    Definitely have a look at some of the Prizms out there, plus some more on the way.

    One that I will look out for is the Prizm Sporting Clay: SI Tombstone | Page 5 | Oakley Forum

    Purple base like the old G26 but without the iridium. Probably not much real world use but could make for an interesting display pair.

    I have a VR28 Gold iridium polarized in one of my X-metal Juliets:

    Looks a bit less plain than normal VR28 BIP

    Half Jacket 1.0 XLJ (it was one of 3 polarized lenses in an array).
    Cut it first for my XX (it is barely large enough) since Oakley were out of lenses for that one and recut it to fit my Juliet when I traded off the XX. Polarization is still perfect after the cut:dance2::cool-33:
