    Title basically says it. I seem to get some really bad distortion from my half-x BIP. What gives?

    Distortion how? Is it wavy left to right when you turn your head slowly? There is a very good chance the lens is not seated properly in the orbital groove and the orbital torx screw may be overly tightened pulling the outer edge of the lens inward.

    I have seen overly tightened lenses in the Half X even create a gap as if the OEM lens was cut too small. Thus pushing just enough on the edge of the lens causing it to bow just a bit.

    It seems to be mostly in the bottom of the lens. It isn't extremely wavy, more just that my depth perception is thrown off quite a bit when I look at the ground in front of me, which creates noticeable distortion when I move my head.
