    I have the Heater frame & would like to have a different lens than the Heater lens.
    Are there any other style lenses that would fit? Strike, Hybrid, etc.
    I have heard some lenses will not fit the old school Heaters.
    Any help is appreciated.

    The M Frame is universal to all of the appropriate lenses. If you have an older generation of frames I would not suggest a new lens as the size variations over the years can leave you with a combination that may crack the older frames. First generation frames likely won't fit, second generation may be tight and can easily result in a cracked frame.

    If you post photos of what you've got I can tell you what it is. If you take a picture of it on your face I can try and suggest a lens size that might suit you better.

    The current lens sizes in decreasing size are; Heater, Agro (3.0), Strike, Hybrid, Sweep, Hybrid S. There have also been Slash, a previous version of Hybrid, V, 67, and Strip lens sizes that were sold with the 1st and 2nd generation of M Frames.

    I know the lens has attaching tabs on the Heater lens. Not sure of other lens fitting this frame.

    That's a newer frame. Buy any lens/size and it should fit.

    I say should because there has always been variations in frames and lenses that can cause a fit to be too tight or too loose. If you bring it to a store they'll check the fit for you.

    Just be sure to clean out the frame's lens channel to keep the new lens from scratching on dirt in there.

    Heater is my fave. Such a sick looking lens!
