    Most of the metals come in the same finishes. Most of the difference is in the shape/style. Here is a good resource to check out model #'s, finished and lens info with pictures.
    The Oakley Review - Catalogue Listing then the xmetal tab.
    Others on the forum know way for than I for specifics, Brip and xmetalmaniac to name a few.

    XX is very similar to the Juliet, but a bit larger, and has hammer stems.

    TiO2 is a finish option, has X Metal colored nose bridge and stems, and plasma orbitals.

    Penny is smaller than Juliets and has slightly more aggressive orbitals. It also has spring hinges.

    Half X is a half wire frame, similar in size to the Juliet kind of. No flex coupler, different hinge style.

    Those, plus the X Squared, Juliet, Mars, Romeo, and Romeo 2 are all 8 of the X Metals.

    There's also the Mars Crater which is a Mars with holes around the orbitals.

    Mars Leather as well. And all of the dozens of special editions of Juliets including some Ichiros that have hammer stems I believe.

    pennys are the ones to have haha! was the x- men 2 and 3 one. juliets were used in x-men 1 and black hawk down. trying to get 1 of each of the 8 models will be a good place to start for your collecting!

    Pennys have really grown on me, and since we discussed my "issue" with Juliets, Pennys are my go to metals now and I want more :)

    haha Rob, pennys really area fabulous design... i really wished thatthe juliet was a larger penny. the spring hinges save the flex coupler fromunnecessary stress. im loving the spring hinge and flex coupler combo- the mag switch is the same, and as of this moment my favourite frame (design wise) haha (the magnesium issues are annoying though)

    I wish the Penny and Mars Crater worked for me. I sold them as I could never wear them out.
