    Hello All,
    Brand new here, no flaming please. I just bought a pretty messed up pair of what I believe are Square wire gen 2's. Polished up very nice and am now happy to add them to my polished collection. They have the "Hammerfin" style earsocks on them.
    Question 1: Are these actually what I believe they are? Being Square Wires or Big Square wires? Please help.
    Question 2: Anyone here have any OEM replacement lenses for these?
    Question 3: I am looking for 2 pairs of "hammerfin" earsocks. One black, and one white / pearl for my T-Wires.
    Question 4: If these are no longer available, what is the best quality replacement lenses that I can get?

    Hard to tell with the flash but it looks like a square wire Gen II, not to be confused with a 2.0

    looks like a big square wire I believe. Not Square Gen 2. A Wire Socks were used on later wires like T Wire Gen 2 and Big Squares.

    Just spoke with a CSR at Oakley. He was insistent that they are gen 1 A Wires.

    Thoughts?

    Possibility of getting lenses?

    Great News!!!!

    I found someone to cut me a set of replacements. Now off to the Vault to buy a pair of oversized lenses.

    Looking forward to Dr. Chop to hit the frames in white for me. Very excited!!!

    Nope. After a bunch of emails with Chop, we concluded that they were Gen 2 Square Wires.
