    This is my first pair of penny's, but how tight should they be? I've changed the ear sock and nose bombs with genuine ones, then changed the nose bomb riverts and perished rubber insets with linegear ones, but they just don't seem as tight as my Juiliets?

    You want them to be an extension?

    They are not as tight as the Juliet due to the spring hindge. You have to judge it based on the tightness of the nosebridge. The Penny tends to be too small for most, that could be why it feels loose.

    The nose should have been designed Rock Solid

    How tight should Penny's be? - image.jpeg My Ducati I just got and told only wore a few times, given to him at Moto GP in Italy then thrown in a draw until sold to me are as tight as I dunno, almost scratch my head as I put them on.....I'm only a small fella, lol and was expecting penny's to be the same or a bit tighter, although they don't fall off, they just seem a bit rubbish?

    Yeah, Penny may have the smallest orbitals but because of the spring hinges they don't fit as tight as Juliets.

    Mars has the tightest fit of the x-metals.

    Ok fab that helps, it's just not ever having seen another pair or owning anything than 3 pairs of juliets, I suppose it's difficult to compare.

    Penny always feels like it's going to fall off if I look down. Wish they wouldn't have done the spring hinges. Would have been a more solid design if they had stuck to the formula.
