    When I had my 2nd Gen Ti, I could BARELY (under close scrutiny) discern the difference from my Plasma R1. They are so close that they are practically the same. Add to the fact you put Gold Iridium lenses in your Plasma Frames, they look exactly like the 2nd Gen Ti frame with gold lenses lol.

    In fact it's probably optical illusion, but your Plasma frame (w/fire) in the back actually looks lighter than the 2 Plasmas in front of it. The Gold Iridium plays tricks on my eyes...

    The
    The plasma frame at the back is a later 'A' serial frame, so is more polished and will appear lighter due to this. I have never had a problem identifying a titanium finish from a plasma to be honest. The titanium 2nd gen has a much greyer appearance than any plasma I've ever seen and ive had a few.

    It's not the best pic I know, but the front pair is an early plasma and the pair behind is a second gen titanium 'A' serial.
