    Well my plans are to make a Ichiro clone in a xx frame. Big problem is I have no clue what lens to use. I was going to have the Dr do a set but need some advice.

    IIRC he doesn't like to use the shield lenses from the Radar, M, et al. They don't have enough spherical geometry.

    I am wanting to do a Blue edition. X metal frame with blue rubbers and blue lenses. I dont want ice lenses because it is not correct. Not enough color change. Does not have to have signature just color. Worried blue iridium would not be correct color.

    One of the polished Ichiro's has Blue Iridium :confused:. The only Ichiro with an X-Metal frame has Slate Iridium lenses...

    The Ichiro Blue Iridium is the older grey lense based Blue Iridium I believe and not the current VR based Blue Iridium.

    Understand it is a 00 blue iridium. I know the carbon was what I was cloning with the x metal frame since carbon is not available on the XX. I dont like shiny so polished is not an option.

    OO Blue Iridium is a grey based lense.
