    I am in the market for my 1st X-Metal but not sure which style to choose. I haven't been able to try any of them on. The O frames I wear most are Fives Squared, Jawbone, Flak Jacket XLJ, and Straight Jacket II. I owned some Crankcases but found they touched my eyebrows and were uncomfortable on the side of my head after 30 mins. Here are some x-metals I am considering:

    I found 2 Juliets; 1 is complete BNIB with black iridium lenses and x-metal frame. The other has plasma iridium lenses and titanium frame but only comes with a metal vault, no box or coin. He did not say how many times it was worn.

    The XX I found is complete, with very little use, and has 24k iridium lenses and 24k frame.

    The Penny was worn 4 times and has ruby lenses and titanium frame.

    I am also considering a polished Half-X on here with VR50 lenses.

    I appreciate any input into which ones are the best investment and also if there are others you would choose if you could only own 1 x-metal. Thank you.

    If you could only own 1 X-Metal, which style? - juliet4.JPG

    I would say you should go with the Juliets.

    It would be a Juliet, no question.

    Probably the below, maybe the polished carbon.

    So I will advocate the Juliet too. If you could only own 1 X-Metal, which style? - image.jpeg

    Thank you for the replies. It does seem like Juliets are the most popular with members here. I am waiting to hear back from the seller with the LNIB complete Juliet that is in the 1st picture I posted. Funny thing is I thought you were all crazy for spending so much on one pair of glasses when I first joined. Hopefully I will just buy 1 pair of x-metals. Nobody ever buys more than one do they?;)
