    hhaha the only thing Xmetal about the half-X is the material used. It has nothing that the Xmetal line stands for, design wise - no flex couplers, Jet intake icons, or a sleek and creative design. Its basically a fat titanium wire

    and yes, the sickness.. haha! we all got it bud! Ive got at least one of every model, 9+juliets, 3 pennys, 2 romeo2's... slippery slope, as they say.

    I have numerous Xmetals, as you all know. I will say that when I obtained my first Half X I was intrigued by the design of the spring hinges, which they are quite unique in their own way. If they are not properly seated on your face correctly, they actually can look crooked.

    My only complaint about them is the lens, its too big for that frame.... The lens needs to be shortened, IMO
