    I was browsing thru a 2001 catalog and noticed this picture. To me, it damn looks like a Juliet. The orbital's lower contour does not match of a XX. What do you guys think?
    *take note, he was only 15-16 years old when this was taken, a XX X-Metal may have been too big on a teenager's face. This pair suits him perfectly

    I am not really an expert but I agree with you they really seems Juliet more then XX;
    let's wait for an expert opinion...

    Hammerstems, plasma orbitals? Looks like a XX from those two features, the Juliet 24K had gold orbitals IIRC. I agree they look too slim to be XX though.

    custom pair, not a production/part coded issue. juliet orbital and 24k lens, XX stems.

    That picture looks scrunched a little bit, I don't remember Bubba's head quite that melon-like.
    My money is on XX 24K

    yeah its an XX 24k, the pic here is warped. HOWEVER, ichiro suzuki had a one-off juliet made in the vintage 24k colorway, just like this. not that new 24k polished ugly rubbish. :p

    That's the problem...'cause base on the orbital area, it's not an XX at all...the colour combo is the same like the 24k XX, though.
