    Has anyone worked with split/wind jackets lately? Does anyone know what donor lenses I can use which are in the new line of Oakley, i.e not big taco? Ideally I would like to find prizm's for donors

    Any help is appreciated

    Thanks

    As for the splits there is not alot of info for them and unfortunately they have been discontinued (as you all know), so im hunting down solutions :crazy:

    @sybiria
    The problem is that in addition to its own popularity, split jacket lenses are also a good donor for X-Metal custom cuts. You can still find them once in a while here on the forum (after you earn access to the exchange or purchase a premium membership). However, thanks to a low supply and high demand, they aren't cheap.

    As for donors for non-OEM colors, I don't know of anything that would work off the top of my head, particularly if you are looking for Prizm. As mentioned before, Big Taco is probably a good candidate but is hard to find and not cheap. I just got a bunch of my donors cut for XX so I can't really do any checking for you at this time.

    @Kuztomized i dont mean prizm aftermarket (which they dont offer for the splits, there are a few prizms but for juliets etc). I ment for the prizm line that is offered by oakley now. The lens i am eyballing in particular is "prizm salt water polarized"
    I think half and flak are too small
    I how about the radars? Or is the conture off?
    These are the candidates:

    thank you for that...quality slipped and was costing too much for lens failures...plus makes a huge mess and makes painting in the same area more difficult
