    Hello,

    am planning to buy a pair of those Carbon Blade Ferrari.....

    I am a bit reluctant right now coz i have been seeing reports of lens screws popping off the frames... Is this a regular thing or just isolated cases??? Am sure they are not as sturdy as my circa 2006 Juliet polished Frame fire iridium polarized....They just kind of caught my fancy..

    Would love to hear from you carbon blade owners be them regular or ferrari owners.....

    Thanks in advance

    I have been wearing Ferrari Carbon Blades with prescription lenses regularly for the past six months. The Rx lenses are heavier than the standard non-Rx lenses, so they may put more stress on the screws. I have had no problems with the frames at all. In fact, I like them so well that I have purchased more pairs.

    Well, it pops out if you sit on/smash the frame. And it's not really the screw. It's the metal insert in the carbon. But they can be fixed

    so , they dont just pop out randomly if the glasses are handled properly??? coz that is my concern... im worried that they might just pop right off randomly even if the glasses are handled with care.... and i do handle my glasses with care especially those upwards of $300....:)

    If you are taking care of them you really should not have a problem. Like @qtrain23 said

    If you get the Ferrari carbon blades with the Ferrari logo etched into the lower left corner of the left lens, I recommend you try on a pair before buying to make sure you won't find the logo too distracting. When I first tried on the Ferrari carbon blades, I was surprised how visible the logo was. I had to wear them a week or so before my brain learned how to filter out the logo.
