    I just got a pair of original Fives off eBay and need to find some new lenses for them. I can't find anyone making them, so I figured I'd take it to the experts. :cool:

    Thanks! It's the FMJ 9MM with Black Iridim. I had the same ones back in '98. They were retired unceremoniously by a flying 2 liter bottle of Sunkist during Spring Break '01 in Panama City (luckily I wasn't wearing them at the time).. I'd been looking for this pair for about a year now. I think they're getting pretty rare. They're in good shape, but the lenses could be a little better. Nothing affecting vision, but would like them to be "smoother" on the outside. :big_boss:

    I had a Brown Tortoise pair back in 98/99. The cracked over the left orbital and Oakley replaced them. Then they cracked again...and they were not making them anymore, So they sent me the Polished RootBeer Five 2.0, which I still have.

    Yeah, mine were my first non-Frogskins, since they were no long being made at the time my last pair of those broke. I loved the streamlined look. Very late-90s. I was sad when they broke. I went with some Square Wire 2.0s, which I still have 10 years later, but hardly ever wear b/c I'm back on the Frogs. I'd say the Fives are my second favorites. Good mix of form and function.
