Does anyone have these? If so how do you like them?
I was checking these out as well and it seems to be their version of +Red while Red Mirror is like the older Ruby.
i have tanzanite lens on my custom polished romeo 1. I like them so far. no complaints about it.
Nice polished Romeo 1, what was original coating before you polished it?
it was titanium finish.
Sup Mauka! I have the tanzanite in my R1 also. Compared to OEM and VL, I'd say the Linegear lenses are a close 2nd to OEM. The one thing I notice is that they scratch really easy, just simple cleaning with a micro bag left fine swirl marks on mine...but I'm anal also, so I notice those fine details. Other than that, the color shift tends to show a lot of purple (just like in jetta's pics), more so than I expected. If you like more purple, then I'd recommend them...but if you're looking for more red overall, I'd go with the garnet or mirror red.
Here's mine mounted in my R1...you can kind of see the cleaning swirls in the last pic...
Man, the Romeo's look real nice! I hope I can get one someday. Can your eyes be seen while wearing? Linegear says no but the lenses look kinda light.
Ulua, I like the way it has the red->purple->blue fading. Can use any of those colors for the rubber parts and it will still match. I really like the Ice style lenses. Love my Ice lenses in my new Half Jacket 2.0's
yea, your eyes can be seen depending on the light.
Only if light gets in behind the lens. They are very thick lenses to begin with. The same as if light gets in behind an oak iridium. I have the green/jade ones.
