    Can anybody assist me in how to obtain authentic Oakley polarized lenses for my xmetal xx??? I like the red mirrorized one, like the one cyclops wore on x-men movie. I have walleva from eBay and they are thin, so when I put them on, the lens wobble.. At time one lens coms off from the frame..... Please help me out... Thanks in advance.

    custom cut is your only option. If you want to maintain the same lens curvature then your only red lens option is ruby iridium polarized

    OO red polar is becoming rare as the suitable donor lenses are getting phased out

    Not to mention the OO red and +red doesn't give the X-men Cyclops effect like the OP was looking for ;)

    If you're an X-man or cyclops fan, then for red polar lenses in your metal XX the only options for maintaining the same lens base curve is:

    1. ruby for red mirror
    2. fire for red/orange mirror (varies greatly depending on the batch as they're generally more orange and less red)
    3. +red or OO red for red/blue mirror

    All would have to be custom cut.

    Oh and becareful with those walleva lenses... I had a pair to try out and the lens cracked as if a layer of the lens split off. Looks great, but I rate them poorly on usability & quality.
