    $20 local deal. Also got him to throw in a womans pair he was selling.

    A little rough in a few spots but much better than most floating around these days.

    They are small for me, but I've always loved the look and regret selling my Pearl pair a couple years back.

    I'd say so. A little loose, some peeling by the nose bombs and a few scratches on the lenses, but mint compared to what's being shopped on eBay lately.

    good find man. clean out any parts that are peeling with warm water n soap (standard procedure) and dry thoroughly... that'll stop further corrosion. good luck!

    remember -water is not the main problem.. sweat and oils are!

    Why isn't there more interest in the Magnesium? I remember when they came out, I thought they were slick then, I still do...just curious. I saw something mentioned in a thread a few weeks ago a "problem with magnesium frames", and BriP mentions above that sweat and oils are a problem. I'm assuming the two comments are related to why the line went away possibly.

    After seeing these, man,..so cool, the nose bridge is very reminiscent of the x metal styling. I may need to add them to the ol' wish list.

    They were released with the penny- same technology- flex couplers and spring hinges. And yes, i think they expected the ceramic coating to protect the magnesium more than it actually did... So that killed it. I like em but the corrosion just sucks. Rather get an xmetal..
