    Hey all, I am wondering if Oakley ever made the frogskin frame in a light weight metal alloy of some kind ?
    LIke the Oakley frogskin fallout kind of look like brushed metal but I was disappointed to find they actually are not!..
    Any ideas on the most in-destructable frogskin frame made ?

    the only real metal frogs I suppose would be the lx frame. there is a metal skeleton running through the accitate frame. mind my spelling. or any chrome fmj frogs. I suppose there is a metal skin over those.

    just keep your eyes open on here and eBay. the koston craftsman has zero metal or resembles metal at all. I just had 2 but I sold a pair last week to a fellow collector. I also had 2 of the Supreme gold and chrome but both of them now down to one. I will look for you as well.

    Unfortunately there has never been a metal Frogskins frame, but I would love to have a pair if they ever made one!

    A full on metal Frog would be cool. I could get into something like that. This post grabbed my attention for a minute.

    Hey thanks all, Interesting, ya I thought they had made some out of a special alloy however now that I think about it, It may have been a health and safety issue, Ie if you crash your dirt bike and the arm of the glasses penetrate the skull that would not feel too good. :)

    There are actually model with different metal alloy used to build frame so it is not actually a safety issue as mentioned. Having a frogskins with metal alloy is a bit impractical, surely it will be too heavy regardless of the alloy used and might cost high.
