    I started buying Oakley's a few moths ago and I honestly had not heard of x-metals till I joined the forum. Finally I decided to get me a x-metal. After doing a little research and asking @kronin323 some questions I went ahead and picked this pair up. Carbon frame/Ruby lenses. The lenses have some scratches but the frames are in great condition. I will be sending them out to @THE X-MAN for some work when I decide on what new lens I am going with.

    Awesome pick up man! What was your first thought upon opening these up? It's been so long since I first handled a x metal I don't remember the initial impressions. But even now I still get a little excited when a new x metal finds its way into my possession :)

    To tell you the truth first thing I thought was how solid and well made they felt.

    Well though it appears you need replacement lenses, now that you actually have them, are you sure they need a tune-up right off the bat? My threshold is when they keep sliding from the top of my head when I go indoors...

    They are a little floppy at the nose bridge, so if I have them on and shake my head a little they slide down my nose some.

    And it starts. Say goodbye to your savings. You're gonna love these the more you wear them. Then you'll have to have more. We should have XA meetings.
