    Yeah it's @salj838 if I remember correctly...

    Cuts are usually more but they're worth it for the OEM optics...

    I love these glasses. I think the R2 is the most underrated x metal. (Maybe the half X) but I think these are awesome! I would have more if parts weren't so hard to come by. OEM lenses for these things are almost impossible to find. Coins are impossible to find... I have 1 R2 and love it. Would love a x metal finish one or a polished...

    Wow that's a loaded question that's been beaten to death here on the forum and touches a lot of nerves. I suggest you do some forum searching for more info. But, in a nutshell, LG lenses are probably the best of the aftermarkets, but all aftermarkets have inferior optical quality to OEM and devalue your Oaks. Display pieces, fine. Wear pieces, you're much better off with OEM.

    You might want to read this thread:
