    I currently have an X Squared Plasma with Fire Polarized. I would like to ask for opinions for my next Oakley purchase.

    Option # 1:

    X Squared Carbon with OO Black Iridium Polarized + extra Ruby Iridium Lens
    (I figured I can mix and match all three lenses and two frames I will have on hand. I think I would love the carbon/ruby combination)

    Option # 2:

    X Squared X-Metal with Ruby Iridium + extra VR28 Polorized Lens

    Thank you in advance for your opinions and insights.

    I have both the cabon and the x-metal colorway and prefer the x-metal. It tends to match more of my clothes and just commands Oakley attention. I've never tried the OO lenses, but I can say I really like the vr28. Never tried ruby either, but they sound like they would work for me. My vote is x-metal.

    Thanks for your opinion. I also heard that the Carbon finish scratches easily exposing the silver color underneath.

    I've got the carbon frame and just fitted ruby iridiums in them. They look sick! I think you'll definitely love the combination. The X-Metal frame is next on my list :tongue:.

    my vote is your Option # 2: X Squared X-Metal with Ruby Iridium + extra VR28 Polorized Lens.

    VR28 are pretty cool lenses and the combination of ruby with x-metal is sweet too . . . try to get the darker ruby's!

    Having them all, I like the plasma, x-metal and polished. Carbon are just ok. Give the polished a look, they are pretty sweet!

    Have you considered mixing it up a bit and buying Juliets?
