    A friend of mine just picked up a pair of the new wiretaps, tungsten / tungsten pol. She's female and they're a men's frame, but I guess a lot of women wear men's Oaks, no biggie...

    They look great and she loves the spring hinges in particular. I know x-metal Half-X has a lot of problems with the spring hinge breaking...

    Has anyone here had any issues with the new wiretaps, hinges or otherwise?

    I have new Square Wire with spring hinges and they are pretty solid. Much more so than my Half X spring..

    I have a new Wiretap and the hinges are very sturdy so far. I have worn them a few times with no issues. The glasses as a whole have a very sturdy feel to them, solid

    They feel very solid to me. I was pleasantly surprised by their construction.

    I saw your "what are you wearing" post... Are those the new wiretaps or the older design? I don't know the difference...

    The new wiretaps are awesome! I had a pair and traded them but will definitely be getting another pair soon. VERY solid.

    I really liked the new Wiretaps, but when I tried them on, they were too narrow for my big melon. Look and in hand feel great though.
