    Hi All,

    I recently just purchased my first pair of used Juliets and got them Serviced. It still has a bit of "wiggle" in the bridge piece area but pretty snug in general. Is this normal? Should I send it back to have them reinforce the service that I already paid for?

    Also, how would I gain privileges to post/reply in the Exchange forums? I am interested in buying some Oakleys for sale there but I have no way of replying to posts.

    Thanks!

    The forum rules will explain the exchange section. There will always be a degree of wiggle with x metals because of the rubber bridge inserts. This is normal, unless they are loose to the point of hangingon the rivets. Welcome to the forum!

    Yeah, but a couple of people I work with, i've tried on their juliets and they are Stiff. I can tell mine (even after the tune-up) are not quite as stiff as theirs. It's not a huge difference by any means, but I notice it. I'm just wondering why Oakley is not able to replicate the stiffness like a brand new Juliet?

    Both my Juliets and XXs are slightly loose even after the tune up. I've always thought there's supposed to be a slight give in them or they'd be uncomfortable.

    That is why I like X-Man's job of tightening the nose bridge. I sent my R2 to him for refinishing and tune-up and his work is simply par exellence, much better than Oakley's tune-up service. Here's a link where you can read more about his work and testimonials from other forum members: http://www.oakleyforum.com/threads/the-x-man-customs-corner.14085/

    I like my X-metal nose bridge really "stiff" so that they last way longer before needing any service, if ever.
