    I recently purchased my first pair of Penny's. I have been a big fan of the Juliets and they fit great. The nose bridge feels tight on these, but I noticed they do not hug my head as well as the Juliets. Are these suppose to fit tight or are they suppose to be a little loose? I noticed they have springs that make them wider but I am not sure if that has to do with anything. Any insight would be appreciated.

    I have both the Penny and the Juliet. Owing to the Penny's spring hinge mechanism it will feel a little loose compared to the Juliets (or the other X-metals(excluding the Half X) such as the Romeos, XX, Mars, and X-Squared) which rely on their silicon rubber couplers that make for a more snug fit.

    The springs in the pennys are absolutely retarded small.......the Achilles heal of the penny......the nosebridge should have been designed solid

    That's what I figured. Thanks for the response.

    Is there anyway to make these tighter around the head X-MAN? Will replacing the temple washers with Juliet temple washers make any difference? Thanks.

    I need to limit the amount of travel on the plungers.
