    Recently Got an extra Oakley Penny Plasma frame from my brother w/c he kept for display a long time ago. Anyways upon receiving it yesterday already customized it w/ my Ultra Deep Ruby (+Red) Lens, Now it looks quite Bloody Good

    Hi man, I'm always a big fan of your collection.....I recently got myself a Penny which I am currently making it out to look like the one you shared here... got a question though, the Penny I got was also described as non serial plasma frame, and was a bit surprised when I found out that there is supposed to be only titanium frame for Penny and no Plasma, the titanium and plasma look very similar though... Now I'm confused? Is it really titanium colored frame or a plasma colored frame?Thanks

    Hi there qtrain, just my thought exactly, it is not a plasma but a titanium colored frame, but like the pic above and some internet pic I've seen, the titanium color for penny seems like a plasma colored one, and the Penny I have compared to plasma xsquared I managed to look upon in one local O-store here has a very little difference in color.Am I making sense here? lol
    Can you confirm for me that the titanium color for penny is like a plasma color on other x-metal model? I definitely am 100% sure,although a non serial, the Penny I got here is a legit/authentic one.

    They are kind of hard to tell apart if you don't know the difference. My Titanium Penny almost looks exactly the same as my X Squared plasma. But it is a fact that there was never a plasma Penny unless you have the X Man make you one!

    Yea idk why the difference in names.

    And even the x man doenst make a true plasma as it is some kind of coating hence all the issues with it peeling, etc.

    Yep.

    But also, the titanium colorway is very different between Romeos/Juliet's and pennies.

    yeah thats because by the time pennys came out, titanium was already in second generation. i have a picture somewhere of a titanium gen 2 juliet next to a titanium penny. basically spot on..
