    I recently bought a pair of second hand Oakley Xsquared (Carbon) and I noticed that they are a little bit lighter compared to my Oakley Juliet (Plasma). I just want to know if it's true or the weight depends on the type of frame (Carbon, Plasma, Polish, etc.).
    .
    Though the metal looks and feel sturdy, it just bother me that it's not equal to or heavier than the Juliet. Thanks!

    Seems odd to me that the color of the frame would dictate a weight difference. Are you judging the weight by the way it feels or are you putting it on a scale?

    Just my first impression. The Xsquared just feels lighter. I will try to weigh them later when I get home. Thanks for the link! Been looking for it all over the net.
