    I took a shot on a pair that could have gone either way. Bad description (ok pics), but if they were in good shape it was a pretty good price. If they were in bad shape $200 shipped wouldn't have been the worst for a 4th gen plasma project. Well they arrived and I'd give them a 9-9.5. Tight, perfect frame other than the slightest discoloration around the nose pins (most cleaned off) and like new rubber. I can't see anything on the lenses. They were just a little dirty...

    Maybe, there are a couple other (more expensive...:mad:) finishes to consider as well!

    Polished carbon is the only other one I can think of officially.

    Nice pick up, glad you got them at a good price! You also have Juliet Titanium and Ti02. ;) Then you can start on Romeo's, Romeo 2's, XX's, and finally Mars and crater, and then.....

    Whoa, one at a time...;)
    I have no models in the polished carbon or TiO2, so something in that direction... I always forget about Titanium!:headbang:

    Plasma/ice 4th gen was what got me started, and @kronin323 began with the same but in polar. It's a nice combo.

    There are a whole bunch of officially released finishes for Juliets:

    Plasma
    Polished
    Carbon
    X-metal
    Titanium
    TiO2
    Brown
    24K
    Polished carbon

    Before someone chimes in with "Purple", that's why I chose my words carefully with "...officially released" :)

    But with what you have now, I agree with @ptownphil , I would try an x-metal next.

    Yep - OEM x-metal should be next, if you're looking not to repeat.

    The thought had crossed my mind to try for all of the Juliet's, but that is a slippery slope because of the variety and rarity of some (which I'm sure @Carrera1963 can attest to)! I had been looking to acquire one example of each frame. After that was done, I wasn't quite sure which direction to go (any new goal for you @kronin323?). I do like variety, these three Juliet's are now tied for the most of any frame in my collection. Now, it seems the goal will be just something different… Being that these took two weeks to get here, I may already have another on the way:rolleyes:!
