    I have some Juliets that have the sapphire lenses in them now that are in need of a lens replacement. Oakley actually has the fire iridium polarized lenses in stock for 99 dollars. My question is what do you guys think about that lens color? I'm thinking of pulling the trigger on it.

    Oakley never had sapphire available as a replacement lens ... ice or blue maybe? (unless you got them custom)

    Fire is a fantastic sport lens ... but everyone has opinions and likes/dislikes.

    Find a pair (any) with fire in store and give em a try before buying ...

    Yes you're right, they are the ice. I like them - a lot, but I like having a non scratched up pair of lenses eve more. :).

    I also like that these are Oakley oem lenses (I was surprised they still had them.)

    Fire Iridium (in my opinion) is "biker-gang" (or Ghost Rider of Marvel Comics fame) look.

    They're quite noticeable from a distance, which is a bonus, if you jog, bike, or walk in them.

    Heck, for 99 dollars, you can't go wrong. You can always swap 'em out, right?

    Oakley lenses offer superior optics... Not durability!

    The iridium is extremely scratch prone! It says so on that little paper that used to come with ALL new pairs at one point...

    Oakley releases Juliet lenses every so often, so buy up as many as you can afford (and want... (Don't be a scalper) because eventually only custom cuts will be left

    ... Not that there's anything wrong with that!

    That bit of paper should be brought back I reckon.

    He's right. Don't even use the micro-fiber cloth to clean Juliet lenses.

    Warm water and the softest type of Kleenex you can find, if you value them :cool-20:

    Really? The cleaning bag will scratch the glasses? That seems hard to believe.

    The cleaning bag, (after a certain amount of uses), collects the dirt, pollen, "dust-bunnies", etc.

    Using a fresh Kleenex each time ensures no-scratching to your impeccable lenses ;)


    (Just be sure to use Kleenex brand, not some cheap knock-off brand.)
