    While searching on eBay I noticed a lot of frames between 80-120 dollars. Is it standard practice for people to split up frames and lenses for sales? Or should I be concerned they are fake?

    I've seen it done for the Radarlock also. In practice it's a logical attempt to make more money. Part-outs will yield more gains assuming you sell everything. Almost thought of getting the Cavendish or GP75 frames.

    I know with Radars, there's a higher risk of them being fake just for being the simpler and older frame design. You really just need a careful eye on each auction you're interested in.

    Look okay to me. Ghost Text isn't something I've seen faked (someone can correct me on this, but I've never seen it)

    I don't know Radars too well. Seems with reputation and buyer protection it's legit. It's a tough one to bother imitating.

    I appreciate the feedback guys. I really liked them and for the price I figured I'd give it a shot. I'll be switching my black iridium polarized lenses in them. But I'm also thinking about possibly getting some blue iridium lenses and blue socks! Been on here for a day and its already a "bad" influence ;)
