    Hi everyone,

    I have two Badman questions that i can't seem to find a clear cut question on the site:
    • how hard is to replace the lenses on the badman? I've seen some people post that they either scratch the frame or broke the orbitals.
    • Have you guys noticed any difference with the hinge tightness? i tried on a display model and it was really loose, i'm just worried that it will loose tension over time.
    let me know - thanks

    Never attempted lens replacement on badman so I cannot help you with that. But I have it for more than 6 months without any hinge loose issue. Also have the madman with no issues too.

    1. Lens replacement is simple. Just pop the orbital screws out and ever-so-slightly pry the orbitals apart in order to take the lenses out. Be careful though. You can't pry on them like you can an X-Metal frame, otherwise the orbitals will break. I did manage to break an orbital on one pair.

    Do we know if big taco lenses are good donor's? I know it might seem redundant with there being replacements lenses available, but i would still like to know...
