    Picked this old lady during Xmas. Cost me something like 50 $. As far as I can see it is a Zero 0.6 Carbon Fiber with Persimmon. But the picture on o-review's database shows it with an O-icon instead of the stretch logo on this one so I am not to sure. But I don't think the original Sub Zero came with persimmon though.

    Can anybody give me more info?

    They are in great condition for it's age (7/10)

    I hope so as it was one opf my first Oakleys back in the days.

    But as far as i know the 0.6 is actually more or less modelled from the original Sub Zero.

    it is a 0.6.

    earstems have fangs =not subzero. also notice lens shape- they are wider than subzero, and outside edge is rounded the whole way. subzero has a flat section.

    the stretch text was available in the first gen Zeros... it changed to the O later on.

    Thanks BriP. That was what I expected. Still a nice pair. Hope to find some of the original Sub Zero as that was one if the first models I owned +20 years ago (along with the Razor Blades).

    Cool. For me they very much represent what oakley used to be all about. The mad design and functionality.

    I just recently, as in the past week, became obsessed with sub zeros and zeros..I think its for the same reasons you guys said. They represent what Oakley used to be, and maybe occasionally still is. The radical design and functionality. The full coverage is awesome on those. I literally just got 2 pair off of hearno...I'm so pumped to get them in hand. Haven't had a pair of those on in many many years. One of them I got is a bit rough and will make a nice daily idgaf pair. Grats on the pickup, the persimmon lense looks very cool!
