    What's the best lens (curve and size) for a custom Romeo lens?
    I already made one out of a Ten X lens and it's not bad, just the curve is not exactly the same.
    Any ideas?

    Result:
    - Dispatch
    - Fast Jacket
    - Jawbone
    - Ten X

    Split Jacket lenses are the best choice for Romeo custom cuts

    Jawbone will work too and had more options. Including violet

    Violet is available through the IH Split and can be cut to preserve the IH etching

    But getting the infinite hero lens is harder

    True. Just a matter if someone wants to pay premium for that look.

    Thanks so far.
    The Split Jacket lens is to small. OEM height of a Romeo lens is 37,8mm. Split Jacket lenses are 37,7mm. :mad:
    Doesn't matter how I rotate the Romeo lens, it doesn't fit on the Split Jacket lens.
    The curve would be perfect.
    What's the size of a Jawbone lens? Any other larger lenses you can recommend?

    I've forgotten to say that I want to make my own etching :smile:

    Here's a pic from the web. That's not a Split Jacket lens, looks like a Fuel Cell IH, because the cross is darker.
    I thought the FC lens is to small!!??

    Split jacket lenses DO work. It's been done several times.

    I just held up my jawbone lenses to my x metals. Height has room to work with, may have to shave them down a smidge. Plenty of length to work with as well. 63 millimeters W by 40 millimeters H. Polarized verstion: Amazon.com: Oakley Jawbone Replacement Lenses: Clothing

    If you get the polarized your etching wont fit unless you put it on the opposite side.

    I know, but caliper says no.

    Thanks for measuring. 63x40mm is perfect.
    What do you think. Can a Romeo lens chopped out of them without the POLARIZED etching?
