Hey guys, I have both the x metal/black iridium and titanium/gold Romeo 1. In pictures, the titanium frame looks really smooth. Since I own titanium pennys now, I can tell a huge difference between titanium and x metal. My titanium/gold R1 though looks like it is an x metal frame. There is no real way to tell because the serial numbers are all the same for R1s. I am thinking it is a custom R1, since it has custom cut OEM polarized gold lenses. It also has a rootbeer R1 kit which originally came on the titanium frame. Can anyone clarify the if the finish on the original titanium/gold is very smooth, and not industrial like the X Metal? For anyone who has titanium R1s, can you post a pic? Thanks!
