    Hey guys, I've never seen a plasma R1 so hereit goes:

    How can I distinguish between the plasma and titanium R1? (other than the different lenses of course) Not sure if there is a way to tell by the serial number.

    The plasma is more silver, while the titanium is more of a light tannish color!

    There 2 versions of R1 Titanium, First Gen Titanium is a light brown MATTE color, and the serial end with number, 2nd gen Titanium have a silver finish and end with "A" letter
    The Plasma has only one version, is very very close to 2nd gen titanium, but have a very light bronze finish

    Also if you have the stock rubber on there still... Titanium has rootbeer rubber and plasma has black rubber.

    That last part is false. Plasma has 2 gens as well... Gen1 is matte white "bone" color. Gen 2 plasma is more like gen2 titanium and thats where the most confusion happens.

    I see. Nothing like a 1st gen plasma. I assume it's like the plasma in the 1st gen Juliets?

    Yup. Although if you've seen gen1 titanium juliets or romeos, you'd be chasing that instead ;)
