    Im purchasing some x-metel frames from @saulsaul and have a choice from 24k lens and ruby. I really like 24k in polished frames but, how would they look in x-metel.

    I know "whatever I like etc" but, I'd like some opinions from some of the excellent members here.

    24K looks incredible in a carbon frame but I'm not sure about XM, Ruby would def. work.

    I'd go with Ruby. I'm sure 24k would look good too, but Ruby/XM is a classic combo that looks awesome! :cool-33:

    I'd go 24K. I think Ruby is too common. And, if you ever want me to polish those R1 out for you let me know :dance:

    I think 24k would get lost, with the chrome: go woth RUBY.

    Thanks for all the replies. Pretty sure I'm right where I was. I guess I should ask @Chris A Hardaway just how RUBY they are.

    I currently have none of either lens somehow but, I've had both and I love the way the view in 24k is. But looks alone I'm leaning Ruby---I think :headbang:

    If you are not a pilot, anything polarized! You are starting from scratch, dont limit yourself on those two choices. There are plenty of other options.
