    I'm looking to gain more knowledge on Oakley products in general, but in particular I have a soft spot for Juliet's.

    The pair I last had were Carbon / Black Iridium.

    I want to know more about these: when the X-Metal line began, special and limited editions of Juliet's. So far I've heard about Ti02's, Infinite Hero, Ichiro, X-Men edition, and I'm sure there are many others. I'd love for somebody to impart some of their wisdom on me so I can decide on my next pair of Juliet's.

    Look on o-review. The Juliet page will have every model and release dates.

    Hey Batwolf,

    I was looking at that second link you posted and saw that the X-Metal was a mix of 5 materials, mostly Titanium. I knew it was a mix of several materials and know it was mostly Titanium, but I remember hearing somewhere that it was a mix of 25 different materials. I'm gonna go with the source itself and trust that it's 5 different materials. But I want to know, other than Titanium, what else is in the mix?

    I also did some reading on the first link posted, and it says the X-Metal is a blend of 25 metals. Maybe the Juliet's have a different blend? I'm not sure. What's with the discrepancy?

    I believe it's a mix of 5 metals, mostly titanium but I don't think Dann is ever wrong. Could just be a typo though.

    Trust me, O-Review is the best source of info around. Do some studying.

    25 metals is INCORRECT. it is a misinterpretation of the Description on oakley.com about the juliets. juliets consists of 25 PARTS. the actual alloy is a secret and not disclosed to the public.
