    Hi Fellas,

    I have all the Penny frames, minus the copper ones. I actually have two in titanium. I would like to send one frame to the X-Man to have them cerekoted in BLACK. Having trouble deciding on what frame to send him. I am not going to send him my super low serial X-Metal frame, what would be the best frame to send? Is there a frame that more were made of...this way I can replace it later on down the line? Thanks!!

    Use a polished frame. Just polish it back when you change you mind. ;)

    I would send whichever pair needs refinishing. If they are in good shape dont do it. Look for a beater project pair. X-Man has done about 7 pairs for me, amazing work but they all needed it.

    Well...I actually want to keep the polished frame because I had chrome polarized iridium lenses put in them and they look GREAT. I really like the titanium ones as well....so am thinking titanium. The prices for Penny frames have doubled as of recent. A few months back, I was finding them for just over $200....not anymore.

    That's a good idea, they can all use a little work....well, aside from the X-Metal. I baby those. Going to try and find a pair that isn't in the best of condition...a project pair like you said...and keep what I have. Shame they never made a carbon frame like the Julies. But the cerekote will look awesome...I saw pics, and WOW!!!

    I think there was a carbon colorway unofficially released at one point.

    Really? Never saw or heard of it. Besides...that will cost an arm and a leg even if I could find one. Hoping to find a beat up pair that can be brought back to life by the man....have plenty of lenses.

    Cerekote black Penny will look sweet. Can't wait to see it.

    I saw two pairs on the X-Mans website....one with blue and one with red rubbers in colr to match. A beautiful! And a Minute Machine watch....mine is polished. ;-)
