    Just curious if there are tricks as to verify the authenticity of Splice. Included are some pictures from CL, these look like the BackCountry exclusives, best I can tell. Any input?

    Should there be a sku printed on it somewhere?

    You need to track down Walkerhonda, he's the resident expert. They do look a little fishy to me though.

    That frame looks way too clear, but it could be the lighting. The Splice doesn't have any markings on the frame...about the closest thing I could think of would be the rubbers on the ear stems....one should have MADE IN THE USA ce and the other one should have SPLICE and the "O" icon, but some just have the "O". I could take some pics of mine if it helps.

    It should say Splice on one of the rubbers on the arm & made in the USA on the other. On these though the bottom of the orbits & stems look clear & the top of the orbits look a matt grey. I am not aware of any splice that had this. Speak to dr. chop, oakleynerd, SpliceD & walkerhonda as they are clued up on splice. But initial looks say fake to me. You need better pictures to be sure & ask for pictures of the screws that hold the two halves together as they should be torx screws.

    The early Splice had no writing on the frames but the later ones did say OAKLEY across the bridge.

    The guy said the inside has "Made in the USA" and "CE" but didn't mention any O or other markings.

    In searching, there are a lot of Splice pictures that look like this exact same frame, but it isn't listed on the O-Review, or at least none of the pictures match up. Maybe the fakers just decided to make a new colorway.
