    I want a metal, and the OG Romeo is out of my league at the moment. XX didn't work out, left too big of a gap at the bottom outside and the T15 shocks felt a tad small for width.

    The next object of my desire is a Romeo 2, since I've been fond of most half frames in the past. How do they fit, any quirks or things to be aware of?

    fit bigger than Juliet. Mostly hated because of their name and association of the original. Really not a bad pair.

    I don't think the style is quite on par with the rest of the metal lineup except maybe the Half X, but they're growing on me. And if they don't work out I'm only left with the X Sqaured, and no one wants that.

    They're very light. Doesn't clamp my head like a vice like the other X-Metals can do. They're actually very comfortable.

    The half x is so tiny

    At least the Romeo 2.0 has the flex coupler to tie it to the rest of the X-Metal line sans Romeo 1.0. Other than the materials used, the Half X doesn't really have anything to tie it in with the X-Metals line.

    For everyone here, half jacket lenses can fit a Romeo 2, so you do have lens options/availability going for it too

    Really? No cutting required?

    Huh. Wonder what that looks like. Although I have to say I do love the Romeo 2.0's lens shape. They're very unique.

    Hmmm. My wife has a Half Jacket. Perhaps I should try switching the lenses.
