    Sadness.

    Don't sit on your carbon blades. They may seem all flexy and durable, but they aren't and the screws WILL tear out of the frame :-(

    Sorry for your loss. That is the number one issue with that pair. From what I understand those are not screws, the only look like them, the really pins. Maybe you can confirm?

    I'm sorry for your loss.

    This is why Oakley sunglasses belong on your face, not on your ass. ;)

    I feel your pain. I have a pair that look quite similar. Bit of a "redneck" fix, but I used a drop of superglue to mount the screw back into the lens. It worked!
