    Ok so its almost time for me to send my XX, which now has straight arms from the JulieX project, to Oakley for a tuneup. But Im unsure - i feel like I want the XX back with its hammers..just looks more complete that way. But that means i lose JulieX. Which i dont want.

    What shall I do? anyone got spare X-metal hammerstems? haha..

    I'm with you, Yoshi, what exactly is your question? You don't want to take the hammerstems off your Juliet while the XX gets tuned up? I would send the XX in with the straight stems, maybe they will think there was a mistake and send you a pair back with hammerstems, then you'll have both!

    Back in 2005 I bought a pair of TiO2 XX for the specific purpose of getting a pair of hammer stems to swap onto my X-Metal Juliet.

    I did, it was fun, sold the straight arm XX to my friend. Wore Juliets with hammers.

    A year or so later my friend swapped the XX for my Black Iridium Dartboards and eventually I swapped the hammers back onto the XX and think it is the right way to go.

    As my collecting downsizes and plateaus I've become big on keeping Oakleys stock.

    I feel the XX suits the hammer stems a lot more than straight, plus the serials match.

    As long as you keep both pairs, the option is always there.

    Here's what I would do! Keep your JulieX! Sell the straight armed XX! Buy a new XX

    You should still stand to make a decent enough amount on the straight armed XX that it won't cost you too much to get the new one!
