    I just got a used pair of frogskins off ebay and I'm new to frogskins but I'm pretty sure they're fake. The seller told me they were an older model they bought about 10 yrs ago but some things just don't add up. They have screws holding the hinges on but say Made in USA. From my understanding the only frogskins that ever had screws were made in japan. Like I said I'm pretty sure they're fake but I just wanted to be sure before I return them (fortunately the seller accepts returns). Attached are a few pics.

    The 1st Gen Frogs have Japan written on the inside of the right arm(earstems) at the top, on the curved part. Also they should have flat icons not raised: the Oakley script was painted on, not embossed on the earstems. So, yep, they're fake
    as a nine bob note!

    Yep, not to mention the color is a dead giveaway.
