    I have a spare set of OO BIP XS lenses that I just got from Oakley Warranty and I've been wanting to put them in a pair of Polished XS that I haven't been able to find yet.

    But I was looking at my X-Metals case today and I was wondering if I should get a Plasma frame to mash up with my X-Metal frame for a TiO2 frame and put the OO BIP in those instead.

    I already have a reverse TiO2 frame (I call it the Hybrid frame) that has Ice Iridium in it. By doing a TiO2 frame it would mean that I'd end up with another Hybrid frame but it would be with the Ruby and red rubber set that I have on my X-Metal frame currently.

    So should I just go for a Polished frame and put my OO BIP in those or get a Plasma frame and do the TiO2 and end up with two Hybrid frames?

    I forgot to mention, I already have a TiO2 XX.

    Can I throw in another suggestion? What about Polished Carbon with the OO BI?

    It's kinda funny that you mention the Polished Carbon because the OO BIP I bought was initially meant for my Polished Carbon. Before I got the OO BIP in, I put in some spare Fire Iridium Polarized and just fell in love with the look so I think I'm gonna stay with that. Plus BriP mentioned that putting the OO BIP on the Polished Carbon would make it a very understated frame as opposed to the Fire Iridium Polarized which looks outstanding on the dark frame.

    Yup, Plasma flex coupler and ear stems, X-Metal orbitals. Or reverse TiO2.

    Can xman tumble one to a polished/plasma look? That'd solve your problem

    Not sure how far he's gotten in his research with non-X-Metal finishes. But taking a Plasma and polishing it may be the route I have to go if I can't locate a Polished frame.
