    How do you switch lenses in and out? Do you have to replace those little c rings every time you take them off to replace the lenses? Does taking the c rings on and off scratch the frame?

    Also, how does the Mars fit? Are they meant for smaller faces/heads? More importantly, is it one of those frames that only certain people can pull off in public?

    u need a narrow head for the mars to fit and look good.. :)
    great thing act them... it'll definitely turn heads when you're wearing them

    good to have spare c rings around if u plan to take them off... they aren't that prone to breaking, but they are, on occasion, prone to fly off into oblivion when u pry them off.

    So they fit tighter than, say, a Juliet?

    the fit (as in tightness) is more or less the same... its the design that makes it look narrower on the face compared to a Juliet.

    Juliet orbitals covers the sides of your eyes, however, Mars does not have that much coverage due to its narrow orbital design.

    i'll try to take a pic to show the difference later...

    for me the mars fits tighter. c clips are reuseable but can break, also it does scratch the frame putting on and off but usually comes from the factory already with scratches there, its not obvious. get the crater or leather wrap, so much better than a regular frame :)

    @ Razerwire

    some pics for u to compare...

    1. Mars vs Juliet sizing

    Those With Mars - img0243ir.jpg


    2. Mars vs X Squared sizing

    Those With Mars - img0245hi.jpg


    3. Mars and Juliet orbital comparison - the Mars is narrower at the front in terms of orbitals, means light can get in from the sides. Fit wise, they are the same at the ear stems.

    Yes but remember, the Mars' Flex couplers dont move as much as the Juliet's do, so it is a tighter fit...

    Juliets fit snug for me. I can't even put the Mars on unless it's super loose.
