    Looking at @saulsaul 's Ti Juliet for sale, I am reminded that there are three different shades of Juliet in textured finishes available at and around launch.

    X-metal, the darkest, but a great fit with ruby.

    Titanium, the midpoint, which goes well with brown based lenses.

    Plasma, the palest, and very different from what plasma became later on (whisper it, but I prefer later plasma).

    Might have to arrange the case so they are together, I love the way they look as a group.

    So which is your favourite of the triplets?!

    Thanks for posting the picture, I'd been wondering how titanium frame fits in with the other frame colors.

    How about a picture with different plasmas through out all the generations?

    The Romeo Ti looks a bit paler and shinier than the Juliet's. I've not had any problems with it on Juliets, is it delicate on the Romeo? Maybe they'd nailed it by the time the Juliet came around.

    The bottom 2 look the same color frames.

    Anyway, what do you mean by "as durable as xmetal" ?
