Hi guys, which model you guyz like most and what is the main different?
The main different would be finish and discoloration, I think. 1st gen has boney/matte finish to it. 2nd and 3rd are more polishing silver.
1st gen get dirty very easy.
Hope the pictures help.
From front to back: 1st, 2nd, 3rd.
Wow..... So which gen do you prefer?
I like 1st gen but talking care of them kinda pain me. I tried to wash the dark discoloration on the stem with soapy water but it's still there.
@jaopae what's the color on your second gens. They have a bit of a bronze tint. Looks good
Also are those yellow gaskets and ear stems from line gear?
Do you mean lens or frame color?
Yellow gaskets are from DG_Mods.
Ear socks and temple shocks are Walleva.
I also have yellow kit from linegear. If you'd like to see the difference, let me know.
I did't do anything to the frame. That's the discoloration you see there. Pretty unique, I guess.
Interesting...looks pretty good...I thought you did a custom job. Anyway they look good...I have 1st gen coming to and you have given me some ideas..cheers.
is there anything one could do to repair the discoloration?
