    Yeah, me too. Just wondered if there was an outside chance this could be dark looking plasma (late gen). There's nothing on the stems - no SKU, no serial...

    Too rough a finish for plasma?

    Yeh a bit rough but too dark IMO the later gen Plasma is smooth and kinda shiny

    Here's a couple of pics of my 4th gen Plasma for comparison

    What Juliet frame finish is this? - DSC5513_copy.jpg

    Yeah - it's clearly an X-Metal! Thanks for responding guys. It was sold to me as XMetal so can't complain but annoyingly the box it came in is labeled Ice/Plasma and the photo in the ad didn't show the label on the box. I feel slightly tricked. I bet this happens a lot!

    Anyone wanna buy a Plasma Ice box? Or sell me a plasma / ice without box :)

    Good attitude. Philosophical. But in an auction, don't you bid higher if you think it's matching? I know I do! Feel slightly annoyed but hopefully it's made me wiser.

    First world problems, eh?!

    Yeh I did message the guy and let him know I was disappointed that he didn't mention the box didn't match in the listing as I probably wouldn't have paid quite as much as I did but at the end of the day I was after the frame/lenses and not much I can do.

    first world problem indeed :lolsign:
