    Hey Guys,
    Just for entertainment... I'm curious to see what was your first pair of X-Metals were, when you got them, and if you still have them post a pic to see how great you take care of them. OR if youve got some X-Metals that are completely FUBAR... post it! LETS SEE!

    I very rarely wear them now. Must of been from when I was a little less caring and didn't clean after each use....

    First pair was a XX TiO2. They didn't fit me well, so I sold them. I've owned a Juliet, Romeo 2, and had an X Squared, Mars, and Half X on my face to try out.

    The Romeo is the first pair I've had that really sold me. All the rest kind of perched on my face and felt unstable. I tried on a pair from another member and knew I'd have one. Got the same pair from the same member a few weeks later in trade.

    I consider the Romeo to be the first X Metal to be fully adopted into my collection.

    Romeo I back in 2001, got them for $50 from a friend. Wore them for 8 years before I knew what they were, now they sit on a shelf worn maybe 1-2x year.
