    Just wondering what the differences are between the Jupiter Factory lite and the Jupiter Carbon. Do they fit the same? Was it basically just a name change? or are the Carbon real carbon fibre in the arms?

    JFL's have an aluminium 'front' while the JC's have an O matter 'front' ...

    It's been said the JFL's fit a bit tighter

    I believe boh have the same real carbon fiber arms

    I haven't looked it up, but they might not have identical colour ways either

    Ya i had a pair of those and sold them, i actually just purchased another pair, but i am really interested in the carbons, though. I like the black with white and blue.

    I'm a big fan of the JFLs... Aluminum, Carbon Fiber and Titanium all in one sunglass? So cool.

    Somehow they want to charge more for JCs... Despite the fact that they substituted the precision CNC'ed part with o matter? Pass!

    The Jupiter Carbons fit exactly like a regular Jupiter Squared from what others have said. I have a JFL as well as a Jup. Squared and the JFL is just ever so slightly more snug. I am with @Supero100 on this though, the JFL's are awesome and how can Oakley justify charging a higher price point for a piece that's O-matter instead of machined Aluminum. They have the same carbon fiber ear stems and the same titanium hinges. If they were perhaps $50-$75 cheaper I would get one. Since they are not I will stay with the JFL's
