I had a pair of unlucky XM XX's. The nose bridge had gotten a scratch right in the middle and I sent them to Oakley for a tune-up. (These were my second pair of Oakleys) When I got them back from Oakley they weren't the same. The front of the frame was virtually flat and not even 50 t-shox or bending the flex coupler got the ear stems any closer together. I had offered them to another forum member who declined so I was going to bring them to RED and have them re-tuned at HQ while in the area. The XMAN agreed however to sort them out for me and they are spectacular now, He said that the orbital tabs were tweaked and the rubber for the flex coupler was in backward, While he had them he re-finished them to get rid of the scratch and keep it uniform. I think that he refers to this as his light finish. Also purchased previously were a set of OCP/Ichiro rubbers and a unique pair of Blue IR chops from Dr. Chop. I can't wait to take them for a spin tomorrow... Family Pics for reference: In retrospect I probably should have put these next to the other XX XM frame, These are lighter but not as much as the flash makes them look in the solo shots above. They are a tad lighter and I bet that over time they will darken up a little. For now I like the cleaner finish!
