    I got a buddy into collecting and he's buying a pair for himself from a friend of his. He really likes the x-metal/ruby combo but the cell phone pic the seller sent him isn't good enough to confirm. I was thinking it's x-metal but other guy says it's plasma like he's sure. What do y'all think?

    X Metal tends to be darker. I think that's just a dull looking plasma\ice frame.

    The left orbital looks kinda shiny like plasma but the nosebridge appears matte which leads me to believe x-metal. Also, he said the lenses are black iridium so he kinda sounds like he knows what he's talking about.

    Yeah if its serialed that will take the guess work out. Otherwise IF its stock and the lenses are black, it would likely be and X Metal frame not Plasma. X Metal is notoriously difficult to photograph because it looks so different in different lighting.
