    They both look GREAT!! Tho the Sax seems to match the rubber more (from the pic/angle anyway) I'd personally go the Sax.

    +1 on the Sax also, it does seem to match the rubbers more. But if you want to match/clone the Ichiro's, the navy is probably closer in color. Aaahhh, they both look good :rolleyes:, LOL!

    I am not sure if the rubber in the pic is linegear rubbers or oakley. I will have a set of the Oakley Ichiro rubbers.

    Navy. If you have Oakley rubber its darker than any other aftermarket...the rubber in the Linegear pics is theirs which is lighter. The Navy will be closer to Ice and the original OO Blue which matched perfectly with the Oakley rubber

    I'm not familiar with OEM rubbers vs. aftermarket either, but looking at those closely it doesn't seem to be genuine Oakley. I'm just thinking that they are a few rough edges where the rubber hasn't been trimmed down flush, and I would think that Oakley has higher quality standards than that. Again, I don't know squat about unobtanium pieces, so I could very well be talkin' out of my A$$, LOL.

    That's OEM. The printing is genuine Oakley. The lighting is making it appear lighter

    See this thread for pics of my Ichiro X Squared custom with Ice and OEM blue rubber for an example in different lighting

    I remember your build thread, the lighting does make it look a LOT lighter here. So how different is the printing on the aftermarket rubbers?

    The letters are in italics...most aftermarket has their own markings (not Made in the USA) and those that do have Made in the USA its not in italics.
