    Does anyone have both and would be kind enough to take pics of them side to side? Or at least describe a difference if there's any?

    I'm looking at them on google pics and they seem to be so similar it's hard even to try to guess which is which.

    I should be able to do this next week if nobody else gets back to you.

    The plasma is more of a brown/gold and more of a matte finish. Generally lends itself to gold iridium/black/bronze lenses. Ice/+Red/G25/etc don't tend to look great.

    The white/chrome is just as it sounds. It's no even close to plasma. There are also polished and pearl white to consider.

    There's also Vegas Gold that's a little like Plasma just WAY better (biased as it's my favourite and I'm currently losing my mind because I still can't get Jawbone in VG).

    White Chrome Vs Plasma On Radars - photo63pk.jpg


    I don't have plasma but here is white chrome. I've seen the plasma in person and oakster is right there is quite a difference

    There is only like 5 frames that were released in White Chrome as I was recently told. I'm trying to collect them all. White chrome is awesome

    oooh, I see now! I was looking at the ebay listings and I think I was mistaken by item number 160745087138. It's white chrome not plasma, bad description. Difference is indeed big. I really like white chrome, it's not as plain as polished white, but not as offensive as chrome. So pics are not needed any longer :redface: Thanks for help!

    haha, yeah chrome is very cool! But you get big attention while you wear such oakleys. Sometimes something less exciting is nice too :smile:

    White Chrome is pretty, but you will knock the finish off of the nosepiece changing lenses and it will look like donkey.
