    Looking to buy a pair of wire frames, and I need you guys' help! I've pretty much narrowed it down to the Splinter or C-wire. Since the local stores don't have either one, I need some fit info and pics from people who have either frame. By the latest Oakley standards, I have a "small" head, I wear Bottlecaps, Twentys (old version) and Flak's. Would either of the pairs I'm looking fit me? Thanks everyone!

    They are too big for your head.

    I feel C-wire has a slightly smaller fit since the lens size is not as wide as the Splinter. I like the hinge better on the C-wire as well since it is not a true Spring Hinge. It has the mono shock titanium bar that gives the frame some give.

    Square Wire is a more medium fit, and you can get some crazy deals on them right now. Might want to give those a look if you haven't already.

    But with square wire beware they were discontinued for a hinge issue. Which is why you are seeing those crazy deals.

    Not aware of that, thanks for the heads up!
