    Hey guys I'm looking to get my feet wet and buy and x-metal frame but I'm debating on what design would be the best for me. I've never seen any in person and know of nowhere that I could try these on or anyone who has them to let me try on. All I currently have is O-matter frames I know it's comparing apples to oranges but could anyone tell me what frame has lenses that would compare well with fuel cell lenses and tightness of the head the fuel cell is probably one of the best fitting frames I know for me maybe the style switch as well any info would help just don't want to blindly spend hundreds and not know what I'm getting into. Thanks for all the info fellas.

    If you buy a pair and they don't work out for you, you can always sell them again in the exchange section.

    I wear the fuel cell the most out of all my pairs. I would say the XS fits well. R2 fits me best and I have not tried a R1. Juliet fits to a degree. It feels a bit small and tight, also does not feel that it covers enough of my eyes.

    The Xsquared is great. A bit in the middle size-wise.
    The XX is for big heads.
    The juliet has small lenses and even though it may fit your head, maybe you dont have enough coverage.

    Thanks for all the great responses guys I think I'll try to get myself an xx or xs. This will most likely be a purchase after my vaca as I'm saving for all the vaults I'll be hitting on my way to Florida and in Florida.

    How does the width of Juliet and X-Squared or XX compare? I guess I'm looking specifically for the width of the earstems. I've had a Juliet before, and while it wasn't too bad on my big head once I got it on, the rigidity of the X-Metal made getting them on difficult. They kind of dug into my head while sliding them on, and I was afraid I'd break them if I kept doing it over and over.

    The Xsquared is tighter, but will loosen a bit as time goes by. If it gets too loose, you maybe able to tighten the nose screws.
    The XX has longer ear stems, maybe a better fit and if the bit over the nose fails, you 'll have to do some work to fix it, or send it to X-Man.
