    Hi all,

    Just a normal interest question.

    How long will these philosophical frame last? How will you use it in one year? What kind of lenses and rubbers you can think of?

    By Oak history:
    Romeo 1.0 (1997) by now it is 18 years old
    Mars (1998), 17 years old
    Juliet & XX, (1999), 16 years old
    Penny (2001), 14 years old
    Romeo 2.0 (2004), 10 years old
    X-Squared (2009), 6 years old, the youngest

    You know, Linegear commits to stay with all of you and the generation to come ;)

    Beyond our lifetimes if properly cared for... 100 years or more?

    I am not sure what you are asking but I generally like to use them by wearing them, some daily/weekly, others once very month or two.

    I am an OEM guy so I am not a lot of help to you here. One colorway in demand for those who use aftermarket items are the Infinite Hero purple rubbers. This is a different shade of purple than the current Linegear offering. I think that would sell. Also Half-X earsocks would probably be a reasonable future item for your consideration.

    Thank you for supporting our community.

    :)

    They will last for a lifetine.

    I use all my frames alternately.

    We want romeo 2 and half x rubbers. Preferably black and red to begin with.

    A darker shade of the blue rubbers and the option to choose your own color for the complete set of rubbers, for example a complete set of juliet rubbers with red earstems, blue t shox, yellow nosepads and white orbital gasket. Just a thought. :cool-20:

    My collection began as hoarding after I lost my first pair so I would have enough stock to last my lifetime, if I lost or destroyed more in the future. But then I kept going...

    Ive got a project going on tanzinite (violet if using OEM) lenses and green rubber set but I cant make up my mind on painting the frame black or leaving it grey. Most likely using a XS.
