    Greetings from Cincinnati! Just joined the forum after catching the "oakley bug." It had been dormant since about 2006, but has come back with a vengeance...

    Purchase history:

    1996:M-Frame (black w/ red iridium * white nose & earsocks)
    1998: Zero .4s (black iridium)
    2000: X-Metal XX (x-metal frame w/ black iridium) (lost)
    2003: Mag Switch (titanium frame w/ Ice Iridium)
    2005: after 2 years, I found the XX's under my in-laws guest bed
    2006: Hatchet (Mercury frame w/ Black iridium) first Rx lenses (perfect vision until age 23)
    2012 (current): Juliets (x-metal with black iridium). 2nd pair of Rx.

    Pairs i most regret selling: XX & Mag Switch

    Now i just need to find some extra cash to go back and re-buy everything I've sold. :)

    Your wallet will suffer here.

    True story. I've never been a "collector:" only ever had one pair at a time. BTW, after lunch, i realized i left a couple pairs off the list:

    1996:M-Frame (black w/ red iridium * white nose & earsocks)
    1998: Zero .4s (black iridium)
    1999: Square wire (silver with black iridium)
    2000: X-Metal XX (x-metal frame w/ black iridium) (lost)
    2003: Mag Switch (titanium frame w/ Ice Iridium)
    2005: after 2 years, I found the XX's under my in-laws guest bed
    2006: Hatchet (Mercury frame w/ Black iridium) first Rx lenses (perfect vision until age 23)
    2011: X-Metal Half X (carbon with black iridium)
    2012: X-Metal X-square (pinched my head, so I sold them after a week. $50 profit!)
    2012 (current): Juliets (x-metal with black iridium). 2nd pair of Rx.

    and the Juliets just arrive about 30 minutes ago. Alas, I only get to wear them for today, because they go off for Rx lenses tomorrow... :(

    Yeah...Oakley should really publish some sort of pamphlet for wives. Ideas for titles?

    Thanks! It's dangerous living 15 minutes from an O store and 30 minute from a Vault... :)
