    Forgive me if this is a stupid question, but besides the X-Metal family (Juliet, X-Squared, XX, Penny, Romeo, Romeo 2.0, Mars, Half X), are there any other frames that are made in the X-metal material/colour that AREN'T in the X-Metal "family"?

    I'm asking because I note that while the Madman and Badman are in the X-metal family, they actually don't come in the X-metal frame. Just ("X Raw" in the Madman, and "X-Ti" in the Badman).

    Do any of the other "Family" groups e.g. Wire etc come with X-metal frames even if they're not classified as X-metals?

    Yes, there's at least a prescription frame or two made of x-metal.

    I don't own any, but the frame material is just specified as a colour - gunmetal.

    I think those are more of a pure ti, while X is a blend.

    O-Luminum not Titanium........the Ti was for the lenses only, so more colour than material.

    For the aluminum hatchets. Titanium hatchets are titanium
