Thanks for the Tag! I just ordered myself 2- 24K Polar and 2- Violet Irid Polars yesterday!!! Grrr... missed this post. If anyone wants to purchase a set from @jdd32 and send them my way for a cut that's cool. Good job JDD32, and good looking out @stevepc74

Good luck with the sale!!! Great lenses, perfect for almost every frame that's 8.75 base. Even non X-Metals like Splice, Eye Jackets, etc.

Just to make it clear, the big taco lenses are converted from retail AUD pricing - i'm NOT scalping.

Just curious, what is the difference if a Turbine donor is used? Is there a difference? Pardon my newbie ignorance! Thanks!!

The difference is the base curve is exactly the same as the frame was designed to fit. Turbines have a base curve closer to 7, which makes them "flatter " than OEM X-metal lenses. Many people can't tell the difference, but the lens will be a hair closer to the eye and could have slight distortion. Most cutters can bevel the edge to make them work without any issues, but they are different than OEM.

Oh thanks!! Glad I just scored some Big Taco lenses for DIRT cheap...got about 8 of them. Going to pick up some more tomorrow.
