Hello. I've wore cheap plastic sunglasses for some time, while my friends have had nicer, higher quality Oakleys. I finally decided to grab a pair myself, went to the store and found nothing available like what my buddies had - everything was either bulky plastic or heavy metal-frames. I went back to my friends and asked what they had, to which they said X-Metal Juliets. I've been doing some Googling, and want to confirm what I think I understand so far. X-Metals as they were made pre-2010 were a Titanium alloy line of frames that were lightweight and good for a variety of sports (I run and bike, so if they are light enough to not bounce while I move, that'd be great). The Juliet model hasn't been made in a number of years. Even if I was able to get my hands on a pair (I know there's a deals section on these forums, but for the moment I'm just seeing $300+ listings on ebay), Oakley may or may not be able to provide repair services should they be needed. So, some questions. Is everything I said above accurate, or am I misunderstanding somewhere? I know they look good and feel comfortable, but is there a big advantage to these frames that makes it worth it to get something old and potentially not serviceable (gotta DIY repairs)? Why do you like them? If I want to pursue this, I'll have to look through the Deals section to learn where/how to get a pair. I'm not even sure if Juliets would be the best option, because I don't know the 'old' models at all. Is there a way to learn about what is available? And after I learn about that, I'm going to have to get caught up on all these different kinds of lenses... it's an overwhelming amount of information. Can anyone help me get started?
