    Hi guys,

    Just wanted to check if anyone has compared linegear black R1 lenses against OEM oakley.

    I was replacing my lenses and they seem to be different? OEM seems to have a shiny surface vs linegear?

    Is this due to the iridium coating. Just wanted some feedback to confirm im not seeing things lol.

    What did you expect? OEM is OEM and Linegear is Linegear. They will be different. That's not saying Linegear lenses are bad, just not like OEM.

    Black mirror coating is not exactly identical across different manufacturers. There's differences in many shades of grey amongst them.
