I know they have a different arm to all others, is there a reason other than aesthetics?
Not really, though non-hammers seem to fit inside helmets (motorcycle, car racing) better.
And polished looks bitching.
I believe the hammer stems fits a bigger head more rather that the regular and imo it looks cool and unique the polish frames is my favorite it really is a attention grabber you will definitely get noticed.
Aside from carguy's point about straight stems fitting better in helmets, it's been shown that hammers and straights fit the same - if you line up two pairs, you'll the the stems' positions match once you get past the dogleg.
Personally, my polished pairs seem to fit a bit tighter, but I think that's due to the LG t-shox I have in them.
Here's some more info about hammers on Juliets:
Ta for that everyone, I like the look of the polished just wondered if they would fit differently overall. Have to keep an eye out for a pair (along with all the others)
I find the hammerstem version gives a little more clearance at the temples when putting on and removing the glasses and they definitely have a more aggressive appearance to them.
