Okay, I own 2 pair of X-Metals. I recently purchased the Ferrari Badmans, but I also own a pair of Juliets. I know that the new frames are made of aluminum, but what were the Juliet frames made of?
"X-Metal is reserved for those models made at our Nevada factory... like Romeo, Juliet, XX, Penny, etc.

Jim"




2 pair of X-Metals you say? I cannot concur. ;)




:D

The whole Idea of calling the Bad and Mad man new x metals is disturbing (for me)
But hey thats what marketing does.
Polish a Chinese turd and sell it as a Jewel

Mythbusters once did a test of the saying "you can't polish a turd". Though at first it seemed impossible to disprove, they did eventually bust it.

It was done by hand, using a Japanese art technique known as dorodango. Using a glossmeter, anything higher than 70 gloss units is considered "high gloss"; Jaime polished a lion turd to 183 gloss units...
