    Trophy Points:
    I have a pair of whisker and a pair of nanowire.

    The size of the whisker for me is a little bit tight.

    The size of the nanowire for me is looser than the
    Whisker and is more comfortable.

    Now I am thinking of buying a pair of why 8.0 and 8.1

    Does anyone know the size of these 2 compare to that of
    Whisker and nanowire ?

    Trophy Points:
    I currently have the 8.2 and had the 8.1, but sold it as it was smaller than i had liked. A lot of it (the sizing) has to do with the shape of the lens. Since the 8.2 is rectangular vs the 8.1's oval shape, the mounting points for the earstems sit further out.

    I've never tried on a pair of nanowires, but i do have a pair of Square Whiskers that i used as Rx frames and i know i like the Square more than the Standard Whisker because of the lens shape. I think the fit of the two were very similar.

    If you're saying the whisker was a bit tight for your, the Why frame may not be for you.
