    There's a White Chrome Ten frame auction on eBay that I've got my eye on but I've heard that anything chrome related tends to peel. Should I skip it?

    the straight jacket II, with the white chrome frame, have the problem. they start peeling if you wear them hard enough. . .
    i don´t have the problem with my, but i have so many glasses in rotation, that i don´t wear them so often.

    the BMX radar & jawbone have the same problems.

    almost all of those FMJ - chrome frames are peeling after hard use......

    What is it exactly that causes the peeling? Is it just prolonged use and nothing else? Humidity? Dryness? I live in the DC Metro area which means hot humid summers and dry cold winters.

    I saw a Black Chrome Splice years ago that literally peeled in the display case without being touched...every time i went by it was a little worse...maybe the lights...no idea....I pointed it out but they left out for sale at full price...

    i think it's prolonged use, and humidity. that's just my guess. =)

    It could also be the repeated exposure to sweat and oil from our skin. Funny thing is my 24 k xmetal xx gold paint is rubbing off where it touches my skin

    I talked to one of the guys are the O Store today and he said that the FMJs aren't supposed to peel since they applied an extra coating or something like that. Any truth to this?
