don't get discouraged man, I had a lot of questions when I first jumped aboard. these guys like to teach us the hard way. lol IAs I stated in the "Introduce yourself", I own a pair of X-Squareds with the X-Metal frames. I was told the frames are made of Titanium. Is this correct?
What are X Metals made of?
He's asking if they are made "OF" titanium .....not "IN" titanium finish.if it helps though, I've never seen a frame in the XS made in Titanium. the X Metal finish is the closest
I've seen. a picture of the SKU would help but, I still think they never made the XS in Titanium. I'm not a pro, so don't take my word for it.
You just gave me a headache, dude. And made me dizzy. I'm dumping my collection and switching to the O Matter frames, Thanks to you.Yeah, actually a Ti alloy instead of pure Ti.
And they liked to confuse us with reuse of names - Titanium was the main component of the alloy, but also one of the finishes. And they called that alloy "x-metal", which they also called the product line, but it was also one of the finishes. And then only frames made at the Nevada factory were considered part of the x-metal product line, yet they made a prescription frame out of the x-metal alloy.
So you had frames made of x-metal that weren't x-metals, and x-metals made of x-metal without an x-metal finish. It's led to a lot of questions... Not to mention the introduction of the "neXt-metals" as x-metals, which have no Ti at all...
BTW the Ti finish was only available for the R1, Juliet, and Penny. But with the R1 and Juliet, Ti had a slight yellowish hue compared to the more silvery plasma finish, but with the Penny, Ti looked like plasma on the other frames. And they didn't release the Penny in plasma, for comparison...
And then Frankly was first responded to by OakleyFrankFMJ, who was once accidentally called OakleyFreakFMJ in confusion with another member known as OakleyFreak. So does that mean he'll next be confused as OakleyFranklyFMJly???
