I'm looking for a set of WHY, specifically rimless. Let me know what you've got.
you can also look into the nanowire series
I agree with Brian! The Nanowire series is 10x better than the Why series. I had a pair of Why 8.2's, and they were a little on the heavy side. I don't think the lenses were anti-reflective either. The Nanowire 1.0 is extremely cheap at the moment, has the Anti-Reflective layer & the Hydrophobic coating on the front. I have the Nanowire 2.0 & they are still my favorite pair to date.
I would also check out the Ice Pick. They are such an underrated pair, but work the same (rimless).
Other than that, the Why's are a great pair anyways . Best of luck!
I have a couple of Nanowires and Ice Picks for sale, so if they peak your interest... ;-)
Wow, thank for all the recommendations guys. That's another reason I love this forum - there are so many knowledgeable people. I'm a beginner, so I'm learning a lot just browsing through, and even more when I get replies like these.
Nanos r on ebay all the time for around $50 nib. I bought a pair. Its a good deal if u don't mind MPH...
Just a reference:
Extremely light weight & comfortable. Lenses have amazing coverage, and are loaded with the Hydrophobic Coating.
Extremely Light Weight & Comfortable. The arms can be bent over completely, and they'll snap right back. The lenses are large I believe. I have never seen a pair first hand, but I know the lenses are a little bigger than the 2.0's.
This is the pair I was referring to in my earlier post. These fit so well & are amazing durable. Completely rimless, have the Hydrophobic coating & the Anti-Reflective coating. I have both the Vr28 Black Iridium Polarized & the Black Iridium Polarized pair. They are a little smaller than the 1.0's.
Again, an amazing pair. These are very similar to the Splinter's that Oakley has in store...in fact, they are almost exact replicas. However, they are much more comfortable than the Splinter's and sport the same awesome perks that the older models have. However, it is not rimless
There's a ton of different Why models, but this is the only one I have ever owned. From what I remembered, it was a little heavy compared to the above, but have a nice feel overall. These are extremely hard to find though
Very kind of you brother. Thanks.
Not a problem! I know I went a little overboard, but I'm a huge fan of the Wireframe shades. I feel like they don't get any love haha.
