So I'm obviously pretty new to the metal sickness, but I gotta say it seems the X Squared is having a new spring here. When I joined a couple of months back, it seemed that Juliet's was all the rage, and Juliet....well she still sees a lot of action, but XS has been like a comet lately. My metal experience started with the Romeos and apart from the obvious design flaw with the ultimate spider cracking of the lenses they still are the pinnacle of innovation and disruptive attitude of Oakley. Second to none the Romeo is a different beast all together. And as we move down the line of Juliet, Mars, Penny, XX, and finally the XS, it dawns on me. As the last of the true X Metals and they really are the culmination of all learning during Oakleys Mad Scientist Era. Spider cracking - fixed Nosebridge rivets- replaced Hammerstems v 2.0 and then some- check Length of said hammerstems -better Sunglass vault- included Orbital cushion to make sure lenses fit - installed Would I have liked to see Oakley continue making replacement parts for these and all other metals- sure, but then again replacement parts are readily available from several aftermarket companies. Romeo is a work of art... X Squared well I gotta say, you went out with a bang Oakley. I can't ask for more in a frame. I absolutely love them. I find myself reaching for the XS more then my Romeo, and I wonder...... Is it because I'm too afraid of damaging them, or do I quite possibly like more how the XS wears? Mind you I got a Romeo with BI with etching and they are mint, heck I even got a replacement lens kit with original OEM BI with etching....MINT!! still the xs is how I roll.... I dont know guys. What are your thoughts?
