Another good review. I'm liking the change in background. Nice change of scenery.
I'm also liking the Triggerman as well. Despite the criticisms that it should've been a new release in the X-metal family (which I would've liked), the TM is a great release. Oakley has consciously been switching to lighter, more supple O Matter in its frames for wearing comfort (some call it cheaper), and I think this release has benefited from it. Frames just wear so much better with the upgrade in lightness and fit well with all-day comfort.
I agree with the pin hinge issue. Not liking it.
As for Torch, it is a nice lens, but my preference leans more towards Fire, Ruby and +Red. Would love to hear more comments/reviews on the lens (including the polarized version).
The TM is really the only new release I'm interested in getting! I feel kinda disconnected since I haven't bought anything O except for the Store Front in awhile now. I don't have anything "Torch" so that would probably be my choice but the new Matte Black/Sapphire Polarized is a banger too. I agree with Oak on the change in background/scenery. You can barely hear that damn smoke alarm so that's a plus as well. LOL. Great review as always Dann.
The kitchen works well for when I have a lot of stuff I need to access. For this single pair, I was able to just wing it. Just no good table access in my office unless I balance a piece of lexan on a step ladder like past videos.
Torch, I feel, is a little more versatile being a lighter base. It's fine for mid-day sun, but buys you a few extra hours later in the day too.
Great review, as always. I haven't had any real time with my pair since receiving it recently. But I think that hinge was the first annoyance I noticed. My pair seems excessively difficult to open and close, missing that snap of the dual cam hinge. Just hope it doesn't become a QC issue in the future.
