Been an X - Metal fan since the first time I laid my eyes on the Romeo .. I had to get one , I finaly did purchase in the winter of 1999 - 2000 . Believe it or not this pair got lost / stolen a few years later I coudlnt resign myself to buy the Juliet or the XX metal , until someone pointed me to eBay a few years ago and I grabbed my beloved Romeo , and restoreed them , since then I been using eBay to quench my thirst for X-metal purchasing , wearing a few days and reselling becuz of course I cant afford to own more then 4 pairs of X-metal. Strictly an X-metal Fan. The Rep. at Oakley Canada calls me the Juliet guy ( dunno IF I like it but hey what can I do )becuz I did purchase all the Possible lens available for the Juliets

These are for my Personal collection these are NOT for reselling purposes , I have many items to trade mainly in the Xmetal serie some Mframes and some ltd (but common ) Gascans , I am willing to buy if the price is right , thank you .
Need both pairs or only one . Also the Ichiro 's can be Blue Iridium or OO blue , its fine by me as long asd they have signature on it . Lookin for BRAND NEW FLAWLESS LENS .

NO I dont feel them at all.. I totally agree tho they should be released in another line , they might get more popularity , lets face it tho , Oakley is still kikin ass with the old X-Metal line but expecting anything new , I mean I still have hopes but lookin what they did with R2 and halfX I m like ...

1.07 , RECORD never reached that much ever ...
Can you imagine , go on Oakley.ca look at the pricing , and then go on Oakley.com Oakley is still charging us about 1.50 exchange in favor of the US .for example the Romeo 2.0 polarized are 660 CAD , while they are 400 US ...
I wouldnt balme Oakley for not adjusting there price since everybody does it . Lets just say If you have money , better wait then purchase from retail store . ( they will eventualy adjust)

thx both of ya , ya I used the tool in the picture for the etching , but I never been goood at doing fonts so it is not for me , but anyone with good drawing skills could do amazing job with it ..
I tried to go from juliet Hi I persimon to Penny , but I ended up too short on the side , I guess I finaly learned my lesson .. The thing is it takes em around 10 minutes to complete the lense but it takes about 20 minutes to make the fine tune adjustement , this is the part that should not be rushed .. I am proud of my first Juliet + red they are flawless this time I did put 3 rows of tape to make sure if I skipped it wouldnt go right tru ( saved me a lens ) and Since I did tape both side , I was lucky to be saved by the tape inside as well , hahaha , I can laugh , these are definitly worth what they cost me , bought them straight from OAkley , and paid CAD 115 , will get my next + red on eBay tho specialy with Canadain Dollars these days its worth it . thx again to both of ya .
Btw + red is my favorite too .

hey , thx a lot to you mate I finaly succeded at doin a few custom cut . btw may I ask why you cut the tape ? I tried without cutting it and I dont see any diffrence , also in your guide it is unclear if you do tape both side of the lens...
one of my favorites believe it or not comes from the 1$ store lol ( looks like Blue Iridium except its mostly green in the middle and lots of Purple at the end, I bought several cheap sunglasses to practice before doing the real thing on my Hi persimon Strike Lens , Well believe it or not I skipped 3 times on my first lens , and there is a few scuff on that lens, ( it went thru the tape) I guess I was a bit too excited to finaly cut some real Oakley lenses.
the second one is perfect ..
I did engrave 'custom ' on both 1$ lens and tho I am not good at this the tool was workin real great.
Also I used a 'unknown' 'abrasive' to polish the edge and they look very good with it , I will grab the one in the guide and see witch one does a better job but you might wanna take a look at usin this one cuz it did the trick for me .
anyways here are my picks

lol thanks for stating the obvious but I have never seen a pos red that blue , so my question is still unanswered , is it lighting is it just selection of the bluest you could find , witch lens was it originaly mframe ?
and the Blue Romeos , it says hi persimon but in the folowing post he was talkin about snow gogles , sorry if that is all obvious to you but I am strictly an X-metal fan so all those lens color not available to X-metal model are new ground to me ..
Just a heads up : I grabbed a 'digital rotary tool kit ' 250 pc. including holder mini rotary tool and flex shaft all for 50 $ at Costco ( in Canada), so yea its worth it , the brand is not Dremel of course its King Canada or something like it , lookin forward to my first custom ..
One more thing about the tape, are masking tape and
pre - mask 2 different things ?

and these are definitly one of my favorite to , u said these are snow gogles right ? but what is the exact name of the color ?
Oct 16, 2007 9:56 PM
hey mate just saw these , amd I would sure like to replicate this color for my Romeos AND my Juliet , please let me know what lense you used ( type /color) it says it s positive red but I never seen one with that much blue in it , or is it just lighting ?
