I've got two pairs and both of them the arms don't sit straight when not on?

Anyone else find this?

    Mine seem perfect when open on the desk.
    Where did you get yours from?

    Do they look straight when you have them on though, surely this is the important bit.

    How would they look straight when on if they are not straight?

    One was from eBay with genuine details and the other from Oakley HQ

    The left arm seems to curve down more

    The orange lens were similar to the above ones but I've been slowly bending them to get it straight

    Is the lens and nose piece snapped in properly?

    My arms seem to curve in much more than those.
    Tips are 80mm apart which is the same as my Standard (non lock) Radar's

    With the lens out you should be able to twist the arms through at least 180 degrees without any ill effect.
    Do you doubt they are genuine?

    More obvious on the dark lens

    No I believe they are genuine as from Oakley hq, but would have thought they would be more straight?

    Were they sold as new or ones that had been used for testing?
    They bend the fcuk out of them when showing how strong/impact protective they are.

    What model number are they?
    Did they come with one lens each?

    One was bought used knowing it had a slight curve with two lens and case
    The other was from Oakley directly

    I'll try and bend them back in place

    Was the one from Oakley at full price, or some sort of big discount?
    I would get them to replace it if it were a full price/new purchase.

    How old is the new pair? Ever left them in a car on a sunny day?

    They are fantastic glasses IMO. Nothing comes close. All those people with fake ones or fake frames and real lenses should ask themselves how much they value their eyes :shock:

    Why from Oakley if they are not custom or discounted?
    Just return them and buy some in a shop.

    Do they look straight when you have them on though, surely this is the important bit.

    How would they look straight when on if they are not straight?
    Because sometimes peoples ears are not totally symmetric therefore the glasses arms are bent to accommodate it the same as with prescription glasses but if the OP wants to straighten them it's not a hard job.

    Oh, I see. You mean that they would not look straight but would fit an un-straight face :wink:

    So you are assuming the OP has a wonky face and it would still be a 50/50 chance they were eneven in the right direction :lol:
