    I want to get clear and/or orange or yellow lenses for shooting.

    These are OLD and I didn't see the lens style on Oakley's M Frame page. Google owned me as well.

    Can you ID them?

    Or even better, link me to lenses I can buy? Someone has to have NOS.

    Thanks!

    They look like 1990-ish vintage. I have an old pair that (I think) is the same. Lens has gotten a bit scratched over the years so they have been relegated to yard work and weedeater/chainsaw duty.

    I believe it is the original hybrid lens model, throw a strike or new hybrid on it and be done.

    Those are Blades, they have been discontinued for almost 15yrs. The cool feature about the Blades was you could change the ear stems( known as trigger's) and nose piece to a different color scheme to off set the frame. The M frame replaced them.
    You may get lucky and find a sun glass store that may have some old stock, but it very doubtful. I've been wearing Oakleys for almost 25yrs. I've owned about 15 pair and got to know the CS reps fairly well when I worked as a swimming pool tech back in late 80's. The store I worked out of was a Oakly dealer so I was the one that my friends got to do their warranty and replacement stuff. I was in the same situation as you 15yrs ago, except my frame had cracked and Oakley had just introduced the M frame to the market and they had no Blade frames to warranty mine so they replaced it with a M-frame .

    Yep, I made a boo boo. :faint: Those are M frame Mumbo's , they are similar to Blades , the difference is Blades are straight frame with out the inverted peak in the center and the ear stems are slightly different. I did not look that closely at them. :embarassed:

    I really like using yellow lenses while shooting.. I never "understood" it, and still really don't.. Just seems to help me see better. :shrug:

    <<<< Is now in the market for some new Oakleys!


    I was in an Oakley store over the weekend. I had written Oakley off a long time ago as cheap over priced plastic. I have to say I was very impressed! Every pair I tried on felt incredibly comfortable and looked good. I was just throwing on any pair and was like, Wow!... these feel great! and the next and the next...

    I was very impressed.
