Hmm, depend on how deep their pocket is hahaha. So far all those I sold to, quite a mixed number. Some yes some no.

Usually do people get transition lens with Lindberg Horn ? Or standard single vision lenses ?

Any particular reasons you prefer those models? Iirc they are quite heavy. Limit switch is a good choice or even lizard.
Their Temples feel more comfortable for you?

Any particular series you looking at? Old series/models might go for 700 plus or even high 6. New models generally 800-830.

Whichever looks good basically. I heard Lindberg is having a trunk show this mth so going to have a look. Btw is it true from rimless only Zeiss lens can be used for Lindberg?

Not true. Most Brands can use, most reliable so far are still zeiss, hoya and essilor. Their labs are trained specially by Lindberg to do their rimless.
Lindberg rimless are not those traditional frames with washers to hold the lenses.
Thus unless the shop has the specific Lindberg rimless drill machine or else.. use those 3 Brands where they are able to do up the frame.

Hi Gangsterkia,

No apparent reason actually. Just like the look especially cartridge. Ok I'll pay attention to those 2 you mentioned.

Thank you so much

Cartridge and fuller temple/legs are thicker so might give a slightly more hugging/weight to the frame which some individual like. Though my turnoff factor are their weight.

Switch to comfort 3.0? Or hoya dynamic premium. Evershine optical at TPY might be an option you can look at.

Petrol kiosk fit over is the best and cheapest. Wisest range of coverage, polarised and light.
