interesting Smith are replacing the usual sensor mirror with the RC36....and they don't have any in stock. They were getting a lot of complaints (including from me) that the sensor mirrors were fogging between the lenses, so they're (finally) probably (hopefully) changing things around with those.
for me, the RC36 are barely doable in overcast conditions and really pretty bad in overcast+shadowed (like end of the day when in the glades) - jack of all trades/master of none type deal.
I/OX lenses are too big and do not fit in regular I/O frames

I understand what you mean, wrathfuldeity. Everything seems to be limited in stock. I hope your daughter's stuff arrive soon.
Anyway, I got lucky at Smith optics website. They restocked on red sensor mirrors, platinum lens and ignitor lens. I'm going to order a red sensor from them.

My daughter is still waiting for some stuff she ordered in Aug/Sept and they noted that they are not shipping til mid dec. Her smith proform even took awhile to arrive.

|stunt66||I've been using my io's for 2 years now and i only ever use the mirrored lens. We get some nasty overcast days and in our group the lens range from the basic amber oakleys to some dark black electrics and every single person complains that they can't see.|

Ah thanks. I will keep an eye out on that site.
Also, guess I will have to drop an email to smith customer service and wait.
Amazon I've tried that too, no go.
LOL, have anyone tried snowboarding at night with ignitor lens or RC36 lens?

|hktrdr||These guys list the replacement lenses, but say they are out of stock. However, they will email you when the lenses are back in stock.|

I/OX lens are the same as I/O?
They are interchangeable? I/O lens can be used in I/OX frames?
I did try ebay and I discarded them because I thought they are not interchangeable.
Ok, thanks for the info.
