My main shop said they were only able to get their pre order inventory, doubt they could get more and some item were just sold out at the distributor level. 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.
Yeah, this time of year is tough for hot items like the I/O or IO/X. Happened to me last year. I was dead set on a pair of I/Os but everyone and their mother seemed to want a pair.

extra0 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

binarypie Even smithoptics.com doesn't have them in stock.

Tropical 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.

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.

Tropical 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.

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.
No, my bad - I missed the X in your original post. Pretty sure I have seen the IOX lenses on eBay as well, but right now it is only the complete Googles.
Keep an eBay search and also drop an email to Smith customer service.
