There is so much classic Oakley design on the Tailend. It's easy to pick out inspiration from the Zero 0.1/2/3, the Mars/Moon, and the Madman which debuted about 2 months earlier. I love the laser-etched frosted effect around the lenses; it not only looks great, but you can handle Tailend's by the lenses without smudging them. The icons are a good, proportionate size. The ear stems have a very angular flourish just past the icons which compliments the "tabs" on the lower part of the lenses. The nose bridge has a spear-like underside. Reminds me of the new X-Metal nose bridges, or even the old Metallica typestyle. But it's subtle enough here.
Fits my face perfectly whereas the Madman has too much distance from my temples. The spring hinge well-implemented and quite necessary for a frame this small. By comparison, a larger frame like the Madman should not have spring hinges. Solid C5 aluminum frame. I have Carbon with Prizm Daily Polarized. A classy, but still edgy/non-conformist look. Very pleased. Would've been great if the nose bombs were Unobtainium like the ear socks. Also would've been great if Luxottica didn't make them in China. Oh well, can't have it all. I'm satisfied. -Surfaced
