Is there a difference in color between the aqua frames ANS has had for a while and the sky blues ones from the new flexes?

Yes. They appear to be the same color in pictures, but are different. In pictures, they both look like the sky blue does in real life. The aqua color has a hint of teal to it.

That helps a lot, I've seen the sky blue ones in person so that gives some perspective.

Looking for some suggestions on bottoms for my orange frames, olive clears would be my dream bottoms, but lets be honest. That isn't happening

orange and black always looks good. Gray and olive also look good, but other than that, orange doesn't go with alot. 

 

I'm currently running with tan frames and black bottoms with a green tribal strap and a brass eagle strap.

Do: Blue IZE, regular clears, grey/greys (but at that point you'd might as well buy the olive/clears lol), white, camo Flex8.

 

Don't: Teal, red, highlighters, yellow/gold

 

You have a lot of options if you use a subtle strap/ear combo.

I need to get me some Revo 2.0s. My Event ears are starting to fall apart. It is going to be quite the pain in the ass to get both of my straps off the frame though.

You mean teal. And you mean for bottoms? ANS has their name wrong, the EPS is teal, the "mistake" LE frames that were supposed to be Sky Blue have been named Aqua.

 

Regardless the name, I'm pretty bummed they didn't release the "LE" Orange, Sky Blue, and Aqua for bottom colors. They've prevented so many new possibilities lol.

Clean clears look good on just about any frame. Yellowed clears, however...

 

I don't think I've ever seen them on E-Flex frames, you should post pictures here when you get them.  :tup:

The local national team, Air Assault Factory found a box full of brand new clear Proteus bottoms. They all wore them for WC and affectionately called the color due to yellowing from storage, "piss-facked".

unique, that's for sure. I probably couldn't pull them off, but they're pretty sweet. 

 

If it was mine I'd get the new style racing strap and dye the white JT logos purple... I think that could possibly look cool.

I was considering dying a Techno remake, but I've decided on a Celtic strap. I just have to wait to find a new one...

 

But yeah, it's my Baltimore Flex, hence the orange and purple (Orioles and Ravens).

You could just cut some off an eps frame. Ansgear sells frames and smoke lenses together for like 30ish. If you were to buy a lense it would cost you more than $20 anyway... so a $10 frame isn't going to break the bank, and it's worth it if you want to restore the grey frames.

Sweet, I'll look into that I've already got some lenses though.

 

I was thinking grey frames, black bottoms, revo 2.0 ears, either my chrome mirror or clear lense, and one of my km straps.

Every time I need new lenses I just order from ansgear and get the frames with a lense in it. Then I sell the frames for around $20- $25 afterwards. Which puts the lenses at around $5- $10, if you sell the frames.
