I forget if I mentioned it, but I added a piece of foam to close up the nose. The foam “relief” there is too much IMO, my nose almost touches the frame and I have to sag them too much for a seal.

finally popped some of the new Perceive lenses on my Sync’s this weekend. Variable Violet is damn close to what I remember the God-Tier RBC being. super versatile and great contrast. 

Sunny Onyx also has quite the purple hue to it, which I wasn’t expecting, but am not opposed to. 

Sonar Night is still the nighttime king.

Did the whole snowy day in storm rose flash with the squad XL. Previously I had only tried them briefly after the everyday red photochromic most of the day. Those are still light in lowlight or whiteout conditions, but they don’t highlight like SRF, and I realized the color tone is a bit on the cool side in those conditions. SRF, like RBC, adds a little warmth, like a cup of hot cocoa in the eyes. Wait 🤔

The short version is this is a high-end & still-produced rose blue chrome, the best lowlight lens ever.

I also grabbed the Squad XL after you snagged Pac's Spenser. I have never tried AB's RBC, but I find the storm rose flash great. It was pretty much the reason I bought the XL. The sun blackout looks more intense than it actually is and I went with it hoping it's not as likely to have the peeling issue as the mirrored lenses.

My only complaint so far is that on a extremely cold day I felt a ton of air coming in at one point while earlier in the day it wasn't a problem. Maybe it was just a fit issue, but before I grabbed the XL I read a review from someone complaining about the micro gaps between the lens and the frame in the corners of the goggle. I played with another model with the Mag tech and the lens fit super flush compared to the XL. It shouldn't be a major issue though. I guess it's just a consequence of the frameless design.

I have a big head. Or at least my eyes are wide apart and I have problems with most goggles. The padding touches the corner of my eye socket and therefore the frame also restricts the view. So I was looking for a new goggle and it needed to be wide. M4 was the best fit I could find, Line Miner not too far behind. If I could've found theme with a discount, I would probably have gone with the M4, but I just couldn't bear the price tag. 310 €, albeit two lenses and a face mask. I still remember when 100 € was too expensive for a pair of goggles. 

Anyhow, I found Anon Sync's for 100 € and so far am more than happy with theme. Of  course they are not as big as M4 (but are bigger than M3) and the difference is mostly on the height. The nose shape is same as M4, so fits better for me. And the lens change system feels actually better than the full magnetic on M series. Of course not as easy to change, but I don't have to worry about losing the lens on slams or the lens coming off when handling the goggles with one hand.

I would have gone with the Line Miner, but I need the Hi-Pink lens here up north and I didn't like how Oakley thinks if you want a pink lens you must want a pink (or white) frame as well. And although initially cheaper (than M4), with a replacement lens (or whole goggle) it wouldn't be that cheap any more.

Have you tried Dragon PXV and RVX? Supposed to have a wider fit.

I tried some Dragons. Can't remember the model or models right now. Wasn't bad, but not as wide as M4.

big fan of the syncs. like the extra security of the lock, and overall bigger fit than the m3. m4’s felt too monstrous for me, and i’ve got a pretty big face.
