    Will do. My greatest concern is going to be the quality of the line. Fine with no blend is perfect, medium is ok I guess, fat with any blending is not good.

    Price is secondary, but significant.

    Good luck with it.

    While these lenses were initially available from a few test labs, they are now in wide release, available from all labs.

    I've been using them for a while now with success. My only thought was what took so long? I think it may have been an imbibing processing issue. Too lazy right now to see if it's in the transition forum.

    Seems to me that we on the left coast get stuff after the rest of the country. I think it was just a logistical thing, as there are lots of labs with lots of now obsolete stock that had to be cleaned out. Maybe I do need an east coast lab just to see what's available...

    I'm here in sunny California and I use an east coast lab and they are just now (within the last month) able to get it.

    Click settings- then edit profile- scroll down to Custom User Title and fill in the blank- (Do you get what I really must be if I'm a "Compulsive Truthteller"? Yes it is a trick statement!!!)

    No, I don't see the trick in that handle.

    Just out of curiosity, would any issue arise from having a really high abbe on the front and a really low abbe on the back?

    I think this is the idea behind the new hybrid trivex on poly ft-28 by transitions. It probably will have about the same chromatic distortion as straight poly.

    I edged my first pair yesterday. It edges and loads up the wheels like Trivex, no processing like poly about it.
