I have a pair of 1995 frogskins with blue iridium lenses. Lenses are quite scratched. I take it the new lenses don't fit the old frames.

My recollection is that the gen 1 Frogskins (metal hinges) won't accept the new lenses but the gen 2 Frogskins (plastic hinges) will. Not sure if others can confirm? I don't have any any more (despite my avatar...!)

Think that's correct. If not you can certainly buy replacement lenses to suit a MK 2 plastic hinge FRogskin from here > http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-VL-Polari ... 2ebf70729e

If you decide you want to sell let me know, broke another pair over the weekend :(

I'm loving my Mk2 Frogskins - identical to Fatal Swans...

Only problem is the pink bag* that have my kids in hysterics every time they see it...


* Soft case - not 'er indoors!

:D :D

Wow, those blue Froggies are cool as .... 8)

I had a basic clear grey metal-hinged pair bitd with grey lenses - all I could afford at the time. Sold them a few years ago for much the same as I paid new (£25 iirc) but wish I'd kept them.

I can feel a reissue coming on :P

The VL replacement lenses in John's post are good for the money. I bought a set of the 24k Gold VL lenses (for £17) to put in a reissue frame a little while back - they were really nice and fit perfectly.
