Columbus RX or ?X tubing?

I saw a bike on craigslst, stated as early 90's. there is fuzzy pic of a columbus sticker..... it looks to be RX the X is clear but the first letter could be something other than R.


but looking at columbus tube infor I only see 3 letter X tubing spx, tlx, slx, max.

amy idea what this might be, other than worn out sticker?

Well...if you browse the blog site of Angel(o) Garcia you'll see he has amassed quite an extensive collection or rare and obscure Columbus tubing decals...only thing more impressive than what he's done is how many of these decals Columbus has produced!
You will see that there are many tubes that end in "X": such as SLX, SPX, TSX, PRX, MAX, Matrix, Metax, SLPX, GPX, MINIMAX, Tenax, and FMX...there's alot there that I've never seen before, ANYwhere so they are probably very special limited and custom tubesets for specific manufacturers.

I don't see any that have just 2 letters, the second being an "X", but clearly Columbus really liked naming tubes with monikers that ended with "X"...
Chances are good there's something that even Angel hasn't seen yet.
