i bought some copper glasses based on that article.

I usually buy flying fisherman amber glasses for around $20. these are Hobie and were around $35 on sale on eBay.

they are better but the old FF were pretty good.

i left my last pair of FF on Valley Creek

I like Coata, but they're overpriced.

Agreed,

Now having a little more use out of mine. Yes, they are better. The polarization is better, the clarity is better, contrast is better, etc. Now, I have a glass lensed version. It may be that this is just the first glass lensed sunglasses I've ever had, and I can't speak for Costa's plastic lenses.

But I'm not sure that they're $200+ better if you get my drift. Just not sure that objectively, ANY sunglasses are worth that.

It seems that despite my reluctance to become a walking catalog, I now have a whole bunch of super high end equipment. Simms guide boots, G3 waders, costa glasses, a top end bamboo rod. My god, what have I become!!! A fool and his money....

Ive been spoiled by Costa's and probably won't ever wear anything else but I also refuse to pay full price for them. Steepandcheap puts them up pretty regularly. Just picked up a pair on there for my fiance, $65.

I have been wearing Maui Jim glasses for many years. I have the standard amber lens and can really see into the water, cutting glare very well. All MJ lenses are polarized and I can wear them all the way to dark. They weigh almost nothing and are more durable than they appear.
I often suffer from eye fatigue when wearing sun glasses and with the Maui Jim glasses my eyes don't feel strained after wearing them for hours.

Due to eye problems, I wear my Maui Jims any time I am outside. Rain, snow, or sunshine. I even need to keep a back up pair handy in case of problems. The only thing that has damaged my last pair (I had for 6 years) was at Christmas time my wife accidently dropped a large serving plate on them. Needless to say that pair did not survive. Quality lens are a must for anyone with eye issues.

At the NJ Flyfishing Show there was a company that makes customized sun glasses with your prescription. They gave me a quote of $385.00. I felt it was a bit high. If I'm going to spend that much I want them to be Polorized and change with the sunlight.

I am due for some new prescriptions - so who has the best offers out there?

Most of the reputable companies will do Rx polarized glasses. Including Costa.

You're probably out of luck for $20 polarized cheapies, though.

SteelerFan,

what did you do that made the wife "accidentally" smash a large serving plate on your face?

Not a thing! It was just an accident and she did not complain one bit when I went out the next day for a replacement pair.
