    I love my costa del mars, they are scratched and one arm is JB welded back on but the removable glare guards work awesome, and I see really well with them. I too believe that I have the Amber lens' and it took me a while to get use to them being polarized and slightly brighter than most shades but love them now.

    I have never, ever dropped a "cheap" pair of sunglass's in the water! :lol:

    The Berkley ones are pretty good, especially the ones with the built in bifocals for those of us who need them. :eek:

    I had no idea that sunglasses were fishing tackle. More likely they are safety equipment for healthy eyes. Maybe we should have a separate forum for fishing cloths and on for hunting cloths with sub forums for shirts and shoes.

    Way to many forums.

    I just go with the $15 -$20 stuff at Gander Mountain, but I ALWAYS go with amber lenses (polarized, of course). Even in bright sunlight they do the job for me. Also seem to distort color less than dark lenses

    I would consider my polarized shades tackle, they have helped me catch lots of fish. I can leave the cranksbaits in the box, the jerkbaits stowed away but I never get on my fishing boat without my glasses.....just saying.

    I 2nd the using them for saftey glasses, the wrap around design keeps crap out of my eyes when I'm using the skill saw or w.e.!
    As for price I wont spend the high $ on eyewear anymore, lost to many pair over the years, tho I would recomend Polycarbonite lenzes, they are way more durable meaning less scratches and they are shatterproof!

    Costas. Anyone that sight fishes a lot knows they are as important as any other piece of equipment you carry.

    Yup that is right Sten.

    Same company that makes the fishing lures. The came out with this pair of interchangable glasses brown and gray. Lost the first pair, just cant seem to find the second pair. I have a few replacement lenses.

    They are no longer available... even called the company trying to find em. Best glasses I have ever wore. Light, cheap, practical.

    That's what I was wondering who made good bifocal ones at a reasonable price. With my CRS disease it doesn't make sense to spend big bucks on sunglasses. And yes Robert sunglasses are tackle, I need them to go fishin.
