Does the green mirror actually give a GREEN TINT as you look out, or does it actually have a different tint looking through it?
The 580g green mirrors are bronze based lenses. Very good all around choice for freshwater fishing. The blue mirrors are gray based, I like those too.

I see. So it looks green from the outside but looking through it, it is bronze? If so, perfect because bronze is my fav color for acuity/contrast/fog overall. Yellow is better for fog I think but Bronze is the best all rounder.

Now I just have to find an optometrist that gives discounts on these..... They cost more than a washing machine which is a bit breathtaking to think about.

I finally had to give in and get a pair of prescription sunglasses... Maui Jim has been a long time personal favorite of mine because of the quality of their lenses. I ordered up a pair of their Waterman-410 sunglasses because of the integrated strap, built in venting, and wrap around design.

The fit can be a little goofy at times because of that strap, but they are secure and work great.

Curious what a set of those would set someone back. Love the venting

I use Oakley Jawbone with prescription lenses. Lenses are like $300 from my optometrist. Oakley could not make them due to the prescription details. I use both yellow for low light and blue mirror over brown for normal use. I like the Jawbone as I can switch out the lenses if needed...but I have both white and black frames.
