Leech H4X Night. I love lenses of those, but I should have taken bigger frame...Those are really narrow...

I'm Korean...we have big ass heads man. I know some of you guys think you have a big head, but Korean people have BIG noggins.

I randomly came across a pair of TAG Heuer sunglasses that were polarized that fit amazingly well...first pair of sunglasses that I could wear for more than a couple hours without a headache. But then the frames started deteriorating and they're all handmade sunglasses; so even others that I tried within the same line didn't fit like the ones that I had.

I recently started wearing Goodr BFGS. They're comfortable and stay in place but if you're not wearing a big hat, then the sun gets behind the glasses and they don't work well.

I did have a pair of Costas with 580 glass lenses, but they're so heavy that I could only wear them for a short period of time. Not to mention the frames are not all that well made...but boy those lenses are amazing!

I do want to get myself a pair of Maui Jims, but I just hate spending so much money on sunglasses ](*,) ](*,)
Have you tried for fit Maui Jim Big Wave?
Those look really promising! I'll have to give them a try some time! Thanks for that recommendation!

For an asian guy you must try the Ferg xl from Costa. Ive tried alot of there frames and this is a must for us asians.

Dont forget to try there global series too if you hadn't heard about them. Old but fits nice as well. I think the permit global and the fisch global are the larger frames.

Maui Jim Kipahulu with HCL Bronz Glass lens for me. I also own Oakley and Costa, but the Maui Jim's comfort and lens clarity is a mile ahead in my personal opinion.

Me too but I only have bronze lenses. Green are next.
I had costas before and Jim lenses are much better for clarity/sight fishing.

Asian w/ big head here :lol: ! Thanks for your recommendation. I ordered and returned two pairs of Costas w/ sunrise silver lens last week. Really wanted these lenses in a frame that fits without squeezing my head. Ferg XL Arrived yesterday and the fitment is perfect!

How is the nose bridge? do the bottom of the glasses touch your face? I had that problem with the Fisch.

Electric JJF12- removable eyecups which block sunlight and reduce glare.

I've been wearing the Maui Jim Big Wave for a little while now and once you adjust the nose pads, then they are VERY comfortable. Thank you guys for the recommendation!
