Save you some money. I go to the local welding supply company and buy the $25 nemesis polarized. They work just as well as my old Costas. You can get you several pair for that budget. Just my 2cents

4 years ago I went on a cruise and had a stop at Key West. I went into a sunglasses shop and bought me a pair of sunglasses. They told me they had a lifetime replacement guarantee against loss, damage, anything. I wanted a good polarized pair of sunglasses. I gave about $40 for them. I still have them but after a couple years they got scratched up a little. So I logged on to their website, picked out the ones I wanted, put in my code, paid $10 shipping, and a week later had a new pair sent to me with another replacement guarantee coupon. Last week I did it again and got another new pair for $10 shipping. The polarization is great on these glasses and they are very durable. If you want to pay $200 by all means do. But if you want to save some money and have a quality pair of fishing glasses you can keep on the boat and has great polarization Solize by DelSol is a good choice. They change colors in the sunlight too which is cool. Check them out at I most recently got the Surfin USA model and very happy with them.

Costa are nice glasses. Most prefer the 580G, I prefer the 580P. They are lighter and more comfortable to wear all day.

Costa 580G is the best hands down

I love my Blackfins!

overpriced... the mold injection machine will make like at least 10 frames every 20 seconds.... then the glass will not cost more than 100 dollars.

With that budget I would go with the Costas. I still need to prove to myself I can keep a pair longer than a year before I make that investment. I've had my current XPS brand for well over a year so once anything happens to these, I will probably make the switch
