I have some white Caballito's with green mirror 580 lenses and really like them, although I get a little fatigue on the top of my ears when wearing a hat and fishing daylight to dark! My dad has some fathoms that I personally think are a little more comfortable for really long days on the water. If I was to buy a pair brand new now, I would probably just get some fathoms.

I have a pair of both. Have the caballitos white frame with blue 580g and fathom silver frame with blue 580g. I like both of them. The fathoms are a little smaller profile but other than that both are good glasses

I've had a pair of these for 3 years, like BigTex9 said they can be uncomfortable above the ears after a long day. I have the gloss black frames and over the years sunscreen has crinkled the finish on the frames it doesn't affect them other than appearance. Overall I like them, the glass quality is excellent.

I have these exact glasses and like them. However, I considering getting a pair of the Fathoms specifically for sight fishing. The Fathoms definitely fit closer to the face and block out more sunlight. As has been mentioned, the frames on the Caballito's are a little heavier than some of the other models and after a full days of wear can be a little uncomfortable above the ears. However, I did just add the neoprene retainer and it seems to help with the discomfort by adding a little padding between the frame and your ear.

Ok thanks guys. My son won a pair of white ones with 580G Geen lenses at the Ford Megabass. They are too big for his face and he feels like they are gonna fall of when he wears them so he put them back in the case after wearing twice. If any one is interested, let me know. He'd like to test fit some and buy some different ones after selling the Caballitos. Hopefully this comment doesn't bump me to the classifieds for they are already listed there.
