I have decided to switch from Oakley's due to their not so great polarization and just curious what the best all around lens is that Costa offers. I beat the bank mostly so would like the best option for seeing structure in shallow water.

You want Amber tint for shallow water. Green glass will be about as good as it gets. Silver, amber, copper will also work. I'd be happy to help you get a pair if you want. I have a few frames you can try on in addition to those I listed for sale. Just shoot me a text or give me a call. Thomas 979-257-979six

Green mirror is the coating. You have to pick the lense color. Just picked up my new prescription today, green mirror/copper lense. I was told by Costa that amber is no longer available. Have not used them on the water only driving but really like them so far. I got the poly lense as I don't like the weight of glass lenses.

I have a pair, not that impressed with them. Quality not as good for what I paid for them.

580glass green mirror fathoms is what I plan to buy soon. I'm still using 400g Amber lens fathoms and they're rock solid. Hope all is well.

Yep that is definitely a different direction. ha

Since you have the 400g what is the difference with 580? Clarity?

Just a newer lense. I've had my 400s for 10 years and still going strong. It was the best they had way back when. Now the best is 580g. Probably see through water that much better, don't know for sure.
