I wear my blue mirror 580 everyday, if it is overcast I switch to a green mirror. Blue is a gray base which is better for bright days(they will be your darkest) Green mirror are a Amber base which is a brighter lense for overcast days. Also green is better for inshore sight fishing. Most will tell you a Green Mirror for everyday use, if you have to chose just one lense color, then I would agree.

580 G with green mirror. I like the visibility of these in all conditions. They are good shallow, deep, low light, bright sunny afternoon, wherever. I like the glass cause I'm rough on lenses. Good luck!

I kind of disagree with the above about the Green mirror. I have both the green mirror and silver mirror. I think green is too dark for low light conditions. The silver mirror for me is better for cloudy and low light conditions. green are phenomenal when it's bright out. I do tend to find myself wearing my silver mirror more. They have an amber base as well.

Harsh bright sun, Blue Mirror 580. It has a grey lens.

I wear the blue mirror 580 when driving or on bright sunny days on the water; green mirror also is good when the sunlight is less harsh; but my favorite for lowlight and sight fishing is silver mirror 580...i can also see my sonar units better with the silver mirror. For early morning, late evening, or fog I have read that the color sunrise is good but I have no experience with that color....gets expensive.

I've been wearing Maui Jim with a gray lens and have trouble seeing my graphs. Does either work better in that aspect?
