I am having eye surgery and have to replace my script Costas. Not happy with this that said I need to see. Right now I wear eliminator frames with grey polycarb lenses that have saved my eyes more than once on missed hook set. I am not worried about low light situations I have skii googles for that. Being a fair weather fisherman mostly bright sunny days what lens color would you recomend. If anyone has tried most of their offerings it is you. Your imput would be greatly appreciated.

Bright, sunny days, blue mirror. They're mainly designed for open water. Best all around, Green mirror over amber. I have both, but if I could only afford one, it would be the green mirror over amber.

Green, blue, or silver mirror work great for sunny days. I have the green and the silver- green makes things a little darker the silver more like what grey does but sharper.

You made the right choice. I have both the blue and the green and like the green the best.

I have the blackfin frame with green mirror/copper as amber is not available any longer. The blackfin frame offers great wrap around protection from side glare. I also have a right eye issue that has been resolved thankfully. I was finally able to get my new script in February and discovered that Costa no longer offered the amber lense. The copper is a really good. I have also owned the blue mirror/gray which also a great product for bright days. I think the green mirror/copper is a better all round set-up.

I wear Costa Eliminators now they are discontinued. If they won't replace the lenses then the Jose for me.

I am a Costa guy built by fisherman for fisherman don't get any better than that.

I have used grey/smoke since I started wearing sunglasses nothing wrong with them. The grey lens color is the if it ain't broke don't fix it great grand daddy of all other polarized lens colors. Just want the extra protect the mirrors give.
