I have a pair of Costas with the 580G lenses. I went on vacation and didn't want to damage the Costas, so I stopped in Wal-Mart and bought a pair of 15 dollar glasses with the blue mirror plastic lenses. They're lightweight and work fine for 15 bucks.

The strike king s11 are good lenses but they scratch very easy and the mirror comes off easy too

Ive had them all... if you are gona go through a pair of glasses every 6 months. Then get strike king... i keep a pair in the truck... step up from there wileyx

If you can keep them longer... get costas GLASS LENSES... plastics dont count get the 580s

I didmt want to buy in, but ive been converted

I had the glass lenses in my Costas and they didnt justify the price. Traded them for a Curado on here and im much happier with the reel...
