What's the best all around lense for bass fishing. Not just for sight fishing but for general everyday shallow water fishing

Green mirror. Pay for the 580 Glass lens its worth it. Lots of good posts on here about the lens colors if you search around a bit.

I bought the green plastic on the first pair and didn't like them at all. They changed the natural colors and made the water look merky even if it was clear. I purchased another pair with the 580g glass lens in blue and I really like them and all the colors look 2 pennies

I've had the blue and the green glass. The green have an amber backing that does better with freshwater, in my opinion. On a super sunny day the blue works great, cloudy day green/amber works great (cancels less yellow light). Go with the glass wither way, plastic scratches up a bit more.

Are you wanting lense coating or lense color. As far as color Costa no longer has an Amber lense now it is copper. You can get gray lense with blue coating, copper lense with green coating or other combos. I personally like the copper/green combo although I wish they still offered the amber lense. My glasses are prescription.

The green mirror is probably the best all around. Keep in mind the glass lens is about twice as heavy so if you wear them for long periods of time be prepared for that. You can go to the costa website and they have some examples of how things look and recommendations on the lenses for your activity. I personally have the fantail realtree camo frames with green mirror 580P (plastic) and they are great. Good luck!
