I've got some Costa 580 black and some green lenses and they are great most of the time. Just curious what brands/lenses you guys like on cloudy days?

Personally, I like copper/amber lenses from Costa.

Costa Sunrise Silver Mirror was hot last year for those conditions...I don't own any so no first hand experience.

I have a pair of Costa 580g Silver Mirror and they are great for overcast and low light conditions.

Have them. The SSM Costas are much better in low light. And you might be surprised how good they are bed fishing, regardless of light. thumb
