Has anyone compared the Blue and Green Mirror lens in and around the stained Texas lakes? Which color is best and with can you see the fish under water very well?

I used both, but found I liked the blue glass better. Really it is just personal preference.

Blue is darker and MUCH better offshore. Green/brown/grey likely will work better for lake fishing. This chart may help you decide. I wasn't about to spend $250 on sunglasses and just always used cheapo polarized glasses until I won a pair of Costas...it's like going from Black and White TV to 4KHDTV!

It’s personal preference. I like the blue, especially on bright days at the lake. They are a little dark when there is some cloud cover, and you fall into that situation where you can’t decide to leave them on or not. The green ones I had were pretty good on the water as well, especially looking into the shallow water. They were better on lower light days. My wife has the gray lenses in hers, and they are way better in lower light and still good in the sun. I have never looked thru them at the lake though.

I wear the green mirror 99% of the time and if its cloudy and I remembered to bring them I'll use the brown lens. I have tried the blue mirror(different brand) and just went back to the greens. All personal preference I think. I want to try the new color "silver sunrise mirror?" for early mornings just to see if its as good as everyone says.

Gradient lenses/colored lenses generally are treated chemically by your eyewear dr. Clarity above or below water, windshields any trans. light bending surface is dictated by the quality of the untreated lens. Corning Optics have been the choice of ophthalmologist for years. Not all but the bulk of the new gen brands are worse than no shades. A little knowledge......

Just clarifying: are you stating that it is my imagination that I can see “better” under the surface with sunglasses or that it is my imagination that my eyes feel way less “stressed or tired” if I wear sunglasses on bright sunny days?

I use green for fishing. Blue for everyday stuff. The blue is darker

I prefer the Green Mirror when fishing in bright conditions.

Green Mirror is the best for sight fishing IMO, Blue Mirror is the best all around... again IMO.

I checked out a pair of cmates readers yesterday at a bps. The adds say no lines, but they are made just the same as other offerings, a small reader spot in the lower viewing area molded or cut in clearly leaving visible lines.

A bit disappointed. I was prepared to purchase a set, I really like Costa clarity and have/had a few regular frames over the years.
