For around $120 you can pick up a pair of Costa Fathoms with the CR-39 lens at Boatersworld. Lifetime warranty.....I just sent my 8 yr old Wave Killers in for a complete lens change out and frame rebuild for like $80.00 can't beat that deal. They are well worth the money

Glass lenses...the way to go

Glass weighs more but is far superior in optics and scratch resistance. I have had them all and now sport a pair of Magellans(sp?) with glass lenses from Academy...I think they were like $59 with a blue mirror lense. Most glasslenses start at $150 and up.

I used to use the cheap ones, then I broke down and bought my wave killers and will never go back. look at it as a investment just like a good rod and reel combo your eyes will feel so much more relaxed when you come off the water after being out there all day, they really make a huge difference in protecting your eyes. The cheap ones will allow you to define grass lines and potholes but they do nothing for your eyes

I have always used cheap ones for fishing. Do the high dollar polorized glasses make that much mroe of a difference than the cheapies? I use the cheapies because if i get one tiny scratch on them it drives me insane and I just dont see spending a $100 on a pair of glassses every couple of weeks.

My Costas don't scratch easy, see if the retail outlet will let you take them outside and compare .. On the water it matters.

The lenses are much more resistant..Plus, if you jacked them just send them in free repairs. Friend of mine shattered his lens this spring and his sent them in...they sent them back good as new...no charge. I have had mine for 3 years and they are still like new.

Ya, go look on eBay. I bought some new fathoms on there for like $100.

I use to use the cheap glasses and i can tell you that the coastas make a difference. And they have a lifetime warranty to go with them.

Pescador model works well with for us guys with bigger brains, I mean heads. Have a pair and are very comfortable. Have sent mine in twice and repaired at no charge. Well worth the investment. Could have bought 5 pairs if I add up how many cheap pairs I bought.

Cost Del Mars are worth it. Buy the glass lenses, they are very scratch resistent and will pay for themselves serveral times over because they won't scratch every time you sit them down like many other poly lenses. Costa's are the best I have worn, the color and claity is worth a little extra for me. Besides, when you buy a quality pair of glasses and take care of them, $150 over ten years or so isn't really that expensive.
