    Reccomed me some sub $100 polarized glasses

    Ok I want some cheap polarized sunnies. I had some good ones but I lost them.

    A local sunglasses shop had some but they all seemed to have a very blue or yellow tint 2 them. Would they do the job?

    Or those $50 ones from bcf?

    What should I look for in a pair of glasses?

    Also my fishing is kayak based freshwater, lake and estuary stuff.

    Also want a pair ASAP so ordering from USA or else ware is out

    Re: Reccomed me some sub $100 polarized glasses

    hi gros21,
    i only buy cheap ones now as my 2 little gremlin girls seem to have a knack of breaking them for me but i found the cheapest reasonable polarised ones are on sale at bcf, supercheap etc. for $30. at that price when i go thru 2 or 3 a year it dont matter!
    they do get scratched but only when i wipe the salt off dry.

    cheers ryan

    it depends how close you want to get to the $100 I have got some good sunnies from optometrist shops they do them as just a plain sunny not just prescription glasses and I reckon better priced for what you get to the sunglass shops

    Re: Reccomed me some sub $100 polarized glasses

    Agree with marlin mike.,

    I had spotters penetrator lenses ($240) and lost them recently..the old girl was up me and said I couldnt spend more than $100 on the next pair. Got a pair of Mangrove jacks on special for $45 at tackleworld and I would go as far as to say they are the best pair of sunglasses I have owned....even for poly lenses I reckon they are better than the spotters I had.

    Cheers Steve

    Re: Reccomed me some sub $100 polarized glasses

    I ended getting a pair of ocean sunglasses with amber lense $40

    They also had ugly fish and spotters but guy said end of the day the sub $100 glasses are much of a muchness all plastic lenses. He uses the cheapies himself.

    YEp got some MJs for around $60 and they have lasted me over a year. Comfortable and reasonably scratch resistant. Rule of thumb with colors- freshwater use go amber, saltwater go grey tint. Although on cloudy days I would prefer amber in the salt too.

    Get yourself down to your local safety shop and see what they have got in their safety spec range. We buy bolle's by the bucket load at work, they do the job well, reasonably cheap to.
