Default Costa's....400 vs 580

Is it worth the extra $$ for the 580? What is the difference between the two? Tried talking to someone at a local sporting goods store, but they didn't seem to know.

Its not even close, I will never buy another pair of 400's. Spend the extra money on the 580's. The difference on the water is unreal. Alot crisper and more clear.

I sell Costaa. I tell people the difference between a 400 and a 580 lens is like looking at an old black & white TV as opposed to looking at a new HiDef TV

they both are designed to crack when dropped on a hard surface...so be really carefull. I have a pair that are delaminating around both lensesand i wonder if the so called lifetime warranty will will cover it...if you crak a lense ..forget about it..they'll make ya pay another 85 buckss for a brand new pair..my 02 cents...serioulsy thinking in switiching to another brand very soon.

580's for sure. As far the warranty goes, I stepped on a pair on a Sunday afternoon and broke 1 lense. i called Costa first thing in the morning and told them I was going to Key West on Thursday and they told me that if I would overnight them they repair them anfd over night the back. I received my glasses back on Wednesday with no charge except the overnight cost oneway. They paid the other way. You won't find that service anywhere.

let me ask you this if i may, i have a pair of brines and they have been through the works the past few years. they have paint on them and the costa symbols are missing out of both sides but i do take care of my lenses and they are not scratched near as bad as they should be. the thing is that the lense is both delaminating bad but i did not know that it was under warranty. would they still warranty it, even though the way the other looks?

Of course they make you pay for a new lense if you drop and crack it....the warranty says "Maunfactor defects" not we will replace them no matter what you do to them...if the lens is delaminating they will fix it but not if you throw them on the deck
