Default Polarized Glasses

Are all polarized sunglasses created equal? Trying to decide whether or not to consider investing in a high dollar pair.......or is all the hype, basically, in the name?

they're not all created equal, I wore Ray Ban's for yr's, then went to Oakley's then switched to Costa's. been wearing nothing but Costa's for about 8 yr's now.....I know some guys have had problems with warranty service but I've never had a problem......I just got a pair of $200 Harpoon's w/ 400 lenses warrantied out, the lenses were delaminating after wearing every day for a yr and a half and I broke them between the lenses and it cost me $36....can't beat that on a pair that I wore every day for that long.....I use them every day driving and in the tower.....

I've probably sent back 6-8 pair and that's the most I've ever paid to have a pair replaced. I also recently bought a pair of Fathom's 580's with the new silver mirror and love them too.....I got them at Outcast. I've heard the guidelines are good but haven't bought a pair yet.

The old addage , you get what you pay for holds true for everything including sunglasses. I can say I used to wear cool ray poloriod sunglasses and had no complaints but now you can't find a decent pair of cheap glasses.

Been a Costa man for about 5 years now.. The Hammerheads with vermillion lenses are AWESOME for sight fishing reds!!!!

I do hear great things about the Guidelines as well!!!

I had the same H-heads as you. Put on a pair of Rio Elites from Guidelines and there's no comparing. G'lines hands down.

I agree Joe I have 2 pair of Costa Hammerheads 580's but like my Elite Rio's way better when sight fishing.

Costa Del Mar all the way. They have been the leader in fishing glasses for a long time for a reason. A lot of quality polarized glasses out there but Costas are in a class by themselves.
