View Full Version : what sunglasses do you use?
09-17-2003, 01:37 PM
I was just curious about how many of you spend a lot of money on sunglasses like I do. I have a pair of Maui Jim glasses that I could not do without. Looking into a stream is like looking into an aquarium.
I think that a quality pair of sunglasses(polarized) will help prevent eye problems later on.

I have three pair of Oakley polarized glasses. The ones I use will depend on the light conditions. Eyes are hard to replace so don't hurt them with junk glasses. My daughter and wife both have Oakley polarized glasses for the times I can drag them out fishing.

I wear action optics. I think i have about 5 pairs right now with 3 or 4 in the waters i fish.
They are great glasses.

I have spent a small fortune on sunglasses. Had three pair of prescription Action Optics that didn't fair too well in my pockets or as a seat cushion, Using a new style of RayBans that are glass and wrap around. Worked really well. Prefer a Lt. Brown polarized lens. Lost more glasses than care to admit to losing. http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-hitting-self.gif

You can't beat a good pair of Hobie shades. They were one of the original polarized manufacturers. Beware though, these sunglasses do not swim very well. I found that out last week. http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-hitting-self.gif

SD you are so correct. I found out that at Lake San Antonio one day. Decided that riding a wakeboard with my kewl Hobbie fishing shades. One quick tumble, a broken Croakie and bye bye.
RayBans don't float either. http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-hitting-self.gif
June Lake holds 2 pair of RayBans, a 2003 fishing license, a 2003 replacement fishing license, three baseball caps, an anchor that I had to cut one day, and a few other miscelleanous items: That is the cost of fishing in 2003 at June lake.

i use a pair of mako's now. i found a pair of orvis glasses on the bottom of a river in montana. i thought they were cheap, but i looked them up in the catalog and they were like $200. they were better than the mako's. long story short....on the same river that i found them.... i sacrificed them back to the river thanks to a hell storm of caddis that were flying in my face, mouth, nose.... i had them on my hat, and i quickly found out that they didnt make the best flyswatter.... http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-hitting-self.gif

6 or 7 pairs of Maui Jim's Kahuna Tortuise frame, HCL lens. in about 4 years- I lost count.
I just lost my newsest pair (April) on an island in the delta- never to be found again except by the indians roaming the barren earth in year 3488.
I pieced together a tempory pair from some bent frames and scratched lenses off my old one's.
Trying to get the nerve to go throw down another $228.00 At least Maui Jim keeps sending me their coupon for $20.00- They value there biggest cashcow http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-hitting-self.gif
Was looking on Ebay- you think their are counterfits on there that are $100's cheaper?
PS- mabey Jesse can start another thread for "sunglass hunting" like the Shead Hunting thread. http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-idea-blu.gif
