    If u tend to sweat more,Oakley appear to handle it better.

    These just popped up in an ad: ShadyRays https://shadyrays.com/collections/mens-collection

    $79. 100% UV. Polarized. Lotsa tints available. Free shipping.

    Their ad got my attention for their lifetime guarantee. Break them, lose them, or even just lie about it and they'll send you a replacement pair. TTBOMK there is a "service fee" when you do it, I don't know how much though.

    Anyone tried them?

    LOL doubtful. Don't mess with your eyes!

Surprisingly, you can get a decent set of sunglasses off of a Chinese seller from Ebay for under $50 (at most). I actually got my current pair of sunglasses for under $30. They're Oakley knock offs but they're polarized and photochromic which gives me a lot of value for my dollar. Comfortable too.

    Since they're so cheap, I wouldn't freak out as much if I lost or broke them.

    Correct. The EVZERO Blades with Road Prizm Lens. Perfect for golf (and driving and biking too!). Very similar tint to the Golf series lenses but I just see things a tiny bit better through them, especially the greens. I love it when you're wearing sunglasses designed so well that you totally forget they're on your face and that's what these are. Pretty hard to fog them up too.

    I've had the Prizm Golf and Golf Dark and sold both. If I had to choose between just those two I'd pick the Dark unless you always play first thing in the morning or late twilight. The regular Prizm Golf is pretty useless in full sun as the light transmission is too high.

    And for everyday sunglasses, Maui Jim Bronze lenses. Love 'em.

    Thanks, great info, never considered the road for golf, the two golf lenses look a little too pinkish to me.

    So to clarify, you have the Prizm Road Black lense. https://www.oakley.com/en-ca/product...t=888392471680
