    I'm going to buy some oakley lens. Should I go with the standard gray, G30-pinkish lens, or the persimmon.
    The G30 is suppose to have great clarity, especially for golfers but I'm wondering if they will be dark enough. Not sure I like the pinkish lens.

    Then there is the persimmon lens....

    Thanks BSA

    Hmmm. Pink or persimmon? Tough choice there...:tongueout:

    Only lenses I've had on my Flak Jackets besides the stock gray are the polarized bronze ones and I love 'em.

    But then again I'm not a golfer either so apparently I'm just post-whoring.:whistling:

    Whatever, good luck with your choice.

    The only ones I use are dark ones and clear. Dont recall what the dark one is called.

    Personally, I'm a big fan of the Black Iridium Polarized.

    I have a pair with the Black Iridium Polarized in the Flak Jacket.. the previous lens I had were the G20
    not quite dark enough for me ... and didn't like the red tint... When I replace these lenses I will get another pair of Black Iridium Polarized but this time XLJ will be purchased.

    I have black iridium on my flak jackets and just ordered the strike style ice iridium lens for my M-Frames. Unless you're a chic... stay away from the pink or persimmon.

    +1. I've never had a complaint with these.

    VR28 Black Iridium Polarized. Best lenses they make, and I'm mad that I didn't get them.

    Whatever you do, don't clean the lenses with an alcohol prep pad from the CLS bag...

    It will NOT get them "extra clean..."

    Mine came with the grey lenses but they weren't even close to dark enough and quickly replaced them with black iridium. The yellow would make for good shooting lenses though.

    Gold Iridium Polarized is the way to go for me.

    Black iridium non polarized on every pair of Os I own. Can't stand polarized glasses.
