Looking for a new pair of sunglasses for this season and just saw these "fishgillz" on vs. channel. Are they are good as they make them out to be?

FishGillz are awesome, I fish professionally on the redfish circut and they are all I use, you can pick them up at Gander or go to fishgillz.com and by the way they do float,,, I use the avalon / bronze lense

I used to buy those walmart cheapies too. Problem is if you look at them they are scratched. Last year I bought a pair from BPS they had polycarbonate lenses and the polarization is much better than the cheapies and they are scratch resistent and a lifetime warranty.

I am not sure how the fish gills are by comparison but as with a lot of things I have purchased in the past you get what you pay for buy it less often and usually come out ahead buying quality.

Costa Del Mar's with the 580 GLASS lenses are the way to go. Expensive? Yes without a doubt. But talk about being able to flat see everything below the surface! Save up and get you a pair, you won't regret it.

I've had 2 pair of costas and call it bad luck but the frames just don't hold up for me. So now I'm looking for something that I will not be so upset if they get broken.

Thanks for all your comments, as a distributor for this line, I will happily discuss any of your questions or concerns.
If I do not answer you right away please contact me at 985-750-1123, my name is Scott.
I have had a few pair of various glasses--and to summarize the whole thing without sounding like a salesman (which I am not--doing this as my stimulas plan since the oilfield is slow right)--the hold up when dropped, they are affordable for the working man, and with their guarantee you really can't go wrong.
Thanks in advance

Is there really a big difference in cheaper glasses????

Should have some on the way to try out. Hopefully I am pleased with them.

I think the biggest difference with the cheap glasses may be that they scratch easier. Sometimes you get some that the lense pops out easily as well. I have owned several of the cheaper pair of glasses but am ready to take a step up.

I bought a pair of the Costa Del Mar glasses at a sports show back in the early 1990's and at that time I had to send the frames to Florida to put prescription lens in for me. I've had those glasses now for over 17 plus yrs. Couple years ago did have a local optician put in new prescription into the same frames. They have been great sunglasses to use on the water and they are still going strong now but things do wear out eventually.

This morning after reading this thread I emailed Fishgillz asking if they sold prescription glasses thinking I'll probably be needing some new frames one of these days. Must admit they promptly replied that they do not have a prescription sunglass program at this time.

I'm a Guide here in the south Louisiana and I been using fishgillz for 3 years and I will never pay the price for Costa, Oakley. After 3 years I'm on my second pair of fishgillz. I had some costa and they blew out of the boat and I was sick for 2 weeks but fishgillz blew out I turned around and picked them up as they floated right back to me and as far as the lens. There is no differant than the good ones. As I sight fish tripletails I can see the fish really good. So I would recommend them to any fellow fisherman are beach person. And StraightShooter has a good deal going here on the site for you guys.

I had a customer last week who was a former boxer--broken nose a few times--the Santa Cruz worked out for him--he even responded later saying he made a kayak fishing trip and they worked great, no slippage or aggravation to the skin during his trip--please let us know if we can help you--Thanks--Scott 'StraightShooter' Ard

I have been using htem for the past 2 years and have nothing but good things to say. They are very clear and the fact that they float is a bonus. I have a pair of costa del mars and they are still in the box. (won as a prize in tourney).
