    Does anyone have a pair of black iridium and slate iridium they could take a photo of next to each other so I could see a comparison. I'm wanting to buy another custom and haven't owned a slate iridium in a while. Also, I know they are both iridium coated, but which one has more of a mirror look?

    Definitely Black iridium, I have slate iridium in my canteen's and they don't have nearly the mirrored look Black iridium has. It's a very light lens, you see your eye's much easier. It's a great lens but to me not really a fan. Doesn't seem dark enough, and i don't like how an iridium lens is so transparent.... hope this helped.
    I'd put Chrome first, Black second, and Slate iridium third on level of reflective mirror look :D
