    Considering picking up a set of HI Persimmon for my Flaks
    Does anyone have any pics of the lenses in a frame? (preferably flak, but it doesn't matter)
    Also, can someone offer me a quick review of the lens?

    Thanks :)

    What frame color do you want to see them in? I should have time to do it this afternoon.

    HI Persimmon is basically a higher contrast, lower glare version of persimmon. It's a great low light lens.

    What are you using it for?

    What's the difference between hi persimmon and persimmon? Iridium?

    HI Persimmon is a great lens, I have it on my Splice goggles.

    The high intensity lenses have a blue iridium coating over the base lens. They really have a lot more contrast.

    H.I. yellow previously even had the name H.I. Blue.

    Does anyone happen to know the light transmission percentage on the HI Persimmon lenses for sunglasses such as the Flak or the Juliet pictured above? The Oakley site only lists it for snow goggles and MX goggles but not for sunglasses. And as we all know, the transmission % is often different for goggles, even though the tint has the same name. Anyone know offhand?

    I was planning on using them during overcast/darker days seeing as the only other lenses I have for my Flak are fire iridium.
    Considering picking up some G30 lenses for golf. Do they make a big difference on golf courses as opposed to fire?
