    Hey all

    Just wanted to know, for those of you who might have both of these lenses, which ones you prefer and why, or if they're pretty much the same... this is for the Flak Jacket XLJ lenses.

    I noticed there's a $20 difference in price (deep blue iridum polarized are $90 vs Prizm deep waters at $110)

    I already have a pair of the polarized shallow blue iridiums and wanted to pick up a pair for deep water/offshore too but wasn't sure if it's worth the $20 up charge on the Prizms.

    What do you guys think?

    Or was that "yes" as in "yes, they are pretty much the same and you should just get whatever's cheaper" ?


    Anyone else?

    lol ok, thanks! I think I'll pull the trigger since I have a 40% off code :)

    Yea I keep hearing good things about them. I haven't even used the shallow blues much but at least I'll be ready the next time I'm able to go out and fish hahaha.

    Very nifty :) I placed the order on the XLJs (maybe I should have picked up the regular non-XLJs but I guess the extra 'coverage' doesn't hurt). Can't wait to test them out on the water (yea right, it'll probably be a long time since we just had a kid)

    Haha got a 3 year old here! And likely another in the near future... I know all about being too busy!

    And yes - good call on the XLJ in my opinion!
