    I didn't check to see if this was ever posted before but, anyone who has pink iridium lenses i have a few questions for you:

    * Are they somewhat like clear, yellow, persimmon lenses to use at night?
    * On a sunny day, how much light would you say it blocks compared to other lenses?
    * Are they worth it to buy a blacklight and keep the lens?

    Thanks!
    - Kyle :biggrin:

    if you live in an area where you can use them, then yes, it's worth getting the BLs for the lens. =)

    Pink Iridium is one of favorite Oakley lenses - I live in the Seattle area, so keep that in mind. I find these a perfect lens for overcast or partly cloudy days. I personally wouldn't use it for night or sunny days, I use it for the same conditions as Slate, although Pink does let in more light. And in my opinion, a great lens to have in your collection - I believe before the Blacklights, it was only available in the Paul Smith Pink pair and the STPLs!

    The Pink Iridium on the Blacklight Frogskins is much lighter then the Pink Iridium Monster Pups - could be because of the base curve or the batch - but they're really good on rainy, cloudy days :eek:) I also know they'll be doing a Pink Iridium Miss Conduct in the Spring/Summer!
