    Hi all!!!

    I cannot decide myself wich lens color for my future Tailend :D

    From a side, if I think to the design of the frame, it inspires to me with any doubt Fire Iridium, but if I think to wear them every day maybe Ice Iridium will be more discrete.

    I'm not considering BI and Daily PRIZM because i prefer them on other frames

    Tell me yours ;)

    Have you looked through a Fire lens? They add a yellowish orange tint to everything. Some people like it, some don't.

    I've never looked through them but I know they have a little of contrast... usually I wear VR28BIP and Warm Grey, how I can compare them?

    I'v never had a neutral lens on my Oakleys :D

    I never looked through a VR28BIP, but from the lens simulator here: Oakley | Lens Tints those seem more extreme than the Fire.

    Thank you, how they perform in the brightest days?

    Here in north of Italy from April to September we have full sun without clouds, and if Fire it's too "light" I'll go for sure with Ice Iridium

    Fire is ok in sunlight, but based on what I know about ice, ice blocks more sun. This video talks about the most common iridium lenses.

    I think Ice looks great in this frame.

    I'm going with fire. It's a crazy pair, it needs a lens that stands out.

    I'm thinking the same as you!

    But It's hard to choose: function vs stand out :)
