    hi guys,
    What is Tungsten iridium polarized like? how much does it differ from bronze iridium and titanium iridium?
    I'm deciding between tungsten iridium polarized versus OO Black iridium polarized for a pitbull frame.

    thanks.

    Tungsten and Titanium are very similar. Both have a bronze base but the titanium has a heavier iridium coating, so tunsgten will make your eyes more visible than titanium. Both are great lense though.

    I really like tungsten iridium polarized. Very pleasant view. But like they said, your eyes are pretty visible.

    Anyone have a Tungsten wire frame? Is it a bronzish color? Or more gold? Hard to tell from some of the pictures I've seen.

    My Ti Crosshairs are tungsten polarized. Nice lens. A bit bright for full sun perhaps, but I enjoy them. I think the color doesn't come through the reflection like gold does, but they're definitely a brown lens.

    Thanks Rustspot. Was looking for insight on a tungsten wire frame as well as the lenses if possible.
