    Hello all, long time Oakley admirer here. I have been looking at Oakley radars for quite some time but I had a hard time justifying the price. Just recently I discovered OakleySI which I am eligible for and was wondering what the price would be for these two items to see if it is worth the hassle. It would be awesome if a member could price check these items:

    ┬░ Si Radar
    https://www.oakleysi.com/Product_Detail.cfm?id=328&sid=28&pid=1

    ┬░Radar Radar replacement lens (g26)
    https://www.oakleysi.com/Product_Detail.cfm?id=525&pid=4

    Thank you for the help and if this isn't allowed somehow then please don't hesitate to tell me.

    If you're eligible go ahead and sign up.

    I believe the discount is usually between 50% and 35% from normal retail depending on what the item is.

    Okay will do! I was curious if the standard Grey lens will be enough to reflect the glare of water sports such as rowing and sailing or will I have to shell out the extra cash for polarized lenses for the glare protection.

    As a rule of thumb for me, personally, water requires polarized lenses.

    If you're going to be using them on the water, definitely get a polarized pair with iridium coating. The discount on the pair you're referring to there is just shy of 40%. If you got something from the "Off Duty" section that would have other lens choices or Black Iridium, the discount is usually closer to 20-30%.

    Hey everyone, sorry for bumping this thread from the depths, I have an update.

    They just arrived a few days ago with the polar black iridium on its way soon. I've already forgot I'm wearing them twice and I keep thinking it's overcast outside because I never take them off. I'm very impressed with the clarity but I know the polarized lens will be needed for watersports. Thanks for leading me in the right direction!
    [Sorry about the picture, it was taken at night, I'm pretty sure you guys know what they look like, though. ;)]
