    What are the pros and cons of both? I currently have the radarlocks with black iridium and oo red iridium polarized.

    Vr28 is a contrast lens. Very soothing to look through, almost a copper tint looking through it. Great in any light condition.

    Slate is like a lighter black iridium. Neutral colors, not ideal for really bright conditions. More of an aesthetic lens in my opinion.

    So the 28 would be more along the lines of the g30 then?

    judging by what u alr have, get the slates.

    BIP- for super bright days

    ooRed- contrast + mid-range


    Slate- mid-low light with neutral transmission... nice when you get "tired" of the contrast bases. everything looks crisp!

    Love slate iridium lenses as they keep everything neutral color-wise but cut down glare! They are my go-to lens as i get to wear them almost all day!

    Love em both i might give vr28 Black the nod as a personal pref but Slate is an underrated lens by many The local O store never stocks it I have 2 Flaks and one SJ with them I have about 5 Flaks and 2 SJ with vr28 Black I am old school tho and like vr28's with Browns not Blacks as is the trend it seems....
