    Is VR28 Blue Irid that same base as VR28 Black iridium? Only difference is the blue iridium coating on the outside?

    I assume so but couldn't find an answer anywhere.

    Yes. But you won't find VR28 Blue Iridium, it's just called Blue Iridium.

    From L to R - Ice, Blue Iridium (old school 80's/90's), Blue Iridium (modern, VR28 base)

    ...maybe? Doesn't make much sense. Blue iridium is VR28 with a blue iridium.

    Yup, they use VR28 Blue on Fast Jacket and also Jawbone/Racing Jacket. I can't see any difference between
    Blue Iridium and VR28 Blue Iridium though. Just watch out for the Frogskins Blue Iridium, which is a whole different lens. I believe the Frog Blue uses a grey base lens.
